Hi there. I’ve got a little behind in a few challenges I wanted to enter, so this time I’m posting two cards.
The first card is after playing with some alcohol inks – after watching Tim Holtz Facebook live sessions – he inspired me to just have a go:
I played very simply with the alcohol inks, as I knew I wanted to create a green and a purple piece of Yupo to die cut these images. Once die cut and arranged as you see, I stamped the Clearly Besotted sentiment.
Very simple I think – but I love these colours together. One thing I did notice – even with my Gemini Junior and a couple of passes – I still needed to cut those leaves a little with some scissors……….
I shall be entering this first card into the following challenges:
Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge – anything goes with option ‘time to relax’
CAS Colours and Sketches – gorgeous grape, granny apple green, pacific point (alcohol inks sorta similar)
A Perfect Time To Craft – anything goes
This second card took me a little longer:
You may be asking yourself why this card too longer – because of that blinking strip! I used Neat and Tangled Quilted Backdrop stamp onto the base card, after first masking off most of the card – this was stamped directly onto the card base – hence the masking.
I had to draw some extra lines in at the top and bottom, and then I coloured with Copics – trying to match the colours for the Color Throwdown Challenge.
It looked to bare when I had coloured, so I then added a couple of black card strips to ‘frame’ the coloured strip.
The sentiment if from Time For Tea Designs.
I shall be entering this second card into the following challenges:
CAS(E) This Sketch – sketch
Color Throwdown – orange, burgundy, green, pink
Crafty Sentiments Designs – anything goes
