Crafts Galore Encore October 2017

Today is the first of October. The nights are drawing in, the temperatures are getting chilly and the trees are a riot of warm colours. Perfect crafting weather, I just wish I had the time.  
Today I have a card to show you that I made
for the October challenge on the
Thank you to everyone who joined in with September's challenge. The winners are on the challenge blog's 'winner's page'. This is a month long challenge and you can enter up to three times. A full list of rules are on the challenge blog.
Our theme every month is the popular
"Anything Goes"

Our sponsor this month is:

Rick St. Dennis
who is offering two digi images for the winner.

I have made an 8"x 8" card.

I started by colouring the edges of the card blank with Vintage Photo DI. I then layered a piece of card coloured with 13 @rts Ayeeda Mists in Pastel Blue, Chalk Turquoise Light and Pastel Yellow.

We were generously offered a digital image from our sponsor and I chose A Clockwork Dragon. Anyone who knows me knows that I love dragons and Steampunk so this fabulous image was an obvious choice for me. I used my Polychromos to colour the dragon then I fussy cut him out.

I used an X-cut set of dies to cut the cogs then sprayed them with 13@rts Ayeeda Mist in Pastel Yellow  and added dabs of Vintage Photo DI. I fixed them randomly to the backing before mounting the dragon using foam pads.

The sentiment was printed onto card coloured with 13@rts Ayeeda Mist in Pastel Yellow and cut out. Vintage Photo DI was added to the edges.

Now please visit the  Crafts Galore Encore challenge blog to see the wonderful projects and cards created by the rest of the talented team and to enter your "Anything Goes" creations.
Today I shall be at The Range in Llanelli doing a demonstration for Docrafts. I hope you find some time to craft too. Enjoy your Sunday everyone.
