Play Day

Today, I have been having a bit of a play. I haven't been trying to construct cards for challenges, I've just been indulging myself in playing around with whatever whim took my fancy! Having said that, I realised that this first card actually is another candidate for the Bah Humbug's window challenge, so I may just add a link for that. The window in this case was made by stamping the image then cutting it into quarters and mounting it slightly spread apart onto some black paper, a slightly different technique from my previous window card a few posts back.
This next one was made with some freebie downloads, which I acquired this morning. I think it was from My Graffico. The sentiment is Hero Arts.
This last one is a lovely Nostalgia, Papermania stamp, a birthday gift from a wonderful bloggy friend very well known to many of you in the world of WOYWW!
The background is my Friendship Words background stamp from Stampin' Up, which just seemed perfect for the boy and his dog.
All the cards employ ribbons coloured with Copics or Promarkers to match the colours within each card. I seem to have been going a bit mad doing that these days... but it just works SO well!
If you haven't tried it, I can thoroughly recommend the technique to you.


  1. 3 beautiful cards Chrissie.
    Although you have used a different technique to create your window, the result is just as effective and I love the tree stamp you have used.

  12. Three fabulous, stunning cards Crissie.
    I love the black and white effect of your window card, and the embossing is just the perfect background. It just goes to show what we can come up with when playing.

    Thank you so much for joining in our latest challange at Bah!Humbug


  13. Busy gal--3 cards and each as beautiful as the others. The black and white really caught my eyes--love the embossing.

  14. wow - not having a specific challenge criteria or sketch to follow just shows how talented you are when you come up with three very different cards just for the fun of it.

    I love all three cards on their own merit.
