Wild thing

Hello,

I had to make this very quickly as I suddenly realised I hadn’t made Dr Hubby an anniversary card in all the excitement of getting ready to go away for a week.  To be fair, he never gets me a card so every year I think I could save myself the effort but I never do!  Besides, I hadn’t used this digi stamp from Tiddly Inks and he is too cute to sit unused, so out came the ProMarkers and I whipped up this little number.

I used the sketch from this week’s Stamptacular challenge as my inspiration;

This was also my first attempt at the ‘out of the box’ technique so I could get the balloon outside my main circle and it worked – hurrah!

Since Dr Hubby isn’t a fan of ‘stuff’ on cards, I’m not sure if the bakers twine will go down ok but I couldn’t leave it without any embellishment.  I remain unconvinced by my colouring but am blaming a lack of appropriate light brown colours in my collection; a good excuse to buy some more methinks 😉

Oh, and it was only when writing this blog post that I noticed I hadn’t coloured the little bit of the balloon at the bottom – doh!  I managed to rectify it before handing over the card but didn’t have time to re-take the photos.

I would like to enter the card in the following challenges;

1) Stamptacular (sketch)

2) By the cute and girly (boys/men)

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Hugs,

Black and white

Hello,

I was asked to make a card for a silver wedding anniversary and thought it would be fun to try colouring this lovely LOTV image in greyscale, which I have never tried before.  Ok, so the card ended up basically black and white and didn’t really have a lot of silver on it apart from round the flowers but it turned out that the couple are going to New Zealand so the colours were perfect!  I even used a little bit of ferny foliage to tie in with the NZ theme 🙂

Card recipe;

DP: Bo Bunny Enchanted collection

Flowers: Memory box die

Ferny leaves: cut with Cricut

Pearls: from Wild Orchid Crafts

I would like to enter the card in the following challenges;

1) Lili’s Little Fairies (anything but a square card)

2) Die-ing for a Challenge (anything goes)

3) Simon Says Stamp (put a stamp on it)

4) Papertake Weekly (anything goes + option of non-square card)

Thanks for stopping by,

Hugs,

Kat
