WWC294 – Marsha’s Challenge: Anything Goes With a Masculine Twist

I was so excited to have my card chosen by the wonderfully creative Virginia Lu from Virginia’s Show & Share. Thanks so much Virginia. You have made my day!

I was also lucky enough to have my card chosen as a ShowCASed card by Less is More Challenge #430 CASed card. Thanks so much!

Hello and welcome

Today it’s time for our new challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday! This week it is Marsha’s Challenge –Anything with a Masculine Twist.

I had fun playing with the CAS(E) sketch over at Less is More, using 3 Autumn orange, yellow and red.

To start, I stamped and watercoloured the little fox from The Cat’s Pajamas Clearly Swanky Stamp set. I added a little pencil and fussy cut him.

The next thing was to cut a maple leaf using Bo Bunny – Lovely Leaf Dies and smooch it with the same 3 Distress Inks.

While the leaf was drying, I sketched the funnel shape (I placed it vertically) and then inked Hero Arts – Leaf Prints maple leaf overlapping them and using first and second generation stamping, till I was happy with the way it looked. Again, I used the same 3 Distress Inks.

I stamped the sentiment from the same TCP set in brown ink, before popping up the leaf and fox using raised tape, to make it look as though he was flying down through the leaves, using the leaf like a parachute!

I loved the way this card turned out. I hope it brings you a smile.

Don’t forget to head over to our blog to check out the wonderful inspiration from the rest of our Design Team.

I look forward to seeing what you create this week!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments.

I hope your enjoying some crafty time.

Stay safe and have a good day

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
