Luis was busy working in the yard today so after taking Atticus for a walk I snuck into the Craft Cave for a few hours. I used to always listen to a live stream of BBC Radio 1 while I worked on cards but they've recently changed something in their streaming that means I can't get it on any Mac products. So annoying! I dug out my mom's Chromebook and got it to work on there but the battery died within minutes and the charger is nowhere to be found. *Sigh* Thankfully I have lots of different podcasts saved up so I started listening to Serial. Has anyone else listened to it? I'd love to know what you think…
Anyway once I had the background noise sorted out I got to work and made 5 cards for a number of different challenges. I'm going to share two of them tonight. The first is for Lesley Croghan's The Challenge. I used both the colours and the sketch and lots of yummy My Mind's Eye papers.
Cardstock: (White) Bazzill, (Basic Grey) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper: (Reunion 6x6) My Mind's Eye
Stamps: (Sentiment from CL340) Hero Arts
Inks: (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Dies: (Meadow Bird) Memory Box, (Scribble Flower) Papertrey Ink, (Flag Tags) Paper Smooches
The second card is for the PS Sparks Picture Perfect challenge. I was inspired by the colours in the photo - smokey blue, lime green and grey. I went pretty clean and simple with this card in contrast to the one above and I also used those zig zags for the first time. It's always good to give some love to an NBUS product! Okay that's it for me this evening. Luis and Atticus are crashed out on the sofa snoring their heads off. Time to go and tuck them both into bed I think! Hope you have a lovely evening!
