Good morning!  This is a card I made using some stamps by Visible Image.  I was luck enough to win £40.00 to spend on their stamps in last month's challenge in the Visible Image Facebook Group, and these are some of the stamps I chose.

I created the background using Brushos and Distress Inks on bubble wrap.  Then I used acrylic paint which I added using various different size lids (form paint  and glue bottles, pens etc to create the rings.

I stamped the lightbulb onto a separate piece of card and cut it out.  I coloured it with Distress Inks and a Letraset Metallic Marker then added some Glossy Accents over the top.  I  also stamped the moth and cut it out and coloured with with Distress Inks.  Then I stamped the wings in Versamark onto Vellum and embossed them.  I coloured the back of the vellum with Polychromos pencils.  I layered the moth onto the card using foam pads.

I am really enjoying getting back into doing some messy stamping and mixed media stuff.  It's been a while!

Cardsz 4 Galz: Sew and Sew

Good morning.  Today's challenge at Cardz 4 Galz is Sew and Sew.  I didn't have any sewing themed stuff in my craft stash, so I decided to make a card using lots of sewing.  All layers of this card are hand stitched aroudn the edges.

The image I used on this card is by Saturated Canary, and I coloured her with Polychromos Pencils.  I embellished my card with buttons and die cut butterflies.

I hope you can join us for this week's challenge at Cardz 4 Galz.

I hope you can join us this week at Cardz 4 Guyz.

Cardz 4 Guyz: Something Blue

Hello again.  This week's challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz is Something Blue (for Father's Day).

I bought some beautiful Hobby Art cat stamps from the Happy Stampers show at Port Sunlight a few weeks ago, so I decided that the main feature of my card would be a blue cat!  (Well, why not?)

I coloured my image with Polychromos penciles, layered it onto card and patterned paper and added the die cut DAD, some die cut stars and a Happy Father's Day sentiment.

I hope you can join us this week at Cardz 4 Guyz.
