Sharing some Sage

Just a couple of cards I made this morning using retired SU colour Sage Shadow. This wasn't one of those colours I used all the time, but it was a nice pastel-y shade and we haven't really got another in the same tone now. Shame as it worked so well with so many different colours.

This first card is for SC409 for the sketch, Hope You Can Cling To Challenge #26 to use a dog image (had to hunt around in a couple of boxes to find one though!) and for Play Date Cafe's Challenge #155 to use these colours, which I interpreted as Sage Shadow, Soft Suede, Tangerine Tango and I had to swap the vanilla for white as I only have white in the Copics cardstock and I don't think Very Vanilla blends especially well when I use Copics on it.

And here's my card.


My next card is for A Passion for Papertrey's Inky Love Required challenge to use a set that you haven't shared much love with and Hope You Can Cling To Challenge #30 to use cork, canvas or clay. I just had to have Mat Stack 5 Collection when it came out, with the matching dies of course, to make a card in the style of Betsy Veldman, who made a fab card during the release that month and made me want to buy the set. I don't believe I have ever used it, nor the dies, so out they all came to make this card, which as you can see has no cork, canvas or clay on as I don't have any of either. Simply put, I cheated and use my Canvas Impression Plate instead, although it is hard to see in the photo, I can assure you it is there.


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