Two very different cards to show you today - one for our next challenge at Basic Grey and one for this week's theme at CES Challenges.
Firstly our challenge at CES, as set by our fabbie Carrie. And it's film night!! You can choose your fave film or maybe something that you've seen recently.
As usual, our prize is a fabaroonie £10 voucher to spend in Emma's online store!
Just about my favourite film is Last of the Mohicans with Daniel Day Lewis -he is stunning in it and the music and the love story ..wow!! However, as you can see this isn't what my card is all about! I needed to make a 21st card for my nephew, who is working very hard at building up his film company. I was looking for a retro film director image in free clip art but came across this image instead of The Invisible Man. I've coloured with my trusty PMs and used Bo Bunny Time Piece Papers and Webster's Hollywood pages, all from Emma's Online Store. I've then used some Tim Holtz film strip ribbon and added the little birthday letters underneath, anchoring the strip with some photo clips.
The little clapperboard was cut from the Hollywood Websters pages.
The gorgeous girlies on the CES DT have chosen some great films and used some great images, papers and embellies to illustrate them, so go and take a peek!!
And now for something completely different!!
This is my card for our next challenge at Basic Grey Challenges and this week we have a great colour scheme - Hot Pink, Lime Green and Brown/Kraft. I love bright colours!!! I've coloured up my new Gorjuss girl image purchased at the Craft Barn last weekend and then used Basic Grey Sultry Papers. Amongst many wonderful demos , we watched the amazing Chris Dark ( who also happens to be a previous DT member for Basic Grey Challenges!) work her magic with Copics and used a few of her tips when colouring Gorjuss Girl's hair - quite pleased with it!!!
Didn't need to do much else, I thought the papers and colours speak for themselves!! I've layered up using papers from the Basic Grey Kraft Basics pad and also stamped my Cat's Life Press sentiment onto the Kraft.
The flowers are made using another new purchase from the Craft Barn - a Marianne die which cuts out the shape for these rolled flowers. (I did have a birthday voucher to spend there!!) Another birthday purchase was the WRMK stitching tool and floss, which I got from Quixotic Paperie.
I've also used a little BG chipboard butterfly which is not a new purchase but has been lurking in my stash for a fair while!
We have our regular sponsor with us, Simon Says Stamps, who have such a fab range of goodies and you could win a little spending voucher to spend there:
Again, the amazingly talented girls at Basic Grey challenges have made some beautiful creations - I nearly didn't bother when I saw what they had made! You won't be disappointed if you go and have look!! I hope you can join us - just don't forget to use a Basic Grey product and let us know what you've used just in case it doesn't quite jump of the page!!
Off for a spot of shopping now, enjoy your day whatever you're up to.
