Leaves in a Jar Card

 This month's freebie from the Outlawz Monthly Freebie Progressive challenge is from Jan's Digi Stamps . 

The image is called  "Sign of Autumn" as that is the last thing I want signs of, I have coloured the leaves with Copic greens as I'm loving Spring at the moment.  Once coloured, I fussy cut the image, wrapped twine around the jar, attached a tag and sentiment.

 I have also covered the jar in glossy accents, which isn't noticeable in the photo, but has given the jar a glass look and a smooth feel.

CHNC Christmas #508, 19th Sept

This week's Anything Goes challenge has the option of "Including the word Joy"

The word joy comes from a kit by Scrapbook Art, I changed a heart to the star from the Three King silhouette, which I found in my stash.

I typed the remaining of the sentiment, adding some smaller stars, printed deckle cut, using silver ink for highlighting the edges and silver kindy glitz on the stars.

Angies Digital Stamps Challenge, 6 Sept, 2020

Anything Goes at Angies Digital images this month.   I confess ,I am so over this pandemic, just like everyone else.  Where I live, we have been in extremely strict lockdown and I feel everyone is ready to boil over.

So, how about a little poem (one of my favourites) in this years Bullet Diary.  The image called "Stack of Teacups" has been paper pieced.  I have used teabag paper to make the little teabag.  Hope you enjoy my Pandemic High Tea.

Simply Create Too, 4 Sept, 2020

We're making shaker cards this month, the image on my card is from Colour of Love (formerly  Lacy Sunshine} and is called, "Sleepy Time Evie Unicorn.

The image has been  coloured with copic pens, the stars coloured with a Wink of Stella gold pen.  I have used a blue card base and created the shaker over the front of the card with lots of little stars.  The image has been adhered to the front of the clear panel along with the sentiment an d some liquid pearls.

Now because I don't always think things through, as I had coloured the unicorn in girly colours and used a blue card, I inserted pink patterned paper into the centre of the card.  Much more girly!  Sorry, there are a few reflections in the clear panel.
