Can't remember

Hello there my friends. Today's card is an unusual one for me. I shy away from using any rude words on my cards but I couldn't resist this image. As soon as I saw it I could see my friend and so I decided to work with it.

This is my inspiration for this weeks TTCRD anything goes challenge. Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps.

The lucky winner gets a $12 voucher to spend in the store.

My image can be found here. In actual fact it is a very simple card. I printed it on Sheena stamping card and coloured it in with spectrum noir illustrator pens.  I then cut out the image with sizzix dies and also the matting layers.

As for finishing touches, I added gold craft candy where the full stops were situated. I used gold sakura pen touch on the cup and added glossy accents to the lenses on her glasses

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

Silent night

Hello crafty friends. It is time for another TTCRD anything goes challenge. This week we have 2 sponsors, Rick St Dennis and Sparkle 'n Sprinkle.


The first one is offering 2 images as a prize whereas the latter are offering a $15 voucher to their shop.
My card today is from Rick St Dennis and the image is called Silent night.

I printed it twice and coloured in one image using spectrum noir illustrator pens. For the second image I only coloured in the holly and berries and cut out the image to form an arch. I then stamped some bricks using a Visible image stamp. 

I also used my Faber Castell polychromos to add more definition to the picture and then finished it off with a clear sparkle pen and a versamark pen and clear embossing powder on berries.

I have to confess that I never managed to finish the second card. And now my first Christmas card is done!!! 
So now it is over to you, remember that anything goes; hugs Theresa xx.
