Lion love

We are back with a new sketch challenge over at Catch the Bug.
I was supposed to get this post up yesterday, but coming back from holiday and having had work done in our apartment while away, it took me time to get access to my computer station. It's quite the chaos in our apartment at the moment, but I know I will be so pleased when everything gets back into its place and everything has been tidied up...

I used the image Lion Love, colored with Promarkers. I cut the sentiment with a stitched cloud/speech bubble die from MFT.

    Coloring page and spotlight technique

    Over at Catch the Bug we have a color challenge this week.

    I used the Owls and Flowers coloring page. I decided t go with the spotlight technique, cutting a portion with a circle die and coloring only this part, with Promarkers and a white gel pen. The die cut sentiment is made with a Penny Black die. The googly eyes I found in m stash.

    Ink #196 - Paper Piercing

    We have a new challenge at Inkspirational - paper piercing. I chose to pierce the paper by stitching around the edges.

    The sweet angels image was sent to me my teamie Nonni and they are my favorite angels. I wish I had this stamp myself, but it seems to be a retired one. I colored with Promarkers and a white gel pen. The wings and stars have glitter glue on them. The background has a thin coat of watered gesso, and I used a stencil for the stars and a script stamp. And, again, I used my favorite chipboard sentiments.
    Please head over to the challenge blog to see inspiration from my teamies.

    Twofer Card Challenge - Critters

    I managed to squeeze in a little time from home refurbishment projects (which is why I have spent less time in blogland, plus preparing for a travel coming up in a week's time) to make two cards for the Twofer Card Challenge #20, where the theme is CRITTERS. 
    For both cards I used a mouse stamp from Penny Black, colored with Promarkers.
    I made a "sending hugs" and a Christmas card. 

    1) Sending hugs
    On my first card I stamped the image in a corner and cut a border and frame with dies from MFT. I stamped sending and used a die from Penny Black to make the die cut hugs. The kraft panel is embossed using an EF from Tim Holtz.
     This card is also for: 
    Allsorts - #537 Anything Goes
    Penny Black and More - Animals

    2) Christmas card
    For my second card I fussy cut the mouse and placed him onto a die cut tag. I used kraft colored ink and a script stamp on the tag. Added seambinding ribbon and string with two silver bells, as well as a Tim Holtz chipboard sentiment, which is my favorite embellishent at the moment.
     This card is also for:
    Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Anything Goes / optional: Use something Old or Neglected (bells)
    Winter Wonderland - Favorite embellishment (chipboard sentiment)

    Ink #195 - Crop

    We have a new challenge at Inkspirational and this timewe have a word prompt - CROP.

    I chose to crop an image my teamie Nonni sent me quite so time ago. I think they look like they are teamed up for a photo, so I die cut a Lawn Fawn photo frame for them.
    I colored them up with Promarkers, a white gel pen and glitter glue.
    I actually used glitter paste on the emossed part of the background, which looks nice IRL but doesn't show here. I sed an eossing folder from Tim Holtz.

    Please head over to the challenge blog to see inspiration from my teamies.

    Here I colored up 3 images: Christmas Cupcake - MistletoeChristmas Cupcake - Candy Canes and image from Gingerbread Wishes Set.

    I've added glossy accent and WoS for sparkle as well as a little bit of glitter glue on the whipped cream parts.
    I made a 'napkin' and dry emossed the backgrond for a wooden structure. The chipboard sentiment is a Tim Holtz one.
