Cardz 4 Guyz - CAS

Hello again.  This week's challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz is CAS.  I've used this great lighthouse stamp by Stamposaurus, which I coloured with Polychromos pencils.  I layered onto navy blue card and added a stamped sentiment.

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

Starting Early

Hi everyone.  I've started early (VERY early) with my Christmas cards this year.  This one was made using an Image by Power Poppy which was one of the Kit and Clowder pencil classes.  I coloured it using Prismacolor pencils.

I cut around my image then layered it onto patterned papers.  I added a wooden embellishment, the Happy Christmas sentiment and some red gems.

I would like to enter my card in the Sparkles Christmas Challenge.

I hope you like it!

Cardz 4 Guyz - Wild Animals

Good morning!  It's time for a new challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz, and this week's theme is wild animals.  I took the opportunity to use one of my favourite stamps.  I love this gorilla stamp but I've had it for a very long time and can't remember who it's made by.

I stamped two gorillas and coloured them with Prismacolor pencils.   I layered them onto patterned papers and added some die cut leaves. 

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

The Alphabet Challenge - W is for Wings

Good morning.  The letter for this week's Alphabet Challenge is W, and theme that has been chosen is Wings.

I decided to use two of my Tim Holtz Crazy Birds stamps for this one.  I coloured them with Promarkers.  I don't use my Promarkers much any more since they stopped making the ultra fine nibs.  I love my pencils too much too, I think.

I created the background using a Gelli Plate.  This was one of my Christmas presents and is a lot of fun.  You will probably see a lote more Gelli Plate backgrounds on my blog in the not too distant future!

I hope you can join in this week's Alphabet Challenge.
