In the spotlight


The new challenge at Try It On Tuesday this time is a technique called Spotlight which is to only apply colour to part of an image, in other words spotlight that area, there are lots of tutorials etc on Youtube etc if you need any inspiration plus our design team all have great samples over on the challenge blog.  For my card I used a stamp that was free with a magazine, coloured with Spectrum Noir pens and an old Hobby arts stamp for the wording. Hope you will join us in this challenge.

Hearts and/or flowers

 It's time again for the new challenge at Try It On Tuesday and the challenge this time asks for Hearts and/or flowers.  I've used both on my anniversary card, the background is a Stampin up embossing folder, the flower stamp is an old Paper artsy I think, the little hearts are a un named brand from Amazon and the little heart buttons are from my button collection.  Any kind of medium is welcome but it must follow the challenge theme.  The design team have lots of inspiration for you over on the challenge blog and I hope you will pay them a visit and join in the challenge.

Happy Birthday

 I'm on a bit of a mission to make more use of my embossing folders so I dug out this very old cuttlebug one and made a Birthday card for one of our adult grandsons.  all the stamps are also old stash, think they are Apple Blossom from Craft Stash? which I stamped and fussy cut.

Can You Handle The Pressure - ATG with a twist of Birthdays

I've had a really hard time linking my card to all three sites, never had a problem before but nearly gave up in despair!
