*** Card of many Layers **

Hello folks,

I hope you are all well.

Today starts a new challenge at

Sweet Stampin Challenge

where we would like to see Lots of Layers on your Creations

I have coloured with Copics a digital image from Mariola Budek called She Wolf
I do like these stunning drawings and find them very easy to colour as the shading is already done for you. Card base is white, with layers using kraft cardstock then a matted silver.  The frame is a Spellbinder oldie, cut in kraft on top of which I used a stitched rectangle die to cut a layer in silver.  The image was cut using a smaller stitched rectangular die.  Sentiment is from a Lawn Fawn stamp and die set, stamped with Black Memento Ink.  


I would like to enter the following challenges:

As you Like it Challenge - Favourite Wild Animal
 ( Wolves as I feel they are majestic looking and also because they are related to dogs 💓 )

Thanks for visiting today.
It would be great to have you join us.
hugs,

"I Can See the Sea"

This is will be the last challenge before our summer break.

For my entry I've used some much loved design papers from Graphic 45 called
"By the Sea"   As with all G45 papers there are so many gorgeous patterns and I love
how they all coordinate so beautifully. I added some sea shells from my stash then tied rope to 
create a knot.  I finished off the edges of the die cuts by adding coordinating ink to cover the white.

*** Grad ***

 Good day everyone.

Hope you are doing ok.  We are having some steamy weather with rain in the forecast
but it hasn't stopped me from lining up to visit my favourite stores now that the region is in Phase 3.
We still have not been to any restaurants but that is on our list.  It has been wonderful getting together with family and friends though ...almost feels normal. 

Today starts a new challenge at

Fab'n'Funky Challenge #531

where we have a theme of "Anything Goes"

I have a graduation card for you today.
 I made for this for our Granddaugher who is going off to study
 Engineering at University in September.  
We are so very proud of her and will really miss her frequent visits.

I've used a Pre-Coloured image from LOTV Stamps and Spellbinder Richelieu Square die
