I have a few projects to share today. I love Autumn colors and was so inspired by the Simon Says Autumn Challenge and HLS Mixed Media Nature Challenge I ended up making 3 cards (and I have another two backgrounds .... ) I hadn't planned on making so many cards but whilst waiting for each step to dry I wasn't quite satisfied with the progress and started something new ..... and with each step the projects veered off in different directions. Gotta love crafting.....
Here is my first project:
I used a number of dies, Distress Inks, Paints and Stains, Texture Paste and gel medium. Love the metal tag "embrace imperfection".
I hope you've had a great week-end and managed to squeeze in some crafting time. I have two cards I'd like to share with you today.
The first card is for the Case a DTChallenge at StampTV. We had to CASE one of Karen's gorgeous cards ..... that was the tough part - deciding which one to choose .... decisions decisions! Here is the one I finally chose and here is my entry:
All the supplies used are Gina K Designs.
I'll also be participating in Simon Says Think Pink Challenge.
This card was made with two challenges in mind both supporting Breast Cancer Awareness. The challenge at CAS-UAL Fridays is "1 in 8", as 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. I recently watched this video by Jennifer McGuire and this technique came to mind for this challenge.
The challenge at Mod Squad this week is For the Birds and I knew immediately I would use my hummingbird stamp. I love watching them in the garden. Did you know they beat their wings about 70 times per second and lap up nectar at a rate of about 13 licks per second?
After a rough week it was great to be able to craft again yesterday. Although after seeing the destruction and devastation of Hurricane Matthew I have nothing to complain about. I hope you are all safe!
