Hello crafty friends!
Happy August!Unbelievable right?!It’s the last month of the summer already!!!Where did the time go?Does anyone else feel that this year is going too fast???
Anyway…as you may have guessed it, it is time for yet another Crafty Girls Corner challenge and the theme is super easy again : TROPICAL COLOURS! Fits the summer mood perfectly,don’t you think?!
And for this challenge our amazing sponsors are:
Prize: 3 Digital Images
Prize: 2 Digital Images
Prize ~ 5 Digital images
This time I created a card using Birthday Cocktail by SheepSki Designs. Such a perfect digi for hot days like these! (It’s been unusually hot lately here in the UK!) I coloured my image using Inktense Percils. Then I die cut this and another panel using unbranded oval-shaped dies. I coloured the second panel pink using Distress Oxides. For the background I lined up on my stamping platform a few sentiments from Newton’s Nook- Cocktail Mixer stamp set and stamped it several times using Hero Arts Inks in various colours. My intention was to create a happy, colourful background to add some interest to my card but also make the main image pop. The main sentiment is from the “All Occasion Sentiments” stamp set by MFT. (Honestly this is one of my most used sets, sooo versatile!) Then because I was feeling that there was something missing from my card, I added a flower from Altenew – Garden Treasure stamp set which I coloured using Prima Marketing Confections Watercolours (Tropicals). Obviously you don’t need so many different mediums for this card…but I like playing with different supplies since I have them (they are no good in the drawers,you know!). Hope you like the outcome and you feel motivated to use all these supplies you always wish to use but never do! 🙂
