The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Bingo.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

What an adorable pair these make!My Best Friend¬†by Crafty Sentiments¬†has¬†been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers and I even went for a furry effect on the pup.Found these fabby papers and kraft card on offer at Every Crafts A Pound¬†– love ’em ūüôā¬†I used my favourite jumbo corner rounder punch at the top for a little extra interest and dragged out an edger punch I’ve not used in a while.Added a die circle and clouds,with a stamped sentiment.Created some texture by wrapping some paper twine around the border panel.

This is for my son’s 11th birthday.He loves our dog and she loves him¬†‚ô• Altho’ she isn’t shaggy like the dog here her facial expression and lollopy tongue are very much the same!She also fusses over him the most as he’s the youngest and even tho’ she’s petrified of water she transforms into ‘The Guardian of the Bathtub’ by¬†laying down beside the bath the whole time he’s in it!

At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is a Colour Inspiration (bit of a clue).We have the fabulous The East Wind as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

Meet the beautiful Aurora ‘Vine’¬†by¬†The East Wind.She’s been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers and,if you look carefully,there are touches of Glamour Dust on the roses in her hair,eye shadow,gloves and shoes.I created¬†a shaped card to accommodate this beauty made up ,mostly,of pastel card with a lovely spotty paper.The lilac card has been embossed.Some ribbon and a baker’s twine threaded flower button have been added along with some rolled roses to compliment the ones in her hair.I’ve sat these on die cut flowers with an¬†arrangement of die cut leaves.Once these were in place I fussy cut the lovely gal including the landlocked areas cut with a craft knife.Just don’t scrutinise my knife skills – lack of them…lol ūüėÄ I popped her up on some foam pads for extra dimension.
