Clarity Challenge... Vintage

Hello Clarity Stampers, It seems ages since I last blogged a Clarity Challenge card because we have been doing some renovations on the house, I was determined to enter this month's challenge so here I am puffin' and panting  last minute to get my card entered.

The background was made using my new gelli plate , I used Barbara's scrunched copier paper technique. I  really puzzled over which of my Clarity stamps was vintage and I finally settled for this  wild dogrose stamp which I stamped twice to make a frame for one of my favourite sentiment stamps. I gave my topper a torn edge which I inked and then I matted & layered onto some distressed card.

Phew there are still a few hours to go till the challenge closes tonight to I better nip over and try and get linked up. Looking forward to seeing what the next challenge is

Bye Annie xx

Fussy & Fancy Challenge #97 Sport

When I saw the theme for this month's challenge was sport I thought of some cute Lili of the Valley stamps I had bought recently. It was going to be something different for me because I am not very confident about my colouring in compared to the amazing work that we are used to seeing on F&F.

 I played about with some papers that were a freebie with a magazine and some spellbinders dies.... then I remembered I had some scrabble type letters amongst my stash, a bit of bakers twine and I was done.

So now all I have to do is wait to find a footie mad little birthday boy to give it to, I must say I really enjoyed colouring in this cute little image,  ... I am definitely going to get some more practice in.

Hope you will give this challenge a go and that you enjoy it as much I did, bye for now xxx Annie
