Anything goes at Creative Moments!




Good day

Today I'm excited to share this project that I have made for Creative Moments' new challenge. We are sponsored by Artsy Stamper this time and I used Hunter with dog from the Outdoors man masculine set. Since I know a few hunters I thought I'll play a bit with it. Paper is from my stash and I used a chevron die from Marianne Design. The sentiment and bird are from a Sizzix. I used Prisma pencils for colouring. The fire arm is a brat that I had.

Challenges I took inspiration from:
Cute Card Thursday #685 - Anything goes
Creative Knockouts #400 - Anything goes
Colour Crazy Craft Wk18 - Anything goes hand coloured

Hope you'll join us at Creative Moments!
Hugs from Africa!

Guest designer for The Outlawz Tuesday Color challenge






 Good day 

On this lovely crisp Tuesday. Here in the Southern tip of Africa winter is knocking on our doors. There is a chill in the air, though blue skies. Today I want to share a project as guest designer. I was asked to be the month of May's guest designer at the Outlawz Tuesday Color challenge, of which I am very fond. Then Bugaboo is our sponsor, so such a lovely combination of challenges. We were given this lovely colour palette and the twist of starting with a C. That was the bigger challenge to find a C that can go with these colours. Well Chef Pierre platter sprang to mind and I found this piece of gingham paper in the right colours from Hide Away collection from First Edition. Then I have found some food embellishments from my scrapbook stash and everything just fell in place, so the C twist became Chef Pierre and cuisine. 

Challenges I'm joining:
Lemon Shortbread #145 - Anything goes

Hope you'll come and join us in this delightful spring colour combo.
Hugs from Africa!

Travel




Good day

It has been a while now that I wanted to do something with this image from Sheepski Design, called Shopping in Yorkshire.  As I have missed a challenge with green, I still want to add green as focal colour. The Eiffel tower is a stamp and I used some cloud dies with some for the the clouds. Though I did not have a grey ink. The sentiment is from Cards und more. The rest of the image was colour with Prisma pencils. 

Challenges I took inspiration from: 
Crafty Sentiment - Anything goes 
Double D - April Showers
Crazy 4 Challenges C4C581 - Inspirational photo
Sheepski Design - Facebook Challenge 59

Thank you and have a great day!

Dragonfly wishes





Good day

 Sometimes time just fly to fast and I cannot always finish all the projects I love to finish. So before I see, the week have past and there is a new challenge. Well, today I spend some time in my craft room, not only in preparation for my DT work, but also to finish some projects that I really want to finish in time. I played with an emboss stencil from Marianne Design for the daisies, but used my normal Prisma pencils to colour. Then I used a Couture Creations dragonfly in the blue as well as in vellum with a wish die in yellow and green for a shadow. A metal dot in the daisy and some rhinestone as finishing touch. I have to admit I start to love to make CAS projects. 

Challenges I took inspiration from:
Just Us Girls #581 - Photo week
The Sisterhood of Crafters - How does your garden grow?
The Outlawz Tuesday Colour Challenge 20 April - 3 May - Yellow, green, blue with die cuts

Thank you and have a fantastic day!
