Today we had to vote in our Federal Election and I decided to get crafty after voting which is a much more plesant experience – LOL.
First up is a card for the CAS Colours & Sketches #321 challenge. I flipped the sketch to be portrait rather than landscape and opted for no sentiment.
I stamped my butterfly image and heat embossed it in black. I then used my new Altenew watercolours for the wings and added a bit of a grey wash to the text.
Next up is a card for 5 challenges:
- Freshly Made Sketches #388
- CASology #343
- CAS Watercolour – May
- Little Red Wagon #497
- 2 Crafty Critter Crazies #26.
I loved the FMS sketch and used 3 critters (including a bird) from the Paper Smooches set ‘chubby chums’ that I watercoloured, fussy cut out and added in place of the circles in the sketch. The sentiment is from Stampin Up ‘itty bitty birthdays’ and the striped DSP is from a MFT 6×6 pack called ‘black & white stripes’.
I got this new set from Stampin up called ‘Free as a bird’ that is due to be released in the new 2019/20 SU catty and I think it is fabulous. I used the matching DSP ‘Bird Ballad’, double stitched nested dies along with my woodgrain embossing folder and my Stampin Blends for colouring in the stamped images.
I used a stamp set I’ve had for ages from Papertrey Ink called ‘Uncorked’. It’s got lots of great wine glass and bottle images along with some fab sentiments. For my card I went a tad snarky! I used a few of my Catherine Pooler Design inks from the Spa Collection.
Well that’s it for today – thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
