QKR Stampede - Anything Goes
 http://qkrstampede.blogspot.co.nz/2017/06/qkr-stampede-challenge-246-anything-goes.html


I have used a box that originally contained Hot Chocolate sachets.  I painted the box with gesso and then acrylic paint.  I stencilled a pattern onto the box using Distress Ink - Picket Fence and a Tim Holtz stencil.  I also added some white dots using a white pen to two of the corners.  The image is from QKR Stampede and is coloured with copic markers.  I cut off one of the leaves and then glued it separately to avoid too much white space around the image.

Happy Birthday

After checking the weather forecast yesterday and feeling certain I had enough time to treat the moss outside it rained after 3 hours.  The treatment needs to be on for 4-5 hours before it rains.  So, I guess I'm probably going to have to re-treat it!  It that wasn't enough, my car wouldn't start this morning!  Tomorrow is another day......I'm hoping it is a good one!

I have used a paper and a sentiment from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  The image is from Bugaboo Stamps.  I added colour to both the image and sentiment using copic markers.  I also used some Angelina Fibre in the background and some pre-made flowers although I inked the tips of the petals with copic marker BG11.

Under The Sea

I'm back with one of my two favourite themes for cards - aquatic.  The other one in case you're wondering is Christmas!



I would like to enter my card into these challenges:

I have used a paper from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  The image is from Star Stampz and is coloured with copic markers and Kindy Glitz.  I also used a corrugated paper strip, twine and an oval rhinestone which I thought looked like a water droplet.

Stars

I have a collection of Whimsy Stamps that I haven't used.  So, thought it was about time that I did!
