Gerda Steiner monthly Challenge

Nap Time

My card for this months challenge was a rushed one as I left it to the last minute as usual. It's the National Folk Festival here in Australia and I have my four day pass so I just about ran out of time. I haven't missed one since they moved it permanently to Canberra 20 odd years ago. The image was coloured with copics and then fussy cut and adhered to the background. Used distress oxide and a Darkroom Door stamp called gum tree to make the background then this was framed with patterned paper from a Kaiser 6 x 6 pad called base coat.

The Outlawz Monthly Progressive Challenge

Fishing you a great Day

My blog has been neglected lately but life seems to just get in the way and something has to give. I still managed to make a few cards but haven't really got back into the getting them on the blog. This card is for the monthly challenge at Outlawz and I am early with it for a change. I love this lovely image by Anne Fenton and it was a joy to colour with my copics. Cut it out with a large stitched die from My Favourite things, adhered it to a piece of blue card then onto a white card base. The sentiment is computer generated.

Colour Challenge Stamp Nation

You Make Everyday Awesome

Received the new Split Chevron stencil the other day and decided to have a play so I used it on the card with the colours from the challenge. Had been playing with some old flower dies and this is the result. First I white embossed the stencil on white card then sponged on my old Versacolor small cubes in Orchid, Canary, Orange and Camellia and love the way they blended. Mixed the flowers from three old sets and then cut the leaves from one of the sets. Used a Spellbinders border die to cut the embossed panel then cut another strip in dark blue to match my card base. The sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp set called Hand Lettered Encouragement. 

Loved the way I used a lot of old things I had not used for ages so maybe I need to drag more out to play with.
