Passion for Promarkers Week 22 Poppy & Forest Green

This week at the Passion for Promarkers challenge Blog there is a colour challenge Forest Green & Poppy. Using only 2 colours is hard work! how do I get the shading? well I used the foredt green over the poppy red and then went over it again with the poppy red to blend. I used the blender pen to take out some of the colour on the boots for the hi lighted area.

Gift Box - Moving Along with The Times Challenge 17

This week the challenge at Moving Along With The Times is Anything But A Card. As I have just finished making a little gift box I thought I would enter it into the challenge.

I bought the plain box from Hobbycraft for 79p

I used my Nesties Lables Die to cut out a fancy top (sturdy cardboard) for the lid and another from the DP, the same paper I covered the rest of the box with . The DP was bought from Threadbare's shop, It is brilliant for this kind of project as it is quite strong and is double sided
Then out came the distress inks! I also decorated the inside

I then distressed some mulberry roses, sizzix cut leaf and sizzix cut swirls and added some pearls and lace!

Just Magnolia Wk 26 Sketch by Mina

The Wk 26 challenge at Just Magnolia is a Sketch by Mina, it is quite a simple one which I like :0) I have had my Tilda coloured up for a while and I bought the Ribbon while I was browsing Hobby Craft on Friday so orange was the colour for this card. I think the brown tones down the colour a little so it's not so in your face ( I Hope!)

Yellow Orange & Black or White - DU2DS

Yellow Orange & Black or White is the theme this fortnight over at DU2DS Friday Challenge This was quite a challenge for me, having to choose an image that would lend itself to this colour combo. As it is nearly Halloween and the colours suited this theme I went with a Halloween card and the goth dragon from Dustin Pike jumped out at me, so here is my card. We are ignoring the bit of green that sneaked in with the pumpkin LOL. I look forward to visiting your Blogs to see how you get on with the Dare!
