About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.
Unfortunately because of spammers I have had to put moderation on the comments. I will approve them as soon as possible, this also means I don't miss any.

Outlawz Tuesday colour challenge

This is my second guest designer card for April Outlawz Tuesday colour challenge

The challenge for this fortnight is

3 colours and a twist

Blue, green and yellow with die cuts.  I used Beccys free silhouette digi stamp which I recoloured green.    The embossed yellow card is a bright yellow but the scanner didn't scan it correctly.  The background behind the stamp and yellow circle is blue and green inks onto block and spritzed with water then the card placed over it.   I added dragonfly and buttons die cuts.

I hope you will go over and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.

I would also like to add my card to the following

Fantastic colour combination GranMargaret, it reminds me of a beautiful spring day in the garden. I love the embellishments you added, particularly the dragonfly... great idea to make it transparent. I also like the deckled edge around the image panel. Wonderful!
