A couple more challenges ...

... to show you.  I've had another go at two challenges I did earlier this week.  The One Layer Wednesday challenge hosted by Jennifer at Styles Ink - I'm find this week's challenge quite tough.  We can only use one image stamp and a maximum of two colours; we can add a senitment if we want. 

I've made a really small card - 3" x 3" - and featured a butterfly stamp and some words - very clean and simple.  I coloured the butterfly with a promarker - shading to give some depth to the image.

Stamps:  Making Memories - Just Chillin' Girl
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black
Promarker:  Lipstick Red

The other challenge I had another go at was from Just Add Ink - here the theme is to "Just Add Summer".  Go through my stash box yesterday afternoon, I found a sweet stencil image that I made ages ago at craft class featuring a flower and some dragonflies.  To me that speaks of summer.  I edged the image with a bright pink felt pen and added a couple of stamped images to the card - which I coloured with Sakura Stardust pens.  Finally I added the sentiment - again speaks of summer to me!!

Stamps:  From a set in my stash (can't remember the company)
Stencil: Borrowed from a friend - coloured with chalks

It's the last day of my daughter's Christmas holiday today, so we're going to have a girly day out.  Jonathan's back to work today - not too keen!!  Hopefully, I'll be back later.  Bye for now and thanks for stopping by.

Hi Deborah :) I visited your blog yesterday and am now following. Very pretty creations! :)

Only 2 colours! Hmm, I might struggle with that! lol

Great results though, and I love how you have used the stencil.

and yes, the OU rocks!

I love making CAS (clean and simple) cards but I find OLC (one layer cards) are very difficult to do. I think because it's just too simple for me. But yours is lovely. The color of the butterfly is nice.

That one layer card is gorgeous and I love the new-look blog too!

The OLW butterfly works so well with the shading you did with that ProMarker - impressive. I like the second too & will have to have to look at what I can do with my stencils. Thanks for the reminder that I have some - though neglected!
