In The News


Playing along with a few challenges today with this one layer card.  I've used one of the images from my new stamp set, The Bee's Knees BabyBump.  I pencilled a washing line, then stamped the jacket three times at different angles to make it look like they're blowing around in the wind, then drew in the line and the posts with a 0.5 fineliner.  The jackets are coloured with Distress Ink and the same colours are splattered across the card to look like pollen and dust floating on the breeze.

Ok, first up is One Layer Simplicity, where Karen's challenge is Blowin' in The Wind.


Then there's CASology - News, to celebrate the birth of DT member Gillian's baby boy :)


Next up ShowCASE Your Style where there's a (stretch-a-)sketch.  What do you think - a stretch too far?


And finally at Less Is More, it's a one layer splatter challenge - yay!

The grasses stamped on the card belong to a set that was in the goody box that I bought from Debby Lime Doodle in aid of breast cancer causes.  Wanna see all the contents?

  12. Love your 'doodled' clothesline and the sweet colored jackets! I'm sure I can smell the fresh air fragrance - nothing can compare to the smell of laundry dried on an outdoor line! Hmmmm....perhaps it's time for a 'clothesline' series of stamping images ???

  13. You thought of everything when you made this card, Shirley. It satisfies all the challenges and it darling to boot. I can see now why you design stamps. Your additions to the stamped images are perfect.

  14. Your baby jackets on the clothes line: fabulous! If they were hanging here, today, they'd likely be blown to another mountain range! Sunny, but soooo windy! Your goodies like a whole lot of fun waiting to be had...and proceeds heading for such a great cause!
