Addicted to Stamps and More CAS #359

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

1. White card blank.
2. I was going to stamp these Visible Image stamps from Christmas Chaos directly onto the card blank but having seen them against the white I decided it did need a little extra colour for this Christmas card.

3. I added a layer of pale blue 'water colour' paper to the card blank and stamped directly on this.
4. I added two turquoise gems.

Hope you will enter the Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge!

Happy Crafting!

Sew Sad Crying Skull

For this inspirational make
I have used the image Sew Sad Crying Skull  coloured with a Copic marker, and made into an ATC. I have also used a skull stencil to form my October calendar page:

The ATC part is basically the Oddball image cut out with a Tonic ATC collection die, a touch of colour added with the marker and faux stitching around the edge with a fineliner.

I added this to the calendar page on top of my skull element.

The skull element was made by putting black texture paste through a Visible Image stencil. I didn't like the totally black image so I removed some of the paste and used the Copic Marker to colour these areas red.

My creation is inspired by the current Oddball September challenge Spooky Spirits First Day

Happy Crafting!

Ike's World Challenges 124 I is for Icy

Here is my make for Ike's World Challenges!

The current Challenge (#124) I is for ICY 

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...

Victorian Street

You might like to use this for the Challenge - but your image is free choice!

I decided to use Snowman


I printed the image and coloured it with Copic Markers and then cut it out. I layered a white card blank with dark red card then the snow scene image from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles. My printer may have delivered it in a slightly different colourway...

I added the image and the sentiment from Imagine That Digi Stamps on another scrap of dark red.

This is the current progressive freebie image on Limited Runs Stamps Facebook page
 which I printed on some patterned paper from my stash. I coloured each part with markers and cut them out.
