Creata Challenge - Colour Block

Here's my entry into the above challenge and here's the link -  http://creatachallenge.blogspot.co.uk/
I tried something new after seeing a demo on TV this morning and placed a variety of washi tape strips across a piece of card, then used a Creata die to cut the centre shape, which produced quite a good effect I think !  The little embellishments down the side are some of the waste pieces from the die.



 
Items Used
 
Cream base cardstock
Creata backing paper
Bazzill card
Creata (Joy) centre die
Washi Tape
Button

Two more Craftwork Cards characters

As you can tell, I'm really addicted to these Craftwork Cards characters and papers, so please meet Coleen and Amy !  They are coloured in using promarkers, and the framework on the card is the negative piece from Creata shaped Easel cards.

Meet Hedgie the hedgehog !

Here's Hedgie, a regular visitor to our garden.  He has a companion but he is the braver of the two, and loves to crunch away on the cat kibbles.  The cats just watch him, bemused !

Craftwork Cards

Here's a card I made for a birthday buddy.  It's mainly using Craftwork Cards papers, and the character is also from CC, I think her name is Cheryl, and it's the Dolly Mixtures range. I coloured her in with promarkers, and added some gems and glamour dust.  The heart frame though is not CC, it's the left over part from one of Creata's heart easel cards, they make perfect frames as you can see, so are definitely worth hanging on to.....waste not, want not !

Pleased to say I got the Top Pick No. 1 award for this, and a new blog badge as well !
