LDRS Creative – First Post with Art-Z Penny Peacock

Good morning everybody!  How are we all?


OK...so this happened….

Still pinching myself to be honest! So proud and honoured to be asked to join such a super talented group of ladies!  Anyway before I gush anymore I will get on with the job in hand!

So my first DT project for the LDRS CREATIVE INSPIRATION BLOG features this stunning rubber stamp and die-set from Art-Z called PENNY PEACOCK.  This is a fabulous Zentangle style image that comes with sentiments and accessories and matching dies.


Such a unique and dramatic image deserved a bit of dramatic treatment I thought so I stamped on black card in Versamark then embossed with gold powder.  I then coloured using a very old set of metallic pencils I found; they worked surprisingly well considering their age. Bit like me really!!!! :)


I used the dies that come with the set to cut everything out then embossed a backing card with the fabulous PICNIC QUILT  embossing folder; an amazing value set of two wonderful designs! I then framed our lovely Penny using the GILDED OVAL DIE SET.

Ingredients:
Rubber Stamp & Die Set: PENNY PEACOCK BY ART-Z
Colouring: Metallic Pencils
Embossing Folder: PICNIC QUILT
Other: Wow Gold Embossing Powder – Ribbon - Gems

So check out the LDRS Creative blog HERE where you can see all the totally awesome makes from the totally awesome DT and go to the store HERE to get all your gorgeous goodies.  We also have a YouTube channel full of education and inspiration and join our Facebook Group where we would love to see all YOUR LDRS creations!

Hello! Hope all is well with you and yours!

It’s time for a new challenge over on THE COLOUR CRAZY CHALLENGE BLOG and our weekly theme is always ‘Anything Goes’! There is a wonderful prize on offer for our lucky winner so check out THE BLOG  for details.

For this week’s challenge we are sponsored by the amazing

The image I have used this week is a sweet little boy called CANDY FLOSS CREW QUENTIN but I have managed to ‘unsweetened’ him somewhat by making him into a zombie/Day of the Dead character. Well I rarely get the opportunity to make anything for Halloween and I absolutely love it so jumped at the chance to ‘re-imagine’ this little lad as standing in a graveyard looking a little peaky! The skull on his sweater was the inspiration to be honest.


So lots and lots of dies and a spooky sky created with Distress Oxides later we hopefully have a suitable location for a zombie to play on his skateboard.  There’s even a pair of sinister googly eyes to cheer him on!


Ingredients:
Colouring: Faber Castell Polychromos
Colouring Paper: ULTIMATE GRAPHIC
Sentiment: Digital Delights
Background: Watercolour Card with Fossilized Amber, Black Soot, Lucky Clover, Candid Apple and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxides
Dies: Elizabeth Crafts ‘Halloween Scene Set’ – Tattered Lace ‘Spiders Web Set’ – Die-sire ‘Icicles’ – Tonic ‘Nesting Circles’
Others: Googly Eyes

So creep over to THE BLOG and join in with our fab colouring challenge, and as it is Anything Goes you have no excuse!!!  And if you love colouring why not share your makes with us in our FB GROUP! We would love to see you.

Thanks so much for looking and for your kind comments and have a wonderful weekend!
