Darcy's 6 card challenge

Darcy from Art and Sole set a challenge last week, to design 6 cards using one feature stamp. I wasn't going to enter as I didn't think I could do it, but today I thought why not so here are my cards.

I decided to use the robin from JOFY 20 as the one that I use on each card.

Card 1

On this card I used the robin half off the page to creat a border. I used distress ink in tattered rose around the edge. I used promarkers to colour the wiseman and then added some glitter around the oval. I cut out a piece of acetate with snow effect and stuck on the inside, so the wiseman are getting snowed on .

Card 2

On this card I stamped a robin in each square. I stamped some foliage from FOFY M28 coloured it and stuck them on. I drew some berries to add a bit more colour. I distressed the edge of the card in old paper.

Card 3

This card was cut from a sizzix die I stamped and coloured the robins in the 4 corners. I distressed the edges in shabby shutters and added lots of glitter. The photo doesn't show it but it is very pretty round the edges.

Card 4

I used a paper that had a christmas tree on it. I thought this would be good to add some robins to. I edged the tree in black so that it stood out more and added some pink glitter and gems.

Card 5 

On this card I drew a branch to add the robins. I cut out a coloured some more foliage. I added some decoration around the card and some sparkle again very pretty but doesn't show in picture.

Card 6 

Again used the robins as a border but it in a different way this time you can see they robins and they are coloured in. I distress round the edge of the card with antique linen. I coloured the star and added sparkle.

I really enjoyed making these cards and would le to thank Darcy for the challenge.

Hope you enjoyed your visit, thank you for looking. Please leave your comments xxx

  5. Wow, very impressive, I love how much more creative you are becoming, I love the one with the heart the most but I think they are all impressive and the use of one stamp to create all these individualistic cards is a skill you seemed to have nailed :) well done, they look great !!!!!! Xxxx
