Left Of Centre Challenge #121

Welcome back fellow bloggers, crafters and friends. 
I hope you have all been keeping warm and toasty in this awfully cold weather...


Today sees the start of a new weekly challenge over on the Left Of Centre Creative Challenges Blog. 



Challenge #121 is 'Faux or Real Stitching' and is sponsored by two amazing sponsors - 

Star Stampz




All Dressed Up




Here is what I have made - 




I used a gorgeous image from Star Stampz and coloured her with my Rangers Distress Markers and a thin koy water brush. 
The papers are both from 'Limited Edition' paper pads and mounted on pink card.
I used my silhouette to cut the topper, leaves, flowers and swirls.
A thin pink ink pen was used to add the faux stitching around the topper and the top paper layer. 
This was finished off with dark teal pearls which match the colour of the teapot in the image. 


I would like to enter my make into the following challenges -

Hello & Left Of Centre Challenge 117

Well Hello Fellow Crafters, Bloggers and Friends. 
WOW it has been a long time. I will not dwell on why I have had the long break, those that know me will know that my mother passed away in October last year. 

I am now back to crafting......Slowly......and was kindly allowed back onto the Left Of Centre Creative Challenges Blog. 




Today see's the start of a brand new Challenge #117 - Love, which is being sponsored by Ching Chou Kuik, and will run for a week. 




I have used the gorgeous image called 'Lil Bookworm Fairy'


and coloured her with Faber-Castel Colouring Pencils. 
The shapes and sentiment are all done on my Silhouette Cameo.
I have used a Wink of Stella glitter pen to add some sparkle around the fairy. 

Here is what I made.......




I hope you will pop over and join us for this challenge. As long as the entry fits either the challenge theme 'Love', or 'Left of Centre' then you are welcome to enter anything you like.

MWLW Challenge No2.......Anythin Goes

Welcome back beautiful bloggers, crafters, friends and everyone else.........
Today see's the launch of our 2nd 'Anything Goes Challenge' over on the.....

 Paola's gorgeous company produce such wonderful digital images that are easy to colour and make into lovely projects for people of all ages etc....
Here is the links you will need -
Our challenges will start on the 1st of the month, and an inspirational post midway throughout the month...
I used this gorgeous image 'BeachWagon' with no scenery
 
Here is what I made with it:



 
I really wanted to make something different and this image gave me the opportunity too. I kept looking at the image and I couldn't see it on a card in my head. I could however, see it on a wooden plaque with keys!!!!!
 
Here is my wooden key rack made with a MWLW image. The pins are copper to keep the theme of the rustic feel. I have coloured the image with polychromos Faber Castell pencils and then painted over with PVA glue to stick it to the plaque.
The plaque has a slight backing to it done with distress inks.
I have added twine and some keys to finish it off.
 
I hope you like this, and it shows you that you don't have to use these images just on cards.
 
 
I would like to enter this into the following challenges -
