Welcome to hump day Wednesday

Morning readers,

Hope your week is coming along well and that you are ready for the Bank Holiday weekend coming up!

I've found a little time to hit the Table of Craftiness with this colourful make below, time to deploy some underused Lavinia images that I've had a while as well as a fairly elderly sentiment stamp set!

My card
A close up of the image panel
The front, back and inside of my card along with the front and back of my envelope

Materials used:
  • White A2/C6, 250gsm, card and matching sized envelope
  • Two pieces of white card cut to fit
  • One piece of purple card, cut to mat
  • Lavinia Stamps graduated circles images stamped using Memento tuxedo black ink (I've had these circles for ages and found a make using them in late August of 2016)
  • Imagine That sentiment (from "Write Big #2" - acquired in August of 2012) stamped using Versafine Clair morning mist ink
  • Pro Markers used to colour: Magenta, Turquoise, Pumpkin, Lime, Orchid, Canary, Leaf Green and Aegean
  • Kaisercraft purple metallic glitter gel pen - to add twinkle to the central circle

I'll be entering the above make for the following challenges:-
  1. Freshly Made Sketches - challenge No. 400 - SKETCH - see below .. oops, turns out I was too late for this one after all!
  2. Imagine That - challenge No. 7 - ANYTHING GOES (using I.T. product)

  6. I Love Pro Markers - challenge No. 391 - ANYTHING GOES (using Pro Markers)
 RRCB 117

Started a journal page yesterday - it looked OK initially (in fact, I really quite liked it) but then I made a bad choice .... it was either the stencil, paint or both - either way, it went to hell in a handcart!! AKA "the bin"

It was fine till I added a large stencilled flower in orchid - one or the other
was a dreadful mistake and I couldn't put money on which was the issue
So, it was seconds out ... round two!

My journal page
Materials used:
  • One page of my Crawford and Black journal
  • Paper Artsy paints: banana and London bus - applied with a barely moist baby wipe
  • Paper Artsy sentiment (take time .....) and flower border (from JOFY09) stamped using Ranger Archival onyx black ink
  • Stampers Anonymous sentiment (Life ....), circle and oval design (by Wendy Vecchi "The Gift of Art" - SCS141) stamped using Versafine Clair tulip red, pinecome and purple delight - which needed to dry before the next step
  • Peerless watercolours used to colour my flower border, aided by a waterbrush

I'll be entering the above make for the following challenges:-
  1. More Mixed Media - August challenge - ANYTHING (mixed media) GOES + (optional) BRIGHT
  2. Splashymix Challenge - August challenge - PHOTO INSPIRATION - see below
  3. Creative Artiste - challenge No. 52 - ANYTHING (mixed media) GOES

great card and page Kathy, I have to say though I love the first page as well

Great stuff Kathy and sorry the first one didn't quite work, though in the photo it looks lovely, but perhaps it was after this it turned a wrong corner. The PA stamps are quirky and cute and love the orange coloured background, so bright and pretty. I haven't mentioned your card which looks great with the prettily coloured circles using that Lavinia stamp and a good sized sentiment to finish it. x

Right then! I absolutely LOVE that card and will definitely steal (I mean CASE) the idea as I have the same stamps!!!!!!!

Final journal page looks super too. Shame about ruining one u liked.
