That Craft Place Challenge Time..... Inspired by a Film.

I'm back!! 
Today, That Craft Place, is launching another of their fab challenges and for once, I have some inspiration to show you!!
The theme for this challenge is
Inspired by a film
This style of challenge are my favourites.
With it being Valentines day yesterday I chose to go for a good old soppy film.....
Love, Actually
The stamp is an exclusive club kit Marci from La La Land Crafts which I just totally adore.  I have used a combination of dies and my cameo to make the layers.  The flowers, trim. leaves and ceramic angel are from TCP.
Alice in Wonderland
This time I used the Alice in Wonderland digis from La La Land Crafts, (yes loving these at the moment!).  I used them to decorate Lisa's fabulous standing mushroom MDF laser cut.   If you haven't checked out what she is doing you really should.... the options are endless!!  I sprayed this with aerosol primer and then gave it a light even coat of gesso.  I use this method as the aerosol gives a really smooth finish and covers really well, the only problem being it doesn't really like be painted on.  I find a light coat of gesso really helps with this.... it doesn't need to be thick as the whiteness is already achieved, its just a better surface to paint onto.  I cut various different tufts of grass using my cameo.  The images were also printed and cut using the cameo softwear which saves hours of fussy cutting!!!  Then to make this more 3D I used small off cuts from acrylic packaging to make six tabs I then stuck them to the back of the images (top and bottom), to stand them away from the mushrooms.  I then finished it off by covering the front edge with more grass.
Alice in Wonderland is one of my all time favourites and I have been waiting for an idea to use with these mushrooms, so this just had to happen!!
Check out what other films have inspired the DT...... there is quite a selection


I would like to enter the following challenges

How cute is this image??

I have since bought the pad of them!!  The buttons are from That Craft Place and the ribbon and sentiment were just in my stash.
This is being sent to a special lady who is linked to the 'The Last Leg' page on FB.  Its her birthday, she is very poorly and her lovely husband asked for lots of cards to try and cheer her up.  I hope she likes it.

Ditzie Digi Designs Challenge

Its that time again... Ditzie Digi Designs challenge.
And as always our challenge is
and the prizes are
5 images 
2 papers
have done something completely different this time.
a mixed media canvas!
I have used two DDD images for this.
Mr Steam and
steampunk border.
I printed these on tissue paper and then used good old mod podge to stick them to the canvas once all the colours had dried.
The majority of what you see is available in That Craft Place.
I used distress stains, texture paste, a selection of different stencils and masks, bark, MDF shapes and guilding wax.  Pretty much the only thing you cant get from Lisa is the very tiny real watch metal cogs and the old watch face which I got from an ebay store.
I really enjoyed making this and stepping out of the box.

Digi Galore - Kraft challenge

Its challenge time at digi galore and this time we are asking you to use Kraft card in your project.
I must admit to having been a day late with getting this posted..... I totally lost track of days, but I have a card and here it its!!!
We have been lucky enough to be sponsored by Artbymiran and the winner will get to choose 3 gorgeous digital images from the etsy store.
I have chosen Blossom Breeze for my card.
I have coloured her using my beloved copics and teamed her up with 'New Leaf' papers from First Edition.  I have used Kraft card for all the matting and layering and also for some embellishments which I cut on my cameo.  The sentiment tag is from Whimsey Stamps and the flowers/gems are from Wild Orchid.

Looking forward to seeing you projects... pop on over to our blog for full rules and more inspiration from the fabulous DT.
