Cardz 4 Guyz Underwater

Welcome to a new challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz. This week the challenge is "Underwater" chosen by Jane.

I decided to put my little Lawn Fawn fishes in a porthole. I love the sentiment that came in the set too. I fussy cut an extra fish to cover a smudge of ink.

Do go and check out my teamies makes on the challenge blog.

MMM - Birds

Oops! I thought I had scheduled this post to go live this morning but obviously not, and I didn't check yesterday as I usually would. I had rather a lot of family problems on my mind.

Anyway back to the card. Joan has chosen birds as the theme for the new challenge at Make My Monday.

I decided to use the SU set "Hey Chick" as it was waiting to see ink! I coloured the chicks with Spectrum Noir pencils after Stampin on Kraft card.

Do check out the other inspiration on the challenge blog.

CAS Watercolour Love

More watercolouring! This time I stamped the Kanban rose in pink and green then used a water brush and inks to add shading to the Rose. When I'd finished I added a very dilute blue and green to the background.

I had actually made this card prior to me previous post, but when I saw this month's challenge at CAS Watercolour  I added the sentiment so that it fits in with the theme.

Watercolour for Cardz 4 Guyz! C4 Guyz

This week the challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz is "No Patterned Papers" . I was going to go down the CAS route, but changed my mind when I was looking through my box of NBUS stamps for Darnell's recent challenge as I found this unused stamp by Michael Powell.  I bought it and another one at The Make It Show a few years ago, then wasn't sure what to do with them. Recently though I have been watching video tutorials on watercolouring and decided to have a go.

I used Distress markers and followed the colouring on the back of the stamp fairly closely. I have to say I was really pleased with my first attempt.

Cardz 4 Guyz - Love!

 The challenge this week at Cardz 4 Guyz is " Love"  - very appropriate as it will soon be Valentine's Day! I have used a NBUS stamp from SU. As it is quite a small stamp I mounted it on red and black, bfore adding it to the spotty paper. The square stitched dies are also SU, the "Love" is a small die which I think was another freebie.


Don't forget t0 visit the other DTs to see what they have made.

MMM - Shimmer

The challenge this fortnight at Make My Monday is to use shimmer, shine,glossy paper etc.  In my rather large stash of 6 x 6 papers I found some foiled shiny papers which neede little added to them. I diecut the Happy Birthday in Pink, gold and black, and slightly offset them so they would stand out more against the paper.
The centre is a flower embellishment from my stach simply mounted onto a gold doily. Job done. Don't forget to visit  the other team members to see what they have made.

NBUS and Gelli Plate.

 Well this is the third week of Darnell's extended NBUS challenge. For those of you who don't know what NBUS is, it stands for Never Before Used Stuff! This week the optional extra is to use bubble wrap.

Now I have had a Gelli Plate for over two years now and it has never come out of the box it arrived in!Time to try it out. As it ws the first time I'd has a play and I was running out of time I stuck to a simple use of it, one colour and bubble wrap. I really liked the effect and thought it would make a great background for this Penny Black die, another NBUS.

Something beginning with C

Welcome to a new week at Cardz 4 Guyz, and this week Tina has chosen "Something beginning with C".  My first thought was "cat" but then decided to go with "car" when I found this stamp.

Again it was a magazine freebie! The papers are old SU. Please don't forget to check out all the inspiration from the other DT members.

A Shaped Card at Cardz 4 Guyz

It's 8.55 on Tuesday morning and I've just realised I haven't written up my post for Cardz 4 Guyz for the new challenge. This week it has been chosen by Cyndi, and she has asked for shaped cards.

I hope that this counts as a shaped card as I really couldn't come up with any other bright ideas. The paper and stamp is from an old SSS KIT.
