Colour Create, Lili of the Valley and Friday Sketchers Challenges

Hi to you all. I hope you've had a nice weekend. I haven't had too bad a day considering but I think that's cos I kept myself really busy- it's the best thing, I'm finding! So I've been making some more really quite simple cards for the craft fair I'm doing. This first card is for Colour Create and I adore this new stamp from Whipper Snapper. The theme is to use any 3 of the following colours: strawberry, raspberry, blackberry, kiwi or tangerine. Can you see what colours I used?! I coloured it in using a mixture of Lyra pencils and watercolour pencils. The papers are all Basic Grey and I LOVE the colours of them!

Here is a little close up!

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Whipper Snapper); Lyra pencils; Watercolour pencils; Papers (Basic Grey); Nesties; Sentiment (Craftwork Cards)

And onto Friday Sketchers Challenge. I made 2 really quick cards for this challenge for my stock.

This first card's image is by Lili of the Valley. The papers are by Basic Grey which I think go perfectly with her stripy tail and the colour of her hair! I then thought I'd use my Martha Stewart punch to continue the wave-like theme. Did it work, do you think?

Crafty stash used: Image (Lili of the Valley); Papers (Basic Grey); Assorted cardstock; Zig zag Punch (Martha Stewart); Daisy punch (Woodware); Flower (Poppicrafts); Button (Poppicrafts); Sentiment (Craftwork Cards)

And another card based on the sketch but I moved the sentiment a little. This card also covers the Lili of the Valley Challenge this fortnight which is paper piecing. So the stamp is Lili of the Valley coloured with copics and paper pieced with Papermania paper which I used throughout the card. The buttons are a fav of mine to add a bit of variation and the sentiment is a Papermania sticker.

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Lili of the Valley); Copics; Paper (Papermania); Assorted cardstock; Buttons die (Sizzix); Sticker (Papermania)

Have a great week, thanks for stopping by xxx
