Autumn Time

 This month's image from The Outlawz Monthly Progressive Freebie challenge is Star Stampz, Autumn.

I printed the image on some watercolour paper and coloured with watercolour pencils.  I have gone over a number of the black lines with a Micron Pen as my printer was too happy with the paper I used.

Did a bit of doodling on an art journal page, layered different cardstock, some leaves and gold thread to create an Autumn page.

Happy Birthday Dino Dude

 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.
