It’s a lurve theme over at The Crafting Cafe this month, and the DT got to work with digistamps from the fabulous Bugaboo Stamps. Ava and Deacon’s Love Word was perfect inspiration for this 12×12″ canvas board layout. I coloured the image with ProMarkers and the board with acrylic paints and added my new favourite tarmac technique. For a bit more detail, see my post at The Crafting Cafe.
Since my ProMarkers are currently on loan to my young tutee, I’ve used my Fashion Design set of Tria Markers to colour in the digistamp. This has the benefit of a preselected palette of colours that work well together. I’ve added extra colour-on-colour to add the tartan stripes to the hat and the shading. I felt Rupert really needed scarf and goggles, but only the scarf made it 🙂
It’s my turn to post again over at the Crafting Cafe, and this month the theme is ‘altered art’ with the sponsor once again the fabulous Delicious Doodles. I’ve printed their Pansy & Butterfly digistamp directly onto old dictionary pages – for more details, go to my post on the design team blog.
Oh, don’t for a moment think that I’ve kept something quiet for the last nine months! It’s ‘a baby is born’ as the theme for this month over at The Crafting Cafe and this is my design team contribution to the blog. Pop over for more instructions and information on the digistamp I used from Bugaboo Stamps.
Though everything was a month late at the allotment this year, I did actually have blossom on the fruit trees, unlike last year, and some fruit has set. Unfortunately, the cherry tree is still having problems and I have just one cherry ripening. Not so on this card for The Crafting Cafe, featuring LEJ Designs ‘Blossom’ digistamp:
For the ‘Lady Luck’ theme this month over at ‘The Crafting Cafe’ I chose the ‘Moving Car’ digi stamp from the wonderfulBugaboo Stamps, our sponsors. I think it’s such a versatile image, whether for moving house, emigrating, marriage… perfect for wishing someone good luck. For more details, see my challenge blog post.
