First day of Spring #139 Creative Moments




Good day

It is time for another challenge over at Creative moments. Though it is always a anything goes challenge we also have a theme if you need a challenge and what better than First day of Spring!

Spring is associated with new life and growth but unfortunately we tend to forget about death that is part of the cycle. We received some sad news over the WE, so my spring project ended up in a sympathy card. My image is from Bugaboo called roses and butterflies. I really scratch through my bits and piece to put this project together with different dies to glue it together. Image coloured with Prisma pencils.

Challenges I took my inspiration from
Stella says sketch #606
The Outlawz Tuesday Colour challenge 20 March - Shades of green
The Outlawz Twisted Thursday - Tic Tac Toe - Die cuts, free space, any shade of green
Use your stuff #304 - On the border
Sweet Stampin' - Use your scraps

Hope you'll come and join us in our lovely spring projects at Creative Moments.
Hugs from Africa!

For a final touch I added rhinestones in her hair.

Primrose




Good day

It has been quite a while playing with one of my favourite artist's designs - Aurora Wings. I follow her on Facebook and am quite inspired by all her creations and the designers colouring the images. It is amazing and I just love the detail. I used Primrose Sprite today. I had to Google to see how a real primrose flower looks like and the soft colours looked so delicate. Though mine did not ended up as delicate. The designer paper is from Paper Flowers from First Edition. Die is from Spellbinder A2 Locking Loops and the swirl is from Marianne's design. I used the thread to add the beads and butterfly.

Challenges I took my inspiration from:
Aurora Wings #64 Bingo - Lace, Die, Thread
The Crafty Addicts #46 - Mother
Cute Card Thursday#520 - Mothers
Creative Knockouts #235 - Dies / punches
The Paper Shelter #329 - Let it be spring
Cheerful Sketches March

Thank you and have a fantastic day!
Hugs From Africa!

Good day

It feels so good to be on time with my fellow DT members over at Creative Moments. With my internet problems of the last two months it was quite frustrated not to be on time. This week we are celebrating international woman's day on the 8th of March. So we want to see project for women or with women on it. I image is Abigail Sunflower Fae from Scrap 'n Dipity one of our lovely sponsors this fortnight. I used some Perfect Pearl from Ranger on her wings and coloured her using my new Prisma colour pencils. Played with papers from my stash.

I took inspiration from the following challenges:
The Outlaws Tuesday Colour challenge with twist of adding bling
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 #131
Incy Wincy Designs 5 March - 19 March - Ultra violet
Creative Craft Cottage #105 - Make it feminine

Thank you and pop over to Creative Moments to join in the fun and maybe won a prize from our lovely sponsors.

Hugs from Africa!
