Shopping Our stash & Seize the BIrthday

Over at Shopping Our stash this week they ask for forest animals.
I've chosen the last wood veneer fox I had from Christmas cards but have put it in a forest toned card.
The orange spotty washi tape sets him off nicely, don't you think?

At Seize the Birthday they want black, white and one other colour.
I chose red and made a male card.

Paper Issues sketch

Paper issues { Friends and Fans} facebook page has a sketch challenge.
No automatic alt text available.

I have 3 papers left from my Counterfeit kit, all very similar.
The brick wall stencilled one on the left appears to be a trend at the moment, so I'm starting with that.


I flipped over the Fancy Pants middle one and found black dots on the back.
I used both sides of that.
I've used all the turquoise ribbon now. I used a stapeler to join it on the tag. The beautiful handmade flowers are from Scrappers Garden.

What is left now will be for cards.

Concertina Album

I've made a concertina album using the pinks and blacks in my Counterfeit kit.
As yet, there are no photos but I wanted to show you the scrapbooking part of it.

The next 3 have self rotated despite being upright in my pictures. Sorry!
I tried to rotate them in imaging software but that just made it worse.
Then it decided to do it correctly again...stupid blogger.

March CKC Challenge #2

Challenge #2 is to use wet mediums.
I started with a sheet of white cardstock and wet it gently under the kitchen tap.(Not soaked but damp).
Lining up my mists I sprayed blobs along the top using a rainbow idea.
Yellow, red, blue green. I also misted over the top with a clear/frosted mist.
While it was wet, I turned the card vertically and let it dribble down.

Dry in the sun or use a heat gun.

The photo was from a market in Darwin and featured different coloured beads.

Sorry about the shadows. I tried scanning it and photographing it. This is the best I can get it

Cardz4guyz wants numbers.
One of the B sides of my papers was a numbers grid. (How fortunate!)
I used it as my background then added washi tape resembling tyre tracks and a couple of buttons.


Here's the first Stuck sketch for March.
While I was away last week I spotted trotting horses and gigs on the beach and in the nearby sandhills.
I found an old Print Blocks paper named beach sand .How appropriate!

The bingo card, green spot paper and journal card are from my Counterfeit Kit.
Many of the other embellishments were on my scrap table.

I called it XYZ because it was right at the end of my holiday.
