Crafty Cardmakers Challenge # 194 Under the Sea or At the Beach


Crafty Cardmakers Challenge # 194  Under the Sea or At the Beach

Time for another fabulous challenge at Crafty Cardmakers.   Judy is hosting the challenge  this fortnight and the theme is either 'Under the Sea' or 'At the Beach'.  Anything you care to enter is fine, a card, a scrap layout, a mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it matches one of the theme's .   Looking forward to seeing your makes!

 I choose 'At the Beach' using a Mo Manning digital image titled  'gloria'. The cardstock is from Stampin' Up, and the designer paper is from a DCWV paper stack called Razzel Dazzle (see here for a previous card using this paper pack). The image was coloured with Prismacolor markers and the skin tones with Copics. The flowers are from my stash and the leafy die cut is from a Cherry Lynn die.

Outlawz July 2017 Challenge - 'Dog' by Anne Fenton.

Outlawz Progressive Challenge July 2017
Outlawz Progressive Challenge -  July 2017   -Dog card
The image for the month of July is  Dog by Anne Fenton.

The design is from Bugaboo's Stella Says Sketch challenge #512 for July.
I coloured the dog with Prismacolor Markers and gave him a slightly clouded sky and   muddy ground. He just looked liked he would be be one of those  dogs that cannot resist a mud puddle. My card needed a bit of colour so colored the ball green  and the woof sentiment  was die cut from a piece of green scrap paper. The left hand border is from a Recollections paper pad titled 'Vintage Country'. The die cut scalloped type border is from Spellbinders 'Ironwork Accents' die set.

Bugaboo Christmas in July 2017 Day 5 Photo Challenge

Bugaboo  'Catch the Bug' Christmas in July 2017 Challenge  Day 5 Photo Challenge

The inspiration I felt when I saw this photo was to create something that expressed a bit of  how tiresome  winter can be,  the days when  you long for  summer as you watch the snow come down.  I also liked the colours of the umbrella and decided to use them . Hope you see a bit of humour in my interpretation. These little bird's look like they could use some relief from it all :O)! Been there, know the feeling.

Card  Details:
Image: Bugaboo's'Winter Birds on a Limb'
Sentiment: Stampin' Up's rubber stamp set 'Snowflakes'
(Warm Winter Wishes) and a hand typed sentiment at the top of the image frame.
Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug brand
Colour Medium: Prismacolor Markers

Enjoy your summer!!  :O)!
