I've made a card for a friends' son' birthday. I thought I'd post it in the latest Annabelle Stamps Challenge, which is a sketch challenge.
I used some really cute stamps from The Greeting Farm My Guy Ian set and coloured with my Copic Markers. This time I think I did a good job of colouring. The frame came from a Kaisercraft set. I don't often have such simple cards, but with the sketch it was easy to follow.
My second card is for the Muse Challenge #10. I wasn't able to participate for the past two weeks, as I was busy doing a commission. But this week's challenge has some beautiful colours and a fun design. This week's card was created by Ardyth Percy-Robb, whose blog I accidently came across last weekend and I enjoyed looking at her cards so much I signed up as a follower straight away.
I love how her circles are inked like fireworks, and the design is so vibrant, yet simple.
My card uses Ardyth's layout, but I've covered more of the card with the flowers and the sentiment. I thought I had used all of her colours, but I realise now I've forgotten the pink. (You can't tell it was a mistake, can you?)
The sentiment stamp is from Hampton Art Cling Word Borders and the flower is from a HOTP set called Wildflowers. I love the rhinestone border as it lifts the sentiment and makes it stand out, without the trouble of foam mounting etc.
Anyway, I've cleared out the old cupboards from my craft room, ready to build the new one tomorrow, but I've still got to vacuum the carpet in there, so I'll go now.
P.S. Did anyone notice the changes I've made to my blog?
