First Challenge of The Year - Ally's Angels

 Hi everyone,

I hope you all all O.K. I must admit I am finding this lockdown tougher than the first one, maybe it's to do with the cold weather or the fact that January always seems to be a gloomy month. 

Today we have our first 'Anything Goes' challenge at Ally's Angels of the year.

I have colourd up one of the beautiful brand new stamps from Dreamerland Crafts called Who is My Loved One


I have used my trusty distress reinkers to colour the scene: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Liptick, Victorian Velvet and Hickory Smoke.

The heart peeping out of the top left hand corner and the ballet shoes are Marianne dies.

Ali is offering this fantastic prize to the winner:



We would love you join in with our challenge.

That's all from me today.

Take care and look after yourselves.

Hugs

Gina xx

First Challenge of the Year at Creative Inspirations

 Good morning everyone,

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and were able to share it with family and friends. Sadly for us we were placed in tier 4 just before Christmas, so Christmas for us was cancelled. Anyway I wish you all a very happy and healthy New Year, I hope it's a much better year for everyone and hopefully it will bring us hope of a more normal life.

Once again I have to apologise for not posting much recently. The exciting news is that my husband and I are moving house. We have lived in our current house for 26 years, so we have been very busy decluttering and packing what we can to get ahead of the game before returning to work next week. We don't have a date yet, but are hoping it will be mid/end of February. I am down to the bare essentlials in my craft room too. 

Today we have our first challenge of the year beginning at Creative Inspirations. Our challenges have changed from monthly to two monthly for the time being. Our theme for this challenge is ......

Animal Antics

I  struggled with this theme as I don't have much in the way of animal stamps, however I came up with this



I am not sure what the name of the these cards are, but it's a form of pop up. 

The stamps are by Craft Consortium and are called Little Fawn and Friends, there are a total of 7 clear stamps. As always I painted them with distress reinkers.

To make the pop up section, I used a Lawn Fern Pivot pop up die.


To give the front of the card a bit more interest, I added a bow, die cut leaves which were dipped in a Stazon clear ink pad, sprinkled with shabby white frantage and heat set, die cut tassels and I also added some pine cones and a berry.

The papers were distressed along the edges and then painted with some white gesso.

Our sponsor for the next two months is......

 

who are offering the lucky winner a $15 gift e-card.

That's all from me today.

Thank you for popping in.

Stay safe and well.

Hugs

 The same method has been used for the die cut snowflakes, sleigh and branches.
