Hi Quirky Peoples it's me again, Lyn, just to remind you my challenge of...

 1st Prize: 3 images from Robyn's Fetish

3rd Prize: 1 image from Robyn's Fetish

Here's a few more of our teams makes, first Cindy our new 2 month Guest Designer!
'Lambchop' is the image I chose to use this time.   This image also spoke to paper piecing, but also embossing!  I used Stampin' Up's new Decorative Dots embossing folder to emboss parts of the lamb and give her dimension.  I used my markers to colour the flowers a few times and also pop dotted them.  I have more detailed photos and steps on my blog if you are interested :)

and the rest of the Quirky Crafts Team

I chose to make a layered tag for this challenge using and image from ''Robins Fetish' . It is a mantilla tag and as a base layer I chose 3 colours of paint and randomly covered the tag.
I used pieces of lace, trimmings, hessian and corrugated card to give more layers and texture paste through a stencil to add depth..
I added a piece of mount board and a smaller tag painted  the same colours, and wrapped some 
hessian 'ribbon' a around each piece. To the mount board I added my image, coloured with 'Montana 
Paint Pens' and to the small tag I glued a metal embellishment...
You can see all of the different layers in these photos, and the final thing I added were a few buttons.
I think each layers adds further interest to the tag. It's a very tactile piece and each time I look at it, I see something slightly different.....happy crafting folks x

I'm not late honest!! I  added  my make yesterday but it vanished along with all my links!! Never mind! Well, as you can see I chose to make a box for my last weeks card, seeing it wouldn't fit into it's envelope! I've used almost the same coloured card and papers as before but didn't 3D Smart Owl  (from Robins Fetish) as I thought there was enough layers for a box lid! I have glossed over the Owls Glasses/eyes just to make them pop out and shine a bit more with Glossy Accents. I've also added yellow foam shapes and an owl charm.
 By the looks of it... other makes may have gone missing too.... so watch out for them later!!


For my project, I used the digital stamp "Shells 4 Sale" from our sponsor Robyn `s Fetish. To make the perfect setting for the business of this child, make a card with layered waves. Seal the color with Spectrum Noir markers and cut the waves, I used the Silhouette Cameo.

Belinda Bunny is the image that I chose for this week reminder. Belinda Bunny ,is one of the beautiful images you can find in Robyn's Fetishwho is also our sponsor for this challenge.

In my case, I used layers, both in the images and in the rest of the card. I painted three sets of flowers, two sets of clouds and a complete image. Once I painted with my Promakers, cut out one by one the images and I placed them in layers.
Finally, I emboss  the bottom of the card to add dimension. I placed a frame, which stick with double layer foam adhesive. Also with double layer foam adhesive,  I placed a sentiment and a flower, that is also made into layers. Enjoy the challenge and see you soon!!!
That's it for now!  It's your turn to have a go and join in. Let's see some fabulous layering and pile it high! Scroll down or go here to find last weeks challenge and Mr Linky!!

Have Fun - The Quirky Crafts Challenge Design Team.
