Smiling Monster

For the second month in a row, I am not last minute completing the progressive challenge at Limited Runs!  Go Me!
 
 
I would like to enter my card into these challenges:

I have used a paper from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  I also used some cardstock to die-cut the squares behind the image.  The image is this month's progressive challenge image from Limited Runs.  I coloured with copic markers.

I have used a paper from a loose paper pack by Dovecraft.  The image is from Ching-Chou Kuik and is coloured with copic markers.  I also used some vintage lace, some pearls, a butterfly and sentiment from an embellishment by Rosie's Studio.  The edges of the die-cut image are inked with Distress Oxide - Vintage Photo.

No Fun in the Sun here as it is the middle of winter!  I'm looking forward to later in the year when we get the warmer weather again!

A Bit Time To Craft - Anything Goes
http://abitmoretimetocraft.blogspot.co.nz/2017/06/a-bit-more-time-to-craft-challenge-46.html

I have used a paper from Lozzy for the background and the paper piecing.  The image is from QKR Stampede.  I paper pieced the swimsuit and glasses and coloured the remainder of the image with copic markers.  I like the effect of the paper piecing of this particular paper on the swimsuit and glasses.  The sentiment is from Eureka Stamps with a little colour added with copic markers.  Matting is green pearlescent paper.  I also added some multi-coloured gems.

Have A Purr-fect Birthday!

I had a bit of a play with some different techniques and this is the result:

Little Miss Muffet - Anything Goes
http://littlemissmuffetchallenges.blogspot.co.nz/2017/06/challenge-165-anything-goes.html

I created the background using Distress Oxide in 4 different colours.  The image and sentiment are from Bugaboo Stamps and are coloured with copic markers.  I die-cut some kitty cats using a die set from either Memory Box or Elizabeth Crafts (I'm not sure which it was from and can't find the packet!).  I cut them from Jac Paper and then coloured them using Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Flakes. 

NOEL

I have had the time this month to create using each of the horizontal lines on the BINGO board.  This one follows the top line of ribbon + button + pearl.
