Christmas Craft Creations - Still Guest Designer


This is my second post for Christmas Craft Creations , where I'm proud to be Guest Designer this month.

For this card, I used a very , very old wood-backed stamp by Inkadinkado. It's a humorous take on Leonardo Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man  drawing. I stamped the image in red and then used a paintbrush and water to pull the ink inside the lines and colour it in, I inked and distressed the edges and mounted it on a panel which was inked and stamped with old writing.

Inkspirational - Dots and Stripes


Our new challenge at Inkspirational  has been chosen by Nonni and she's chosen:

For my DT card I made a background using Reverse Confetti circle stamps, using black and yellow inks. I used a Gerda Steiner image , coloured with markers and added some extra spots to the helmet. I also used a die-cut cloud and a stamped sentiment.

Container Garden

 Here I used some Altenew stamps, coloured with Zig Clean markers and a background of  a Hero Arts Bold Print, which I think gives a hint of sunshine and an echo of the snail's tail. Hope it doesn't make it too un-cas for the challenge I want to enter:

Magic Gnome

 Here's my Christmas gnome who's magically hovering in the woodland. I achieved this effect by stamping and masking the gnome (Reverse Confetti) and then misjudging the position of the Woodware background as I stamped it on top. Maybe, if I keep quiet, no-one will notice???!!

Guest Designer at Christmas Craft Creations

This month, I'm proud to be Guest Designer at Christmas Craft Creations  and it's happy blogaversary to them, as this month marks 3 years of great challenges. 

This month's theme is 'Humour'. 
For my card I used a cute dog stamp by Avery Elle and paper-pieced his scarf in Christmas patterned paper. Then, I printed out everyone's favourite Home Alone quote. I hope you see the humour in this!
