Mum

Just squeezing in another post before I head off for my wee break away!



I would like to enter my card into these challenges:
The Outlawz Wednesday Challenge - Sketch
http://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/wednesday-sketch/forum/topics/wednesday-sketch-challenge-june-21-2017

I have used a paper from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  The image is from Sheepski Designs and coloured with copic markers.  I used some pink cardstock for matting and some bright pink pearlescent paper to cut the flags.  I also added some Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Enjoying A Break

Later this morning, I'm travelling to visit my daughter and will be away for the remainder of the week.  On Friday, I am going to spend the day at a Craft Show - looking forward to it!  Unless I have some internet access, there won't be any posts until I return at the end of the week.

Any Holiday

Do you know we are now closer to Christmas 2017 than 2016?  At least, I enjoy creating christmas cards all year round so I'm under control!  This one I decided to go with a silver and blue colour scheme.

Not that I need the reminder - but I thought it was appropriate for a bookmark!

A Bit Time To Craft - Anything Goes
http://abitmoretimetocraft.blogspot.co.nz/2017/06/a-bit-more-time-to-craft-challenge-46.html

I have used a paper from Lozzy for the background and the paper piecing.  The image is from QKR Stampede.  I paper pieced the swimsuit and glasses and coloured the remainder of the image with copic markers.  I like the effect of the paper piecing of this particular paper on the swimsuit and glasses.  The sentiment is from Eureka Stamps with a little colour added with copic markers.  Matting is green pearlescent paper.  I also added some multi-coloured gems.
