Altenew November Challenge

Image
The card that I'm sharing today is my entry for the Altenew November Challenge....there are three main colours in the inspiration image and I decided to used those for my card...

This is the image and colours provided for this  month's inspiration challenge...

I started by cutting out the front panel of my card from watercolor cardstock and then stamped the leaves randomly using sunkissed dye ink...I splattered some red gold Gansai Tambi starry watercolor on it and once dry,I adhered it to a bright orange card base..
From a separate piece of watercolour cardstock I die cut the layered flowers and a leaf bunch and then stamped the coordinating images from Floral Fantasy stamp set...yes,I know I did it the other way around...ha ha...but that's how it happened and I went with it...I used orange cream and dark chocolate shades for the flowers and sunkissed for the leaf...

I adhered all the leaves and flowers to my card front and used some adhesive foam squares on the top flow…

I Thank My Lucky Stars

I have used Mama Elephant's Shooting Star stamp and dies for today's card...I really like the sentiments in this set...there are about eight of them..and I have also used a whole lot of tiny stars from this set to emboss over the background...

Peace Begins With A Smile

The moodboard for the November Challenge at Scrapbook Boutique was quite inspiring...at first I wanted to make Christmas cards using the moodboard's red and white theme but then other ideas popped up in my head and I went with that instead and have made two cards as my entry for this challenge..

Colourful Clouds And Fairies Birthday Card

Image
I have used quite a few Distress Ink colours for the background of my card but have actually managed keep the images and sentiment in focus and not the background...the cute fairy images are from a stamp set by The Greeting Farm called Little Fairies..

I Simply Adore You - Fancy Flowers

I can't stop making bright and colourful cards as they are my favorites,but every once a while I deliberately restrain myself and set myself a challenge...today,I wanted to see if I could create a card with a grey theme and no colours...I actually made a good enough card and here it is...

I Treasure Your Friendship

Image
I love this quote by H.J.Brown - "Remember that most valuable antiques are dear old friends."....and the card I'm sharing today is for a treasured friend...I have used two adorable fairy images from Penny Black stamps for my card....

Hippo Bird-Day

The card I'm sharing today looks like a shaker card and could've easily been made one too but I decided not to add the acetate and see how it turns out...I love these cute hippos from MFT Stamps and I have tried my best to keep the focus on them by not creating a busy background as well as adding some dimension using foam tape....
