Best Gifts

We're talking stitching at As You Like It Challenge this time, and although I really love real stitching on cards, it's so much simpler and neater to use stitched dies to apply a bit of texture and interest. I've opted for a curved and straight stitched die edging for my image panel although looking through my dies, a large proportion of them are stitched to some degree!  This card was made for my "bestest buddy", but she's received it now so it's safe to share.




Water-coloured on Langton Watercolour paper with Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers:

  • Hair: Antique Linen, Scattered Straw, Brushed Corduroy 
  • Skin: Tattered Rose, Tea Dye, Worn Lipstick
  • Greens: Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss
  • Sky: Tumbled Glass
  • Oranges: Fossilised Amber, Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge

Sunday Papers

I've had a lovely relaxing weekend including colouring up some soon-to-be-released new Vintage Boy images from Lili of the Valley.  I'll share a few with you over the next few days, starting with today's, which is called Sunday Papers.  I find masculine cards much harder to get excited about, but these cute little laddies make it much easier to get motivated to have an inky session!  I've created a little set which I'll share over the next few days to build up a stock of cards I can give to the men in my life!



Water-coloured on Langton Watercolour paper with Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers:

  • Hair: Gathered Twigs 
  • Skin: Tattered Rose, Tea Dye, Worn Lipstick
  • Grass: Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss

Ugly Jumper

We're asking whether you prefer CAS (Clean & Simple) or FAF (fussy and fancy) at As You Like It today. I used to be a full on FAF crafter, but I am definitely a CAS convert!  After I've spent ages colouring an image I don't want to overload it with embellies.  Plus it's easier to mail!  :0)




Water-coloured on Langton Watercolour paper with Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers:

  • Fur: Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose
  • Jumper: Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss
  • Sky: Tumbled Glass
  • Hat: Candied Apple, Barn Door, Aged Mahogany, Pumice Stone
  • Ground: Frayed Burlap

Foxy Birthday

I've created a little scene using 3 stamp sets and some masking for my Father-in-Law's birthday.  He has done quite a lot of travelling in the past, so I designed the card to resemble a postcard by adding a few drawn lines and an intentionally wonky doodled postage stamp! (I'm usually soooo obsessive about lining things up straight, so I was actually quite proud that I wasn't twitching to straighten it!).  The 'price' and sentiment were typed (font: "Beneath Your Beautiful Chunk").  I realised afterwards that I should have used his age as the postage price, but I'd finished it by the time that light bulb switched on in my brain!  I'll remember that for next time (when I might just have to straighten up that postage stamp!!)

The card incorporates two stamp sets (fox and scenery) on the main image and a smaller fox from yet another set for the postage stamp.  I masked around the outside postage stamp square using post-it notes so that the fox only appears inside it. 


Water-coloured on Langton Watercolour paper with Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers:

  • Foxes: Antique Linen, Tea Dye, Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose
  • Greens: Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint
  • Sky: Tumbled Glass
  • Present: Stormy Sky, Candied Apple, Barn Door, Aged Mahogany
