I want to ride my bicycle ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. Please accept my apologies because I only have another card to share with you today. I am trying to get some canvas finished but I’m struggling, so here is today’s card …
I appear to be in a 'green' phase right now!
It's a lovely scene
I just love this stamp!
A final look
Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Little Claire’s Design Challenge #71 Anything Goes
The Pencil Case Challenge #24 Xanthic Yellow or Anything Goes
I used a paper that has yellow in it deliberately
Wednesday’s Creative Inspirations Challenge #255 Extended Summer Challenge
We Love to Create Challenge #15 Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes
As I mentioned a while ago I had put a Paperbabe stamp set and Little Claire stamps ‘somewhere safe’, it really is the kiss of death for craft supplies and stamps as they go missing for quite a while. Well when I found the Paperbabe tree stamp set I also found several lovely Little Claire stamps that were NBUS too.
It felt good to get them inky and I love this pretty bicycle stamp. It will get quite a bit of use now, hopefully, as it’s ideal to use on any landscapes I create. The landscape for this card was created with Pan Pastels. I then stamped grasses and what look like little orange flowers using my Spectrum Aqua pens. The background was created with left over AquaTints and once that was dry I stamped the whole piece using my Stampin’ Up grunge set. Several really old stamps, newer stamps and NBUS stamps were used and as I didn’t add much bling so this is good card for those pesky men lol!
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
