A couple of challenges
Hope you are having a good weekend….mine is extra good as it is a long weekend here in Australia (Queen’s Birthday Public Holiday!) Yay!
I have 2 cards to share with you tonight that I am entering into a couple of challenges…. so let’s begin.
First up is a little flowery number for my Mum. She is coming to visit us this weekend! I don’t get to see my Mum very often as she lives 9 hours away, but she is coming to spend 4 nights with us and I wanted to make her a card to tell her I love her. Her favourite flower is a rose so it is a perfect fit! The flower is a digi stamp from the DigiStamp Boutique which I coloured in with prismacolor pencils and gamsol.
I am entering this one into 2 competitions. The DigiStamp June Customer Competition and also the CAS-ual Friday #6 Tic Tac Toe challenge…this is so cool as you get to pick the combination that works best for you!
My combination for this challenge is the diagonal one – Emboss, Dies/Punch, Buttons. I dry embossed the background, my die is the end of a Spellbinder’s Labels 4 die and I have used a beautiful button from Jane’s Doodles.
Next up is another card that I made for the CAS-ual Friday Tic Tac Toe challenge. This time I chose the middle combination – gems, die/punch/flowers. I love how it turned out. I am also entering this one into the June Hero Arts Blog Challenge. This one uses the technique of water colouring with distress inks, water and a paint brush.
