ColourQ Challenge 82

Hi Everyone

I’m entering colourQ Challenge #82 tonight with the following card.  I don’t think I’ve ever had the challenge of creating a card with this many greens at once!  It took me a while but this is what I finally came up with.

The colours I’ve used are – Always Artichoke, Pear Pizzaz, Certainly Celery DSP, Baja Breeze and Whisper White.  I tried to use Kiwi Kiss – but I just couldn’t make it work. Sorry about the lighting – it got really late and I couldn’t make myself get the light tent and equipment out!

Thanks for stopping by!

See ya

Case Study Challenge 36

Hi Everyone

April’s muse for Case Study Challenge as previously posted is Silke Ledlow. Her cards are always beautifully coloured.  This is her card that we used for inspiration.

I’ve gone dauber mad!  I’m sponging everything as I’m addicted to the dirty vintage look (if there is one).  Crumb Cake is such a good colour to sponge around card as I think it makes it looks very old.  I’ve used En Francais (again) on the second layer of Very Vanilla and then stamped the flourish from Vintage Vogue in Basic Black over the corners, as plain Very Vanilla on plain Very Vanilla was doing my head in.  I used Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke markers to colour in the flower from Elements of Style.  Just to finish off the card I shimmered the butterfly from Strength & Hope and added striped black grosgrain ribbon.

Thanks for taking a look.

Inkspirations Colour Challenge 66

Hi Everyone

Better late than never!  I’ve had this card made for the Inkspirations Colour Challenge for a couple of days but have been too busy gadding about on this holiday to get a chance to take a photo of it and upload it until now.

I didn’t pack my tempting turquoise so I had to settle for marina mist instead (you can only take so many colours on holidays!)

Thanks for stopping by!

JAI 64

Hi Everyone

The challenge over at Just Add Ink this week is to create a project using your favourite chocolate bar wrapper.  This is really hard as I have so many favourites!  I decided to use what was in my cupboard and not go out and buy something  I’d end up eating as soon as I finished the challenge!

I know this is not technically a chocolate bar, but it is chocolate and they do taste nice. They also take me back to my youth, even though they are much smaller now than I remember.

I used the scallop circle die for the card and ran it through the big shot as it reminded me of the shape of the wagon wheel.

Thanks for stopping by!

Products Used:
Cardstock: Early Espresso, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi, Very Vanilla

Mojo Monday 186 and ColourQ 80

Hi Everyone

Today I’ve decided to enter 2 challenges at once – mainly because I’m away at the moment and could only bring limited supplies.  My husband still managed to bring 300 fishing rods (well, maybe not that many, but it seems like it!) and all his fishing stuff.  I’m entering Mojo Monday and colourQ challenges by combining the design from Mojo Monday and the colour scheme from colourQ.


Thanks for taking a look!

Old Olive or Rich Razzleberry?

Hi Everyone

With the challenges that I’ve been entering lately I haven’t made two of any one card in a long time.  I’ve just been making “one off’s” and then move on to the next design.  When I started out making this card I couldn’t decide between Old Olive or Rich Razzleberry as my main colour, so I made one of each.  In the end I couldn’t decide which I like better – what’s your choice?  (maybe I better stick to “one off’s” so I don’t confuse myself anymore!)

See ya

Mojo Monday 185

Hi Everyone

Today’s card is for the Mojo Monday Challenge 185.  I’ve used the rose again I know, but I absolutely love it.  When I saw the sketch for the challenge I kinda knew I would like to use it for this card.

Concord Workshop Make

Hey All

On Saturday I had my “day of play” by heading off to my Aunt’s house in Torquay for a workshop.  We had a great day of making cards and this was one of the cards we made.  I know, I’ve used Sense of Time again, but it’s what I’m loving at the moment.

The colours I’ve used again are basic black, concord crush and whisper white.  My upline, Pam, recently made a bookmark using Sense of Time, En Francais and Elements of Style. I loved this effect so I CASEd this look for my card.

I recently purchased the square scallop clear die for my big shot, so I wanted to give this a go.   This is the card I came up with – hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by.

See ya
