365 cards- day 12 circle frenzy.

The challenge was to create a card using 20 or more circles from 2 different sources. I ran core' dinations CS through my circle cuttlebug folder and then sanded it to reveal the colour underneath. Then i used a stamp from my invitation as the second source.

365 cards- Outer Space

When I think of outer space I think of the images of the universe. So when i was comming up with my card that is where i drew my inspiration from. To begin with i sprayed glimmer mist on my backround paper, and then i threw white paint at it. Creating my 'outer space' scene.

Thinking of Outer Space...

One of the challenges on 365 cards blog was to make a card inspired by outter space. Alot of people would think spaceships, aliens, Buzz lightyear- My sons influence lol, but not me.
Ive always loved the stars and the galaxy, ever since i was younger. Astronomy was always my favorite subject. And lately ive been rediscovering my love of the universe lol.
One of my favorite things about the universe is the images it holds. Have you ever seen a pictutre of a nebluar? Pick one, they're all just gorgeous clouds of colour. the images you can forn in your head when you think of outter space are endless.
I love to paint. Couldnt paint a portrait to save my life, but i still love to throw paint at a canvas (literally) and create something.
This is one of my favorites, inspired by the night sky and outer space.

So when the challenge went up reguarding outer space, i was reminded of my paintings and got my inspiration from there.

365 Cards- Signiture style

This week at 365 cards was a  'style and scraplift challenge all rolled into one.' Each design team member made a card based on there signiture style. We were then to make a card in that style as well as scraplift an element of that card.

My first card is number 353 Sophies style. Sophies style is 'Clean and Simple'. The element i scraplifted was the embossed backround. I used a CS with a different coloured core so when i sanded the top of the embossing it brough through the pink underneath.

My second card is number 362- Amys Style. Amys style is fun, bright, and whimsical, and the element i lifted was the handmade embellishment/'flower'.
