CCT Can't Stop The Rain

This weeks challenge at CCT is Can't Stop The Rain. I have made a quick tag which I coloured with Distress Stains. I was going to add various embellishments to the tag but I really liked how the background turned out and when I stamped the Tim Holtz Umbrella Man image it looked like he was walking down a path so I left it as it was and just stamped the Docrafts cog stamp in the corner and a dotty stamp under his feet. The seam binding is also coloured with Distress Stains.

Have a good Thursday.

CCT Cake Walk

This weeks challenge at CCT is Cake Walk. I used a Penny Black image coloured with Copics for my card, this is another stamp which I have had for years and never used!! The papers are from Docrafts, these have got to be my favourite papers at the moment and I die cut them with Die-Namics Blueprints 1 dies.

Have a good Thursday.

CCT Butterfly Kisses

We have a fab theme at CCT this week and its Butterfly Kisses. I have been having a bit of a change from card making and decided to decorate a canvas. I have painted the back with gesso and then made a stencil using a Tim Holtz movers and shapers die. I applied modelling paste through the stencil and then painted the canvas with acrylic paints. I added a little gold paint from a Tim Holtz paint dabber over the swirls and some flowers cut with an EK Success punch. I distressed the flowers and added a pearl to the centers. The background text was stamped on to tissue and applied with Mod Podge and the butterflies are cut with an X Cut punch and embossed with Fran-tage Shabby White embossing powder. I got the quote from the internet. I really enjoyed making this canvas and have a few more waiting to be decorated.

I hope you will be able to join in this weeks challenge as we have a fab prize from Whiff of Joy.

CCT Something Borrowed

I can't believe its Thursday again already, the time is really flying by at the moment. I hope you all had a good Easter. The theme at CCT this week is Something Borrowed. I made a little tag for my son's birthday and 'borrowed' a bit of garden string for it!! The image is an old Greetings Farm one which I coloured with Copics and the papers are Basic Grey. I am slowly using up some of my old stash and I'm having to get out all my old stamps to use because there aren't many new stamps that I like at the moment, which in a way is good because I can save a few pennies!

Have a good week.
