City Crafter Challenge Blog. I have to say that I really like this style, although I am still learning how best to get it to work. This first card was inspired by the coffee and cream colour scheme from Simon says stamp. I used Hero Art, Penny black and Crafty Individuals stamps, distress (3 brown shades) and versafine ink pads. As it is a birthday card it also fits with Flourishes Timeless Tuesday and spoon full of sugar. I am also entering this for the 'in the bottom of my garden lives' challenge from crafty creations.
Less is More 'Spring' challenge. This time I used the snowdrop stamp three times in embossed boxes and a swirl stamp to the left. I think I actually prefer my original version, as something doesn't quite work about this although I can't put my finger on what is wrong exactly. Still, it was fun to experiment.
less is more challenge, although it is still relatively clean and simple. This time I used a flower fairies stamp and coloured her with promarkers in various shades of pink (some look more purply for some reason). I then used nestabilities to cut round her and emboss the edge, and then to mat her onto pink. I finished the card off with some little pink flowers, a pearl, two punches (leaf and hearts) and the Penny Black 'Happy Birthday sentiment. This card therefore fits with the 'pink' challenge from Ooh La La, the fantasy challenge from creative card crew, 'anything goes' from Flutterby Wednesday and the 'fairy and 2 punches' challenge from Crafty Cardmaker. That is all from me for now. Apologies for the dodgy photographs, the flash bleached out the colours somewhat. Have a great weekend everyone.
