It's all about the MUSIC

This week over at The Outlawz
 the colour challenge is a great one.
 You can find details HERE
Now I am from this great era and my idols as a teenager
were THE BEATLES. My favourite was PAUL
I loved the inspiration photo that Laurian put up for us
who chose the colours and twist.
This is what I came up with
I must admit I got my fingers in a very inky state but had
a lot of fun putting it together.
I started off with black card stock and topped it with
an emboss resist technique
with a CB embossing folder.
I distressed the edges and added some twine.
 Now this is where I got inky after I stamped
my guitar from Inspired by Stamping using various distress inks
I tore the inked edges and attached to my card.
The back has a small bit of mesh which I also inked.
 Cut out a pick from the Guitar stamp set and attached it.
I finished off with colouring some Western Boots
which is a digi kindly supplied to the DT
by Roxann Suits from Outlawz.
I am also entering this card in the
 'ALL BOY' challengeover at Cuttin & Stampin

Friends of Speedy TV Challenge 113 - Tissue Paper

I came across this fun challenge over at Friends of Speedy TV
and knew I had to make a card for it.
I love using paper napkins which to me is the
 same as tissue paper so I got out my drawer full of ideas
and here is what I made.
It was super easy to make.
I started off with white card stock and inked it with a
 texture waive stencil from Memory Box.
Added 2 coloured mats at the back.
The dolphin napkin has been scrunched up and then glued
to paper. I added a little glossy accents to the coral at the bottom
and to the dolphins eye. And that is all there is to it.
A super quickie for today.

Another JUGS card

Here I am with another card for the current
Inspiration Challenge over at
I love this Penny Black stamp and thought it time I
inked it up again. Suited the colour combination
especially with the pretty daffodil.
A very simple card with some scrapbooking paper
a bit of embossing with a CB folder and sentiment is from SU.
I embossed the lovely little hedgehog in black coloured his body
a bit and added glossy accents to the daffodil and his cheek.
The tiny butterfly is from Sizzix.
Thanks for popping in today. Hope to see you back again soon.
