Penny Black Saturday Challenge Midway Reminder-Favorite Colors- In my Garden




Mid-Way Reminder


Anything Goes

or the optional theme-


'Your Favorite Colors'







I have used the same flower stamp set I used on my last card here. I wanted to get a different look(and a different favorite color).  Actually, my fave color is red, but with fall around the corner-I went with my fave fall colors! I just like color!!! I have used the little sentiment set many times-It's a good one to have on hand!


 In My Garden

and

I chose the Anything Goes option for this challenge-I have so many NEW meecie stamps and I already used the birdie ones. Sooooo...Here we go with Anything Goes-so don't look for any birds LOL!

 I love these little masked mice and this fun twist pop up card.  It took me a minute or two to figure out the mechanism, but thanks to Lori Whitlock You Tube-it was a breeze. 

Images are colored with copics and the card base and leaves are cut with my Silhouette.  I can't remember the name of the designer papers,  but they are older ones. You will probably see a few more of these twist cards...I love opening them and have probably opened and closed this one a hundred times!







I am entering in the following challenges:

House Mouse Monday Challenge Midway-Ornament Candy










Midway Reminder

Christmas

Anyone that knows me knows I am a total Christmas nut, so I love this challenge!  

I am using one of the brand new meecie stamps just released! It is the cling stamp ORNAMENT CANDY.  It is colored with copics and the snow added with a white Signo pen. My "snow" pen wasn't cooperating very well so let's pretend it's just the beginning of the snow storm!  Background paper is Doodlebug  Santa Express. 

It seems the meece are always snitching treats doesn't it?  I bet Monica thought she was safe from Mudpie! So much for hoarding! LOL

 A bit of a tip about the tree branches. They can be a bit intimidating to color-at least for me...For these branches I just colored the stems brown  and then colored over the pine needles with a light green like G 24 or G43. Add a little flicking with a darker green-I used G46.  The darker green will look a bit harsh so I color over the whole thing again with the lighter green to tone it all down. I did color a few spaces with Y21 just to add a bit of glow. You can see that around the edges a bit. There you go-no need to overthink it!

Bio.

I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with like minded people.


I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.



I hope you have a few spare minutes to join in our house mouse fun!

This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!

I went with the ANYTHING GOES option because I just needed to color this cute image.  I used the new Bon Bon Birthday cling stamp and the Mini Clear set for the sentiment.  I also used some pretty Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid paper. I finished it off with a little linen thread tie off. Just keeping it quick and simple as always.

Penny Black Saturday Challenge-August ATG or Sentiments



Anything Goes

or our optional theme-

'Sentiment is the focal point'






Hello Penny Black fans!  



Today I used my Azteca water color brushes again.  First try using my mister was pretty ugly...I think my misting style is just a bit heavy handed LOL. I ended up not using a mister on this one. What do you use for a mister? I need to try an alternative. 
For my card today I used:


Sympathy Sentiments
and 
Youthful




Another attempt at these lovely watercolor stamps that Jill Foster (from the Penny Black team) makes shine. She is such an inspiration! You can find Penny Black YouTube videos HERE.

Thanks for popping in today!
