Allsorts Challenge #775 - For the Love of Animals/ATG

Hi Crafters,

We hope you can join us for this challenge,  April is National Pet Month which celebrates and raises awareness of responsible pet ownership.

So for our new challenge starting today at Allsorts we would love to see your creations using the theme - 

FOR THE LOVE OF ANIMALS

...but if not then you always have the Anything Goes option.


I have used this lovely image from CraftsUprint showing two magnificent horses. I have embellished with a Tonic Scalloped Frame die and Memory Box Floral Wreath die in silver mirri card. The shadowed sentiment die is from Sentimentally Yours and I managed to find some rather large half pearls in just the right colour in my stash.

Prizes for the next few weeks are from Highlight Crafts and Stamp Addicts.


Please take a look at the challenge blog to see what the rest of the Design Team have created to inspire you and then come and join in with us for a chance at a fabulous prize.

Crafts Galore Encore April Challenge #122 - ATG

 Hi Crafters,

It's April 1st, but no fooling around here today as we have a new challenge starting at Crafts Galore Encore.

We are an ANYTHING GOES challenge so we love seeing your beautiful creations using all sorts of techniques, styles and themes.

We are sponsored this month by Hetty Clare who are offering 2 digi stamps to the lucky winner. The Design Team have used images, kindly donated by Hetty Clare for their projects and here is mine using Rabbit & Hearts.


I have created a small circular card and after colouring this sweet image with my Pencils I masked it and then stenciled the heart background using Distress Oxide inks. I added a few black and white splatters, then wrote out the sentiment and after inking the edges I mounted on to coordinating card stock. I then added three enamel dots and outlined the image in a charcoal pencil to add definition and make it pop from the background.

Come and join in with us for a chance to win 2 digi images from Hetty Clare.

Have a great day!
