Two Challenges

Hello there!  

After what seems like forever I got to spend some significant time in the craft room over the past couple of days thanks to Cup Match - our 4 day public holiday for the East vs West cricket match.  It took a while to get back in the groove but I ended up with a few cards to share.

First up is for the Muse challenge and the inspiration card from Tristan.  I followed the colour scheme (including the kraft twine colour), used a flower image and kept a clean, white background.  The flower is popped up on foam tape for some dimension.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink
Stamps:  (Flower & leaves from Layered Lily, Splatter from Watercolor Frames, Sentiment from Heartfelt Sentiments) Altenew
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, Evergreen, Sea Breeze, Turquoise, Tide Blue, Starlight, Sand Dunes, Pure Graphite) Altenew
Gems:  Recollections

Next is a card for Freshly Made Sketches.  I'm trying to use more coloured card bases and also patterned paper so here I managed to combine that using Stampin' Up cardstock and some ancient K&Co paper.  The butterfly is MFT and the sentiment is Altenew.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Certainly Celery, Basic Black) Stampin' Up, (Periwinkle) Bazzill
Patterned Paper:  (Que Sera Sera 12x12) K&Co
Stamps:  (Sentiment from Heartfelt Sentiments) Altenew
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Die:  (Butterfly) My Favourite Things, (Stitched Square) Lil' Inker Designs
Markers:  (E33, E35) Copic
Gems:  Recollections

Love the blue flower...a gorgeous CAS card!

Tinstar said...

Jen love how you interpreted my card, great idea with the twine colour behind your flower rather than actual twine.

Two gorgeous cards, Jen! So glad you got time to play in your craft room - it was certainly productive time based on these beauties!
