The other morning I happened to end up in the chatroom with Tamara & Lyn D (Lead Ambassador Australia). We had a great chat talking about various things, among them how Lyn’s enjoying doodling on cards. Lyn issued Tamara & I a challenge to create a card with doodling on it & email it to her. Well, I’m not a doodler at all but I accepted her challenge anyways. Here’s my card for Lyn’s Doodle Challenge for Tamara & I. I used the High Hopes Love Bandit stamp, colored him with Prismacolor Pencils & Gamsol. I then cut him out & popped him up on dimensionals. I then doodled the black lines around the edge of the card, drew in the hearts & colored them with Soffle Pens. I then hand wrote the title on the card. Thanks for making me get out of my comfort zone & to make me think out of the box Lyn. It was a fun challenge. Here's my "Doodle Card". You can find Lyn here http://fiskarscraft.typepad.com/my_weblog/ or at her personal blog http://www.lynd.typepad.com/.
The next challenge that I decided to do was the House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge. I found this blog a few weeks ago and since I have acquired quite the collection of House Mouse stamps, I’ve decided to put them to good use by doing these weekly challenges. For this weeks challenge #40, it’s Wedding/Anniversary’s. Well since I don’t have any wedding or anniversary House Mouse stamps I decided to use the “Lovely Confetti” image. I colored it with my Copics and punched it out with my Marvy punch and layered it on a Marvy Scalloped Circle. I then added Glossy Accents to the hearts. Then I added a circle stamp, popped it up and layered it with my SU scallop circle. The verse is an old stamp that I have and it’s punched out & layered on a Marvy scalloped rectangle. Check out all the other great challenge cards here http://housemouse-challenge.blogspot.com/.The third challenge that I did was for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge that I’ve recently stumbled across. You can visit the blog here http://pennybfriendssaturdaychallenge.blogspot.com/. This weeks challenge #51 is a sketch. I love the sketch that Domi came up with. I used my Penny Black Love Notes dog image, colored it with my Prismacolor Pencils & Gamsol and cut it out with my Nestabilities. The pattern paper is from a DCWV Mat Pack. I finished it off with Prima flowers & added a brad in the center of each of the flowers. The sentiment is from Inky Antics.Thanks for looking & enjoy your day!
