Sarah Kay Challenge Blog is a sketch. I really enjoyed making this card and feel like I'm getting back into making cards again.
I dusted off my Craft Robo and used it to cut out my scalloped oval and also the large scalloped rectangle. The papers I used are from DCWV and the blue flower is a Bazzil Bling with a small prima on top. I stamped my image using black stazon and coloured most of the image with prismacolour pencils and the the flowers I water-coloured using sakura gel glitter pens. I then used some distress inks to do the grass and sky.
This weeks challenge on Magnolia Challenge blog is to make a Christmas card and you have to use at least one Magnolia stamp. This card was really quick to make, but I do like the finished card. I don't have a Christmas Magnolia stamp, so I plumped for this Tilda image which one of my SBS sisters sent me (Fairymadjo) a while ago. I watercoloured the image using sakura gel glitter pens and it has a lovely shimmer to it. I then simply layered the image onto some green and red card. The paper I used on this card is from Papermania and to finish it off I just added some ribbon.
This card I made for the Sketch Saturday challenge blog. I used cream cardstock for my main card and the various papers and card from my stash. The owl is a download from Pink Petticoat and I coloured it using primacolour pencils. The little flowers are fabric and have little gem centres and these were from C&C.
