Birthday card for the Global Design Project #234 challenge.

Sharing a quick card for an online challenge at 
Global Design Project.

Here is the sketch

and here is my interpretation of it, 
using some older bits and bobs from my stash.

The background is a Hot off the Press paper which I smooshed with Distress Oxide Ink, Peacock Feathers.
 The tag is a piece of Mixed Media also created with 
Distress Oxides and the flower is a stamp by Tracy Scott,
Paper Artsy  ETS22. I colored it with Paper Artsy Chalk Acrylic paints, Bougainvillea, Lavender, Caribbean Sea and Limelight.

Scrap Matrix Paper Arsty Challenge

Hello creative friends, just a quick post to beat the March deadline at Scrap Matrix, which is to use Paper Arsty Products.

I used some of my favourite Tracy Scott Stamps and made a few cards to send to friends during the Covid 19 Crisis.  I'd like to spread a little hope around while we are all in lock down.

The backgrounds were all created on my gelli plate.

This Mandala is a combination from 
Paper Artsy, Tracey Scott ETS23 set.
The quote is from Tim Holtz Ideology Quote Chips.
I just wiped a little distress ink over it 
to tone in with the background.

This is from ETS33 and ETS34 with the quotes from 
Tim Holtz Small talk stickers.

A different Paper Artsy, Tracey Scott combo, 
using ETS34 and ETS 33 again but with a with different centre.
I used the Tim Holtz Small talk stickers again.

Hope you are all coping with the changes in the world, 
that you have enough to eat and something to keep you busy.
Take care.

A Golden wedding anniversary card

Hello gentle people, welcome back to my blog.
For a variety of reasons related to my health, I've been MIA.
As well as that, like most of the world, I've been confined to barracks by the virus and inspired to tackle the mess in my craft room. It's taken a few days, but I found my desk and Mr Mojo skulking under the mess!

One of my dear friends celebrated a special wedding anniversary recently and I made a simple card to mark the occasion.

At the start of the year, I bought this pretty  rectangle die from Seven Paper Dolls, Fleur de Lis Rectangles.  
It seemed perfect cut in shimmery gold.

The pretty sprigged flowers and the golden embellishments are all from an older Kaisercraft collection called "Golden Grove".

Keep well, I appreciate you calling in.
