The last card I posted was for my football- mad nephew and this one's for a different nephew, who's into rugby.

I used an embossing folder as both the background and sentiment and I found rugby images online, which I traced and cut on my Silhouette digital cutter.

 As You Like It  I chose dry embossing here as it's quick, easy and foolproof.

Inkspirational Challenges - Spotlight Technique


Our new challenge at Inkspirational is:

For my DT card I made a birthday card for my football-mad nephew. First I printed the image - a digi from Lily of The Valley - onto craft card. Then I printed it again twice - once on plain white and then on spotty paper. I die cut a circle out of the white card,coloured the image in and pieced it onto the original image. Then I paper pieced the spotty paper on the gloves, Finally, I stamped a sentiment. Is this too much info????

I hope you'll pop over to Inskpirational and see what the rest of the team have made, and join in.

Inkspirational Challenges - Seasonal


Our new challenge at Inkspirational is: 

I can't make enough Christmas cards, really! For this one, I used a panel I'd made previously, with blotches of watercolour paint. I added die-cut snowflakes and a Christmas sentiment.

I hope you'll join in the challenge.
