Tilda relaxing

This is for Get Sketchy 14, which this week incorporates the option: 'use your markers:



I've used the colours given for Copic Colour challenge 40:

I cheated a bit, because I used YR04 for Tilda's face and hands, which made her look far too orange, so I then used the 0 blender to take off some of the colour - she still looks a bit orange tanned though!

Using the Magnolia Tilda stamp allows me to enter this for Stampavie and more 70: 'brown + one other' - I know that there's more than one other colour, but I'm counting the red/pink as the other predominant colour with brown.

And, talking of colour, Color dare 43 is asking for rose red, chocolate chip, green galore plus any neutrals, and Color throwdown 69: 'chocolate, olive, cream, dark red. Lots of the circles and swirls behind Tilda are dark red.

This is also another card for There she goes 29: 'in stitches' (on the ribbon).

Kraftin' Kimmie 6 is 'lotsa circles!' there are lots on the BG eva paper.

This is a 'girly' card, so I'm linking too for Die cuts R us 17: 'create a girly project'.

Tuesday morning 20 this week is a recipe: '3 decorative papers (all 3 are BG - the background one isn't the base card - a white blank was covered) , 2 embellishments (ribbon and flowers), 1 flourish (the red wire behind the flowers).

Christmas stars

This card is for Friday sketchers 78:


It's also another one for 3 clovers 40: 'a Christmas card with NO red or green' and also for Ildi Co 5: 'choose any Christmas song and let it inspire you' - the carol for this card is 'We three kings'.

The strips across the gold foiled card are Papermania. The outside of the image is recycled from an old card, with PM paper put behind it. The stars give a nice textured look to the card.

Wild animal!?

Well, he doesn't look very wild to me!

This is for lili of the valley 41 sketch:



It's also for:

Lili of the valley 40
: 'recipe' - 3 papers, 2 stamps (the textured background and the sentiment), 1 type of embellishments (buttons) - I realise that I'm late for this one
Paperplay 41: 'recipe' - 2 patterned papers, 1 ribbon, 3 buttons
Just Buggin' 11: ' into the wild' - use a Cricut animal (lion from 'animal kingdom' cartridge)
Simon says: 'animal antics'
Bubbly scrumptious 12: 'go wild!!!' - wild animals!
Elzybells 31: 'tempting textures' - I used the Elzybell texture background stamp with Colorbox copper embossed with clear; there's also texture on the ribbon and, of course, the buttons.
Little paper shop 42: 'use a die cut'
Another one for Little red wagon 3: 'distress it up' - I used four different colorbox chalk inks on the lion, finishing with an edging of copper.

Papers used were BG two scoops (for the lion and the squares) and obscure (for the textured piece and background).

Hark the herald angels sing

I started this card a long time ago, with the background papers, but couldn't think what else to put on it, until this morning when I saw challenge 5 on Ildi Co: 'an inspiration' - 'choose any Christmas song and let it inspire you' - I then remembered one of my favourite angel stamps by Rubber Stampede, which has 'Hark the herald angels sing' music score in the background. This has been coloured with copics and stickles golden rod added on the wing, which qualifies it for Copic creations 16: 'golds'. Of course, there are also other Christmas carol titles on the torn paper on the right.

SPCC
colour combo 23 is:

The colours for this are all there, even though the pink is minimal on the flowers round the angel's head.

3 clovers 40 asks for a Christmas card with NO red or green, so this fits the bill for that.

It's also good for yesterday's 'ad inspired' day 263 on 365 cards, which was deep blue and white.

The sparkle on the wings makes the card good for Creative Inspirations 36: 'sparkle' and another one for Frosted designs 'bling it on'; also another for TIOT 44: 'we've got the blues'.
