DICC #006 - Nikki Burnette

Today I'd like to share with you a project I've made for the latest challenge over at the Desert Island Crafts Challenge Blog.

Our sponsor this week is the wonderful Nikki Burnette

Here's our challenge itinerary;
Here's my project using #4, 6, 7 & 10 from our itinerary;
I decided to create an Easel Calendar for 2017 using the beautiful 'Kenda' image from Nikki Burnette's Etsy Store.

I coloured my image with Letraset Promarkers in Cool Grey's and Black, with the addition of some Silver Metallic Sakura Pen, and White Gel Pen.  I also added a few fine details with a Pigma Micron Fineliner pen.

I used two 6 x 6 card blanks for my Easel Calendar, one forms the base/stand and the other is cut in half for the top of the calendar (I'll use the leftover piece for another Easel Calendar)

My patterned paper was from the Dovecraft Back to Basics Monochrome Goody Bag.  I added Black card stock and paper doilies from my stash, along with Tim Holtz Tissue Tape, some Metallic Enamel Dots and a 2017 Calender Tab.

I love making these Easel Calendars, they are so quick and simple.  They fold lovely and flat, so are perfect for sending snail mail!

I hope you like my project and feel inspired to join in our challenge over at the Desert Island Crafts Challenge Blog, we'd love to see your creation there.

Thanks for visiting with me today

Left of Center Creative Challenge #156 - Inspired by...with Alicia Bel

Today I'd like to share with you my latest DT creation for the Left of Center Creative Challenge Blog.

We have a really fun theme this week of 'Inspired by...', What does that mean?  It simply means we want you to take inspiration for your project from somewhere, it could be a Movie, Book, Song, Colour Scheme, Patterned Paper, Photo or Sketch.  Just make sure you let us know what inspired your creation.

We are sponsored by the awesome Alicia Bel for this week's challenge


Here's my creation;
For my card I used the beautiful 'Faery of the Snow' image.  She is coloured with Spectrum Noir Illustrator Pens, Marvy Le Plum Alcohol Pens and Spectrum Noir Glitter Sparkle Pens.


For my colour scheme I took inspiration from the pretty patterned papers that I found in my stash, a lovely freebie from a craft magazine last winter I think.

I took inspiration for my card layout from the current Sketch Challenge over at the Little Red Wagon Challenge Blog.  Here's the sketch;
If you need more inspiration, then don't forget to check out the creations from the rest of the Design Team over at the Left of Center Creative Challenge Blog.  I hope you like my card and feel inspired to play along with us.
