Thank you for stopping by, these are my projects for this weeks Not Just Cards "anything goes" challenge. Lots of great sponsor this week with a lot of great prizes for the winners. I am a snowbird and travelling California and Arizona with our 25 foot trailer so sometimes crafting can be a challenge especially getting a good picture of your project. Please note that the greener behind my pics are orange and lemon trees and they are loaded with fruit.
House Piggy Bank
My first project I created was this fun piggy bank with Whimsical House digital stamp by Bugaboo one of our sponsors this week. My inspiration for the box was a pottery piggy bank I saw at the craft show a few weeks ago.
To make the piggy bank I used a empty coffee filter box I had in my recycle box and wrapped the box with the image. The image did not quite fit the box so I printed the image a couple of times and cut out some on the houses on their own to complete the penny bank look I was wanting to achieve. I then took the extra plant pots for the roof of one of the houses and added them around the bottom of the project. The houses were coloured with Copic Markers, a gelli pen and Panpastels. I created the top of the box in coordinating papers and die cut an opening to for the coins to be put in.
Bicycle Rider Planter
My second project was made with an image from another one of our great sponsors, A Random Fan, called Monet's Bike. I think she is just so cute. I found this cute little fence planter at a garage sale, at least that is what I think it is and decided that it would be a great way of displaying the image. I coloured the image with my Copic Markers and attached her to the planter, I then added a ring of paper inside the fence area to hide the yogurt container I used to hold the greener. The greener came of a tree in the yard which I added some paper punched flowers to to give the project a little more interest and colour.
