Hello

I've opted for a fully loaded feminine card today in contrast to my recent flurry of CAS 'masculine' creations.  This one's been nobbled by hubby to give to his mum as a Mother's day card so I hope she likes it.  

It's also a change from my usual top (tent) fold cards because it has a decorated stand which holds the main card base.  I've also used one of my favourite Crealies double stitched circle nesting dies; they're such a fabulous size and this isn't even the biggest one in the set!




Water-coloured on Langton Watercolour paper with Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers:
  • Hair: Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo, Gathered Twigs 
  • Skin: Tattered Rose, Tea Dye, Worn Lipstick
  • Grass: Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss
  • Sky: Tumbled Glass
  • Dress: Pumice Stone
  • Flowers: Worn Lipstick, Fired Brick, Aged Mahogany

Special birthday

This is the card I've made for my uncle's birthday next week.  He and my aunt are keen campers so this image is perfect for him.  I added some doodled stitching around the numbers for some added interest and also added a hand-drawn suitcase on the roof-rack because I didn't want to fussy cut the bars of the roof-rack!

80th Birthday

It's my uncle's 80th birthday next week and my aunt asked me to make him a card for her to give to him.  I really struggle with masculine cards so I hope this is special enough. It's a design I've used before but I've personalised it with both his name and age to make it a little bit more special.

  • Hair: Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy 
  • Skin: Tattered Rose, Tea Dye, Worn Lipstick
  • Overalls: Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss
  • Steps, hat, shirt: Frayed Burlap, Walnut Stain
  • Paint: Fired Brick, Aged Mahogany
  • Ground, brush: Hickory Smoke, Black Soot

Birthday Bunny

We want to know what your go-to colouring medium is at As You Like It Challenge this week. It's fairly safe to say that mine is watercolouring with my DI reinkers. I like not only how they look, but also the process of the watercolouring with the paintbrush and I take my time over it. Some of them can take me quite a while, but it's something I do for pleasure, not a race.


Water-coloured on Langton Watercolour paper with Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers:
  • Fur: Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo, Gathered Twigs, Tattered Rose, Tea Dye
  • Grass: Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss
  • Sky: Tumbled Glass
  • Butterfly: Milled Lavender, Wilted Violet, Victorian Velvet
  • Daffodil: Fossilized Amber, Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge

Bunny with Daffodils

We want to know your favourite dies or stencils today at As You Like It Challenge.  I really love my stitched dies because of the texture and interest, and in particular the circles. These XXL dies from Crealies are fabulous because they're such a great size (and this isn't even the largest in the set).
