I'm so sorry it's been a whole week since I shared anything with you. I will have a few cards to share with you in the coming week so I hope you'll swing by again.
Today's card, well actually two cards, were made for the latest challenge at Less is More. I ran out of time to enter last week's challenge so have made sure I could enter this current one where the theme is 'Non-Traditional Colour Christmas Card'.
Here is my entry...
I bought this stamp set over a year ago and never used it last Christmas so felt it deserved an inking this year. On a panel of white cardstock I stamped the butterfly tree and sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then coloured the butterflies with FlexMarkers. The panel was then popped up on 3D foam.
- Stamps: Personal Impressions - Butterfly Kisses and Christmas Wishes
- Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black
- FlexMarkers: Duck Egg, Sorbet and Tulip Yellow
I would also like to link this card up at the following challenge blogs:
Simply Create Too - Challenge #73 - Shop in your Craft Room (old unused stamp set)
The Crafter's Cafe - Challenge #88 - Things with Wings
Totally Gorjuss - Challenge 260 - Non-traditional Christmas Colours
Addicted to Stamps and More - Challenge #119 - CAS
Now, this second card was actually the one I made first. It's made in exactly the same way but I coloured it with ProMarkers in Ocean Teal, Pastel Green and Cloud Blue.
I was going to enter this one but Less is More state that no green would be allowed for the challenge. Although these are teal, aqua and blue I thought I'd make another to be sure it qualified. But, if I had to choose a fave I think this one would win, mainly because teal is one of my favourite colours. Which would win your vote?
On a separate note...
Those of you that follow my blog regularly may have noticed I have recently changed my photograph watermark. In the past I've made my own with a bit of a struggle as I only have the option of free online editing at the moment. The watermark I am currently using was created by the super-talented and lovely Kylie Purtell, who also happens to be my 'boss' at Addicted to Stamps and More.
Watermarks are such a good idea as I know a couple of people who have had their photographs 'stolen' and then gained recognition for work that isn't their own. For a small fee Kylie will happily create a bespoke watermark for you. Here are her details...
That's all for now folks, Happy Sunday!
