C is for Cars


 Hello, welcome to my blog. Over at Alphabet Challenges  - our cew challenge starts today - C is for Cars. More details  and the inspiration by the design team available on the blog, please pay it a visit. 

I made a 5 x 7" card. I stamped the car onto tissue paper and allowed it to dry naturally. On a piece of white card, I blended several Distress inks for a colourful background, When the tissue paper was dry I adhered it, very carefully onto the blended piece of card, placing the cars in the opposite direction of the car. I stamped the car onto white cared, coloured with Promarkers , fussy cut and added to the card with 3D foam pads. Added sentiment from the stamp set. The stamps are from a set with Creative Stamping #3 Around the World. Have fun, I look forward to seeing your car in the challenge. Stay well.

Food and or Drink


 Hello, welcome to my blog. We begin our new challenge today at Cardz 4 Galz.  Claudia has chosen #172 Food and or Drink. More details are on the blog, as is the inspiration by the design team. 

My 5 x 7 card depicts a retro bathroom. The wallpaper was created by adding Washi tape to the white card, below I added paper from a paper pad. The dividing strip is also Washi tape.  The lady in the bath is by Flippen Women, no longer in business, but I love playing with my old stamps, now and then. This lady is celebrating her birthday in style, with a sparkling drink in her bath. I first stamped the image, then coloured it with Promarkers, then fussy cut it, adding it with 3D foam pads to the card. Have fun, stay well aned Happy Crafting.
