Hello Peeps, the first Sunday the month so it's time for new challenges and we have quite a selection for you this month. At Craft a Scene we have the lovely theme of ' Majestic Mountains', at Stampalot it's 'Punch Away' and that Penny Black and More it's all about 'Animal Magic'.
As you might guess the one at the top of my post is my Craft the Scene DT piece where I have combined stamps from Stampscapes, Chocolate Baroque and Art Impressions. I stamped all with black archival ink using the third generation ink for the mountains to achieve softer look and did all the colouring with Pan Pastels. I thought the castle felt a little bit Halloween/Frankenstein'ish, so I filled in the wings of the birds to look like bats.
My second card above is my Stampalot DT piece, I paper pieced the dress and water coloured the smaller elements. A punched border and some ribbons, die cut flowers and swirl and DP from stash and I'm afraid I have absolutely no idea of the make, then finally a few pearls to embellish.
My third and final piece is for Penny Black and More is very simple and straightforward, paper piecing again, a punched border, lace and ribbon. I fretted about this one a bit as I felt the theme title indicated cute but needless to say I have very little that fits that bill so the owl it was. And I did Google it and birds and feathered creatures are all considered animals apparently.
My craft room is just about finished now so I'm hoping the weather will be kind today and I can get some photos done to share, watch this space !
As always my thanks for popping by and I hope you will join in with our challenges this month.
