The Outlawz Progressive Monthly Challenge


My daughter has moved back home to Canberra so I am surprised I have my card finished early. It's been a busy month but so nice to have her close again. This month the image is this an a adorable cat image from Anne Fenton. Anne's Digital Art. It was a joy to colour and I had to make it a birthday card for my cat loving friend. Coloured it with my copics then cut it out with a plain spellbinder circle die. Thought it needed more so cut a scalloped die for some contrast, also from spellbinders.  Used a PP from Kaiser pad Something Blue to the black card base then adhered the cat.The celebrate and words are from Avery Elle and are matching dies and stamps called sentimental. I used the celebrate die, white embossed the words then placed them around the image.

Actsa Monthly ATC 1-4-1 Swap

The Journey

Have been so busy with my daughters move back to Canberra that I just haven't had time to post on the blog. I did get some cards and my ATC done here is the ATC. Last month the topic for the monthly ATC was Geography so the theme was wide open. Maps and compasses, travel theme, landscapes images so there was plenty to choose from. I choose a Darkroom door world map background stamp and used the Australian portion for the background that I coloured using distress inks. Stamped the sentiment from the Tim Holtz discontinued Journey set and the postal stamp (unknown) directly onto the background. Stamped the aeroplane (Urban Crafter) and suitcases (Tiddly inks) on scrap card, coloured with Zig markers and fussy cut them out and mounted them with dimensional tape.

Outlawz Progressive Monthly Challenge

Swimming by to say Hi

Hopefully next month I will not be rushing but I say that most months so who knows. Managed to get another monthly challenge done and this one was so much fun. I love zentangles and I hope Jean
 doesn't mind that I added some more tangles to the image. Coloured it with my Zig markers, mounted it to a piece of blue card then unto a pale blue card base. The sentiment was computer generated. 

Gerda Steiner Monthly Challenge

Calories don't Count

I cant believe it's been a month since I last posted on my blog. Life just seems to get in the way of crafting at the moment but I really don't mind as my youngest is moving back to the ACT after being away for 10 years. It's not like we didn't see her as it was only 4 hrs away but now it will be 30 mts. Spent most of the month helping her sell the house and packing etc. so this my first card this month and just in time for the challenge. Kept it simple and used one of my favourite sentiments (wish it was true) for a quick card. Coloured the image with my Zig markers, mounted it on an old off-cut of blue Colour-core Card stock then onto an off white card base.

Gerda Steiner Monthly Digi Challenge

Strawberry Mouse

I never get tired of colouring these fabulous images from Gerda Steiner Designs and this one is so cute. I wanted the image to shine so I cut it out with a zig zag stitched die from MFT, mounted it to white card then adhered it to red PP from Rosie's Studio basics pad then added 
 some green ribbon to contrast the paper. The sentiment is from Doodle Pantry.

Mouse: W00.
Strawberries: Y17,R02,08,59,YG17,G29.

The Outlawz Freebie Progressive Challenge

Paws-itively Fabulous

Have not been doing to much craft lately but have managed to do my monthly challenges. This card is for the progressive outlaws challenge and this month the image is from Anne Fenton and I had fun colouring this adorable dog. I coloured it with copics and used a MFT pierced oval die to cut it out  then used mounting tape to adhere it onto PP from the Kaiser 61/2 in pad called Hello Today. This was then adhered to blue card, twine added and then onto a cream card base. The sentiment is an old digi one but I don't know who from. 

Dog: E0000,000,11,13,18,27 & Sepia Copic Multiliner.
Ball: N1,3.
Sky: BG0000,000.

The Outlawz Freebie Progressive Challenge

You Got This

This months freebie is this very elegant image called My Fair Lady by Sheepski Designs and I wanted to keep it clean and simple. I decided to go with a basic colour scheme, white dress with just two contrasting colours and am happy with the way it turned out. The sentiment is from the set The New Pretty by The Ton. Added two strips of black CS then two strips of red PP from Kaiser 6 1/2 in pad called Looking Glass before adhering to a black card base. A touch of clear Wink of Stella on the red to finish off.

Dress: N1,3,5,R24,46.
Hat: N5,7,9,R24,37,46.
Shadow: C0.
