Hello my friends. It is time for another TTCRD anything goes challenge. This week we are talking about a topic that I am passionate about... it is coffee :). We are being sponsored by Drawn by Krista. It is the first time I have used anything by this artist and she does have some quirky stuff in her shop and so well worth a visit.

I chose to work with the saying called Coffee lovers saying.

 It was an opportunity to get out my bigz die by Tim Holtz and make a coffee cup. I used white card inked with distress inks to add depth and corrugated card by DCWV. I printed the saying on white card in brown. The brown mats are from a card called roasted coffee which I thought was quite apt.
All in all, it is a simple card but I thought it showcased the sentiment better.
So now it is over to you. See you on the other side, Theresa xx

Honey bee

 Hello crafty friends. It's been a while since my last post. I seem to be losing my ways at the moment.
It is time for another TTCRD anything goes challenge. Our sponsor this week is the talented Jeremiah Ketner.
The prize of 3 colouring pages plus 20 percent off any purchase in store.

I chose to work with an image called Honey bee which you can find here.

This is the second image from this range that I have worked with and once again I must say that I really enjoyed colouring it in. I again went with my trusted Faber Castell polychromos pencils.

I also used clear sparkle pen on the bee's wings and liquid pearls on the bubbles. I tried to keep it simple so the image stands out. The coloured card is from the Centura pearl range.

So now it is over to you. see you on the other side, Theresa xx.

Summer days

Hello fellow crafters. Welcome to my first post of 2018. It is time for the TTCRD weekly anything goes challenge.

This week our sponsor is Small and round by Jeremiah Ketner. For a prize, he will award 3 colouring pages and a one time 20% discount on his site.
I chose to work with the image called Summer days.

I coloured her in using my Faber Castell polychromos pencils. I then added stickles glue for some added sparkle.
The music dies are by tonic and the sentiment is a generic die I got some time ago with a magazine.
The base card is a metallic Centura pearl by Crafter's Companion. I chose the music background as my son is using this card for a friend of his who is into music. I also felt that they complimented the floatiness of the image. So I hope you visit the shop and join us over at TTCRD.
See you on the other side, Hugs Theresa xx.
