Outlawz Sunday Cas Challenge

Can I Eat It.

Heading off this weekend to the National Folk Festival for their 50th bash. Just love this event and with 4 days of non stop folk music this old hippie is over the moon. Will post some photos later. But now time to catch up with some challenges. This lovely dragon is Clyde from Bugaboo and he is not coloured green in my favourite go to colours. Need to step out of my comfort zone sometimes and this is the result.. He looks different in blue but I like it. He is for the  Sunday cas challenge at Outlawz and the theme was Goof of day and I think this image fits the bill. Coloured spring Clyde with copics , added some scrap PP from my stash and some twine. Sentiment is computer generated.

Just because I like this image.

Elegant Birthday Card.

Didn't really plan to make a birthday card with this lovely image I found in my to colour box. Not sure how long I have had it or where it came from but she sure is gorgeous. My go to colouring medium was my favourite copics and I love the way she turned out. The contrast of the teal and orange really makes the image pop.  The PP is from Kaiser's 61/2 by 61/2 in Paper pad called Bluebelle and the border die from Martha Stewart. The sentiment is from a Gina K set called Fanciful Tags by Nina Brackett but I think it may be discontinued. A white seam binding ribbon and bow and some Peacock Feathers Distress Ink finishes of the card.

Catching up on my ATC's for this year.

My January and February ATC's

Haven't made it to a meeting this year but did manage to get my ATC's done for the first two months. Love making these cute little 2/12 by 3/12 cards and receiving one in return. The first theme was for pre 1788 Australia and I choose to colour a flowering gum image from Make it crafty. I choose copics to colour the image, distressed the edges with Walnut Stain Distress ink and then mounted the image on dark brown card stock. Didn't add a title so that the flower was the focal point.


Flowers: R05,24,37.
Gumnuts: Y28,W5,7.
Leaves: YG93,94,99.
Background: B12,14.

The February's ATC theme was Medieval- People or Architecture, castles, knights. Now you just had to have a dragon featured there somewhere and this is the result. The castle picture I found on Google, changed the colour to give it a softer look and blended Old Photo and Gathered Twigs Distress inks over it . The dragon image is an old image from Tiddly Inks, coloured with copics and mounted on a die cut branch from Sizzix. Looks like he is guarding the castle.


Dragon: BG93,G21,Y17,23,YR24.

Love you more than Carrots

Gerda Steiner March Challenge

Carrot Bunny

Have not posted for a while but it's been rather hectic the last couple of months. Flew to Bali for a friends 60th and had a lovely 8 days with the girls lazing by the pool and shopping. Home for a few weeks then starting repacking for our Stamping cruise to New Zealand. I think I am addicted to them as this is my 5th and its double the fun. Love to cruise and doing my favourite craft is the icing on the cake. Now time to get back into the swing and my first card is for Gerda's monthly challenge. 
This month the challenge is to use this cute bunny with his carrot. Gerda has the most adorable images and they are such fun to colour. Coloured the image with copics then cut it out with a zig zag stitched oval die from MFT and mounted it onto a 2nd oval cut from paper from Kaiser's Bluebelle 61/2 in pad. Cut two rectangles from the same pad, adhered them to an orange card base and mounted the image with dimensional tape . The sentiment is computer generated and that finished of the card.
