“Lovey Dovey” at FSC

This fortnight we are all in LOVE!!!
That’s right, we have the lovey-dovey thing going on at FSC.
This is open to animals in pairs, first love, bridal and romance…
whatever you interpret lovey dovey stuff to be.
For this challenge I have decided on a bridal card.
The idea that I had was to have a plain-ish style 
but with some technique involved.
I think that wedding cards should be stylish and not over-done, but that’s me…kind of classic (ummm, the card that is, not me lol)
For this card, the top layer is all in one layer.
Some of you may have heard of the ‘out-of-the-box’ technique,
well, this card is kind of the reverse 
so I’m calling it the ‘in-the-box’ technique.
It uses a heart die behind which I have put some card that has been coloured with re-inkers (Wendy Vecchi style).
On the front I have stamped, coloured with Distress Inks and used stencils and negative stencilling (is that a technique???)
And, of course, there’s a little doodling to finish it off!
The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different versions on the theme this time.
Please pop on over and check out the awesomeness of the fashionettes,
 be inspired and maybe join in the fun.
Flonzcraft are our sponsors this fortnight and have a generous $20 gift voucher up for grabs,
there are spotlights and a top 3 as well.

Stamping must be the focal point on your project!

I hope you like my card.

“Love is in the Air”

Love is in the Air!
and I am feeling all romantic…
The animal in this is a wombat…which is an Australian native animal.  And the stamp is from Kaszazz.
All the rest is doodling.
This is quite a simple CAS card…but you know, sometimes,
 ‘simple’ is simply beautiful.
To all the romantics around the world I hope you have an amazing Valentine’s Day!
Enjoy!
I would like to enter this into the following challenges…

FSC “Blank and White with a Hint of Red”

‘Black and White with a Hint of Red’
is the new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges this fortnight.
If you are into Valentine’s Day cards, this one is ideal
– and if not, then you can still join in….
you can pretty much make any project you like as long as it is black and white with just a hint of red 
(not too much red though, the black and white need to be the dominant colours in this challenge).
I thought that I would make a Valentine’s card for a friend of mine
for this challenge.
He makes me laugh a lot with the weirdest jokes 
so I thought of using Charlie for this one.
I have had the TH heart stencil forever, and this is the first time that I have used it.  
It was interesting that I could achieve an ombre effect through the stencil by just adding a little more ink here and there.
And seeing as I have now learnt to use my cropodile
well…I couldn’t resist using it to add a little more red to the card…just a hint though.
And a little doodling to finish it off, just because I really enjoy it.
I hope you like my card.

“Celebrate the Sun”

“Celebrate the Sun”
is a card that that I have made just for fun!
Part of the fun was with a brayer yesterday…
and it was crying out for a silhouette!
Winter is coming to and end….slowly!
and thoughts of Summer are starting to enter my head (bring it on!!!)  
o.k. so we have Spring first, but at least it wont be so cold.
Isn’t it funny how whatever season we are in our thoughts often go to another one?
The background is made using Wendy’s Archival colours
and brayered lavishly.
Then these gorgeous Art Journey stamps 
just seemed so ‘right’ for the background.
Enjoy!

I am entering this into the Art Journey “Sun” challenge.

“Circles”

“Circles”
is the new theme this fortnight at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.
We especially need to see that the stamping 
is the focal point on the project 
and that this must follow the format of the theme.
The globe, clocks, spotlighting and stencils
are just a few things that come to mind…
I’ve been quite taken with the Dina Wakely faces lately
so I decided to use one for this challenge…and add circles into the background for a bit of fun.
Loads of depth has been built up with the wrinkle-free technique and  using a circle stencil in the background.
Then stamping with lids of different sizes seemed to be a nice way to bring the circles forward.
There is even a little journalling of circles to accentuate the lines around the words. 
These lines are made using an old credit card…very handy!
