Challenges, Craft Roulette

Lounging pups make me smile

I just love this sweet stamp set – Lounging Pups by Hero Arts. This card was originally created for the Craft Roulette challenge this week, but the card unexpectedly worked out perfectly for some other challenges too. This week the parameters were:

  • Project: Z-fold card
  • Colours: Green background + 2 (and neutrals)
  • Element: Rock(s)
  • Random: Floating

I’m entering this card for the following challenges as well as Craft Roulette this week:

Class projects, Crop & Create Delivered

Crop & Create Delivered – Hero Arts

The class with Libby Hickson and Hero Arts was another fun one. I’d never made a card with vellum before, and the easel card was the only style I’d made previously (although never a horizontal version. I was really nervous about colouring such a large image (the bunny) with Copics, but it wasn’t too bad in the end.

Some things I loved about this class:

  • Being challenged by colouring a large image – it really stretched me, which is good.
  • I love the cherry stamps – so effective creating the cheery bright background just with cherries – something I haven’t tried before, nor have I tried vellum for the card base – lots of new learnings!
  • I adore the sweet bunny card – the stencil background is so cheery, and I’ll definitely use it more in the future.
  • I really dislike fussy cutting, but it was so worth it for these fun projects! I may or may not have since ordered the dies for the bunnies and flowers, though, as I’ll definitely be doing more of these.

I used Gina K Designs inks for my cards – Turquoise Sea, Jelly Bean Green, Red Hot, Cherry Red, and Grass Green.
