There’s no secret that turquoise is my favourite colour. For my birthday this year I got a gift certificate for stamps at Power Poppy and I bought loads! These sunflowers in a vase is one of them. Isn’t it pretty? I layered it on the side of the panel and printed on a part of it. I think it looks pretty good on the side like this. I used a sentiment stamp from a collaboration set made by Hero Arts and Gina K Design and inked it up with ink from Altenew. The enamel dots are also from Altenew, whereas the cardstock is by MFT Stamps.
On Tuesday, a friend and I decided that we were going to attempt the new MFT Stamps sketch challenge, no matter what it was, when the new one was out. That was yesterday. My card came along pretty nicely. I used some stamps I coloured up a while back and kept the same colour scheme for the rest of the card, using blue, turquoise and lime green Distress Oxide inks. I cut out the coloured panels using dies from MFT Stamps and the stamps are also from them as well, the Happy Hippos and Adorable Elephants sets. I finished the card off with a Norwegian sentiment, which means happy birthday, by Mathia Design (Hobbykunst) and a few enamel dots from Altenew.
This card has been entered into the following challenge:
MFT Stamps – Sketch challenge #490
I’m trying to get quite a few of the images I’ve coloured up for the two(!) colouring challenges that Kathy Raccosin has been hosting on Instagram so far this year onto cards. I think it’s going reasonably well, but the pile is rather large so I reckon I’ll be at it for quite some time! For now I will try to have a blog post every other day. Sometimes I do wonder if I’ll ever get caught up and only have a few finished coloured images laying around…
As usual I’m keeping it simple. I cut a big of a stripy background and layered over my coloured panel. Then I found a chipboard I wanted to use, coloured it up and made a matching sentiment. A bit of coloured card stock for the card base and some enamel dots and voilà! The stamp I’ve used is from Alex Syberia’s Etsy shop and is coloured up with Copic Marker.
There is a new Lili of the Valley release today and it is full of cute little boy stamps! I absolutely love them and the one I will show you first is definitely one of my favourites! As soon as I saw the image I knew how I wanted to the card. Isn’t it great when that happens?
The papers are by Lili of the Valley, butterfly dies by Rayher and my usual lace/ribbon combo along with some Altenew enamel dots and my own sentiments.
