Challenge #30

 Hello everyone, Zowie here today, posting on behalf of Helen, Kim, Cindy, Jayne, Michelle, Stacey and myself. Thank you so much for all of your support and for entering your beautiful creations each challenge; we really do appreciate it! 







It's time for a new ATG challenge here at Arty Divas! Our wonderful sponsor is SheepSki Designs  and the winner will receive a fabulous prize! I would like to thank SheepSki Designs for being our sponsor.  





Living in Leeds, Yorkshire in the UK, working full time as a Management Accountant, currently working on 2 design teams and an obsessive crafter and creator of cards. I have no actual style as yet but do love the unusual and quirky. I may be known for producing cards in soft pastel colours. I love anything arty. I've always drawn stuff, for as long as I can remember. In my younger days I sold a few watercolour paintings. I recently found mixed media which is a joy and love creating canvases with flowers. I had a battle with digital drawing for about a year and finally found some software I could gel with. 



In January 2016 a challenge team I worked on was short of a designer's images to create with so to the crafting world, to the lovely ladies who have supported me on my journey. I've a Facebook group SheepSki Designs where I hold challenges, some for fun to win digis as well as my monthly card challenge. I've a SheepSki Designs challenge blog as well. Things are growing slowly (thankfully) so I still manage to spend at least a little time with my hubby. Welcome to my world Andrea xx




And the prize on offer for the winner is - 3 images of their choice 







I would also like to thank our wonderful Design Team, they have created some beautiful designs. Please click on their names to see how they made them.

The Design Team have used these wonderful products from SheepSki Designs:






















































Now it's over to you, we look forward to seeing your creations! This challenge runs from today until November 2nd.

Guest Designer Merja

 Hello everyone, today our wonderful Guest Designer is Merja.





 Hello everyone, I am MeSi (also known as Merja) and I live in North Karelia, Finland. I've always loved crafting, but I've been more active since the start of this year. At the moment I mostly do cards and colour with alcohol markers - it helps me relax.






I wanted to do a Halloween card because I love that theme. Firstly I stamped everything I wanted to include on the card using Versafine ink. Then I taped circle paper over the place where I wanted the moon to be and coloured the rest of the card with Distress Inks and blending tools. When I was happy with the result I took circle paper away and coloured the moon and some shadows over the sky. I love how this card turned out, playing with inks is fun :)











Thank you for having me as a Guest Designer, I hope my card inspires you!

Thank you so much to Merja for sharing her beautiful creation. Please do check out Merja's blog

Guest Designer Fikreta

 Hello everyone, today our wonderful Guest Designer is Fikreta.








My name is Fikreta but friends call me Fiki.
I'm from Bosnia and Herzegovina, but I live in Kalinovac,Croatia.
I'm married to a wonderful man and I'm a mom to one beautiful 17 year old girl whose name is Paola.
I have 4 cats, turtle, bunny, two fish, two bird and a dog.
I LOVE cats ! I love animals.
Love anything crafty.
If you ask me why I start to craft I think because I don't go insane LOL !
I'm at home, I do not work, wife and mom so I must do something else.
I love papers, stamps, (digi too) ink and everything else to make my creations.
I love to make anything crafty,My inspiration is everywhere.
I'm a big dreamer.
And I like to take photos, especially my cat's.
I'd like to thank Zowie, and the rest of the crew at Arty Divas, for inviting me to be a guest designer!




  







I made a bear card.
I use a Honey Bear image from Digi Doodle Studios.
Bear I colored with watercolors.
 I glued honeycomb paper on the white card base.
I added washi tape and glue bear on top of it.
I cut the banner and stamped sentiment and glued it in the top right corner of my card.
And that's my card! Hope you like it!




Thank you so much to Fikreta for sharing her beautiful creation. Please do check out Fikreta's blog
