Hello and welcome to our new challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday!  This week, the lovely Tenia is hostess for our June Feminine “Anything Goes” Challenge.

This week I decided to have some fun with my card and move away from flowers.
I just love Art Impressions stamps and this one is no exception.

I started by stamping and colouring the images with Copic markers., adding a little Wink of Stella to the scarves and some gold pen to the jewellery and boots. (Just for fun!)

I used Darice EF brick background and attached it to the card front.  I cut a small piece from the bottom, turned it over and added some grey copic colour and glued it back to the bottom to form the footpath. I added some designer paper to the inside to make it look like the interior of a cafe.

After cutting out the images, and the window panels, I marked off the area to be removed from the card front. Once this is done and the front image is attached, it is easy to line up the inside image.   For a little more dimension, I also added another stamped sign for the top of the window.

To finish the inside, I added the last image from the set the inside, so it can be seen through the window and added the sentiment under the inside window.

The front ‘sweet’ die cut is from Cutplorations.  It was cut 3 times from white card and had designer paper and Wink of Stella on top.  The sentiment is from a very old set from a $2 shop years ago!

Thanks again for visiting.  Please be sure to check out the amazing work from the Design Team over at our blog.

 

Happy crafting

Hello and welcome to this week’s Masculine “Anything Goes” Challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday. The Penny is our lovely host this week.
Image may contain: one or more people and textI wanted to try something different this week. Recently a friend made the sea change.  I must admit to being very jealous, as I just love the water. So I decided to try for a seaview where you could sit, relax and enjoy!

So I hope you enjoy my card.

I stamped images from an old “There She Goes – By the Sea”  stamp set to form the scene in Distress Antique Linen. This week’s yellow, sky blue and grey colour challenge over at Less is More fitted just perfectly.

The watercolouring uses only – Denim Jeans, Wild Honey and Hickory Smoke. It was just a matter of building up some layers of colour or adding in some grey to get the variation of  shades.  Lucky for me the wet colours bled just enough on one section of the horizon to form some island effect.

The sentiment came from a great SSS Set Best Hugs.

Thanks so much for visiting.

Please don’t forget to check all the wonderful creations from our great Design Team at our Blog.

I hope you can join in this week! Have some creative fun!
