613 Avenue Create #169-Anything Goes-No Twist

Hello Crafty Friends!  This week at 613 Avenue Create we have no twist - we're just plain Anything Goes. Our sponsors are DI's Digi Stamps and Bugaboo Stamps. I used an image from Bugaboo called Frame It - Red Wine.  Here's my card:

I colored the image with my Spectrum Noir markers - DR5, DR3, CR6, and a bit of PP5.  I used JG6 for the leaves. I lightly chalked the background. The wine glass and grapes have a coating of Clear Wink of Stella. I added a die cut from Impression Obsessions, snipping a bit from a second cut and adding it to the side of the image. Sequins from my stash provided the final touch. The cardstock is Recollections 110 lb. 

I'm entering a few challenges: Spectrum Noir March Challenge - Show Us Your Sparkle; Crafting with Friends #17 - Anything Goes; and Crafty Girls Creations #17 - Anything Goes.

Have a great day!

Easter Bunnies

What a shock - this is my second post today.  Yesterday I made an Easter card for my grandniece. She's 15, and so special to me.  Here's her card:

I used my Spectrum Noirs to color a retired CTMH image that I've had for years.  The bunny tails have a coating of clear Wink of Stella. After buying the stamp set, I ended up being totally intimidated by the prospect of coloring the image so it remained unused until now. I cut it out using a Scalloped Nestabilities, turned it into a tag using baker's twine, and attached it to the card base. My background paper is from my stash, as are all the papers. The ribbon is Martha Stewart and the pearls Recollections.

I'm entering these challenges:  AAA Cards #60 - Easter; Tag You're It Challenge #42 (inspired by colors and Easter theme); and Crafting with Friends Challenge #16 - Anything Goes.

I have more Easter cards to make. I hope to get them done by the weekend. Have a great day!

613 Avenue Create #167-Daylight Savings Time-Use Clock or Other Time Piece

I love Daylight Savings Time because it means Spring is coming. Our Anything Goes Challenge this week at 613 Avenue Create has the option for you to use a clock or some other time piece. I used a digi guitar image from our sponsor Scrappers Delights. This card will go to our grandson at some point:

 As usual, everything except that cool guitar is from my stash, and everything is year's old. just have so many unused supplies in my craft room - I bet you do, too - LOL!! I I used my Spectrum Noir markers and gave the guitar a bit of sparkle with clear Wink of Stella

I'm entering these challenges:  Quirky Crafts Challenge - March - Masculine with ribbon or twine; Scrappers Delights #53 - Anything Goes; and Crafting with Friends #16 - Anything Goes.
