A challenge overload

Well I decided to get back into some challenges  and had a good go at it so here is a card which I am going to enter into 4 challenges.

ESS Sketch #100, Glitterbabes, Docrafts - colour challenge, Southern Girls (int)

I managed to download this freebie from the Glitterbabes site and was actually able to use it without it being mega big.   I just don’t seem to have much luck with digis so don’t often use them.  I needed to use a palette of colours , one of which fitted into the Docrafts Colour challenge set by Buzz.  Eat, Sleep, Stamp had a sketch to follow and Southern Girls had a challenge of anything goes.   So it all fitted nicely together.  Recipe as follows – White card on which I sat a piece of red card and two separate pieces of purple/amethyst card and a piece of gold ribbon.  The free digi is coloured with marvy pen and I have used glossy accents on the gold bits and some purple stickles to make the swirly bits.   I spritzed some cosmic shimmer Mallow blush over the top of it all but it didn’t quite work out the way I wanted.   There are gems and shiny bits from my stash.   The sentiment was attached to the digi and is something I wish I could use with out the cosmetic brush,

This second card is for 2 challenges.   It would fit into another two really but I ‘m not sure the card ticks the romantic or cute boxes so I will forget those two this time.  No Time to Stamp wanted Guy Cards and Paper Play asked for Autumn Colours.   As most of the men in my life aren’t into sport this leafy card would fit my idea of a Guy Card .

stamp simply #156 and Paper Play

I cut two sizes of paper from some bronze card and some hand-made green paper using ny nesties, then stamped my Dotty Leaf by Funstamps three times.   I inked it up using different combinations of Marvys to make them all slightly different. Hand wrote the greeting and tied string around the four green square to finish.

Hope you like today s efforts.

Happy Crafting
