Pink and black

A very simple card using one of my fav colour combos and the sketch on My Creative Clutter for this week:




Day 184 on 365
was Movie Monday and the prompt was Pretty in Pink.

The black paper is DCWV and the pink strip across the middle is Fancy Pants. The photo is one that was left over after I'd made the music and dance 50s cards the other day, so it seemed just right to use here. Once again, unfortunately, the scan makes the outline of the photo look black rather than silver as it is irl.


Another sketch card

This card is for the sketch on CCEE Stampers for this week:



I've used copics to colour the image - mainly R29, B05 and Y11, which are the nearest I've got to R29, BG05 and Y15 given for challenge 30 on Copic Colour.

I'm gradually doing some of the 365 cards challenges that I missed - day 154 was: planes, trains and automobiles, so I'm linking for this.

The surrounds of the sentiment and the steering wheel are silver (not black as it looks here).

Tilda is in her rightful place!

Having chosen the sketch from Just Magnolia challenge 21 yesterday and then forgotten to use a Magnolia stamp, I've made amends and done Just Magnolia challenge 22 launched today: 'embossing', incorporating the sketch from challenge 21 as well:



Two other challenges call for embossing - Paper Maniac 1 and Crafty Creations 32.

This week's Stamp Something is asking us to use our favourite embellishments - I love using flowers and blooms, so they are in evidence on this card for that challenge.

This Tilda stamp and the flowers with brads were given to me quite a while ago as part of a blog challenge prize.

I'm a bit disappointed that the scan doesn't sufficiently show the green shade of the base card and one of the layers. The two sorts of embossing were done with Cuttlebug embossing folders.

I've just realised that I haven't used any patterned paper for this card, so I'm linking it as another entry for PaperPlay challenge 34: no patterned paper.

Analemma

This is the picture given for challenge 40 today on Art Creations Friday:



I googled 'time of day' because I also wanted to link for this week's Mixed Media Monday challenge with that title - and I found this:



with an explanation here of what an analemma is and how the picture was built up.

I then used Digital Image Pro to play around with the two pictures and this is what I came up with:



Theme Thursday this week has the challenge 'Vintage women ATCs' - the proportion of this digital image are correct for this - I'm just showing it larger here, but am printing out an ATC size.

Crazy Amigo
challenge this week is 'hats', so I thought this lady was appropriate for that (I might do something else with hats if I can).
