DT post for Rick St Dennis



Its time today for a new challenge over at

Rick St Dennis Challenge blog #5

where the theme is

"Anything Goes or Clowning Around (use a clown image)"


I used an image called Zombie Clown

to make a wall hanging so my daughter could use it in her bedroom

I first printed the digi on to card instead of my usual paper and

its the texture of that which gives the clown its unusual look.

It was also that I used watercolour pencils to colour him

The outer part of the mdf frame I used an embellishment mousse

from the Nuvo collection by Tonic Studios.  The mousse

I used is a colour called Peony Pink using a natural sponge to

create the rough application.

Gerda Steiner Progressive Challenge for July 2017


My Make for the Gerda Steiner Progressive Challenge for July 2017

I die cut the card base using a die from a Spellbinders set,
making sure that the die didnt slip so I had a fold. I also die cut two of
the smaller dies from the same set so I had a colour between the two white
cards, this was so the alternative colour would compliment 
the strawberry printed ribbon & bow..  
I had coloured the cute image using my tinned set of watercolour pencils
which I think gives the image a soft edge that I prefer.

DT post for Rick St Dennis Challenge Blog


Hiya peeps

Its time for the next challenge for
Rick St Dennis
on the Sparkle and Glitter Blog, (Link above)

My project for this challenge uses an image from, the front cover of
one of Ricks beautiful colouring books, which are available from Amazon.com
There are loads of Rick's adult colouring books available on Amazon as
well as loads, over 1000 images available on the Zibbet website HERE.

I used a pre cut card blank & added 2 die cut toppers from my own
stash. In fact all of the items used were from my stash. 
(Im trying not to buy anymore craft stuff as I have way too much
stock as it is. I did succumb to the Amazon Prime sale day though).

I hope you join in with the new challenge.
