Papertake Weekly Challenge - Do Something Different

This card is for my second week as GDT over at Papertake Weekly. The challenge this week is "Do Something Different" - use a technique, card fold or colours you don't normally use.

I decided to make an easel card - I've loved the ones I've seen as I've been blog hopping so I thought it was time I attempted my own.


I have used the Magnolia stamp "Magical Tilda with Wand", the castle on the hill is an digital image called "Cherry Kisses Castle" from Pollycraft and the frog is an Imaginisce Snag 'em stamp.

I would have used the gorgeous little frog from my Magnolia Spring Kit - but mine hasn't arrived !!! I get home from work everyday excitedly thinking surely postie has delivered it - but alas still not here !!! I'm blaming Icelandic volcanic ash !!!!


The images are coloured with copics and the DP's are from the Forever Friends "Pink Parfait" paper pack.


I'm also entering it in the following challenges:

Pollycraft Challenge - Cherry Kisses Frame

This card is based on the sketch over at the Pollycraft Challenge.

I have used the Pollycraft image "Cherry Kisses Frame - Imagine" coloured with copics. The DP's are a mixture of Basic Grey and DCWV.

I had so many problems with this card and I'm still not really happy with how it turned out. I coloured the image last night while watching television and then attempted to make the card when I got back from work today. I had so many problems with what papers to use and tried loads of different combinations before I decided on these.

Papertake Weekly Challenge - GDT card

You may need to put your sunglasses on for the card in this post.

This is my first week as part of the GDT over at Papertake Weekly and the challenge is a fab sketch by Dawny.

I have used the CC Designs Swiss Pixie stamp "Leisel with wheelbarrow" coloured with copics. The DP's are from the Wild Rose Studio paper stack "Milton & Co". I swapped over the image and sentiment because of the stamp I'd decided to use.

These aren't colours that I would ever normally use, but I had an impulsive moment at the NEC and I bought these citrusy (that doesn't look right - is that even a word) flowers and as I looked out of the window Saturday morning when I was making this card the sun was shining, the daffodils were all in flower and I think it must have had an effect on me.

I think I might have got a little carried away when I was putting the gems on !!!

When I opened a envelope that the postman had delivered this morning I nearly exploded with excitement. It was from Margrit over on the Docrafts forum and the envelope contained a selection of stamped hAnglar images and I couldn't wait to colour one of them in.

This card is made using the sketch over at Friday Sketchers and I'm also entering it over at Pollycraft and also Crafts and Me where the theme for both is Pink, Brown & Yellow.
