more Easter

Hello there crafters and welcome back to another TTCRD anything goes challenge.

This week we are sponsored by Createful Heart Designs. They are offering the 4 digi images that the DT worked with as a prize. I chose to work with 2 images as I really liked them both. Since I have used another of the images about I haven't put a sentiment on it yet and so I haven't included it here.

The first image I used is called Easter Cross. I printed it on Neenah smooth white card and coloured it in with promarkers. I deliberately didn't colour the roses red as I felt it was appropriate to use the softer tones here.

The second image is called Florals set of 3. Again it is printed on Neenah card and coloured with promarkers. I actually rotated the image and formed a wreath with it, so it housed the sentiment in the centre.

For both images, I then die cut them and matted them on plain card and then onto patterned paper which is from a 12x12 pad from The Works. I also added Nuvo drops.
The sentiment is a generic one. I die cut each one 3 times and stacked them for added dimension. Then I went over with a clear Wink of Stella and once dry covered them in glossy accents. 

For further inspiration please go to TTCRD to see what my teammates have created. See you on the other side, hugs Theresa xx

Hello there my crafty friends. You must be wondering what is going on. Blogged twice in as many weeks!!! Well, it so happens that over at TTCRD it was Team B's turn again to offer inspiration for this week.

Our sponsor this time are Gecko Galz Studio. I picked the image to work with this time and I went for a set of silhouettes called Charming silhouette stamps

This is a great set and really worth having as it caters for so many occasions. I really was inspired by it and went to town creating cards. I have 2 more in the making...

I printed the images on printable acetate and so the images here are flipped horizontally. I then used distress oxide inks to colour them from the back and assembled them in the ways shown below.

This card is different in that it is a shaker card. So I did not colour the image but instead put patterned paper behind the aperture. I then put some sequins in for the shaker element.

The sentiments have all been created in the same way. I die cut each sentiment 3 times and stacked them together so they sat proud on the card. I then went over them with a clear Wink of Stella pen and after sticking them down I added glossy accents for the added dimension.

For further inspiration as to what you can create with this set please visit TTCRD to see what my teamies have come up with. please remeber that our challenge is always anything goes, so get crafting. See you on the other side, hugs Theresa xx.
