I made two cards for this challenge. Both Skating themes, both totally different.

Card 1: For my first card I used an adorable image from Bugaboo Stamps, called “Winbird Skate”. I coloured him with my Copic markers and layered him on red and black card stock. For some added fun, I used red Stickles for snowflakes and the heart tattoo on his rump. The sentiment is by Whimsy Stamps, called “Merry and Bright Digital Sentiments“. There are 11 fun sentiments and 4 Christmas stamps.

Next I fussy cut them out and put aside. Next using scraps of card stock, I made a snowy background, complete with frozen lake. I arranged my little critters and for the final detail added clear Stickles. The sentiment is by Whimsy Stamps, called “Merry and Bright Digital Sentiments“.

GUEST DESIGNER at Outlawz -Twisted Thursday – With a Twist – Stars – June 1st

Hello everyone. I was invited to be a guest designer for the month of June by the DT team at Outlawz. You can join for free!

The Outlawz Challenges

I made two cards to mark the challenge. I started with making the galaxy background. I used Kuretake Gansai Tambi 24 watercolors. After taping my watercolour paper to a board, using a wide brush, I applied clear water to the paper. Next I randomly added various bright colours: yellow, orange, red, blue, purple. Once they dried I coloured the background with dark blue and black leaving small bits of the bright colours to show through. I let dry again. For the final touch I splattered white over the background to create stars. I set aside to dry.

Card 1

For my first card, I did a space theme. I used Hambo‘s digi stamp, Space Boy Set. I coloured him with Copic marks and fussy cut him and the planets out. Next I glued them on the background. I added mini die cut stars from SSS. I mounted the background on black card stock. The final step was adding a sentiment by Whimsy Stamps called, “Vintage Sentiments – Digital Sentiments.”
