C.R.A.F.T.-Challenge 335-October 29th – Shaped Card


This week our design team challenges you to make a “shaped” card (anything but a square or rectangle). I hand sketched a pumpkin shape, coloured and cut out 2,  attached front and back together, then added the digi stamp called AJ the Pilgrim by The Stamping Boutique. For the digi, I paper pieced most of the turkey and pilgrim. I also used Copic markers. The sentiment is from PI.

Simply Create Too – Challenge 97 – BABY, IT’S COLD OUTSIDE

1 MYRNA DT BADGEChallenge 97 at Simply Create Too invites you to make a card with the theme, “BABY, IT’S COLD OUTSIDE”. I used this wonderful little digi stamp called, On the Lookout by Delicious Doodles. I added minimal colour to the image with my Copic markers, keeping to cool greens/blues. I frame the image with Memory Box – Frostyville border also in the cool tones. I was trying to depict a cold frosty morning. The stamp is from Hero Arts.
