I just love watching video's of people colour images on their cards. It's extremely relaxing and I'm in awe of their artistic skills and abilities. I know it must take a lot of practice but I sometimes wish I had been born with some sort of drawing ability.
Its taken me nearly a week to get up the courage to make my card for the Showcase your Style challenge. With what I had in mind, I knew I would need to colour in some critters. I only have some pencils and have picked up a few ideas from the video's but feel I've got a long way to go........
I spent quite a while in the wee small hours of this morning, stamping and colouring a batch of different critters. I thought that if I go to sleep and look at them again with fresh eyes, I could choose the best ones.
After die-cutting the circle from the card front, I die-cut a piece of green CS with a stitched-curved die for the grassy hill. This was adhered inside the circle. I then glued a piece of white CS behind the hill and the circle. The toadstools where tucked and glued behind the hill. I adhered the owl and rabbit on the hill itself and then used foam tape to attach the sentiment. A few sky blue enamel dots finished off the scene.
The circle die is from Couture Creations and the stitched-curved die is from Pretty Pink Posh. The critter stamps are from Kaisercraft and the sentiment from Fiskars 'Say What?'. The enamel dots are from Papervine.
I'm going to link this to four other challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge (Anything Goes)
Uniko Studio Challenge # 19 (Anything Goes)
Simply Create Too # 82 (Anything Goes)
Seize the Birthday Challenge (Anything Goes
Max (8yrs) stayed home with me today, just because. Both kids used to ask to stay home all the time so I said they could both have one day off each term, no questions asked. It's worked out well. We had a lovely day walking Bella, playing on the trampoline and watching funny clips on YouTube. Almost tempted to let him stay home again tomorrow but only have two days left before their two week school holidays and need to get myself prepared!!
