Good Morning Everyone! Last Sunday we launched a BRAND NEW Challenge No. 42 here at Anything But a Card Challenges! CLICK HERE if you missed the fabulous creations by our week one team of designers!


The current Challenge... is one that that can be expressed in just one word... "CELESTIAL". For Anything But a Card Challenges No. 42 use the prompt "CELESTIAL" to inspire your muse. There are so many definitions of this prompt... we encourage you and your muse to create with your vision of "celestial".

My take on Celestial...the blue night skies and the silver stars! Taking these colors as inspiration, I have altered an old canvas painting of mine. I have made a collage of this lovely lady on a book box with bees wax. For more on what this lady is up to, please visit my BLOG





I used a photo mount and foamboard to make a box frame. Painted background and clear stamped onto acetate and brushed white pan pastel over the top. Visit my BLOG to see more details.


When I think celestial, I think angels. Using the freezer cracked method I created these angel wings to adorn my mixed media Christmas wall hanging. Drop by my blog HERE for more pictures and a Snapguide tutorial on how I achieved this look. Merry Christmas!


I love the Christmas story where the Three Wisemen followed the star to the stable in Bethlehem, thus I have created a candle holder to tell the story of the wisemen. I hope you will stop by Her Craftiness to see how this was created.



Scarves are all the fashion rage right now, and what better way to celebrate a Celestial theme by wearing a few of my favorite angel stamps?  This is an easy to recreate project, although it can be time consuming if you choose a large scarf like I did! Visit my BLOG for a short tutorial and you too can be wearing a wonderful creation of your own choice! 



"Wishing On A Star"
This is a Mixed Media piece using one of my Creative Lovely sketches. If you would like to see the tutorial for this artwork please go visit my BLOG. I really enjoyed making this artwork for the challenge, and I hope this inspires you to take the challenge.
