Twofer Card Challenge-Trees see below for each description:)
Cute Card Thursday-No Patterned Paper
Crafty Creations Challenge-Anything Goes
My anniversary is tomorrow and we will have been together a short 14 years but they are glorious. No Patterned paper here and I rarely use that paper for card making. I missed Color Throwdown again...story of my life. I took these trees and stamped them in brown but not before taking my distress inks and, using a spongy thingy, I swirled the colours down in orange, golden yellow and a darker red to create a vibrant sky. I cut out a moon/sun shape(using a shotglass as the base) and took some more distress inks to create the last shimmer of the sun. I tore up some paper and, once again, used some brown distress ink for the colour of some rolling hills. I stamped the birds in brown and place this on some cream cardstock followed by this rich gold. I used my sizzex and the die cuts to make the letters. I coloured the gold stickers in red to add the final border. I hope my hubby will like it.
Christmas Card Throwdown-Use colours, Orange, Black and Gold
Stamping Sensations-The Great Outdoors
CHNC-Used Anything Goes
So Now Twofer Card Challenge will see that I used the same set of trees but, this time, I used them multiple times to great a scene of serenity amid a beautiful sunset(no forest fire thoughts please even though a warped mind could go there...like mine). I stamped almost everything in brown except for the deer. I had a larger stamp with these deer and I coloured them in a black tombow marker. Once everything was stamped I adhered this to the same gold cardstock as the Anniversary card and finished it in stickers I actually coloured in brown but it looks red here.
The Library Challenge-Forty Whacks
Now on to something completely different. This is a challenge blog I love but keep missing which bums me out. This time the book chosen is about Lizzie Borden who took an axe and gave her mother 40 whacks. When she saw what she had done, she gave her father 41. I took my red distress ink and patted it down on some kraft paper that can be wiped up. I spritzed it with water and placed the whit cardstock on top making sure the red bled down. I took my gal stamp, stamped her in versamark and used my blush perfect pearl colour and dusted it over the clear versamark which brought this image out. I sealed her with some hairspray otherwise the powder comes off in your hands. I tore the paper and dabbed on white on the edges. I drew an axe, coloured it with my tombow markers and fussy cut it out making sure the axe has plenty of blood on it. Finally, I stamped the words and embossed them with black sparkle. This was a fun one to do and made me think of the TV movie about Lizzie Borden starring Elizabeth Montgomery as the legendary axe gal. Here is the book...
Happy anniversary!! Fourteen is a good number to be together :)ReplyDelete
Beautiful warm Autumnal colours, many thanks for joining in with our 'Great Outdoors' theme at Stamping Sensations challenge.ReplyDelete
Your card would also fit the A/G option of our first challenge at https://www.welovechocolatebaroque.uk/, great prizes to be won.
Happy Anniversary to you both its our 27th on Friday...great cards Birgit you have been having fun with your inks...take care xxxReplyDelete
Happy anniversary to you, dear friend! I did the math. 14 years is the equivalent of 100 Hollywood marriages laid end to end.
I admire your cards starting with the ones depicting deer on a wooded hillside, the scene bathed in glorious fall colors. With H-ween approaching, I am excited to see your Forty Whacks card. Did you know that the last words uttered by Lizzy's mom were as follows: "When I urged you to bury the hatchet, I didn't mean in my back!" I loved actress Elizabeth Montgomery and saw that TV movie.
Enjoy your Wednesday and I'll see you tamale, dear friend BB!
Those are vivid!ReplyDelete
