INTAAS - Birthday

Please come and join us at International Art and Soul and show us your take on the challenge of 'Birthday' chosen by DT member Chriss. 

I've used a scalloped 7x7 card blank by Craft UK. I used Spellbinder dies to cut out 2 scalloped cards in turquoise and red as the mat for the white scalloped image. This image is a favourite of mine but I cannot remember who drew it - I think it's a Bugaboo but please correct me if I'm wrong. I coloured the cute little elephant with my Promarkers. This card was to be for my daughter in law's niece and she was going to be the grand old age of 18. I printed a ClipArt figure 18 and cut it with a spiky scalloped Spellbinders die before edging with a turquoise Distress Ink. This was added to the top right corner of the image. Apparently she was thrilled to bits with this happy card.

I'm entering it into the following challenges:

Colour Crazy Craft - Anything Goes with colouring
Crafty Creations- Anything Goes
I Love Promarkers - Anything Goes with Promarkers
The Paper Shelter - Colour It
Ike's World - Anything Goes with option of Animals
Lemon Shortbread - Anything Goes
Arty Divas - Anything Goes
Crafts Galore - Anything Goes

International Art and Soul - CAS

The challenge over at International Art and Soul is CAS - Clean and Simple, set by DT member Maggie.

Once again I'm using a Craft UK card blank but this time it's not a square!

I used a stamp by Judi Ikins and it's called Wispy Bamboo. The small sentiment is by Glenda Waterworth. They were both stamped directly on to the card blank using a Moss Green Distress Ink. I know that a bamboo is not a weed, nor a flower, but I had to have one removed from my raised garden bed not long after I moved here - it was growing like a weed and was huge. The sentiment is very true in lots of respects - thinking of the pretty buttercups and dandelions but certainly not that bamboo. 

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

Crafty Sentiments - Anything Goes
Lemon Shortbread - Anything Goes
Make My Monday - Slimline card
Crafty Creations - Anything Goes
Aud Sentiments - Anything Goes + a sentiment
Stinkin' Inkers - Long and Skinny

Thank you to all my visitors.

INTAAS - Mode of Transport

Hello again, it was time for my challenge theme and I chose 'Mode of Transport' so come along and join us at International Art and Soul.

My  card blank is, once again, a 7 x 7 by Craft UK. My chocolate brown card is by Creative Expressions and was set as the mat. I used Spellbinder dies to cut the green centre piece and the yellow 'sun', both cards by Papermill. The image is from one of Joanna Sheen CDs and I set it on the green shaped card with a row of green Mei Flower gems below it. I also used a strip of green gem ribbon which is from my stash of ribbons that I bought in America quite a few years ago. The stash is still going strong! 

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

Crafty Creations - Anything Goes
Lemon Shortbread - Anything Goes
Gem of a Craft - Anything Goes
Crafty Animals - Anything Goes with an animal
Crafts Galore - Anytthing Goes
