More MDS

My second foray today into the new and exciting world of MDS. This hybrid creation is for NAC#90, a colour challenge using Crisp Canteloupe, Summer Starfruit and Night of Navy. I am well known for completely getting the names of SU colours wrong. Baked Brown Sugar was Burnt for a very long time. Only today have I realised it is Crisp Canteloupe. I have been calling it Crushed Canteloupe. My daughter calls it Crushed Antelope... 

Rainy Day MDS Project

Such a rainy, grey day with a murky photo to match! Inspired by having coffee with my up-line, Fanny (and meeting a lovely Leopard gecko) I finally took the plunge and installed My Digital Studio. I had a go a while back with the thirty day free trial and decided that this was the perfect dark and dismal day to have a proper go with it. Betsy's Blooms is such a gorgeous stamp set and it is great to be able to try lots of different colour combinations instantly. Another plus is that I am not covered in ink! Have a lovely Bank Holiday weekend - April x

Life in the Forest

I have rustled up this card for the Handstamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge#184. I wanted to use some Watercolour Wonder dsp with the Life in the Forest stamp set. I have also used the Postage Stamp punch which I love. It wasn't easy doing the colouring in, as Spot Cat kept walking on it, but I did enjoy making this quick card. Happy Bank Holiday Monday!

Zoo Review

We have had rather a busy weekend as it was my daughter's birthday yesterday. I'm glad I have found the time to make this fellow though. It is my entry for NAC#87 which is a sketch challenge this week. Using the lion stamp from Zoo Review, my card combines Cajun Craze and Always Artichoke cardstock with banners in Crushed Curry and Eastern Elegance dsp. I have also used a Label Framelit and the Chevron embossing folder. I hope you like him! April x
