HB card using washi

I have a birthday card for you to see today.

I chose to use washi tape to create the design. Just the black, red and white colours to make it bold. Using salmon accents and a bit of gold complemented these colours well.

Here is my card and you can see the sketch for this month's Stick it Down challenge below.

Thanks for looking.

Selfie Time

August at Unstampabelles

It's all about Me!                     TWIST: use a self portrait - does not need to be a photo

I don't mind a selfie.  I've gotten quite good at them.  I prefer to take them with others usually.

I like leaves a lot, I have them on my home decor (especially my bed linen) and I like to use them on crafting projects too.  I took my inspiration from the wallpaper I was featuring in my selfie. I had gotten some new stickers from Wish (from China). They are lovely but very hard to peel the backing off of.

Thanks for looking.

August Archiscraps' reveal

 Hello scrappy friends,

Here is your challenge for this month at Archi-scraps.

Criteria is : Use concentric archways on your layout or card.

I've made a layout. I've used old stash patterned paper and cut it into an arch shape (also a football shape). It already had concentric arches on it.  A nice, easy way to interpret this challenge.

Have fun creating.

Bee Happy cards for ARTastic August 2021 challenge

I have two cards for you to see today. They are simple but effective.

See the print below for this month's inspiration. The criteria is black and white, plus insects.  

I chose to make two cards using a set that came with a magazine. I used two of the acrylic stamps from this set.

For one card I have used my Creative Memories hexagon punches. The other card has simple stickers from Mrs Grossman that I have had forever.

Materials used:  linocut, black ink on ivory Velin Arches paper
