Christmas in July

Hello, thanks for your vist. Today at 
My Time To Craft we have a new challenge for you.
Christmas in July,  just to get you started or to 
think, if you are going to have a theme this year.
We would love for you to visit the blog, see the 
creations by the wonderful design team.
I don't normally make die cut cards, for I am
really a stamper. Well, I felt it was time I did 
have a go, and here is the result.
The dies and Embossing Folder were with a 
Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine. Issue 197
Hope you have a go, I look forward to you 
entering the challenge.

Colour on Kraft

Hello everyone, I hope you are safe and well. Thanks
for taking the time to visit my blog.
Today we begin a new challenge - Colour on Kraft
Please visit the blog for the small details and to see
my fellow team mates ideas for the challenge.
I used Kraft card with a lilac mat card.
The stamped flower heads, are from a set -
Wild Flowers - with the Simply Cards and
Papercraft issue #204. 
I white heat embossed the flowers and coloured  with 
Koh-i-Noor watercolour paints.
I enhanced by adding stalks and small dots using 
a white gel pen.  I also drew an edge to the 
Kraft card with the gel pen. 
Please stay safe and well and thanks again for
your visit.
