I hope you are enjoying your weekend. Just one week left until half term - thank goodness :)
I don't often get the chance to play along with the fab Muse challenge but I did love Therese's sweet card and wanted to have a go. Here is what I made:
This is a fairly literal take on Therese's scene combining stitched hills die cut from patterned paper and these cute elephants from Hero Arts Lil Hoot set. I coloured them with my new Chameleon Pens - I need a bit more practice but like the shading they give. The sentiment is from SSS.
I will also join up at Addicted to Stamps where the current challenge is to Make Your Mark.
While I was having a play I also made a card with the colour combo over at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge. I used some fun Halloween stamps from Tim Holtz:
The boys really like this cool skull stamp!
Thanks, as always, for stopping by - I really appreciate it :)
I love how you colored the elephants, Sarah! Your shading and blending is beautiful, and your card is a fab take on Therese' Muse card!ReplyDelete
How fun is that skull stamp? Love how you made him the star of the show in the foreground and background...very cool!
I'm so glad you entered your card for this week's challenge at ATSM! We love it when you play along :)
