Challenge Me a Christmas Card


Oh dear it's been a while since I posted on my blog! I have been crafting a little but work has taken up most of my time and I have been using my instagram (debpamment) account to post my recent makes. Luckily my good friend Michelle Lupton asked me once again to play a part in her Challenge me a Christmas Card challenge so here I am back on my poor neglected blog.

The theme we chose for today was "Christmas Windows". I set the gorgeous Lily of the Valley carolers into a scene I created using images from Make it Crafty. Sadly Make it Crafty has closed down recently but luckily I have the gorgeous scene making images in my digi library. 

I coloured the image up and cut out the windows. I then popped the whole panel up on 3D tape so I could pop some die cut branches inside the "room" and decorate it to form a Christmas tree. I hope you like it.

I'll be heading over to check out Michelle's take on our theme once the post publishes, you can check it out too - just click THIS LINK.

Here's a little close up of the image.

Aurora Wings New Facebook Challenge

There have been some changes over at Aurora Wings with the challenge blog shutting down. But don't despair - we are now running a fabulous Facebook monthly challenge which you can found on the Aurora Wings Facebook page HERE.

No photo description available.

Our first challenge is "Anything Goes" and the graphic above is a collage of snippets of the DT makes - I hope it whets your appetite to go and check out the full makes! 

For my card I decided to go back to the start of MY Aurora Wings journey and celebrate the new beginning by using the very first Aurora Wings image I ever coloured. This beauty is called Gardenia. The card above is my new make and the one below is the card I created back in February of 2014!

We hope you come along and join us, maybe even re-visit your first image!?!?!

Aurora Wings Challenge #74

It's time to kick off the year with a new challenge from Aurora Wings and it's a favourite of many...

Image may contain: text that says 'Anything Goes'

I've used the gorgeus Dark Princess which is available in both the Digi Store or on Etsy. I hadn't realised at the time she's in the challenge banner too ;)

I know she's a DARK Princess but it's Summer here in Australia and with holidays, sunshine and blue skies I thought I'd bring a little bit of Summer into my colouring too. It just goes to show how fabulously versatile Mitzi's gorgeous images are. 

Don't forget to check out the rest of the AMAZING DT inspiration on our BLOGWe also have a very active Facebook Fan Group with additional contests, challenges and inspiration.  We hope to see you there.

Simply Betty Stamps Progressive Challenge - February 2019

My humblest of apologies - this was meant to have been posted a week ago but then life just got in the way!

For our first progressive challenge of 2019 Betty threw the DT a curve ball - she gave us a Christmassy image but the challenge was to use NO RED AT ALL - not even on her lips!!! This gorgeous image is called Peppermint Betty and I managed to complete the challenge by going monochromatic, in sepia tones. 

If you want to check out the rules and the other inspiration to join in, you can check out the Facebook post HERE.
