The colours for this challenge are purple, yellow and red. This is not a combination of colours that I have tried before, but it is always good to try something different.

Sketch Challenge at CLP...

I haven't posted on my blog for almost 6 months, so today I have a card that I have made for my Brothers Birthday. The stamp is from Penny Black, and as soon as I saw it I knew that it fitted my brother perfectly.
I always find making male cards a challenge in itself.



I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:
CLP Challenge Blog (Sketch Challenge)
Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge (Anything Goes)
 The Sisterhood of Crafters (Birthdays)

This week the challenge over at TOMIC is create your own background.  For my background I embossed my cardstock with the Cuttlebug Victoria embossing folder, and then I coloured over the embossed areas with my Copic pens in green, orange & blue.

Tomic Challenge Recycle

This week over at The TOMIC Challenge  The topic is to RECYCLE, so I have used this Moccona Coffee Jar.  Sorry the photo is not too good.  The light kept reflecting off the jar.

 I decorated my jar using Jillibean Papers, Wild Orchid  and Bizzy Bec flowers, Kaiser pearls and some lace.
The die for the tag is from Marianne Creatables.

This is my card that I will be entering into the TOMIC Challenge # 11 Monochromatic


I found this rather challenging trying to work in one colour.  I also had a lot of trouble trying to photograph this.  I think I need to make myself a photo light. box.  If anyone has any suggestions on how to do this, they would be gratefully appreciated.
