Leonardo collage

I love taking part in the Soartful challenges. I usually make something digitally, incorporating the given picture. However, this time I couldn't resist using my Leonard stamp that features part of the picture given on Soartful for 'I am woman':

I wanted the stamp to be the main focus of the card, so I was pleased to find a sketch that was simple enough to achieve this. It's for Inspirational card sketches 68:

The background paper is BG obscure. I lightly distressed the image in parts with spiced marmalade and tattered rose inks. The piece of paper across the middle is from my scraps.

This is also for Pink elephant 68: 'orange'

Kraft, white, fuchsia

This is for Monday lunchtime sketch 123 on Technostamper:

For this card I used this Magenta stamp (one of my favourites):

I stamped with versamark and embossed with hot pink powder (far better sheen irl than on here). Background paper is from the BG basic kraft paper pad - other bits and pieces from scraps, including the piece of ribbon.

This is also for:

Design Dollies colour challenge: 'kraft, white and fuchsia' (I know the white is limited, but it is there on the ribbon)
Tellen's place 19: 'pink and brown'

Black, grey, white with a touch of teal

This is for the sketch on Cards & things 33:


Papers are from the PM touch of teal box, the flower in the oval is die cut decoupage and the butterflies (a bit of poetic licence needed for their size compared with the flowers) are sizzix die cut with oil on water card that reflects a silvery teal when the light is right.

This is also for:

Cupcake 92: 'black and grey with one colour choice' - having used teal for the previous card, I thought I'd also use it here
Allsorts 54: 'black, white and one other'
Jacksonbelle: 'one neutral colour (white), one colour other than black (teal) and black (including shades of grey - hope that's acceptable)
Pollycraft 45: 'buttons and butteflies'
Flutter by Wednesday 111: 'open' - included butterflies
PaperPlay 21: 'up in the aire' - butterflies
Incy wincy 43: 'button up!!!'
Pixie dust studio 24: 'going round and round' - buttons
Ann's creative nook 89: 'round and round we go!' - buttons
ECP 13: 'buttons'
Secret crafter Saturday 85: 'buttons and blooms'

Teal & brown

This is for the Critter sketch 15 (I turned it round):

The papers, the 3D sentiment and the sticky strips are from the PM touch of teal box. The flowers are die cut decoupage.


It's also for:

Crafty Angels week 36: 'teal & brown'
Cutie Sunday 94: 'freestyle'
