time for tea

Hello my friends. It is time for another TTCRD challenge. Time is going so quickly, that I am finding it very difficult to keep up.

Our sponsor for this week is DL.ART. 

The prize is $10 voucher to either store.

We could choose what we wanted to do for this week so I chose to work with some transfers I had and some foils. They are both from Crafter's Companion. I then matched them up with G45 paper from the botanical tea range. You can see that I used the negative foil to put an image on the back of the card.

The die cut flowers and foliage are also from Crafter's Companion. Twine and pearls are from my stash. I also used gold mirri card, chestnut brown card and ivory card. And taht is my offer for this week. 

Please join us for another TTCRD anything goes challenge. See you on the other side, Theresa xx

super birthday

So being Tuesday it is time for another TTCRD anything goes challenge. 

This week our sponsor is Dr Digi's House of Stamps. The prize is 2 digis from the shop.

I chose to work with Comic sentiments. I chose this sentiment as I wanted to try this technique I had watched on Hochanda. I coloured in spectrum noir illustrator pens and then glazed over with Sakura gel pens. For the background, I just used 5 different shades of blue and used dots from the sentiment out. I went further out with the lighter ones and kept the darker ones in the centre.
So now it is over to you. See you on the other side, Theresa xx.

This is the latest card that I had as inspiration for the TTCRD anything goes challenge. It was for last Tuesday but I have become so disorganised that I never post anything on time.

Anyway the image is from Polkadoodles and he is called Rocco. I thought he looked sweet and would make a good boy's card for the several party invites that my little one gets.
He is coloured in with spectrum noir illustrator pens as is the background. For the clouds, I used the blender pen to remove colour.
So go take a look at the magazine. it is full of inspiration, step by step tutorials and also a video tutorial. Theresa xx
