Thank you card using pen work

Hiya,

The July 2017 inspiration at Artastic challenge blog is:

Abstract by Robert Klippel


JULY inspiration is Abstract by Robert Klippel

I chose to make a card.  Here is what I did.

I chose a stencil that I thought I could work with.  Then I picked a number of pens in similar tones.


I got my trusty little CM clips and attached the stencil to white paper and cardboard to hold everything in place.


Then I proceeded to very carefully use my pens to trace along the lines in the stencil. I alternated colours. I used the ruler to hold the stencil still.


I used the paper as a backing paper for my card.  I showed my son and he thought it was a patterned paper so I thin it has been successful. I have also coloured in the thank you stamp.

Thanks for looking.

Luxe gold card with leaf element

I have created another card for this month's Archiscraps challenge. You had to have something moveable or dangling.  I've used another unpaired ear ring on my card to meet the criteria.
It's a very pretty gold leaf.  I have decorated the inside and outside of the card in a very similar way. This card has a luxe look as the base is a shimmery gold cardstock and the other paper I have added has a vintage feel. Paired with gold washi and ribbon I think all of the elements match well.

Card for wedding lovebirds

I have created this card for a wedding. Now someone needs to invite me to theirs. I love weddings. Love is in the air, there's dancing, drinking and eating. What's not to like?


The luxe card and envelope, coupled with lace and ribbon give this card an expensive feel. I have added two gold rings tied in the ribbon to add a special touch.

This card is for Another-freaking-scrappy-challenge. The theme is wedding.

Thanks for looking.

Masculine card

Today I have made a card for a new challenge blog that I have found. It is Cards in Envy.

The challenge for this week is to make a masculine card. I like making these. I have a lot of men in my life and they like my cards.



There are some rules for this blog, no lumpy bumpy and you have to make a card, no tags. I assume a tag on a card is OK.  I've used inking, a border punch and stamping as my techniques.  A muted palette with pops of red.

I'm glad to find a new challenge.  Thanks for looking.

Foxy birthday card

The challenge at Unstampabelles for June is:

#69 To the Men in our Lives TWIST add an animal

To the men in our lives..... TWIST add an animal

Remember, don't use any stamps.

My son Damon turns 20 years old today. I made this card for him. He liked the fox.

He has been studying overseas in Ohio in the United States. (We live in Western Australia). He has been away since New Years Eve last year and he arrived home yesterday. I'm very happy to have him home. He had a great experience.


Let's see what you make. There is a mystery prize on offer this month.
