APTTC November

 A Perfect Time To Craft  time again.

One of our great sponsors this month is Beat Paper
And the image I chose is from an awesome set 

I chose the main character but will be doing colour codes for all the images from this set.. 

The background on the card took me forever.  I mask off each colour band and used various shades of blue to give it the anime feel.  Grabbed a stencil from my stash and made the hazy smoke like image behind him.  

The sentiment was done using Word document  I even downloaded a free font that matches this theme.  

Thank you for popping in.  Don't forget to play along with our challenge for your chance to win!

Happy crafting!

The Queen

 Today I get to finally share my card I made when the Queen sadly passed away. 

I decided to keep this card for the card class I teach as I thought it was cute.

I used a freebie image of the corgi from Stampanniething, and the Queen image is from 

Kindred Stamps Travel set (limited editions)

I made multiple of these with 2 different sentiments.  That Union Jack die, also from Kindred Stamps,

And when I line these up it reminded me of the streets lined with the flags along the street with the Palace in the background.  
Colours I used with my copic markers were
Crown YR23 Y15 Y11
Hair C3 C1
Dress C5 C3 C1
YR23 Y15 Y11
Sash B37 B14 B06
Skin E00 E21 E95
E37 E35 E31

I did add some wink of stella onto her dress, shoes and crown, but as usual it does not photograph well.  
Happy crafting!

Finally found some time to play along this week.  And, again, I have gone with the Christmas theme. 

I made this card for one of the classes I teach.  I have used a Pink and Main stamp set called
Beachy Christmas. 
Kept the traditional colours for the theme and added the yellow to symbolize the sun.  I did cut the palm tree into 2 pieces so it extended above the circle/polaroid motif.
I did add the little present holding crab for a little fun element.  
Over here in Australia our Christmas's are smack bang in the middle of summer.  We love when we can make summer feeling Xmas cards instead wintery ones as this suits us better.  I am sure I will be making more using this set.  
I think I will make a few more of these to add to my stall.  You can always PM me on Facebook for any purchases (if you don't have time to make them yourself! )
Happy crafting!
