Crafty Sentiments Challenge – Use Dies!

Hello! I’m back again with my GDT post for the CRAFTY SENTIMENTS CHALLENGE BLOG and our theme this week is Use Dies!

We have a fabulous prize on offer for the winners so check out THE BLOG for all the details.

Now one of my brothers had the audacity to have a birthday in January…I know how rude!!...so I made him a card using this fab stamp called TOBEY – ME AND MY CAT because…well…he has a cat!   

I attempted to colour this mischievous kitty to look like my brother’s cat, Harvey.  However as Tobey looks nothing like my brother I suppose the cat, looking nothing like Harvey, is perfectly alright!!!😁


Ingredients:
Stamped Image: TOBEY – ME AND MY CAT
Colouring Paper: ULTIMATE GRAPHIC
Colouring: Faber Castell Polychromos
Paper: Nitwits ‘Bear Necessities’
Dies: Memory Box ‘Puffy Clouds’ – Tattered Lace ‘Pin Point Square’ & Leaves – Die’sire Fence- Tonic Sentiment – Sue Wilson ‘Pierced Flags’
Others: Star Punch – Glitter Dots – Tonic Nuvo Drops

Drop into THE SHOP where there are so many super gorgeous stamps for you to purchase and pop to THE BLOG to join in with our challenge and check out all the amazing designs from the DT.

Thanks so much for looking and for your kind comments and have a wonderful weekend!

See ya!

The DT theme this week was Flowers & Foliage but with a twist…we had to use a design sheet! Ooooh.  Now I have not used one before (don’t know why they are ridiculously easy to use as they contain everything you need to create a co-ordinating project) so this was a new experience for me.

So no colouring again but I threw almost ALL the embellies on the design sheet at this stepper card as you can probably see!! LOL
