52CCT May Theme

Hello Everyone,
Today is the 3rd week in May and this means it is time for a Theme Challenge with the Design Team from 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge. And Rosie has chosen this theme for us to play with

I have to admit that this one stumped me as to what to make for quite awhile. But this is the card that I came up with

52CCT 05 2019 wk3 Theme

I decided to have a play around and just started making something. I knew that I wanted something other than people singing. I knew that I had this “Baaah Humbug” set which I used this sheep image and the song book came from a 2nd Set called “Holiday Party Animal” both stamp sets are by Lawn Fawn. I coloured these sheep in with my Copic Markers. Then I needed to find a background paper suited and I thought I had some sheet music paper but I couldn’t find anything in my stash.

So I used the string of Christmas lights from the Baaah Humbug set and some musical notes from another set. After I stamped this out I thought that the background was a little plain so I decided to do a splatter technique. I got out my spatter cubby and put the background in it then I got 3 Distress Inks, my spray bottle, a small fat brush and a stamp block and had some fun flicking ink. I must admit that I had to trust the process. After setting the panel aside to dry I rubbed the ink pad onto sections of the card base so that the colours would co-ordinate with the panel. Then I assembled everything together gluing the panel directly to the base but popping up the sheep on foam tape.

52CCT Colours for May

Hello Everyone,
Today is the 2nd week of May which means its Colour Challenge time over at the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge. And this time Rosi has chosen these colours for us to work with

This was an interesting combo to try and figure out what to do. So I actually went to my go to for when I am stuck my printed sketch box. I searched through it and found something I could work with it is actually a previous 52CCT sketch from November 2017 and this is it

and this is the card that came out of combining these all together

I flicked through my stamp sets and I found the Baaah Humbug set from Lawn Fawn and thought I could make something with this. I first cut out the oval elements then I knew where I could place my stamps from the set. I used some distress inks for the background then I coloured the everything in with my Copic Markers.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my Design Team work today. I hope that we will see you over at the 52CCT and that you will join in with the colour challenge. Before you go I would love to leave you with this thought
