For this image I was a bit torn about what to do, I printed out small and big images and also made a background of the stamp. In the end I decided it was such a beautiful image on it’s own in it’s simplicity that it didn’t need a fanfare around it.
So with that in mind I printed the image – BIG – and coloured it with my Zig watercolour pens. I used a bit of brown card for some matting and finished up adding a simple Happy Birthday sentiment cut in brown with a yellow shadow. Everything was added to a big 8 x 8 inch white card – voila!
This week’s card is made with Art Palette from QKR Stampede.
When you are a crafter – I think we are all drawn to a pain palette. Part of me wanted to go with a tone on tone colour scheme for the palette, but in the end I decided to go all out and add lots of colour – just as you often see the palette. It is such a great and versatile design – and can be used for any occasion. It works great as a background to another image – or indeed as the main design with a burst of colour behind it. I may add some other images to this page later…..
I am absolutely obsessed with wreaths at the moment – well it’s been a while – just love what you can do with them. So when choosing an image for this weeks card it had to be the Shamrock Circle. It is such a beautiful and versatile wreath/circle and you can add anything at all to it.
For some reason as soon as I saw the image I thought of the iconic Andy Warhol bright and colourful squares! Why on earth I would think of this I have no idea, as the image could so easily have been used for a very delicate and feminine layout.
Well I decided to go with my first instinct and using my Zig Real Brush pens I set to colour in some outlandish and clashing colours.
The result……mmmmmm……..well, it’s different and pushed my comfortzone!

Hi crafty people,
This week’s project uses a fun digi stamp from Knitty Kitty named Puurfect Mjum which was printed onto 160 gsm white card and fuzzy cut with a white border. The image was mounted only purple, lilac and white card mounted onto each other – the last white layer was embossed first to create texture.
Various die cuts were cut from matching card from the new Crafter’s Companion Crafty Fun Collection (super fun collection!). Everything was mounted onto a 6 x 6 white card.
Dr. Digi’s House of Stamps is our sponsor this week and they are generously offering 2 digital stamps from their store to the challenge winner.
This week’s card was made by colouring the digital stamp with Copic Ciao pens. The card is a 6 x 6 white card where the front was folded back on itself. A green panel is cut to size and folded at the bottom.
Lime background papers where matted onto green card and added to the white card. A few floral flours and a Happy New Year sentiment were added to finish off the card.
