Pals Paper Arts #194 & Retro Sketches #105

Hey Everyone

I’ve had a wonderful long weekend –  did lots of relaxing and a bit of card making.  One of the cards I made was combined for two challenges – the colour challenge at Pals Paper Arts and the sketch challenge at Retro Sketches.  Here are their inspiration pics:

Do you ever have those days when one card will work for you and then the next one doesn’t?  That was me today.  The card I’m sharing was the one that didn’t quite work for me – not sure why, but I’m just not feeling it…..  I did a bit of colouring on this card that I enjoyed.  Stampin’ Up!s Happy Watercolour is perfect if you want to have a go at it.  I then fussy-cut my stems out and raised them up on my card.  It was then that I realised I’d forgotten to add Smoky Slate to my card. So up my flowers came so I could sneak Smoky Slate in by adding some water splotches to the background.

Now you’re going to have to come back on Friday if you want to see the card I made today that I love!

Thanks for stopping by.

Freshly Made Sketches #101

Hey Everyone

This weeks sketch at Freshly Made Sketches is brought to us by the fabulously talented Linda.

My niece came to see me a little while ago and told me she was having her first baby – of course I cried (I’m sure they’ll never let me forget that!).  I’ve use this weeks sketch to create a card for her baby shower.  The colours she’s having for her party are pink and purple so I’ve used some Strawberry Slush and Wisteria Wonder DSP and the stamp set I’ve used is a retired Stampin’ Up! one called A New Little Someone.  Here’s my card:

Hey Everyone

I’ve got a quick one tonight – I’ve made my card for two challenges.

I’ve used the colour palette from Dynamic Duos which is to create a project using Concord Crush & Wisteria Wonder.

And I’ve combined these gorgeous monochromatic colours with this fabulous sketch from Create with Connie & Mary.  Here’s their sketch:

 

Thanks for taking a look.
