Rock Star

We have a new challenge for you at CD Sunday this week. Wynn has chosen the theme Rock Star. So lets see everyone rocking it and joining in. 

I used Mimic Creations CD for my card. This is a fun CD because it allows you to pick a background and then add what images you would like to add. The cartoon images are from music, film and TV. I've used this CD before when I've been looking for something a little different. Once the image is designed it generates matching backing papers too. I used a die from Joanna Sheen's Signature range for the star burst.

It looks like being a soggy Sunday so more crafting later might be a nice way to spend the day.

Clarity Challenge - Anything Goes

I've decided I need to make more cards ready for Christmas so have taken the opportunity to make one with Clarity this month for their July Challenge No. 29 of Anything Goes.

I used my Gelli plate together with the mount to put it on. So much easier having the mount - I wish I'd got one sooner! I masked off the middle when I made the Gelli print so that I could stamp the lovely geese in the middle. I then masked the geese and added a moon mask which I used distress inks to make the landscape in the background. I used a white glaze pen to make the snow in the sky and used Spectrum Noir pencils to colour the birds. I framed the image using a black micron pen and stamped a Happy Christmas to finish.

Add a Stamped Image

Time for another challenge at CD Sunday and it is Christine's turn to choose the theme this time.

Christine would like us to add a stamped image.

I decided to use the Kimono CD from Crafter's Companion and printed off one of the pretty backing papers. I used a die by Crealies which looks to me like the Scrap Magic templates that were all the rage a few years back. Being a die I found this so much easier to use. I layered this up and then mounted it on another circular die cut from Spellbinders. The butterfly is from the Kimono range at Crafter's Companion. I used a stamp from the same set and used two printed backing papers for the paper piecing on her kimono. The corners were done using an embossing folder rubbed over with metalic wax. I

I do hope you will join us for this challenge and I will be visiting soon.
