Due to the lack of time I haven't completed one of Laura or Kazan's sketches for what seems like an eternity. So no excuses this week, what with 2 weeks annual leave the rubbish weather here in the uk what better way to relax than to sit in the craft room making cards.
For this card I used cosmo cricket paper (my fave at the mo) SU cardstock, lots of lovely red buttons, machine stitching, crackle glaze, flowers I found at the bottom of one of my flower jars and crackle glaze. I roughed up the edges with my distresser...
The colours we were asked to use this week were: BG02, RV02, YG03. As soon as I saw those colours I was pleased as I was just finishing off a card using 2 othose colours. Unfortunatley I did not have BG02, one that needs to be on my list to buy I think.
The image I used was Lilo & Milo adaptly called Rainy day ( its pouring down where I live today!). I coloured the image with my trusty copics and used: B00 B02 B05 YG00 YG03 YG23 Yoo Yo6 Yo8 Eoo E21 RV02. I paper pieced the umbrella with Cosmo Cricket papers, also used for matting the stamped image, added glitter to the rain drops and glossy accents to the puddle to add a bit of a glossy sheen. I used SU punch for the bottom of the patterned paper and also added buttons and beads threaded on wire. The flowers are by Prima.

This week we had to use the following colour combo:
YG63, YR04 and R35. I managed to use all of these colours plus a few more, well lots more really !
For this card I used a Gorjuss stamp,Anna Griffin cardstock, lace and ribbon I snatched from my stash, also blossoms and buttons. I added a few blobs of stickles (well a gals somehow got to try and use up the contents of the numerous bottles that happen to be lying around).

Just made it by the skin of my teeth! I had such a horrible day at work I had to make a card to take my mind off it. So made a card for the copics challenge which this week was a sketch from the deliciously lovely Maddy Hill. For the card I used:
A magnolia stamp coloured with copics, (Maddy if your reading this I'm still trying :) ), patterned paper by K & Company - Hopscotch girl Pink dots, machine stitching, brown tag (a bundle was given to me by a dear friend), miscellaneous buttons,silver wire and beads and Prima swirl.
