Well hello there – it’s the start of school holidays here and I’ve got a bit of time to myself while Miss K is catching up on her sleep. I’m playing along with 8 challenges today – yep – you read right – but there are only 5 cards!
First up is for a pair of challenges:
I had an alcohol ink background panel in my stash, so i decided to use it for this card with a floral die that covers the whole card. The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions ‘Simple Strips Background’.
Next is for Time Out Challenges #138 – Funny.
I love a funny card so quickly created a card with some images I had previously coloured and cut out and added a sentiment I created on my PC.
Next is a card for The Card Concept #118 which is a photo inspiration challenge.
A used a stamp set from Uniko called ‘Happy Succulents’ which I water coloured and fussy cut out. I added another sentiment from Taylored Expressions ‘Simple Strips Background’ which I cut apart and added some diagonal stripe DSP onto a coral card base.
I did a bit of masking on this card to create the circle at the top and then stamped 3 sizes of dots from the MFT ‘Bokeh builder’ stamp set in the SU inks of So Saffron, Bermuda Bay and Pool Party. I then rounded 2 corners for the finishing touch.
I recently cup up all my SU DSP so that I would start to use it and not hoard it, so these 2 challenges came at the perfect time! I used the matching DSP and stamp set from SU called ‘Geared up garage’. I did a little bit of surgery on my car image (after it was stamped) to turn it into a convertible. I used 3 DSP layers and created my sentiment on my PC. I added a bit of crystal effects to the windscreen to make it look like glass.
Well, that’s it for today. Thanks for looking and have a great day.
