Bugaboo's 10th Birthday Bash Day Two


This is my make for Day Two of the Bugaboo Stamps 10th Birthday Bash.
I was delighted to be a grand prize winner in the recent Bugaboo Holiday Critter Chaos - so I wanted to join in this challenge too - but I'm not sure how many entries I will be able to add...






This is my version of this sketch challenge:



Recipe:
  1. Green card blank.
  2. Strips of marbled background.
  3. Layer of green card.
  4. The Friday Freebie printed again (I liked it so much), coloured with Copics and cut out.
  5. Sentiment cut out separately.
  6. Two green buttons (ladybirds).

I will link this to the Day Two Bugaboo 10th Birthday Bash

Clever Dexter January Challenge


Cleverly Concocted Creations!
CLEVER DEXTER CLEVERLY CONCOCTED CREATIONS!

Remember I announced that from January 1st 2020 a new challenge was starting?

This month we invite you to join in with


THEME: Goal Getter

PALETTE: Lilac, Gold, Blue, Black


SPONSORED BY: The Paper Shelter

Please visit the Clever Dexter Challenge Blog to find out more...

Here is my first inspirational make for this challenge:


I have made a twisted easel card, using a white card blank and an extra square of white card to make the basic fold. I then used the precoloured image and background paper from The Paper Shelter: Happy New Year!


I added layers of pale orange card behind the image and background paper on the base.


I cut out a further section from another print of the background to form the easel stand, placing it on dimensionals, having first stamped it with the sentiment.


Finally I added some gold snowflake embellishments.

Hope you will come and join us!!
