The Outlawz Freebie Progressive Challenge

You Got This

This months freebie is this very elegant image called My Fair Lady by Sheepski Designs and I wanted to keep it clean and simple. I decided to go with a basic colour scheme, white dress with just two contrasting colours and am happy with the way it turned out. The sentiment is from the set The New Pretty by The Ton. Added two strips of black CS then two strips of red PP from Kaiser 6 1/2 in pad called Looking Glass before adhering to a black card base. A touch of clear Wink of Stella on the red to finish off. 


Copics: 
Skin: E0000,000,01,R46.
Dress: N1,3,5,R24,46.
Hat: N5,7,9,R24,37,46.
Shadow: C0.

Gerda Steiner Monthly Freebie Digi Challenge

Special Friends

This months freebie is this adorable pair and a joy to colour. Have a friend that is going through a rough patch at the moment and thought she would appreciate it. I was going to use my copics when we met for a friendly craft get together but I forgot to pack them so a friend let me try her new Chameleon pencils and I am impressed with them. They blended really well and I didn't use a blending medium. They will be on my list when my prismas finally die.


I die cut friends on the card front then again on a scrap piece of white cardstock and layered then up. Cut the panel to 4 3/4 ins and added two strips of blue to each side then adhered it to a 5in card base. A nice and simple, nearly one layer card.

Born To Be Wild Birthday Card

Born to Be Wild

A friend asked if I could make a card for a special friend for her 50th birthday and if it could have a motorbike theme and this is the result. The stamp is from Whimsy stamps and is part of their KennyK Collection but is no longer available. KennyK has their own on-line store but you need to be quick as they are closing at the end of this month. I coloured the image with copics, then layered it onto PP from a Kaiser 61/2 x 61/2 pad called Attitude. Before adhering it to a grey card base I wrapped twine around with an attached bike charm, then added some gears and cogs. The sentiment is a digi from Just Ink Lined.
