Hello every one
How are you all going? I have been busy lately with a creative burst (no complaints here I can tell you!). I have completed a few scrapbooking LO's with a little help from both the 'net & some mags' that I borrowed from the library. Also I have re-used some LO's that I have done before from classes or kits, but as usual I have put my own spin on them.
This first LO I have done before but with the Basic Grey Lemonade papers in a kit I got from a LSS. I used the last LO as a template for this one & honestly I have changed it by turning the template on it's side & of course used completely different papers & embelishments. I am not sure if you have seen this LO before so appologise if I have posted about already.
This next LO I have done I used a template from a Papercraft Planet group Scrappy Sunday. I did have great intentions of doing at least three of the four sketches & entering the challenge. Unfortunately time is against me & I need to be more organised with the sizes of my photos.
I did however manage to do two more pages which I hope to share later in the week with you all.
These next five cards are my contribution to a card swap I am involved in. My dear lovely friend Helen, her sister Elisabeth & Belinda (Elisabeth's friend) have been swapping cards for a few months now. The rules are very simple you make five cards for each person in the group (plus a set for yourself if you want). The five cards are the same for each member of the group. I have been meaning to share some of my cards that I had made for the group swap but unfortunately I keep forgeting to take pictures
These first two cards where made from the same papers (that I just "had" to buy). I really thought this sweet girl looked right at home on these papers. I got her as a freebie from the Tiddly Inks Digitals group over on the Papercraft Planet site.
This cute whale also came from the Tiddly Inks group. I have been hoping to play along with their challenges as well, but as usual time seems to get the better of me. The card is based on a sketch that was part of this Caardvark challenge a little while ago as well. I don't know why but when I saw the sketch I imediately thought of this cute whale. Looking at the card now I think if I was to do it again I'd swap the red circle for blue & make the fish red. Not that it really matters I guess.
This Owl card I made because Helen gave me some chipboard moons. I was orginally going to have the owl sitting on his branch off to one side but thought that he looked more interesting on the moon. Then I added the cat since the ribbon looks sort of like a fence to me (it's the same ribbon I used on Linda's cards here scroll down to see the pictures).
This last card is one of my favourites & really is a fluke! I used versamark ink & one of my Hero Arts BG cling stamps Antique Brocade, then stamped over it with Versafine Black Onyx & a Darkroom Door deer image & saying. Because I did this on Bazzil the deer was a bit blotchy so I went over him with my black Copic marker. Unfortunately you can't see it here but the brocade stamp shows through the deer & looks really pretty.
Well I guess I have bored you all enough for one post. Thanks for stopping by & have a great week.
