CCM #234 Birthdays

Our challenge today at Crafty Cardmakers is a lovely easy one, birthdays. We are happy to see any of your proects to do with birthdays, it doesn’t just have to be a card.

I did, however, go with a card as it coincided nicely with a friend’s birthday.

She is married to a beef farmer and just loves their cows, so I couldn’t resist the fabulous Katzelkraft image of the smiling cow, who looks like she is celebrating something with that cheeky grin.

This was a lovely simple design all on one layer, apart from the pink mirri mat that tones in with her udders and lips, which along with the rest of her were coloured with copics.

The sentiments are a mixture of ones from my stash….. the Smile sentiment I believe was from Crafter’s companion, the ‘it’s’ and the ‘Your Birthday’ are from Clarity.

CCM #233 3-2-1

Our challenge this time is a 3-2-1 challenge. We would like to see your creations using 3 of one thing, 2 of another and 1 of a third. For example, 3 patterned papers, 2 diecuts, 1 image. It would be helpful if you could mention in your post what your 3,2,1s are!

My card was created with a premade paper from Clarity, that’s the one right at the back and one I made myself. But as I had several disasters trying to stamp onto a watercolour card I made myself I did it the opposite way around. I stamped the Katzelkraft Cat and Dogs onto the card first and then made the watercolour background around them with two of Jane Davenport’s Mermaid Markers in blue and yellow and lots of water.

The pattern in the background was made with contrasting oxide inks using a stamp from Chocolate Baroque, I think from their Harlequin Fragments stamp sheet.

The sentiment I created on my pc and added a black box around each of the words. I tore the card to look like the cat had ripped the wallpaper as it slid down the wall!

My 3 are the animals, 2 papers, and 1 sentiment.
