For this month I colored the gorgeous poppies.

I colored the image with watercolors and the background with brusho's.
The sentiment is chipboard from Make it Crafty.
My optional twist sparkle shine is on the chipboard, I make it shiny with clear embossingpowder.

Another project for the Unity challenge

Tonight I made another project for the Unity challenge on their FB group.
I found an old shadowbox yesterday when I was searching for something else and an idea popped into my head!!

I made a background with Cadence paint, blue Zirkon and Dark Turquoise.
Added some stars with a Cadence stencil with Cadence sunflower paint.
Heat embossed the Star stamp and the sentiment.
Added some Dora wax with a little water and a brush in the stars.

Then I stamped Winter blessings on the glass with Stazon.
Colored a bit on the backside with glass paint and a white posca marker.

A string of lights and finished!!

YAY, the Make it Crafty coloring challenges are back!!

Yes, it's true, the Make it Crafty coloring challenges are back!!

Theme this month is: "glow"
Colour a scene or character with an element that glows.

I used for this card :
Digital stamp Cold by light
Copics to color it
Chipboard: Mini stars, Snowflakes, the words Merry and Christmas ( if you like the chipboard, Zoe has it 20% off till Sunday, 12th November!!)
I embossed them with embossingpowder, yes, even those little tiny stars!!!!!
I put them on a piece of tape, so they would stay in place, added versamark with a versamark pen, sprinkled some embossingpowder on it, and then the heattool.
Because they were on tape , the heattool didn't blow those tiny stars away.
