Cardz 4 Guyz: Trees/Leaves

It's time for a new challenge again at Cardz 4 Guyz, and this week's theme is trees and/or leaves.  I decided to use both.

As we're now well into autumn, I decided to create an autumn themed card.  I stamped the bare trees onto patterned paper and then added the leaves using acrylic paints.  I layered the trees onto various patterned papers and added some die cut leaves at the corners.

My card is straight, I promise.  It's my photograph that's wonky.

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

The Alphabet Challenge

Hi everyone.  It's new challenge time today at The Alphabet Challenge.  This month we are up to the letter M, which is for Masculine. 

I decided to make a card for my dad's birthday for this challenge, and used this brilliant image by Dr Digi, which I coloured with Prismacolor pencils.  I layered my card onto patterned papers and added a Happy birthday sentiment. 

I hope you can join us this week at The Alphabet Challenge.

Cardz 4 Guyz: Inspired by the Beatles

Good morning.  It's time for  a new challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz, and this week's challenge is inspired by The Beatles.

I have to admit that I struggle to make cards inspired by music, films or books, it's just not my thing, so I decided to go with a general music theme, but using a brick stencil for the background inspired by the brick background on the back cover of  the Abbey Road album.  I used stencils and ink sprays for the background and then stamped onto it.

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