This afternoon, I made a card for CAS-ual Fridays - CFC48 challenge - opposites attract. The team want us to make a card using two colours that are opposite each other on the colour wheel; I picked green and red.
Before I came out to the US, I was lucky enough to win Cup of the Week at The Play Date Cafe; I won a $25 voucher to spend at Simon Says - and I've spent it!!! I had such fun, but have to admit that I spent rather more than $25. My new goodies arrived this afternoon and I've used one of the stamps on this card. Isn't this flower lovely? I coloured it with my Aquarell watercolour pencils - I love the soft finish you get using this medium. I'll play with the rest of the stamps later in the week.
Stamps: Stampendous - Festive Flower; There She Goes - Sentimental - Thank you
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Staedtler Aquarell Pencils, card from stash
This card is for Tara (many of you know her). Tara set up a new challenge last year - St Luke's Charity Card Challenge and I was invited to join the team. I was delighted to accept - it's been a fun year with some wonderful challenges, and lots more to come. One of the great things with this challenge is that you can send Tara cards to sell and help raise funds - to date the total stands at £513.50. This month the challenge is to "Bling it up!" and there's still plenty of time to join the fun. So this is for Tara - to say how thoughtful you are - I really love the cards and gift you sent me - thank you. Here are the cards Tara sent me:
Love the American flag and row of houses - a perfect welcome to your new home card - love it.
Don't you just love this one - the words are so lovely and the girls look wonderful (wish I looked like that!)
Here's the card that I made for last week's Less is More - LIM62 - three shades of green challenge; the one that I couldn't upload yesterday because the technology failed :( I used some lovely stamps from a new UK based company, Uniko Studios. The stamps are fab and I'm really looking forward to seeing more soon.
Stamps: Uniko Studios - Time, Extra Time
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Certainly Celery, Wild Wasabi, Old Olive
Accessories: Paint Chip from The Home Depot, card from stash
