Ike's World Challenge 103


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

The current Challenge (#103) is Anything Goes with an Optional Twist -
Victorian Christmas!

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...


Xmas Fairy



I have used this for the Challenge - but your image is free choice -

The theme is Victorian Christmas. I started by googling this and came up with images like this - pretty weird? Maybe Ike could come up with some spooky images like this??

Image result for victorian christmas card

Anyway my card was inspired more by Victorian Valentine - pretty colours, doileys...


I have used a white card base layered with three die cut squares. I then added the image die cut with a scalloped circke and coloured with a variety of markers
 and a Zig Wink of Stella.

The sentiment is a stamp from Happy Little Stampers stamped directly onto the image card.



Look forward to seeing your creations in Challenge #103...

Here is my inspiration for Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies Challenge

Do pop over and see my teamies' fabulous makes!!


This month my ATCs use a background that I made on the recent Happy Little Stampers Retreat in Stockport. I used a techniques that Kylie demonstrated then - Brushos with starch!


I added each rectangle of the background to a base of red card. I then added different things to each one -
this one is overstamped with a Kaisercraft stamp (Christmas Feeling) in black Versafine with an added wooden embellishment.


This has a gold embossed stag's head (through a stencil) with a bow and bell.


This one has a Noolibird stamp overstamped in black Versafine with a pearl.



Another Noolibird stamp, again overstamped in black Versafine, with a pearl.





Hope I will see your make in the Challenge!
