I've had some extra time to play this week as I'm on holiday so I've done quite a few challenges so I have a couple to show you today.
Firstly I made a "white" flower for this weeks Make my Monday challenge http://mimchallegeblog.blogspot.co.uk/2012/05/mmm-week-48.html
The literal challenge was Lily of the Valley as it's this months birth flower and all I know about this flower is that it is NOT one of those! I have no idea what it is, or what colour it should be, but I think it looks OK in white so lets go with it ok.... I just did very quick watercolouring with distress inks (bundled sage, forrest moss and peeled paint with a hint of spiced marmelade for the stamens). I did use a tiny bit of bundled sage on the "white" petals to give some subtle shading. I used an embossing folder for the mount and cut it by hand after embossing and finished with a craftwork cards sentiment.
Next I made 2 cards using the great sketch this week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown (I'm loving this challenge and have almost a full shoebox of Christmas cards already and it's not quite half way through the year). http://52cct.blogspot.co.uk/2012/05/sketch-challenge-5.html I made one card with the sketch as is, and a second with it turned on its side.
For this first card I used my favourite Christmas pun stamp "peas on earth" coloured with copics, some paper from My Minds Eye 12 Days of Christmas and a fab greeting one of my local stores got made up so we can do localised greetings.
For this one, I turned the sketch sideways, used an old Magenta framed stocking stamp, stamped twice and paper-pieced the second layer of stockings in pink cardstock coloured with pencils to match the paper (same MME stack) and finished with a No Peeking sentiment from Waltzingmouse.
Right - off to get some jobs done. Catch you later.
