Challenge myself-BLUE!-caardvarks challenge

22:03 1 Comments
Wow!! Today is a very meaningfull day as i really use my time to explor a new place which is FLEA MARKET!!OMG!! It is very amazing place!! but i must be carefull with my bag ^_^.they said lots of pickpocket!anyway,before i reach there i have something on my mind. I WANT SCRABBLE!! just the tiles though! of course for card making or scrapping. As the place quite big...i had missed out some of the "rows" of stalls!! after few minutes of walks, i feeling give up!! but also not as i dont believe i cant get what i want ^_^. My heart said it is here in this place! yes!! after few steps..i found it!!! the stall owner hide it in between two big basket!! i quickly tapped my husband to stop walking...wuahahahha..big smile on my face!! i quickly checked the conditions of the inside the boxes. Everything looks good!So i estimated it will cost me SGD 8. but only cost me SGD 4! with the 8 missing alphabets tiles (that is okay as i wont play scrabble but use it for craft ^_^). So here is the look of the box!!

Another beautiful treasure also found.(before the scrabble!).

Once i saw it i quickly stop and checked it!! it is still in good just dirty!!!
I can wait to clean it up and alter it!!! oh my....this is only cost me SGD 6!!!Made from solid wood,can be hang!! suitable for photos my husband,me and garlic(my dog)!!! ^_^. excited to shared what i found, almost forget about the challenge card :
Here is my another take for caardvarks challenge

I dont fancy blue! but i will try to overcome it ^_^.So this is the result. I stamped the stampavie stamp on to the prima marketing canvas paper and coloured it with derwent inktense ( works well).
Cloud and grass i use chalks from pebble inc.
The paper that i use from Glitz.To lesser the boring look, i stamped the same image use versafine to create background. Finish with stamping, i applied distress inks-tumbled glass.
Tied strings and place rhinestone from fiskars and buttons.

Here is the close up of the main image ^_^
The sentimets are all from hero arts stamp.I stamped it alphabet by alphabet to get the right sentence ^_^ (BOY,IT'S,YOUR,DAY) except HELLO.

All about pink!!! cardvaaks challenge--baby card

13:42 2 Comments
OH NO!! i am still in the mood of pink colour!! hope you all wont get bored ^_^. it getting into my nerve especially i just bough a bag full of pink colour buttons and a roll of pink colour fabric!! OMG!! Those fabric and buttons just simply give me idea to make a baby card ^_^. This card i also use for CAARDvarks challenge--monochromatic colour. I did enter this challenge before and use brown colour--not really my colour! ^_^. Pink actually also not my colour but my creations seem looks better with this colour ^_^. Hope can win the first place ^_^. Become designer for Core'dinations for 3 months ^_^.

OK!! Here is my take :

SIGH..the colour of the card suppose to be lighter than this..but somehow my camera capture it become like this..T_T. I was trying to cover most of the white colour by distress it with either spun sugar or victoria velvet distress inks. The pattern paper is from Jilibean.

Flower: twist and glue fabric on to the circle paper, place kaiser pearl that i coloured with copic marker. I placed 2 trinket from maya road on the flower. As for the butterfly, i punched use martha stewart puncher--monarch butterfly and i applied pink stickles on the butterfly body.
Heart Shape : i coloured 2 maya road heart shaped chipboard with making memories paints- strawberry once it dry i applied martha stewart glitter-cotton candy on top of it.  All the name of the products sound yummy isn't? ^_^
Baby : i punch baby picture that i found from Giant archival pattern paper. Apllied distress ink-spun sugar. For the backing, i punched flower shape use fiskar puncher,distress it with spun sugar very lightly.

Plait : cut 1.5 x 25cm cm of fabric then slowly plait and glue it each section.

Butterfly background: Before i stick the rectangle paper on the cardstock, i punch it with martha stewart puncher to create negative shape of the butterfly. For the butterfly : i punched pink cardstock and distress it with spun sugar and victorian velvet. Apllied stickles on the butterfly body.

Alphas are from thickles. I distress it again with distress inks to reduce the white colour. as for baby shoes i cut it from Giant Archival pattern paper.

Brown brown Brown---penny black challenge ^_^-Caardvarks challenge

22:18 6 Comments
Hello everybody....
Today's card created for the Penny Black and Caardvarks challenge. The theme is monochromatic brown. Fiuh..i found it that this theme is a challenge for me as i dont usually use only "1 colour" ^_^..
Well this is my take...hopefully it doesnt look dull  ^_^.
For the frame, i stamped few times of the prima marketing stamp (the Prima marketing stamps  has several design on it and all of it is very beautiful. It has an intricate details on each of the square. The best thing is this stamp is very cheap!! ). After i stamped, i colour with adirondack-ginger and espresso. To create different tone i use water to blend. For the penny black stamp-teddy--i stamped the image on the same cardstock colour that i use for the based. I coloured with the adirondack ginger and espresso. Let it dry, To soften the look,i coloured the image again with butterscotch inks without mixing with water.

Below is the supplies that i use for stamping and colouring.

Hope you like it.
