Outlawz Greetings Challenge

Happy Monday

This week over at The Outlawz, the theme is Vacation, my wonderful hubby and I are currently enjoying a staycation and pottering around in our small patch of garden. We had some repair work done to a roof recently, and to allow access to it for the workmen, we had to move an old shed. This had a knock on effect on the whole garden. After moving the shed and the repairs being done we decided to create a nice seating area. This led to more landscaping by removing an old veg plot that never did too well and turning it into a rose garden. A trip to the recycling centre today, and all things in the garden will be rosy ( excuse the pun)

Ok so on with the crafty stuff, as I mentioned the theme over at the Outlawz is Vacation, and our wonderful sponsor is 

My card uses the image - Sailboat


The DP is from my stash and is an old Docraft paper. I used some distress inks to create the scene behind the boat and added some Lawn Fawn Simple Puffy Cloud Frames. After colouring the little boat with Copic markers, I fussy cut it out, and added it to the scene with foam tape. I created the port hole style frame with two Spellbinders Circle dies and used brads to decorate it. The sentiment is from Gina K Designs and is cut out with MFT's Oval Word Window Frames.

My card uses the image Cheshire Cat


I used a Clarity stencil and Distress inks to create the window, then dusted with perfect pearls to give it a shimmer.

I used the same embossing folder for the background but this time using the embossing side. The image is coloured with Copic's and also fussy cut. The sentiment is from my stash and mounted and framed using MFT Rectangle Word Window & Frame dies. I used some Stickles for the embellishments.
