Sharing on a Sunday

I had loads of fun yesterday with Papertrey Ink's Stamp-A-Faire's challenges, but these are the few cards I did yesterday morning, before I started my marathon of card making.

This first card is a first technique for me, using Make It Monday's Challenge #23 Dry Brushing. I didn't have any white acrylic paint so I used some green stuff I had left over from painting my Hallowe'en decorations last year. I love the rustic kind of feel to it and added a bit of brown ink round the edges just to finish it off a bit better. I also used Stampin' Royalty's Challenge #81 for the sketch and CC332 to use Chocolate Chip, Wild Wasabi and Pool, Party, which we haven't got over here yet, so I subbed it with Soft Sky instead.

Stamps: Frog Hop, Fillable Frames #2, Fillable Frames Additions 1 all from PTI


Papers: Chocolate Chip, Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky (retired), Bella Rose DSP (retired) all from SU, Stampers Select White from PTI


Inks: Chocolate Chip, Wild Wasabi both from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics, Acrylic Paint


Accessories: Wild Wasabi Ribbon (retired) from SU, Fillable Frames #2 die from PTI, Buttons from Elzybells

My next one is for Viva La Verve's Sketch #2 for July for the sketch, Color Throwdown's Challenge #151 to use rainbows and Cute Card Thursday's Challenge #174 to make a man's card. Ever since I saw Maile Belles card here I have wanted to make a rainbow of chevron stripes and I finally got round to it on this card!

My next one is another SUO thank you for one of my customers.

I did stretch this sketch a bit, but you can still see the inspiration (I hope!) This is the pretty swatch from CR84FN...
