Fun & Busy weekend!
Quirky crafts this week, and I chose 'Silhouette' as the challenge, because at this time of year I always see such stunning silhouettes against the sunrise on my way to work. We have Stitchy Bear stamps as our sponsor this week and so the next two cards used their digital stamps. In order to create them both, I inked the backgrounds before putting the card through the printer, which meant a lot of careful measuring, especially in this first one, as the whole card is one layer. To finish this off, I just added hologram glitter glue to the wings. I am also entering this card into CCCB 'back to black', Flutterby Wednesday 'bright colours' MTTC 'Hugs & Kisses' challenge as I made this card for a friend who is going through a tough time and needs some love.
The Pixie Cottage sketch for this week and I am entering it into Crafty cardmakers 'no floral embellishments', Gingersnap Creations GC134 'ribbon' and SCSC 'Anything goes with blue' challenges.
Less is More challenge, which is 'birds'. I actually have a lot of bird stamps I discovered, but thought I would use this one which is new and part of a 7Gypsies set (Conservatory). I have to confess I was a little disappointed with the stamp as the image showed more definition than the stamp gave me. The background was made by colouring with a Whispers pen in a nestability die! I am also entering this into the DYSU 'Pink' challenge. That is all from me. I hope you have a good week.
