CCT Sparkles

The theme at CCT this week is Sparkles. Another quick card from me using a Hanglar image coloured with Lyra Polycolor pencils, a Sue Wilson embossing folder and a Spellbinders die set. The snowflake is a Tim Holtz die cut from glitter card and of course I added lots of glitter to the image and background which doesn't really show up in the photo.

I'm hoping this posts ok as we are on holiday in Devon this week.

CCT One Layer

The theme at CCT this week is one layer cards. I have stamped a Tim Holtz bird crazy stamp onto kraft card and given him a santa hat. The images are coloured with my new Lyra Polycolor pencils and I have added a bit of glitter and an Inkadinkadoo sentiment.

CCT Masculine

This weeks theme at CCT is masculine. I made a card using a Tim Holtz image which I have coloured with my new Lyra Polycolors, they are so nice to use and blend really easily. The camera was coloured with just 1 grey pencil. I inked the edge of the card with Hickory Smoke distress ink.
The background is silver mirri card embossed with a Tim Holtz embossing folder. I have put slate alcohol ink onto the mirri card, which looks really effective but doesn't show up in the photo very well. The sentiment and filmstrip are also Tim Holtz dies.

My mum really enjoyed her 90th birthday and we had a lovely party with family and friends.
