My card for this month's Progressive Freebie challenge at The Outlawz, now running on different blogs. https://theoutlawzchallenges-freebie.blogspot.com/
Fun image from Dr Digi, called "Stacy the Stegosaurus"
Having gotten a new printer a few months ago, the old one still worked, but after 14 years of good service not working as it used to in the past. So I have been experimenting with the new printer and for this card I printed the image onto some digital paper from Beccy's Place. also used one of her sentiments, adding dino.
Coloured with copic pens cut and layered onto a card base.

This month we are celebrating "National Relaxation Day"
Some background on relaxation day, which has been going for 37 years.
We have two sponsors for this challenge
I chose an image from Scribbles designs, called Cozy. Firstly I created some background paw prints and the sentiment. The image has been coloured with copic pens.
Always thought I would have plenty of relaxation when I retired, yet I seem to be twice as busy. Lets hope the recipient of the card has more luck.

TRhis week's option is an easy one " No stamps or digital images" Time to put the thinking cap on. I have used some patterned paper from my stash.
I have added some gold shading to the large bird cage, cut the bird a second time from a left over piece of paper and added it to the card for some dimension. Quick and simple.

This was my place to begin......
This month trying to use use a new technique. I saw this many years ago, and thought I would try it, I need lots and lots more practice.
I found an old children's book where the scenes could be cut around to give a 3d effect. Hard to explain, but looking at the castle page, I have the back page with the person and dog looking over something, I cut around the outer page section of the castle, leaving the spine side still intact.
A couple of pages further back I found another
picture of the castle, again cut around the castle outer page side, this
gave me a 2d effect of the castle. Then the people were another page,
same technique. The left hand page was a lot more difficult and could
be a lot better, still trying to work out what to do with the middle
section, I should have done more pages, but was not confident enough.
but I will give this another go through the year, once I find the right
Anything Goes at Pearly Sparkles this month. This card has been made using Stampin Up products, not often I use rubber stamping, but I did it without smudging, so that makes it a great day.
This month I have used some patterned paper from my stash to make a Christmas card with a pocket to hold a couple of tags.
