Dragons Lair Inspiration

Today I am showing a Quick Page Layout!

Dragons Lair has quite a few QP's available - all you have to do is use an editing software and a photo and you have a layout.

I have used Green Grass Quick Page 2 and Serif Craft Artist 2. 
This only has a space for one photo, so I added a second frame from my Dragons Lair files and a few flowers.
The pictures are of my Mum, my Dad and me...


I will link this to Digitally Sweet Challenges 160


Have you looked at the current Challenge Blog Challenge?



Happy Crafting!

Addicted to Stamps and More - CAS Challenge


Here's my CAS card...for the Challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More



I started with one of those card blanks from The Works again - already die cut with Happy Birthday.
(This is my last one - I went in again and couldn't find any more!!)

I used one of my favourite stamps on this card
 - Two Step Tulips from Stampin Up -
 a very old stamp set!
I used green, orange, yellow and black ink pads.



Hope you will enter the Challenge!

Ike's Challenge #84 - Day 80 of A Year of ATCs?


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

The current Challenge (#84) is  Anything Goes with a Twist - Over the Rainbow...
and this is my midway post...

If you pop over to Ike's World Challenges you will find there is a super freebie to pick up:

Dorothy




You could use this for the Challenge - but your image is free choice...

I have used some of Ike's freebies for my trio of ATCs which are inspired by

 St Patrick's Day:


a freebie from Ike's Art Fan Page on facebook

a freebie from Ike's SUYP Challenge



I started with red card matted with three different green backgrounds - two were given me by Teresa Morgan in an ATC swap, one is one of my 'color burst backgrounds'.
 I used Zig real brush pens to add colour to the images.
I also added some scraps of celtic and rainbow ribbon.





These ATCs are my make for my Year of ATCs? - Day 80

Look forward to seeing your creations in Challenge #84...



Happy Crafting!

A Year of ATC's? Day 79

This is my 79th make for A year of ATCs?


This is the second of a pair of ATCs using Bugaboo Angels - the first was Day 78.


I started with a rectangle of green card. I used Serif Craft Artist 2 to add the Bugaboo image
Raggedy Angel - Stars (which was last week's Friday Freebie)

to a paper from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles
An Angelic Nature


I printed this out and then
 added colour to the image with an assortment of markers.

I trimmed it and added it to the green card.

A Year of ATCs? Day 77

This is my 77th make for A year of ATCs?


I started with a 2.5 by 3.5 inches rectangle of green card.
I made another background using Ken Oliver Color Burst water colours 
- sprinkling some powders on watercolour paper and then spritzing with water -
and added this to the green card.


I used the Dragons Lair image March Windscoloured with Zig real brush pens, cut out with a stitched die and then added to the green card.
Finally I added a dragonfly embellishment with red ribbon.


This Color Burst background has been my background of choice this month,
 so I decided to use it on my March Mixed Media calendar, matted on green card. 

I added the March dates with this ATC and the Dragons Lair one I made earlier:

A Year of ATCs? - Day 76 - St Patrick's Day

This is my 76th make for A year of ATCs?

And it's St Patrick's Day...so hoping your day will be touched with a little Irish Luck!!



I started with a 2.5 by 3.5 inches rectangle of red card.
I added a lovely background sent to me by Teresa Morgan as an extra in a recent swap.
The images and sentiment are from
Vera Lane Irish Luck
I added some colour with Zig real colour brushes (which bled a bit I am afraid!)
 and used glossy accents on the eyes.
I punched the sentiment with a square inch punch and added green ink round the edges.


Finally I added orange sparkly stickers.

A Year of ATCs? Day 75

This is my 75th make for A year of ATCs?


I started with a 2.5 by 3.5 inches rectangle of dark red card.
I made another background using Ken Oliver Color Burst water colours - sprinkling some powders on watercolour paper and then spritzing with water.



On this I stamped several stamps - the rest of the stamp set which was a magazine freebie and gave me these two bunnies.
(Days 72 and 73)


I added colour with Zig real brush pens and 3 bunny brads to the top corner and then attached all this to the red card.
