Crafts Galore Encore: Fun Faces Diamond Point Card and ATCoins


(My Gecko Galz post is here)

 Today sees that start of a new challenge at Crafts Galore Encore

The theme is always 'Anything Goes' and you can enter up to 3 different projects The challenge runs all month until mid day (GMT) 30th May.

ElenaZinskiArt is very kindly sponsoring this month's challenge.

Here is my project using one of the fabulous Fun Faces and Doodles

I tried a new-to-me fold for my card. It is a Diamond Point Card and I found the tutorial at Beccy's Place here. I chose double sided patterned paper to match the colours of this adorable pre-coloured digi stamp. I love quirky girls and Elena's girls are very quirky and beautifully coloured (but she also sends line drawings for you to colour yourself)

I also made 3 ATCoins using the same Fun Faces and Doodles collage set:

The faces were printed at half size and fussy cut. The backgrounds were made by smooshing white card into puddles of Distress Oxides. White gesso was applied through a stencil and some black stamping was added to the edges.
The images were popped on foam tape for dimension and sentiments from Elena's One Hundred and Fifty Quotes and Sentiments set were cut into strips, adhered and outlined with a fine liner pen.


Many thanks to Elena at ElenaZinskiArt for supporting the Crafts Galore Encore Challenge.
