Heavy Metal!

Tuesday 5 February 2013

Good morning!

I hope you're keeping warm - I had a wee bit of a surprise last night when I peeked out through the blinds and everything was white!  Again!  Even though we were expecting a little bit of snow, I didn't actually see it snowing and we had quite a covering!  Hopefully it won't hang around for long.

Time for another new challenge at the Creative Card Crew and we have a new sponsor!

Pizzazz Aplenty are offering one lucky person a surprise package and as someone who was previously lucky enough to have won from them I can vouch that their surprise packages are fab!

So in order to be in with a chance to win it, all you have to do is make something to the following theme...

Chocolate - colour or candy!

I chose to go the colour route and here's my card:

My image is Sprocket by Saturated Canary - it's ages since I coloured one of these beauties and I really enjoyed it!  I used the following copics: Skin: E21,13,00,0000,R20. And the rest: W9,7,5,E59,57,55,53,51,49,44,43,40,41,39,37,35,33,31,30,29,23,07,04 and a little bit of black prisma pancil.

It's my first attempt at anything steampunk so I just threw everything metal I had at it and it weighs a ton!  Lot's of Tim Holtz bits and some fabricky sparkly paper and I randomly frantaged areas of card.  The pearl is from Pizzazz Aplenty.  And a few other bits and pieces from my stash.

The inside matches the front as usual.

So pop over to the Creative Card Crew and check out what the rest of the DT did - it'll make you drool!  Then make something to join in and make us drool!

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:
