Ike's world Challenges #70

Today I would like to show you my make for Ike's World Challenges!

The current Challenge (#70) is "Travel/Holidays"...and this is my midway post...

For today's make I have used many of the elements from Ike's The Beach Gnomes Set to make a Pocket Letter - basically 9 ATCs!

I used various papers from ImagineThat Digistamps Beach Combing Papers
as background to the images and coloured them with Promarkers.

I added an assortment of embellishments:

I then placed them in a pocket folder! 

Happy Crafting!

LOC Challenge #144

Challenge #142 starts today at LOC  "You've got a friend in me"

Our sponsor is Sheep Ski Designs

and I have used Flump n Tic on an ATC.

First I coloured the image with Promarkers and cut it out.

The base is a scrap of green card matted with some green embossed cobweb paper. 
I added a spider embellishment.

My ATC was inspired by the Children's song I used to act out with Preschoolers:
This is the version I used to sing...starting off on my own being an elephant and bringing in one child at a time until there were five...each child joins on and we move round in a circle...

One elephant went out to play
Upon a spider’s web one day.
He had such tremendous fun,
He called for another elephant to come…

Two elephants went out to play
Upon a spider’s web one day. 
They had such tremendous fun,
They called for another elephant to come…

Three elephants…

Four elephants…

Five elephants went out to play
Upon a spider’s web one day.
They had such tremendous fun
Until all of a sudden...the web was GONE!

At this point all 'elephants' fall to the floor!

I will link this to Wicked Wednesday 223

 Looking forward to seeing your makes in the LOC challenge!

Happy Crafting!

I decided to use Beach Combing Papers


You may have seen that I used Beach Floaty Girl on this ATC the other day.

Anyway today's card is a white card base topped with a square of paper from which I had die cut a Sizzix Palm tree.

I then added the image coloured with Promarkers.

Hope to see your make in the challenge!!

New Challenge At SLSLines

Once again I am showing you a journal page...

and I am using two images from SLSLines

I coloured them with Promarkers, cut them out and added them to my journal:

I started with color burst powders on my pages with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink around the edges.I then added green mesh before the images.

I then added a variety of embellsiments.
