I'm back to day with some fun cards I made for a couple challenges over at the Greeting Farm: Garden Variety Tuesday: Based on a Sketch and Retro Fresh Friday: Use Autumn Colours. I also incorporated the Challenge over at A Blog Named Hero: Game, Set, Match where you need to make a set of at least 3 cards that co-ordinate like a set. I've never tried that before and I certainly could use some fast and fun cards these next few weeks so it was a win-win!
Here's what oozed out of my grey matter (with a little help from my hands and stuff ;))
These cards were all based off this sketch from Garden Variety Tuesday:
|background stamp and sentiment: Hero Arts, image stamp: The Greeting Farm, Paper: Jilly Bean Soup, Diecut: Spellbinders, Distress Markers.|
|Sentiment stamp from Hero Arts, Image stamp from The Greeting Farm, paper: Jilly Bean Soup, Diecut: Spellbinders, Copic Markers|
|sentiment Stamp: Hero Arts; paper: Jilly Bean Soup, MME; image stamp: The Greeting Farm; flower: Prima; washi tape|
I kept to a fall colour palette for each card. The sentiments are heat embossed on vellum paper and I attemtped to colour the image using various techniques but kept the colour scheme of each image the same (i.e. red coat, green scarf and flower, brown shoes).
The last card I used washi tape to colour her scarf and jacket by taping over the entire part and then using a craft knife to cut out the shape (gently not to cut through the paper beneath!). Since washi is translucent you can still see the image underneath.
I would like to submit this card to the Challenge over at Moxie Fab World: Handmade Cards-Stickers and Tape Challenge.
The "Find Joy" sentiments stamp set from Hero Arts, Spellbinders die and Background "Everything Flower" Hero Arts Stamp are all available at Simon Says Stamp.
I would also like to also submit these cards to the following blog:
