Challenges


Oh my, I am SO enjoying this late summer/beginning of fall weather! I don't enjoy artsy endeavors during the heat and humidity of the summer, so I'm spending hours and hours in my happy room these days.

Today's challenge over at Created by Hand is to use stitching on your work. This first card uses machine stitching over a watercolour-resist with Ecoline inks, and the second uses hand stitching. Both cards use Quietfire Design stamps. The last card for the CBH challenge is a birthday card I finished this morning for a dear artist friend, hand stitched corner scroll with Kaisercraft pearls. I think the stamp might be Stamp It Australia, although the name on the tin box is long gone.





The challenge over at Our Creative Corner is to use stars and stripes. This card uses an old stamp from Peddler's Pack, and a sentiment stamp from Impression Obsession. The sentiment stamp is the one on the bottom, which actually says "Merry Christmas to a Special Hero," but I masked out the Merry Christmas, and added a computer generated "Happy Birthday" above the stamped image instead.



This card is for the Crazy Amigo challenge...hats! The image stamps is a House Mouse, the hat is All Night Media, and the sentiment is Quietfire Design.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
