Fancy a Colour Challenge

Good evening i am here tonight to share my DT card for CRAFT and this week we have a fab colour challenge for you
Our sponsors for this weeks challenge are
So now onto my card I have used a image from Pickled Potpourri called Deer Ole Dad
I would say that this image could be for any occassion Fathers Day, Birthday and even Christmas. I love the play on words with the sentiment. I think he might be getting this for father's day
I kept the layout very simple. Coloured my image with promarkers and cut out matted onto 2 scalloped circled with the green one having been embossed with a fiskers plate. The backing card is a cream pearlised card and i inked the embossing plate with some distressed inks and embossed. It has coloured the embossing and is simular to letter pressing. I kind of like how it has come out. Added some bread and 3 buttons with twine and added the sentiment from the stamps.
Well now it is over to you. We look forward to see what you make.
Thanks for poping by dont forget to checkout the rest of my teamies creations

Thanks Teacher

Good day from a rather yuck day in Manchester. Come on folks it is JUNE what happened to summer. My boiler is bust and I need some heat. They say from Thursday we might get some. I do hope so. OK well it is getting near to end of school year here in UK and I know that it is in other places. So this weeks theme at CRAFTY SENTIMENTS set by Celine is just the perfect one.
 so lets get cracking making things for our childrens teachers. Could be a thank you card a birthday card or just a well done card. It could even be a present. What ever we would love for you to share with us. So dont be shy you could win this fab prize 

So let me share with you what I made. I have made a card and the badge is what the children receive if they attend for the full term without any absences.

The stamp is actually called Back to School and you can find it in the store.
I have coloured with promarkers and used colours of his uniform and he has a RED bag. The DP is from a download at The Paper Shelter. Computer generated sentiments and paper clips from my stash.
Well hope this has inspired you to come and join in we are waiting to see what lovely things our teachers will be receiving.
Thanks for stopping by and please call again very soon.
