Card Project, Cards and Craft, Challenge Entry

TSOT no.467

Hello everyone, today has been so windy outside that I have retreated into my craft space because this weather is playing havoc with my health 😦 So going into my craft space is a diversion tactic for me – get my mind onto something else other than my health. I decided that I would make some cards. Some I can share now but some will be coming up in design teamwork. So onto one that I can share now.

And this card started with a sketch from Try Stampin’ On Tuesday #467.

Isn’t this a fun sketch to play around with. With this sketch came an optional theme of making a scene. I decided to go with the optional theme as well because I had started colouring up this image and just added a few more details. The gum tree to the left and the dunny (toilet) are digi images from Make it Crafty who are no longer in business but I still use these images because I still like using them. The scene has been coloured in with my Polychromos Pencils.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project. I hope that you are having a great day. Before you depart my blog I want to leave you with this final thought for this post.

Even on my bad days I try to find the good … even if it is a little harder sometimes.

Until my next post,
Be Kind to Yourself and Others.

Hello everyone, I told you in my previous post that I would be popping in again with another card project. It is for another sketch challenge as I love sketches for my card making.

Here is the sketch that started this card off.

The digi image that I used is from Bugaboo Digi Image called “Jack and Diane – Love Tag” I was in need of an anniversary card for a wonderful couple that we know. So the colouring is based on them and their fav colours. The papers that I chose to use was from an already started paper pad and for the stripe at the side I didn’t have anything that truly matched so I decided to make my own with distress inks and a heart stencil. I love using inks and stencils in this way – it can also add a little fun.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card using this sketch. Before you go from my blog I would love to leave you with this thought for this post.

Until my next post,
Be Kind to Yourself and Others.
