Sharing a couple more this Sunday

Just a couple more cards for you that I did this weekend.

This first one is for Play Date Café's Challenge #107 to use Black, White and a splash of Orange (not sure if my splash is more of a big wave!) and for Make It Monday's Challenge #40 to use reverse appliqué - a totally new technique for me and I really enjoyed doing it. It doesn't matter for this technique if your stitching is wonky, which is good as mine is very dodgy! LOL

This is the swatch from Play Date Café.


And here's my take on it.

My next card is for Mojo Challenge #214 for the sketch, Just Add Ink's Challenge #93 to use Melon Mambo, Certainly Celery, Whisper White and Pool Party (gorgeous combo!) and for Friday Mash Up's Challenge #32 to make your card girly and/or use your favourite technique. My fave (at the minute anyway!) is die cutting. I seem to be using it on almost everything. I love all the different shapes you can now get and the dimension they can add to a card.

And that's all from this post folks! Thanks for stopping by.

    I love all those die cuts, I'm with you on it being a favourite technique (for now).

    Thanks for sharing.
