Funday Sunday . . . Again!
Hi followers and fellow bloggers! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend! As per my decision a couple of weeks back, it's Sunday, and my Funday!!
Now, some of you will remember that I posted a card HERE for the CASometry 2 Make 5 Challenge where Anna is challenging us to pick a stamp set and make five cards with it. Now, when I took up the challenge, in my excitement, I'd forgotten that I wouldn't be here to link up my cards. We are going to be in rural Spain, for nearly the whole of June (without access to constant internet, telecommunications . . . and, sometimes . . . water). I am so disappointed about this (not being in Spain, but, not being able to participate), that I went ahead and made them anyway! This is the set I chose. Altenew's beautiful, 'Wild Hibiscus'.
To remind you, what the first one looked like, here it is again. You will find the full post HERE if you want to find out how it was made.
Now, here are the other four cards ** Warning ** this post is picture heavy!
This was heat embossed in silver on grey card-stock. This is the next.
For this one, I chose to do the 'spotlight' technique. Now, here is my fourth card.
Now, here is my final one. I wanted to keep this one fairly simple. so I made a one layer card with masking and my favourite colouring method - sponge dauber colouring - it's my favourite because there is no need to worry about going outside of the lines (in fact, it gives a pretty kind of halo effect if you do, which adds to it in opinion). If you are still with me here . . . WOW! Thank you for sticking it out!
I think I’m going to try to do it more often, at least that is one stamp set out of my collection of over 1000 sets that I don’t have to feel guilty about! I don’t go until the 30th May (so 3 weeks yet) but I was so thrilled at having made 5 cards from 1 stamp set, that I just wanted to post them!
Thank you so much for your visit today and especially if you have left a comment. You are all appreciated more than you know!
