TTCRD- Feb 25-Mar.3

Hello and Welcome to the newest Through the Craftroom Door Challenge!
It's Team B's Turn to give you a little Inspiration this week.  Deonna posted this week, on behalf of Linda,Sandi, Riette, Cara, and Sandra.

The Challenge is always

"Anything Goes"

I hope you will take a look at the wonderful inspiration cards that Team B has created to spark your imagination!

Over at the Outlawz, today is Color Challenge Tuesday!  Laurian picked the awesome photo from which she selected the color palette.  It is so perfect for the 50th Anniversary of the Beatles.

The "Twist" is Let's Be Musical
I used a flower that was a gift from a friend in "Paul Aqua", CM "Mystery Green" PP, The musical note paper is from Michael's.  I tore a pieced of that paper with the word Allegro on it.  The ballerina is one that I drew and colored with my Copics.
I hope I see you at both of the challenges this week!

TTRCD Challenge and Color Challenge at The Outlawz

Welcome to the TTRCD (Through The Craftroom Door) weekly Anything Goes Challenge!  Sandra V. is you hostess this week and Team A is providing the lovely inspiration projects.  Mine is a Doodle Pantry digi that I colored with my Copic Markers.  I buy all of my Copics and refills from our sponsor OOZAK.  Rusty and his team are wonderful and they get my orders quickly and efficiently.

My paper is Basic Grey as are the stickers.  I cut an oval with my Creative Memories cutting system and inked the edge with Color Box chalk in olive.  I tied a piece of organza ribbon around the stem of the flower. I had popped the flower up with pop dots.  Hope you will enter a project for a chance at the awesome prizes up for grabs.

The Outlawz Color Challenge

Over at The Outlawz the challenge this week is to use the lovely color palette chosen by Lindsay and the twist is to "Add Wings".  Wings have to be on your project.

I used a stamp by Stampabilities and used Copics in W1, W3, W5 and W7.  The embossing folder is by Sizzix and I used two shades of gray cardstock.  The pale green oval is a piece of patterned paper I picked up at Michael's in their paper racks.  I have forgotten the manufacturer of the gray roses.  I curled the little wire stems around a small wooden dowel and the gray ribbon is from my stash.  I really liked working with the grays and that soft pale green.

Good Things.....

The Through The Craftroom Door Magazine is here!  Check out the video in my sidebar to preview.  It is loaded with free digis, fabulous inspiration, and great tutorials.

The TTCRD "Anything Goes" challenge is up and running.  I hope to see your fantastic creations there.  My card this week is using our wonderful sponsor "SandiSamples" digi, Sunflowers.  Sandi is offering three digis to this week's randomly drawn winner.

I used a 6 X 6 palette of papers by MME called "Breeze".  It is a lovely palette that was a gift from a friend. The flowers are Copic Markers Y17, Y11, Y000 and a little Y21.  The leaves are G09, G24, and G28.  I added a bit of cotton lace I picked up at Hobby Lobby in the fabric section. and I cut the sentiment from a 7 X 7 piece of "worded" paper.

The Color Challenge at The Outlawz this week is a fun color trio.  It was my turn to pick the color palette and Twist and I grabbed this one on Pinterest.

My Twist was to make it Valentine's Day

My little mousie stamp is from Stampin' Up and they are colored with Copic Markers C1, C3, C5 and C7.  The Heart is RV11, R83 and R85.  The hearts were cut with Creative Memories dual Heart Punch and I inked the edges in Martha Stewart purple chalk ink.  The papers are from CM, too.  I used an unnamed small butterfly punch and embellished them with a purple gem as I did on the sentiment, also.  The sentiment is vellum and I have had it a while.  I punched a tiny heart in the corners.  Come check out the cards by the rest of the team, Laurian, Penny, Ina, Lindsay and Ursula and add your own creation!
