A sketch and colour combo

Challenge 39 on A Spoon Full of Sugar is a sketch by Debbie:

I've ued the colour combination on this week's challenge on Magnolia vs Stampavie for this card:

Edwin has been coloured in with copics and mounted on HOTP paper and K & Co Hannah, with a strip of PM sticky ribbon.

Postcard from Paris

This postcard is for two challenges.

First of all, the UKStampers Sunday challenge 27 for this week is 'postcard from Paris' and secondly, the challenge on Sunday Postcard Art is 'hearts', so I've combined the two.

I've randomly stamped hearts with archival grape ink and sponged in places to vary the tone. The pictures are from Crafty Individuals 'people and places'.

A stitch in time!

And it is only just in time for this week's challenge on Dottie's World.

The challenge was to use stitching (not stamped or faux, but real stitching) - I got out some silver thread and a needle and made a rather pathetic attempt at stitching across the edge of the blanket on this gorgeous baby download from the love and marriage collection.
The image was printed on to linen card and the surrounding area wasn't meant to be all blue - it started off with just inking the edges, but somehow it spread! (and I wasn't going to waste it!)




It looks much brighter irl.

A wheelie quick card!

This is a wheelie quick card for a couple of challenges. Sunday Stamper challenge 47 is 'Oh boy!', so this is OK for that.

Colour Create 3 is 'red, white and blue' with the option of 'travel or holiday', so this fits the travel option.

On CBC Carolyn's CBCC084 challenge is 'From A to B'.

I know that it's a very simple card, but the paper speaks for itself and it would just seem mad to cover too much of it. It's American Traditional Designs Guy's Life Earthtones Guy Talk.

The bike stamp is by PM and the sentiment printed with dymo letratag clear tape.

Make a moo or two: Marie Antoinette

While I was making a twinchie of Marie Antoinette, I remembered that last week's challenge on Make a moo or two was 'Marie Antoinette', so I did this digitally (I know it's late though).

Small World of Inchies & Twinchies: Marie Antoinette

Having replaced my 'the kiss' twinchie photo this morning, I went to the Small World of Inchies & Twinchies blog and saw today's topic: Marie Antoinette, so I made this:

A picture of MA cut out and mounted on a Crafty Individuals background, mounted on to a piece of K & Co Hannah.
