Under the Sea with PunkyouGirl

Good morning! Another post from me today, we have a new challenge at PunkyouGirl for September and the theme is Under the Sea. Our fabulous sponsor for this is Delicious Doodles and we'd love to see what you can create, dark themed remember!
I have used the Scottish Selkie image from Delicious Doodles, coloured with promarkers and mounted on black. The DP is from Graphic 45 An Eerie Tale paper pad, as is the 'magical' motif down the left of the card. The dies are cut using my fabby new Cameo and I've finished with some purple self adhesive pearls and black lace.
Thanks for looking!

Challenge #9 at A Step in the Dark - Anything Goes/Steampunk

I am loving being on the team at A Step in the Dark! Fabulous teamies, fabulous sponsors and fabulous images and a chance to get my dark side on more often. Today is no exception and this fortnight we have 3 sponsors for you... so I have three projects to show you!!
First up is the first time I have worked with the Oddball Art Co. and hopefully not the last time - the images are just the perfect mix of cute and creepy. I have used the Fairy Bat Girl Image No 69 and coloured her in promarkers. I have used a background paper from an old set by Hot Off the Press and finished the card with some diecuts and a sentiment sticker from Pebbles inc.
I will enter this card in the following challenges - 
Oddball Art Co Challenge - Non-Traditional Hair Colours
Little Red Wagon - Girl Power 
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - Wonderful Wednesday
My next creation uses Jarrod by Rick St Dennis - this is a Steampunk image and that's the optional twist at this new challenge. Again my trusty Promarkers have been used with some Vintage Photo DI to age the background of the image. I have used Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells papers with dies from Tim Holtz and Joy Crafts.
I will enter this card in the following challenges:
7Kids College Fund - Anything Goes with Dies
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

Finally, The Stamping Chef are also sponsoring us this week and I have used a new image called Bungle Bunny. My paper is Authentique (I think!) and I've added Black Soot DI to the image and some die cuts to finish.

I will enter this Stamping Chef card at the following challenges:
The Stamping Chef - #44 Anything Goes
Inky Impressions - #174 Anything Goes
Scrapper's Delights - #30 Anything Goes

Dog Days of Summer at Crafting By Designs

Morning folks, here's hoping its still sunny wherever you are and you're enjoying the end of the summer. The kids are back to school here and I'm enjoying a few hours with the youngest every morning before he starts nursery in October. Today we have a new challenge at Crafting by Designs - 'Dog Days of Summer' - and the sponsor is one of my favourites, Smeared Ink.
I have coloured the Calaveras Sugar Skull 3 with Promarkers and kept it very colourful instead of my usual Smeared Ink dark halloweeny themed cards! The papers and flowers are from Craftwork Cards and the sentiment is from Ginger's House.
Thanks for looking!

Love to Create in Plaid!

Today I have my last project for Love to Create Challenge Blog. I will be sorry to leave this team, the ladies are fabulous and so much talent involved. I wish the team the very best for the future and I will be by now and then to enter the challenges myself now!! 

Ok, I am Scottish, we love our Tartan and this week that's what we want to see at Love to Create! Get your plaid papers out and create something for our challenge. I have used the 'Ambrose Dunderton' image from Dr Digi's House of Stamps and coloured him with promarkers for this card. I gave him tartan slippers and then couldn't find my matching tartan paper! Anyway, I have used papers from the Fancy Pants Designs 'Little Sport' paper pad and layered them up on a scalloped card blank. I have kept this plain but will add a sentiment once I have a recipient.
Thanks for looking!

Time for a new challenge at Left of Center and our amazing sponsor for this week is The Stamping Chef. The theme this time is Stitching - Real or Faux - and of course you have the LOC Option too!

The sentiment on the card was a recent freebie at Create With TLC. I have then added faux stitching with a fine black pen.
