Make it Tall and Thin with Left of Center Creative Challenge Blog

It's time for a new challenge over at the Left of Center Creative Challenge blog, so time to embrace our dark side and create something wickedly creep and offbeat.

It's time dig out your tall thin cards and create something for us this week. 

Our sponsor is
 and you could win some amazing images from them if you play along. 

Here's my project;
I couldn't resist the gorgeous 'Heart Monster' from Bugaboo Stamps, so that's the image I used for my project.  He's coloured with Letraset Tria and Promarkers with the addition of some Uni Posca White Pen for highlights.


I have some gorgeous felt heart stickers in my stash, that went perfectly with this cute monster.  So I decided to create a card with hanging hearts.

I simply cut some strips of acetate and sandwiched one end of the strip between two felt hearts of the same size and colour.  I then took my Tall card blank and cut a piece of white card stock slightly small than the front of the card.  I glued the free end of the acetate strips to the back of my card panel and then added it to my card front.  Then I added my image, along with a felt heart.

To get the acetate strips to hang how I wanted, I curled them with a pair of scissors, then put a weight on then overnight.  This meant my acetate had a nice curl, but the hearts didn't stand too far away from my card blank.

I had so much fun with this card, It was really simple to make and looks very impressive in real life.  Using the self adhesive felt hearts made it even easier.  I hope i've inspired you to play along with our challenge.  Don't forget to visit the Left of Center Creative Challenge Blog to get even more inspiration from our awesome Design Team.

Flashback Friday with Sassy Studio Designs

Hi, This weeks FlashBack Friday post went live today. Which means you still have a few hours to grab your copy of our gorgeous freebie over in the Sassy Studio Designs Facebook Group.

Here's my project featuring the gorgeous 'Sassy in the City Miranda'

Sassy in the City Miranda is coloured with Letraset Tria and Promarkers with the addition of a little Uni Posca White pen for highlights.

My background paper comes from 'The Rainbow Pack' of Digital Papers by Pixel Paper Prints.  I layered the patterned paper onto a 5 x 7 white card blank, added a leftover piece of pink paper and then my image.  I used a sentiment sticker from Simple Stories for my sentiment, and a purple felt heart to embellish my card.  To finish my card off I added a doodle frame around each layer with a Pigma Micron Black Fineliner.

I love using a single patterned paper like this for my card background. You can make a really fun card nice and quickly with a patterned paper as your background, colour your image which coloured used in the paper and your image instantly co ordinates with the paper. This is a great way to work if you find it hard choosing colours to use on your image.

That's all from me for now, so head over to the Sassy Studio Designs Facebook Group to grab your copy of 'Sassy in the City Miranda' and don't forget to show us what you make with her, we love to see your creations in the facebook group, so please upload them and join in the Sassy Fun.

Our theme this week is 'Pastels' - We want to see Pastel colours on your project

Here's my card;
For this weeks project I used the beautiful 'Aquarius' image from Sassy Studio Designs.  She's coloured with Letraset Tria and Promarkers with a little Uni Posca White Pen for highlights.

Pastels are definitely not my go to colours, so this project was a little out of my comfort zone, but I had lots of fun working on this project. It's nice to create something which is just simply pretty.

Left of Center Challenge #125 - Torn Edges with Rick St. Dennis

It's time for a new challenge over at the Left of Center Challenge blog, so time to embrace our dark side and create something wickedly creep and offbeat.

This week's challenge is sponsored by the incredible Rick St. Dennis


Our Challenge them is 'Torn Edges'

Here's my project;

For my project I used the wonderful Countesse von Finnbair image by Rick St. Dennis.  I had great fun with this project, I printed my image out twice, coloured one with a red colour palette and the other with a green colour palette.  I then tore each image into 3 pieces.  I then layered together two green pieces with the centre red piece. Hopefully this gives the impression of the centre section of the face having been skinned!  Here's a close up

Look at those wonderfully creepy eyes!

I wanted to keep the image as the main focal point of my card, so I kept the rest very simple.  I took a sheet of brick patterned paper, marked on the back the size of my image, cut a very rough rectangle from the centre of the paper, then tore around this area to create a rough aperture in the brick paper.  I then simply layerd my image and the patterned paper onto an 8 x 8inch card blank.

I resisted the temptation to add any further embellishment, and I love the finished card.  Hope you do too.  Want to see more inspiration for our challenge, then please head over to the Left of Center Challenge Blog to see the awesome creations from the rest of our Design Team.

That's all from me for now, Thank you so much for visiting with me

More Mixed Media Challenge - Yellow

It's time for a new challenge over at More Mixed Media Challenge Blog, as always it's a colour challenge, so this month you can create whatever you like as long as there is Yellow somewhere on your creation.

I've created a 5 x 7 inch Mixed Media Canvas for this months challenge;
The main focus of my canvas is the beautiful 'Reflection' by Saturated Canary.  I coloured this beautiful fairy with Letraset Tria and Promarkers before fussy cutting her out.

To create my background I used Yellow and Purple Acrylic Paint to cover the whole canvas board. Once dry I added some Buttercream and Lilac Gelatos.  I then used a stencil to add some pattern to my background.  I used Gold Pearlidoodles to stencil my sentiment along with another layer of pattern to my background.


Once my background had dried completely I added a layer of Liquitex Gloss Super Heavy Gel to the whole canvas, this works wonderfully as a sealant for my layered background, as well as an adhesive for my image.  I added the gel to the back of my image, before adding it to the canvas and covering with a thin layer of the gel.  Before the gel dried I added lashing of Decoart Glitter Dust and some Frantage Shaved Ice Flakes.


I had great fun creating this piece, and hope you love her as much as I do.  If you want to own this little beauty you'll find her in my Etsy Store.  I hope to add more products to my store over the coming months.

Thank you for visiting with me today and don't forget to hop over to the More Mixed Media Challenge Blog to see the stunning creations from the rest of the Design Team and to link up your projects.
