Challenge 56 - Sponsored by Limited Runs Digis - Colouring

Thank you for joining us for our last challenge of 2011! This week we are lucky enough to be sponsored by Limited Runs Digis a fab company with some really cute digi stamps and accessories, please pop over to their website to check them out! The theme this week is Colouring - whether its promarkers, pencils, paints or inks, show us your latest colouring creation - we can't wait to see, the deadline for this challenge has been extended over Christmas so you have plenty of time to get your entries in! The winner will receive their choice of 4 Limited Runs digis.

Here is the inspiration from me and the Design Team

I wanted a little break from making Christmassy things so  I used the Limited Runs 'Morning Glory' digi coloured with Promarkers, with some of my Tinseltown Papers (these papers are for life, not just for Christmas!)

I used Sarah's Tinseltown houses & Santa stop here sign, along with the 'Santa's Stuck' image from Limited Runs digi range to make a wall hanging, I coloured them all in with Promarkers & glued the chimney pot images (complete with Santa stuck in the chimney) onto the  houses. I used red & bakers twine to hang them together
I added white Stickles to the roof & chimney pot to make the snow all sparkly.
I used a mix of papers from Tinseltown and Oz and the 'House 1' from Limited Runs digi I coloured with Flexmarkers to make a CAS new home card.
I've used 'Fairy Catcher' from Limited Runs but given her a snowflake to catch, the papers are some of my favourites from Sarah's Tinseltown CD
I made a digi Scrapbook page using lots of elements from the Tinseltown CD ROM and also the fab digi image Snow House and of course a picture of my mad puppy!
I chose 'Brill' by Limited Runs as he's so cute and the words from the elements section of the Tinseltown CD just went perfectly with him. I chose to make a page in my Christmas journal to show them off.
I had so much fun with this challenge. I decided to go for a non Christmas digi from Limited Runs and I chose the lovely little 'Dragons Nest' I wanted to do something different so I decided to do a picture frame.

I have used 'Catching a Snowflake' from Limited Runs and used card and papers from my stash.
I have used 'Snowman #2' from Limited Runs and combined it with some gorgeous backing paper from Sarah's Tinseltown CD, punched holly leaves and some die cut snowflakes.
I've used a cute image called 'Little Tree' from Limited Runs and teamed it with some fabulous papers and embelishments from Sarah's Tinseltown CD to make another last minute Christmas card.
I used 'Catching a Snowflake' from Limited Runs coloured with Promarkers, and papers from the Tinseltown CD

Challenge 55 - *Sponsored by Letraset* - Christmas

This week we are lucky to be sponsored by Letraset! and this weeks theme is Christmas, and the prize for 1st place will be this gorgeous set of Spring Promarkers, perfect for all those lovely New Year cards!
Here is all the gorgeous inspiration from me and my Design Team...

I used the Snowglobe shaped card base from the Tinseltown CD, added some distress ink to the edges and used some of the Digis which I coloured with Promarkers and layered with 3D foam, adding some stickles for sparkle!

I made a shaker Christmas decoration made using Sarah's cute little reindeer digi he's coloured with promarkers and derwent pencils
I've used Sarah's Tinseltown CD for the Poinsettia Backing Paper and Ponsettia Wreath, which I have decoupaged and coloured with Promarkers.

I used Sarah's Christmas tree, patterned paper & With Love sentiment from the Tinseltown CD to make this cute little tag. The tag itself is made from corrugated card that was destined for the bin, I saved it & recycled it :D I coloured the tree with Promarkers, added blue Stickles to the blue baubles & Glossy Accents to the other coloured baubles to make them shiny.
I used images from the Tinseltown cd and used gesso to paint white "snow" on the rooves, adding some glitter for a bit of sparkle.  I used Promarkers to colour all the elements.
I used your papers, and Igloo Digi and Bingo card from the Tinseltown CD. I coloured with Flexmarkers, and covered with Glamour dust glitter.
I made a wee card using the yummy Tinseltown papers, layered onto white. Added a wee image from my stash coloured from promarkers, some sizzix swirls, candi, ribbon, lil sentiment and lots of glitter to finish
I loved this little Robin of Sarah's so coloured him in with Promarkers and gave him a little bit of a glittered tummy too.
I used the christmas cheer house stamp which was then coloured using my Letraset Promarkers.Stitching was done using my letraset fine black liner.
I've gone digital! I wanted some easy to produce Christmas cards, so on the computer I've layered up some gorgeous backing papers and an embellishment all from 'Tinseltown' and then printed onto smooth white card. To this I've added a 'Digi Stamp Boutique' image coloured with ProMarkers to match the background, a dab of Stickles and a drop of Glossy Accents. Very little cutting and sticking means quick cards!
We look forward to seeing your projects - you have until midnight on 11th December to enter - just click below to submit your link!
