Just For You

Another autumn themed card - this time using up a scrap of some cardstock that I had coloured using shaving foam and Distress Ink refills.  It was the perfect size for the sketch - and the right colours too.

L is for Lattice and lots of other things

The current challenge at The Butterfly Challenge centres around a Lattice Card.  I have never made one of these before so I had a few issues in the construction of it but I'm pleased with the finished result.  The colours for this challenge are Lapis Lazuli, Lemon and Lavender.  The other elements were Lace, Layers and of course the butterfly.  Once again, I managed to incorporate all seven elements in my card - almost forgot the lace but fortunately checked back to the challenge before constructing my card.



I would like to enter:
The Butterfly Challenge - Letter L
https://butterflyspotchallenge.blogspot.com/2019/09/128-spin-butterfly-wheel-with-l-for.html

I followed the tutorial for the first lattice card found here.  The lace is some from my stash.  I coloured the lemon flowers with lavender copic marker (I didn't have any lavender ones but felt I had enough lemon already).  I added some gemstones to the centres of the flowers.  I raised up the butterfly using mount tape to give the card a bit more dimension.  I am hoping I have enough layers - the flowers are layered over the lace which is layered over the lattice.

Plaid Christmas

This weeks optional twist at CHNC is to include some plaid, checked or gingham paper.  I used some offcut pieces of plaid paper:


I doodled around the edge of the card with a Staedtler Pigment Liner.  The image is from Bugaboo Stamps and is coloured with copic markers.  I inked around the edge of the image with Distress Ink.  I added some glitter stars as well.

Tuesday Morning Sketches - Sketch
http://tuesdaymorningsketches.blogspot.com/2019/09/tuesday-morning-sketches-519.html

I have used a paper from a paper pad by Rosie's Studio.  The border is from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  The sentiment is from an embellishment pack by Rosie's Studio.  The image is from Gerda Steiner and is coloured with copic markers.  I also added a grosgrain ribbon.

Happy Birthday

I really wanted to use this image for the challenge at The Outlawz Songs and Rhymes but I didn't have any dog die-cuts.  I ended up solving the issue by using a fox die-cut (member of the same family) and cutting off most of the tail to leave a shorter domestic dog-like tail.

This week's optional theme at CHNC is to Use Some Patterned Paper.  I have just used a little bit that contrasts well against the white background:



I have also used an image from Bugaboo Stamps which I coloured with copic markers and Kindy Glitz.

Happy 50 Birthday

A friend of the family is turning 50 next week.  As far back as I can remember she has been involved with horses and equestrian events.

QKR Stampede - Anything Goes
http://qkrstampede.blogspot.com/2019/08/qkr-stampede-challenge-361.html

I have used a paper from a paper pad by Kaisercraft that is relatively unpatterned (there are areas of lighter green but once I started covering the paper with the image, sentiment and embellishments it is harder to see that).  The horse image is from QKR Stampede and the sentiment is from Netty's Cards.  I printed out an image from Squigglefly which I fussy cut to use as an embellishment.  Colouring of the images is with copic markers.  I also added some gold rope and gold pearls.  Matting is gold foil cardstock.
