I have combined the Just Magnolia challenge with the Friday sketchers challenge.
The sketch was easy enough to do, but making a card with the theme "hot & spicy" was a bit tricky!! I googled "hot & spicy" and an image came up of chilli's in a circle with the colours ranging from green to yellow to orange to red. That's how I cam up with the colour scheme!
I embossed the panels with 3 different cuttlebug folders to had texture. 6 brads and 3 ribbons have also been added :)
Thanks for popping over!
"Our challenge this week is America's idea :~ Valentine
Well it's coming to that time of year again where we show our loved ones how much we care and if thet're lucky they might get a card.......lol.
Please feel free to make whatever you wish using the Valentine theme."
I don't do valentine's day!! Lol! So this is the only card that will be made for this occasion :)
The House Mouse stamp was a bargain from ebay and perfect for this challenge.
I love this stamp!!
Think I best buy another one before I wear this one out!! Good excuse to buy a new one though :D :D
A pretty simple card for me layout wise. I really wanted to show the paper more than anything.
So the totally gorjuss challenge this week was a good one for me. I did want to get so more of the black dots into the coat but I couldn't get more than 1 because of the distance between them! The hat is also cut from the paper as well :) I have stamped the sentiment onto the paper as well. Added a bit of ribbon and come black pearls.
The papers are from a papermania pad with a panel of embossing.
The dragon has been coloured in using promarkers.
I have now added a no.3 to the balloon for the little boy's birthday :)
This is my take on the challenge. I had already coloured the image in with pink and purple so added some paper to go with it. Each of the 4 panels has been embossed with either swirls or hearts. A flower, sentiment and heart pearls I have added for extra detail.
Trust me when I say it took ages because it actually did! The colours are pretty muted for me as well to be honest so this was like a double challenge!
This is the first one I did this morning...
Whiff of Joy have posted there challenge for this week :
"This weeks challenge is a colour challenge. We would like to see you use the colours Aqua and Red!! These colours look beautiful together"
So this is my take on the challenge....
The paper I have had for ages and never known what to use it on, lucky really because this is the only paper I have that is aqua! lol. Haven't used my whiff of joy stamps either for a while. Added some gems for a bit of bling and a bit a ribbon as well :)
Good Morning.. Hope you all had a great christmas & fab new year too. We are finally back with a new challenge over at My Time ...
