Tilda's Strawberry Delight

After all that destressing and making my Sympathy card had to do something lighter.
Have made this for 3 challenges
Tuesday Morning Sketches #3 using their fab sketch
Pollycraft Design Blog using the theme food and the sketch flipped
Stampavie and more Their theme is Summer. Well you cant have summer without Strawberries

Used the Strawberry from the summer Magnolia Club stamps. Coloured with my promarkers then glossed with anitias 3d gloss to make it look juicey. Gingham is from a download. Stamp is from a clear set i got in a sale

Sympathy Card

Hate making these as they tend to make me feel so low. This is for a good friend whos Dad sadly left us last week the same day as my great nephew was born. They do say as 1 leave 1 arrives.

Simple card in black and white . Black paper has a white marble effect. Added a touch of glitter to the edge of the nestie. Stamp is from a friend and cant remeber the name as i type.

God rest his soul Jules will be thinking of you Friday.

Creative Inspirations Wednesday Challenge #17

Morning Girls well it is that time again and time to show you my DT Card for this week.

This week on Creative Inspirations Challenge we would like you all to do a bit of Distressing. Something totally out of my comfort zone as i dont own a distressing tool or any ink. Can you tell. Lol.
Any subject any layout just go to town on crinkling , ripping and inking.

I got this stamp a few weeks ago in a sale thought it might come in handy for mens cards as my Dad loves things like this. The stamp is Personal Impression Beryl Peters Collection P1333P

As I said dont own any inks so used my Promarkers to colour the image and the background edged the paper with the same colour. The green paper is Basic Grey and have edged after ripping with my green versacolour ink and rubbing with my finger. Brown paper has a distressed look to it but added a touch of the old sand paper.
Embellishments 2 green buttons from stash, Button Rocking chair, 2 eyelets in a bottle and old camera in the top corner and the clip is from stampin up. Used the remainder of the papers to decorate the inside.

Now what you waiting for pop over to the blog and checkout the rest of the teams cards they are all different and very talented bunch of people. Also checkout who won the fab ribbons. Cant wait to see what you come up with.
