TTCRD weekly anything goes challenge



Hello my friends and welcome back to another TTCRD anything goes challenge. This week we are sponsored by Anne's digital art.

No photo description available.

I chose to work with the image called fence as it gives me a certain serenity to look at the image. I coloured it with promarkers and used some patterned papers that I got from The Works.



Please join us on this weeks challenge and good luck. See you on the other side, hugs Theresa xx.

bee happy

Hello, my crafty friends. Another Tuesday is here and so it is again time for another TTCRD anything goes challenge. 


This week our sponsor is We Are 3 Digital Shop. We were asked to work with this bee set. I must say that the background papers are lovely and have a great colour scheme. I knew what I wanted to do as soon as I saw the papers.


So I printed out 4 of the ones I wanted and created the above card. The sentiment and beehive dies are from Sizzix by Tim Holtz. The stitched circle is by Crealis and the plain circle is tonic.
I used some black gems and clear sparkle pen and I was finished.


Now it is over to you. Don't forget to check out what my teammates have produced with the same set and while you're there link your projects. See you on the other side, hugs Theresa xx.

On my mind

Hello crafty peeps. I have just realized that I'm late to the parade. It's time for another TTCRD anything goes challenge and this week our sponsor is Jeremiah Ketner who is offering a whopping 5 images of choice and 30% off any images from his Etsy site.


I chose to work with On my mind which you can find here. I love colouring in these images making them come to life. I coloured her in with Faber Castell polychromos pencils and added some highlights with a white Posca pen and some dimension with Tonic Nuvo drops.


For further inspiration hop over to the blog to see what my teamies produced. See you on the other side, hugs Theresa xx.

Sunflowers

Hello and welcome back to another TTCRD anything goes challenge. This week we are sponsored by Sheepski designs and she is offering 3 images from her shop. I do love working with her images. They are very versatile.


I chose to work with a sunflower image that you can find here. I love sunflowers as I think they are such happy flowers. So all I did is printed them out and coloured them with Faber Castell polychromos pencils and added some white highlights.
For the background, I used a piece of Gelli print that was left over from another card and then stamped the word background with a Simon Says Stamp stamp. I used archival inks for stamping. Where the two joined I added a very thin strip of antique gold card. Some gems finished off the card.



So now it is over to you. See you on the other side, hugs Theresa xx.

bloom canvas


Hello there my friends. It is time for another TTCRD anything goes challenge. This week we are sponsored by Newton's Nook and I chose to work with one of their freebies called bloom.


I started by adding modelling paste through stencils and allowing it to dry. Then I painted the surface using watered down Deco Art acrylic paints and sprinkling with table salt. Once dry I removed the salt and mod podged the flowers onto the surface.


For the flowers, I printed the image several times in different sizes. Then I coloured them in with the deco art acrylics and then stamped over with a Simon says Stamp background stamp.


Finally, I added details with a black sharpie and a white posca pen. The black washi tape is made from masking tape painted black and stamped over with white.


So now it is over to you. Join us at TTCRD for a chance to win some goodies. See you on the other side, hugs Theresa xx

Orchid

Hello my crafty friends and welcome to another TTCRD anything goes challenge. This week we are sponsored by Morgan's Artworld and this is one of the images that comes in a pair called orchid and rose pair.



I had this image already and decided to use it again. I do love colouring in flowers. Once again I used Faber Castell polychromos pencils. The patterned paper is from a pad by The Works. I thought it went really well with this image. 


And that is all about my card. Remember that our challenge is always anything goes and good luck. See you on the other side, Hugs Theresa xx.

sunflower for mother's day


Hello friends. It is time for another TTCRD challenge and as always it is anything goes. This week our sponsor is Stix2 anything 
No photo description available.


So I decided to post the card I made for my mother on mother's day. The background is made by inking a piece of white card with antique linen, frayed burlap, vintage photo and gathered twigs distress oxides. I then stamped with AALL and Create stamps using gathered twigs, frayed burlap and vintage photo distress oxides. I then used stencils and squeezed lemonade, mustard seed, twisted citron distress oxides to add further details.


The sunflower is a Stampendous stamp that I coloured with polychromos Faber Castell pencils. It is mounted on foam squares and actually twists. I saw it on a video tutorial on Jennifer McGuire's blog here.
The dies are generic. I mounted 3 die cuts to add height and then went over with a clear wink of Stella pen.
And now it is over to you. See you on the other side, hugs Theresa xx.
