This weeks theme at CCT is Outer Space/Stars. This is what I came up with. The card has been stamped with Stampin Up Gorgeous Grunge stamps and then heat embossed with silver embossing powder. I added lots of Fran-tage and sequins and used Mama Elephant dies for the stars. The sentiment is done with Avery Elle alphabet stamps and another Mama Elephant die.

The theme at CCT this week is family, perfect timing for me as its my hubbys birthday at the beginning of August so I have made a card for the children to give him. I stamped this cute Penny Black image onto watercolour card and coloured it with my new Kuretake Clean Color pens. I highly recommend these as they blend so easily and have some lovely pale as well as vibrant colours. The 'dad' is cut with Tim Holtz Sizzix Alphanumeric dies and the bone and sentiment are from the Avery Elle Furry Friends stamp and die set. I doodled a border to the image.

This weeks theme at CCT is In The Round. I recently treated myself to the Making Waves dies by Neat and Tangled,I think it is such a nice set. The stamps and matching dies are Lawn Fawn and I coloured the images with Copics. The circles in the background are another new stamp from Neat and Tangled, called falling Circles. The fishtails tags are a Die-Namics die.
I've ordered myself a set of Kuretake Clean Color brush pens which will hopefully arrive today or tomorrow, I'm looking forward to having a play with them. I've watched a few You Tube videos but any tips would be great.

The blue card is stamped and clear embossed with a MFT stamp and the sentiment is Darkroom Door. I have embossed the black card with a wood texture embossing folder. The dies are also Mama Elephant. Hopefully he will like it although I think he will probably prefer the champagne and chocolate!
