Special Brew

There are lots of spooky goings on over at Dr Digi - and here is one that I left brewing earlier! Special Brew and for good measure Crossbones. I don't think these need to carry a health warning as they look pretty grim to begin with!

Hope you are ready for things that go BUMP in the night! I've added the images after colouring them with Promarkers to a sheet of acetate with a black card base behind. I've wrapped a wide peice of ribbon around the join at the top and then added some black funky fibres as well.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Artistic Inspirations: Spooky
Dream Valley Challenges: Halloween
Through the Purple Haze: Halloween

Crimbo Crackers Challenge 68 - Round

It's time for a new Crimbo Crackers challenge and the theme this fortnight is Round. Don't forget that your entry must be Christmas or Festive related.

I've used a fab circle sentiment from Jellypark (which I don't think is available any more - sorry!) and enlarged it to make it the actual card. I've added the scalloped edge by punching hearts and gluing them underneath.

A bit of highlighting with Promarkers, inking and glitter glue, some half pearls and the card is complete!

Good luck with the challenge!

Monster Fun

Halloween is approaching and what better way to celebrate than with the good Dr Digi Halloween Sentiments which have eerily turned into cupcake toppers! Now I would show you how they are supposed to look however this house has no cupcakes and I didn't think they would look right stabbed through some Jaffa Cakes.......

Buy the Sentiment Sheet along with Special Brew and Witchy Wilma and save a £1 - enough to buy some treats!

All coloured with Promarkers and I found some titchy wobbly eyes in my stash along with the dripping goo.

What Solves Everything?

A cuppa, that's what!

And even better when the cuppa digi from Dr Digi is only 50p! You can't buy a real cuppa tea for that price! Scrumpled sentiment panel is from a bag of sugar. Recycling at it's sweetest.

Mix of faux and real stitching - using a We R Memory Keeper roller thing (combination of a 99p reduced to clear head from Hobbycraft and a bargain on Amazon for the holder - £6 and free shipping) for the pattern. Actual stitching using a black fineliner pen. Genuine tea stains from a previous cuppa, digi coloured with Promarkers, embroidery thread from my stash and charm from ebay. Another bargain - £2 for 100 of the little things!

Crimbo Crackers Challenge 67 - Anything Goes

Crimbo Crackers is back and the first challenge is nice and easy - Anything Goes. The challenge runs for 2 weeks and this one ends on 22 October - for more details, pop over to Crimbo Crackers

I've used an old Dude Time Doodles image and used Aquamarkers to colour it. Papers are from my stash and I've had them for some while so can't remember their origin! I've also used a die to cut the image and also for the layering. And ribbon is from my stash. I've added faux stitching around the edge with a black fineliner pen.

Good luck with the challenge and I hope you are able to join in!

Once A Winner, Always A Winner!

First Place Phil knows he is the envy of all the Sunday wannabe racing drivers - and man, he is livin' the dream! And he can't help but smirk!

First Place Phil from Dr Digi is available in colour for those who are in a rush to reach the top of the podium!

The wordart backing paper is a freebie download from an old edition of Papercraft Inspirations and I've layered it onto red and black card from my stash. Phil has been added via a little spring thing so he wobbles!
