Altered Art(ish) Fun

Hi all, I thought I'd share a little bit of fun & useful altered art for you!
This month at The Crafting Cafe, the theme is
Firstly, may I apologise to this month's lovely sponsor Teri Sherman of 

Grab a Banner
 This particular item does not showcase any of her fabby images.
 Also, I must confess I didn't make this item but I just had to share it with you!

This is a catscraper, made by my beloved husband for our fur babies!
The design was originally inspired by the Chrysler Building! lol
I also have to confess, he didn't design it but he did create it from 
around 10 recycled/upcycled cardboard boxes.
If you'd like to make one of these little beauties for your furry friends
you'll find instuctions and templates here!
I hope you like this project & I hope you can join our 
"Altered Art" challenge this month!
Don't foget we are looking for some new DT members to join our fun team.
If you're interested, just add DT after your name when you link up your
Altered Art project!
Thanks for popping by!

Daisy and Watson

Happy Thursday all! It's almost the weekend! 
Time to share another Just Inklined card with you!

This is Daisy and Watson. Such a fun image!
When I saw her I immediately thought of my great niece Emily!
It's her Birthday today!
 Happy Birthday Emily!
I'm sure many of the pet owners among you are chuckling at this one!
I was inspired by the colours at Chromatic Craze

August 2013 Color Challenge

I used a 5"x5" card base, topped with paper from the Ad Lib Collection
by Bo Bunny. I added a couple of little fish tails in a co-ordinating paper
under the image! The sentiment was made on my PC using
 a free font called Emily Regular. I have to say, there's 
not much regular about our Emily! lol

I coloured the image with some promarkers & flexmarkers then cut out with
a nestie, matting onto a larger shape. I added some glossy accents to Daisy's
 glasses, Watsons nose & a couple of other litttle bits!
As you can see I wrapped a little twine around the bottom & added 
some daisies from my stash.  I've got no idea where the daisies are from
 as I've had them forever!

A little side view to finish off!
Thanks for popping in! I hope you like my litle card!

Make It Funny

Good morning all & happy "hump" day!
Halfway through the week & it's all downhill from here! Yay!
Todays project is my DT card for
where the theme for the new challenge is

I made a twisted easel card using the image 
from our sponsor this time 

I coloured Gus with a mix of flex & pro-markers, distressed the edges,
then did a bit of matting & layering. The papers are from Papermania.
I also added some glossy accents to the image.

I added the sentiment (which comes with the image) as the stop
for the easel section by mounting on foam pads.
I also added a sandpaper bunker which I hand cut and.
a couple of buttons threaded with twine

A side view just to let you see the fold if you are not familiar

Christmas Market

Good Morning all!
It's not often that I post on a Tuesday but I just couldn't resist sharing this
card with you! It's a sneak peak of what's coming next from
La Pashe

This is Christmas Market, just one of many yummy-liscious 
decoupage designs you will find on 

The sentiment is part of the sheet. I've added a couple of self adhesive gems

Here's a closer look at the decoupage panel!
There's far more than just decoupage on the CD!
