2 x Tulip birthday cards

I have found a new challenge to enter. It is called Daring Cardmakers. I loved the inspiration image.

I decided to make 2 cards. I loved the colour scheme so I chose that, plus pink tulips, black and white ribbon and sheet music.

Create a dynamic page or a subtle one

 Hello friends,

A new month and a new challenge. Archiscraps gives us an interesting one this month.

Create flying buttresses. One immediately thinks cathedral, yes?  Maybe not.  Check out what the other Designers did on the facebook page.

MAY- Flying buttresses.
Use a central picture (layout) or die cut/picture (card) and think of a way to have strips or curves coming out from it.

For me, I wanted something subtle. I chose to use vellum.  Here's my page.

I simply chose a single sheet of white A4 vellum and cut it using one of the cutting wheels on my American Crafts trimmer, (mini waves, like I said, subtle). I had two interesting photos so I used both, but put them in the centre of my page. Makes you focus on the photos, which I like.

Put your thinking caps on.

Add paint to a scrapbook page

 ARTastic has mixed it up this year. They're going with shop windows as inspiration.  I love this theme. I also came up with it, hahaha.

ARTastic challenge for May 2022

I really adore this month's inspiration.  I immediately thought of washi tape. You could use that. It would look great.

When I chose my photo for it though, I changed my medium.  I decided upon paint. There are such beautiful blues in the photo so I got some acrylics and mixed up my own colours. I had a lot of fun doing it.

I needed to add the punches of colour from the rig, orange and yellow. So happy with the outcome.
