CCT Anything Goes

This weeks challenge at CCT is Anything Goes. I made a very quick birthday card with a Snoopy stamp and a left over piece of DP.

I hope you all had a good Christmas and got lots of lovely pressies, I got some fabby Stampin Up goodies off my hubby.
Have a good week and enjoy your New Year celebrations.

CCT So Charming

The challenge at CCT this week is So Charming and we'd like to see your projects which feature charms. I haven't done a card this week instead I decided to decorate a mannequin which has been lurking in my crafty stash for about 6 years now!! I painted the mannequin with gesso and acrylic paints and then stamped the various Stampin Up stamps onto tissue with Versacolor inkpads which I then heated embossed to set the ink. It would of been easier to use dye inks but I specifically wanted these colours to match my daughters bedroom. I then stuck the images onto the mannequin using Mod Podge and added a charm, piece of lace and the crystally trim (not too sure what the proper name is !). To finish off the base I added a few flowers, a pearl which I coloured to match with Copics and a grungepaper butterfly coloured with the same inks as the stamped images. Luckily the girls love it and I have now got a couple of others to do for birthday pressies.

I love this stamp set by Stampin Up, the images are so pretty and the set also includes a fab swirl stamp. Hubby has got me some Stampin Up goodies for Christmas I can't wait to see what he chose from the rather long list I gave him!!!
Have a great week, i can't believe how fast the time is going at the moment!

CCT Red & Green

This weeks challenge at CCT is red and green. I have made a Christmas card using this gorgeous Stampendous stamp which I stamped the image onto cream card, distressed with Distress Ink and coloured the image with Prismacolors. I added various Frantage glitters and powders and some ultra fine glitter to the berries.

I hope you'll be able to join in this weeks challenge as we have another fab prize. Enjoy your week.
