Born To Be Wild Birthday Card

Born to Be Wild

A friend asked if I could make a card for a special friend for her 50th birthday and if it could have a motorbike theme and this is the result. The stamp is from Whimsy stamps and is part of their KennyK Collection but is no longer available. KennyK has their own on-line store but you need to be quick as they are closing at the end of this month. I coloured the image with copics, then layered it onto PP from a Kaiser 61/2 x 61/2 pad called Attitude. Before adhering it to a grey card base I wrapped twine around with an attached bike charm, then added some gears and cogs. The sentiment is a digi from Just Ink Lined.

Outlawz Progressive Freebie Challenge

Happy Birthday

Quick post as I am just about out of time for this challenge. Coloured this cute image from Di's Digis with zig clean colour markers and kept it clean and simple. The sentiment is from a Winnie and Walter set called The Big, the bold and the Happy.

Gerda Steiner Monthly Digi Challenge

Girl With Flowers

It's been a month since I last posted as my poor old computer decided to throw a tantrum and I am going to have to buy a new one. My daughters partner managed to calm the beast but as it's 12 years old says it's time to upgrade. I actually enjoyed not having it after the first week as I read, crocheted and got over the withdrawal symptoms. Just in time now to add my challenge card. I broke out my Zig clean colour markers and had a play. Forgot to write down the one's I used but had fun and will try them again. Cut the image out with a My Favourite things rectangle die but mounted the frame for dimension over a scrap piece of PP. This was then adhered to a white card base. Added glossy accents to the flowers and headband then some black dots to her dress.

Gerda Steiner Monthly digi Challenge.


Nearly forgot to post this months card challenge at Gerda Steiner Designs. The freebie was this cute Pen Pal Bear and since I didn't get the last one in on time making sure this one makes it. I have no one to blame but myself as I leave everything to the last minute. I used copics to colour the bear and then stamped the sentiments from an old Hero Arts set called Thanks for being my Friend onto a scrap piece of white paper in black and red ink. It is no longer available which is a shame as it a lovely set and is a favourite of mine. I punched the top with a SU punch then adhered it to the card base over the PP scraps.  The bear was mounted in the corner with dimensional tape and I added some hearts that I die cut from a really old cuttlebug die. I think it was one of the first I bought when I got my cuttlebug but I can't part with them. Just being sentimental I think as it doesn't get much use. Added some glossy accents to the hearts and the bears nose to finish them off.

ACTStamp Artists Card Challenge.

Happy Birthday Humans

I had so much fun playing with my distress oxide inks making galaxy backgrounds for my ATC this month I had to use some to make a card for the card challenge as well. I used the same stampsets from Gerda Steiner designs and I really love the way this birthday card turned out. Coloured the cute little aliens in bright colours with my copics after I masked the centre one then fussy cut them out.  I needed something to ground them so drew the planet freehand, coloured it and adhered it to the bottom of the galaxy panel.  Attached the birthday banner to the green alien with cord and then attached them both with mounting tape to the panel. This was then fixed to a black card base. The  sentiment and banner are also from the alien invasion set.

Green Alien: YG05,07,09.
Pink Alien: RV02,04,06,V000,06,12.
Orange Alien: Y00,YR15,18.

ACTSA 1-4-1 Artist Trading Card Swap

Hello World 

Space ATC 

It's that time again and I am early with this months Atc. Normally I am finishing it off on Saturday morning for the afternoon meeting. The topic this month was space and I enjoyed making the galaxy background with distress and oxide inks. Have seen so many on the web etc, but never got around to trying one. The little spaceman and the earth are from Gerda Steiner designs blast off and alien invasion stamps sets, coloured with copics and cut out. The sentiment was computer generated. adhered using mounting tape as was the spaceman. The earth I just used flat tape to adhere so it looks like it is in the background.

Hair: E53,55,57.
Spacesuit: C0,1,3,5,7,BG02,R35.
Earth; BG01,05,G14,17.

Outlawz Monthly Progressive Freebie Challenge

Spread Your Wings.

This month the Image is designed by Mary Smith for Createful Heart Digis and on the Progressive  Freebie team. It is a lovely image and great to colour. I did have to Google hummingbirds as I had no idea what colours they where and there are a lot. I printed two, coloured one with my copics and just the bird on the second image. Used a Spellbinders circle die to cut it out and then placed a die from Kaiser called circle vines over the top and trimmed it to fit. I made sure the bud and the bird tail were not cut cut so they could hang over the die to give it some dimension. Added the second bird with mounting tape after I fussy cut it out, fixed to a purple card base
and a nice clean and simple card to add to my stash.
