SCS Challenge - Anything that Flies DT Card

This week over at ....

We are sponsered by the fab SOME ODD GIRL.  They have very generously offered a prize of $9 voucher for digi's of the winner's choice.  We also got the chance to pick a digi of our choice to use in this weeks challenge so here is Magic Mae Digi Download (soo hard to choose between them, so many cuties available).  

We were set the theme of Anything That Flies by the big boss lady WendyWii (it was WendyWoo but ask her about her Wii dance games she has just purchased hahahaha)

I picked out the new Basic Grey Capella Paper Pad as my background paper (I just love the pattern and colours)  I thought that the edges needed something other than just distressing so picked out one of our class MS Punch Around the Page sets and got to work and am really pleased with the results (I hid the join between the two papers with some ribbon from my stash hehe).

I coloured Mae and the Fairy Castle with a combination of  Letraset ProMarkers and Copic Ciao markers to match the DP then I decided to cut them both out.  Inked the edges of the cloud with Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass.  There is a fair bit of silicone behind Mae as I wanted her to be more prominent than the castle. 

It looked like she was enchanting something with her wand so decided to add some bling around it then fairy dust trailing below (but onto what?  hmmmm...) I know ......

I just had to use me flowers again after I received my order from Wild Orchid Crafts lol. I coloured plain white flowers and buds with the Frost Blue Copic that I used on Mae so they matched my colour theme (Then the Fairy Dust magically appeared all over them hehe).

The bottom corner looked a little bare but Wendy has just had some fantabulous mother of pearly buttons and they are just wicked coloured with either ProMarkers or Copic Ciao and I played around till until I got this fab spotty effect and I was just about done

The other girls have done a fab job this week. Pop on over to have a peek and
leave us a message to say hello and I hope to see you all again next week.

SCS Challenge - Manga - DT Card

Another week, another ....

This weeks challenge is Manga, so get all your Secret Crafter Manga stamps, Sugar Nellies etc and get stamping (or printing for those digi's).

And on that note you have to take a look at the Brand New Exclusive Secret Crafter Xmas Digi images (arrived Hot Off the Press last night)

Available for immediate download (and at £2.99 they're a steal), why don't you use them for this weeks challenge (keep 'em peeled as there are more to come very, very soon hehehe)

I haven't got a fave as yet cause I love em both and can't wait to get them inked up (but I gotta wait til Monday before I can have a play grrrrr)

We had some new DCWV Cafe Mediterranean 8x8 and 6x4 paper pads in and they are truly lush.  I just luurrve the colours and they all match each other perfectly and managed to rescue a pad from the shop to use this week.  Italian Girl, is from Secret Crafter Shop used as a Digi Download but they are also available as Clear Stamps.

I coloured the image with a combination of  Letraset ProMarkers and Copic Ciao markers.  Inked the edges with some Distress Inks in Peeled Paint which is a lovely lime green colour.  I used the middle of the new Marianne Designs Double Frame and a circle nestie behind it.  The Happy Birthday is from the Personal Impressions Greetings clear set inked with Black Versafine.  I just had to use me flowers again and another order for Wild Orchid Crafts has also been placed lol.

Also Kate our Guest DT has agreed to stay on in a permanent role - we are so pleased she accepted (she also managed to get a card done with the new digi's for this weeks challenge, buttering up the boss already eh! hahahaha).

SCS Challenge - Oriental - DT Card

 This weeks Challenge over at
 is an Oriental Theme set by Yours Truly 
(dats me u know hehe)

I've been itching to use the Dovecraft Eastern Promise  pads for ages but just never got round to it so this was the perfect opportunity.  Trying to decide on which design to use was the hardest as I picked out about 6 before I decided on the 3 to use.  The image, Samurai Boy, is from Secret Crafter Shop used as a Digi Download but they are also available as Clear Stamps.

I coloured the image with a combination of  Letraset ProMarkers & Copic Ciao markers.  I was looking for a punch to use on the card but couldn't decide so eventually went with tearing (really hard to tear in a straight line lol).  I inked the edges with PaperSoft Colour in Lime Green and Rose which turned out to be a very good colour match with the rest of the card.  I wanted to get away from using flowers on everything so was then stuck on what to do next lol. 

I went hunting in Wendy's stash and came across some lovely new stamps Darkroom Door Rubber stamps - Full Bloom Vol 1 (in a metal storange box no less, posh!!)  and the sentiment was just perfect.  Wacked that on the side after a bit of inking and ta daaaaa I was finished.

I hope u like me little creation and don't forget to pop on over to the rest of the teams blogs to find out how they created their cards

See u all next week

SCS Challenge - Distressing - DT Card

This weeks challenge is a doozy and is set by Suzie
(I is a poet hahaha)

I very nearly just put a pikky of me on a card cause I is distressed.  Just back off me hols and am not happy being back at work lol (need to win the lottery haha)

Anyhows, back to me card.   Patience Pixie is from Whimsie Doodles and is such a cutie.  Coloured her with Promarkers and Copics then decoupaged her.  I decided not to colour her wings and went with the Glitter instead (and much more blingy in my humble opinion lol)

Used the new Pink Petticoat Autumn Blossoms papers for the background and the Woodware Punch flowers.  We have some awesome new Buttons - Style 3  over at Secret Crafter.  I have used the white ones and coloured them with Promarkers to match the colours I have used on Pixie.  Mounted everything up onto Mirri Card and added a border used the MS Border Punch and distressed with Tim Holtz edge distresser and some Distress Inks

We have a fabulous Guest DT for the month of October - KATE (DOWNRIGHTCRAFTY) has agreed to join us, so pop on over to the gals blogs to see what delectable creations they have for you this week.

Oh well, back to the holiday washing and repacking of the cases for another year
