Happy Little Stampers' September Challenge


The Challenge at Happy Little Stampers this time is COLOURING!


Here I have a lovely Digi from A Day for Daisies, coloured with watercolour pencils and blended with a water brush. A little clear Wink of Stella was added to give a subtle touch of sheen.
The sentiment is a die cut from Simon Says Stamp. The front panel was cut with a SSS stitched rectangle, elongated a little to fit British dimensions.
There are so many different ways of colouring so do join in the fun.

The Male room

The challenge at the Male Room this time is to use newsprint. I thought that rather than paper piecing part of this image from Art Impressions, I would stamp and colour the whole thing on some newsprint. I don't dislike the effect, but I had to use  little acrylic paint to make the white sections white! The remainder is coloured with alcohol pens.

CAS on Sunday

A short while ago I was lucky enough to win the challenge at CAS on Sunday!
Following this I was asked to be their Guest Designer for the challenge this week which has the theme of WATER!
I made this card to send to a friend undergoing chemo and radiotherapy. The results have been very painful for her and so this card was to try to cheer!
It's a Paper Smooches image with an added splat stamp which I thought looked rather like a wave!
The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.
Addicted to CAS has the challenge of Blue, so this for that too!

Going nautical

There's a sketch challenge at Just Us Girls this week!
My version uses an anchor die from My Creative Time within a die cut from Simon Says Stamp. A touch of DP and a Hero Arts sentiment and that's it!
This next card is for a couple of challenges.
A Day for Daisies and CASology each have the theme Plaid.
I paper pieced some Pink Petticoat paper onto the chicken and added a computer generated sentiment.
Now to work out a design for some orders of service for my DIL's sister's wedding!
