Inkspirational Challenges - Use a Digital Element


Our current challenge at Inkspirational  is to use a digital element. 

My DT project was designed in Silhouette Studio ( the whale and lighthouse are commercial cutting files but I designed the waves and box card shape myself, based on manual dies I've seen). Then it was cut using a Silhouette digital die-cutter.

Challenge up your Life - Rainbow

I'm honoured once again to be a guest at Challenge Up Your Life for the theme ' Rainbows'. 

I used a Clearly Besotted rainbow stamp but couldn't fit all the colours on it, so I added some Inky Doodles welly boots with the blue, indigo and violet.

 Here's a New Home card I designed and cut with my Silhouette digital cutter.  I stencilled a very light brick pattern onto the green panel. The patterned effect on the lower part of the gold heart is just a reflection...grrr!

Guest Designer - Challenge Up Your Life


I'm honoured today to be GD for Challenge Up Your Life, where the theme is ...splatters! 

I stamped a city background with a Hero Arts background stamp. Then I used a set of HA stamps to make a fountain and  mounted it on scraps of patterened paper. Then I splattered everything with gold watercolours. 

Thanks for having me Challenge Up Your Life!
