The Outlawz new colour challenge

Good morning everyone,
We have had some lovely winter days this week, not the cold wind chilling ones of the previous week. Makes one want to get out and enjoy the lovely sunny days, with some crochet or knitting to keep you company, but we can't always do what we would like.

I am a day late with my DT card for this week's colour challenge not entirely due to the lovely weather.

 We have a beautiful inspirational photo from Sharon, so there is so much to use for your project this week. The DT have made some fabulous cards to inspire everyone.

Our sponsor this month is Fabrika Fantasy 

Image may contain: 1 person     

I loved the colours from the photo and was inspired to try and make a background for my card.

I used distress inks on watercolour paper and then used an Anne's Paper Art die from Nellie Snellen to cut out the watercoloured shape and a slightly larger yellow one.

Matted these onto a dark blue cardstock.

I stamped a flower image onto the coloured diecut and embossed it with black embossing powder

Finished it off with some pearls



Entering a few challenges:
A bit more time to craft  #68...Anything goes
A perfect time to craft #5 ...Anything goes
The Artistic Stamper. ...Backgrounds
Classic Design Team #25 ...Anything goes
Crafts Galore Encore ...Anything goes

How about some metal this week

Good morning friends and a Happy April,

It does seem hard to believe that we are into April already....time flies when you're having fun!!

This week it was my turn to choose the palette for our Colour challenge at The Outlawz. I used this lovely photo for inspiration and added the twist to use something metallic.

For some inspiration please go and see the cards made by the DT. They are really awesome.


We have a new sponsor this month... Digistamps4Joy with a gift certificate for our winner.








My card was made with an image  daisies which I have had for some time.





I used a green paper from an old paper bloc of Marianne Designs,

The green oval was cut with a die and then embossed

The white oval card is cut with a Nellie Snellen die.

My image was printed and cut out, then mounted under the metal watering can which was cut from a sheet of thin metal using a Memory Box die.
I was so happy to use some of this metal as I forgot that I even had it

The sentiment  was stamped onto a label and mounted with 3D tape.

Pearls to finish

Last colour challenge for March

Hello bloggers,

I have been a little slack in posting the last few weeks, just life happening.
Today I have the last Colour challenge for March at The Outlawz. This week it was Kimberly who chose the picture and colours, but she was clever and left the twist up to each one.

Sheepski Designs has been our sponsor this past month with her lovely images, for which we thank Andrea.

   




 I used 2 shades of blue and the white for my colours and decided to leave the colouring for another week and for my twist decided to go with paper piecing, so added some of the papers that I used for her umbrella, bag and shopping bag. They are all from a  paper block that I have had for some time.
Added a few pearls just for a bit of glamour.


Will be entering a few challenges:

Crafting from the Heart #200...Anything goes
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #78...Anything goes
The Corrosive challenge  #3...Anything goes
Elliebelle's creative Moments... Papercrafter's Linky Party #8
Crafty Friends challenge #80...Anything goes


Thank you so much for visiting. Take care,

Love Ursula

My card was made using the following:




Cardstock from my stash...both the colours have a slight shimmer to them.

I embossed the top layer with a very old Cuttlebug embossing folder.

The cross was made with  an old Nestibilities die. I used ribbon instead of the paper diecut around the cross. Attached with a pearl.

Sentiment was printed on my PC and cut with a Nellie's die.

Added pearls to finish.
