Morning Peeps, it's Saturday so that means it's time for our new challenge at Allsorts and this week Wendy would like us to use 'Blue and Brown' on our creations. Our sponsor is DigiStamp Boutique.
My thanks for all you warm wishes over the last week, I am feeling much better than I did and had a very positive meeting with my new consultant. I do need surgery on the mal formed kidney but she does not believe it is quite as acute as the previous guy said and is hopeful the procedure need not be as invasive as he suggested. I am so pleased I stuck my neck out for the second opinion and didn't agree to the immediate surgery he wanted to do so currently waiting for the date to come through.
It's a colour palette I really love working with so two cards from me. The one at the top uses one of the images from.....there are four in the set.......Sketchy Flowers from this weeks sponsor Digistamp Boutique. I printed onto some brown DP using the image twice and re-sizing one slightly smaller, then stamped in-between (little sister of Stampendous Agapanthus Cluster P107) and added colour with sparkle pens. The sentiment is Penny Black stamped in versafine blue. Some stenciling in the background, ribbon and pearls to finish.
The current Butterfly Challenge is quite a taxing theme of something to represent the Zodiac and/or the colour Buttermilk along with the inclusion of a Butterfly. But not being one to be thwarted I've had my thinking cap on and came up with this, the lady represents Virgo, some buttermilk'ish colours and of course a Butterfly in her hair.
The background is Distress Oxides, then after stamping with versafine black I bleached out some of the background and used pencils to add new colour to the image which is the lovely Summer Fayre from Chocolate Baroque.
This one was a sample for a TL Create and Craft TV show a while back, a background created with distress inks and some honeycomb stenciling, a TL sentiment onto an oval die and the bottom border another die, coloured with same inks and the edges embossed with detail copper embossing powder. Finally a rather indulgent OTT spray of flowers. It was actually quite a quick make as unusually for me there is no stamping.
I do hope you will join in the fun this week and also pop over to the awesome inspiration from my teamies.
