Mervi has chosen the fun theme of Create your Own Background for her turn hostessing at Craft Room challenge.

I've used stamps, sponging and colouring to create a background on my card, love the Spring/ Summer feel to my card.

Spring Growth

Spring truly has arrived here in New Zealand, so cool timing for Zoe's theme at Craft Room Challenge: Seasonal Colours.

I've done some more Art Journalling, though with more actual painting than stamping, there's also some stencilling on here.

Hard to see, but there's a whole heap of writing on the pages too.

Here are the colour palettes to work from :

I've used some of Shar's stamps on my pages :-)

Have a great week, and I'll see you next time.

Forest Friends at Craft Room Challenge

Over at Craft Room Challenge, Amber has chosen the theme of Forest Friends....... I decided to have some fun ;-)

I took an ordinary Unicorn..... and turned it into glitter steampunk unicorn! I had such fun creating him. And as you can see he loves frolicking in his own forest :-)

Its a bit hard to see all his Steampunk clogs and cool stuff cause of the glitter... but its there..

Our lovely sponsor is Tando Creative.

Please check our rules, as sadly many entries last time were disqualified :-(

I hope you find the time to join us and that you have as much fun as I did :-)

Art Journalling for Craft Room

We had some gorgeous cat entries for our last challenge, at Craft Room  this time it's Annie's term to Host, here's what she has to say :

"we all have some old craft items in our stash and of course we have some new ones too............ so I would like you to make something which incorporates them both............not too hard............but you are required to list what you have used within your blog post, not just the link to our challenge to be in with a chance to win a prize. ( Please check out the New Pesky Rules to ensure that your entry/post qualifies to be in with a chance of winning) "

I have returned to my old faithful art journal, for a double spread, lots of old favs on here, but I've also used a new Indigo blu stamp set.

Cat Time at CRC

Christi's hosting her first theme at Craft Room Challenge and she's chosen Cats!! Now I don't have any cat stamps..... in fact I don't have much cat stuff at all. So once again I've gone digital ... with this cute cat girl!

Then I had a thought - why not turn it hybrid... so he's the digital card printed out and turned into a real card :-) Me thinks there could be a lot of milage in this... so watch this space!

Our generous sponsor for this challenge is once again The Stamp Man.

Have a great fortnight.
