CCT In The Round

This weeks theme at CCT is In The Round. I recently treated myself to the Making Waves dies by Neat and Tangled,I think it is such a nice set. The stamps and matching dies are Lawn Fawn and I coloured the images with Copics. The circles in the background are another new stamp from Neat and Tangled, called falling Circles. The fishtails tags are a Die-Namics die.


I've ordered myself a set of Kuretake Clean Color brush pens which will hopefully arrive today or tomorrow, I'm looking forward to having a play with them. I've watched a few You Tube videos but any tips would be great.

I have missed a couple of challenges due to my holiday in Prague which we really enjoyed and I have been doing overtime to pay for the holiday! Hopefully I'm back now.

This weeks theme at CCT is Fathers day. I made a bottle hanger for my hubby and decorated it with stamps from Mama Elephant. The blue card is stamped and clear embossed with a MFT stamp and the sentiment is Darkroom Door. I have embossed the black card with a wood texture embossing folder. The dies are also Mama Elephant.  Hopefully he will like it although I think he will probably prefer the champagne and chocolate!

PBS Showers

An extra card from me this week which is most unusual! We had a fabulous few days in Prague, the highlights of which were a trip to the zoo to see all their wonderful baby animals and a private guided tour of Terezin concentration camp. It's not mentioned much in the history books over here but was fascinating and our guide made it so interesting, I am trying to find out more about it.
While I was in Prague I treated myself to a set of Koh-I-Noor polycolor pencils, they are made in the Czech Republic and are fairly inexpensive to buy there. This is the first image I have coloured with them and am very pleased, they are easy to use and don't require you to press hard.
The image is Penny Black and the papers are MFT, a quick and simple card and perfect for trying out my new pencils.

I would like to enter this card into the Penny Black Saturday challenge which is showers.

CCT Add a Quote

The theme at CCT this week is Add A Quote.I have made a Christmas tag using a Penny Black stamp and Mama Elephant stamps and dies. The reindeer are coloured with Copics and I added some Glossy Accents to their noses. I haven't made a shaker card for many years but I really enjoyed making it, I just need to remember how to stop the sequins sticking to the acetate!


Hubby and I are off to Prague for a few days on Sunday with my son and his girlfriend, I'm really looking forward to it. We have a trip to Terezin concentration camp booked and are also planning a day at the zoo. I'm also meeting up with a friend I worked with a few years ago.

CCT Homemade Embellishments

The theme at CCT this week is Homemade Embellishments. I have used another Penny Black image for my card which I have coloured with Copics. The circle die and papers are MFT and the tag die and sentiment are Mama Elephant. The flowers are made with EK Success punches and the leaves are Martha Stewart punch. Not sure about the pink flowers now, maybe lilac would have been better, although they look better in real life than in the photo!
