Back with a vengeance!
I've just noticed the date of my last card challenge and I've been away longer than I thought! The main reason for this is that I made the mistake of revisiting a PC game that used to be a favourite of mine and guess what? I got hooked again! I've now decided that it's time to rejoin the real world so I'm back.
If you have visited my other blog lately you'll see that I've been quite busy with family cards for May and June, but now I've completed all those (hopefully) I've been enjoying getting "stuck in" to completing some challenges.
The first is for My Time To Craft's "Brads and Eyelets" and for this I've used a sweet image from a download kit I got from PC Crafter some time ago, but haven't used before. These pretty little girls tucking into their ice cream are mounted onto some lilac polka dot paper and then onto some pale green cardstock, (all from my stash) some pale green and lilac brads have been used on this. A strip of the cardstock has been set with lilac eyelets and a little K & Co sticker and used down the side of the card.
The second is an ATC for the Tilda and Friends challenge of "Give me Sunshine". For this I've used some blue paper (from Cuddly Buddly's preppy papers) for the sky and some green paper for the grass, onto this I've popped some little flowers that I made from cutting up some paper and the sun is again from a Cuddly Buddly download kit. Finally, little Tilda herself all ready to pick those flowers!
For my third challenge I've made a tag, this is for Rainbow Lady's "Monotone Rainbow Colours". I've decided to go for the colour green and I've used a gorgeous Serendipity stamp from Joanna Sheen called "Spring in Provence". I've stamped this with StazOn and then coloured with pencils and blended with Sansador and paper stumps (a new technique but I love it). The little sentiment comes with the stamp and says "For Love of Art" and the tag is completed with some dark green chiffon ribbon.
Finally, I've made another tag for Tag You're It the challenge was to make a monogram tag, to do this I've made my tag and covered it with some pretty blue paper (don't know where I got it from, sorry) I've used a stencil to make the letter D and covered this in a different blue paper and added some stickles glue to this for a bit of sparkle (I've also added a tiny letter o and t inside the D as this will go to my friend with her birthday card later this month), this paper and the pink bow on the D are actually printed from a Daisie download kit, all finished off with some pink sparkly ribbon.
