Crafty Catz Challenge #561 -Anything goes with an optional twist
sponsored this week by BUGABOO
Wednesday, 21 July 2021
I coloured up a beautiful (free) image I found online- really needed a little colouring therapy at the time! I used soft shades of mauve and purple which is quite an unusual choice for me. I matted the coloured image onto an embossed panel and a layer of DP. Three brads (so old they're probably vintage!) a mauve ribbon and stamped sentiment to finish.
Apologies for slightly dingy colours, the embossed panel and cardstock is actually bright white!
There's more to see over at Fab'n'Funky, so please do take a look, it would be great to have you play along this week!
Thanks for visiting

I die cut a square of white cardstock, stamped the floral image and masked it off. I used a stencil (magazine freebie!) and black ink to create the chevron pattern. I stamped the little girl (a Vera Lane stamp), masked that too and stamped the flowers she is sitting on and added the stamped sentiment. My copic markers were used for colouring both images. I placed the panel on a black card base.
I've spent most of the morning in the garden, sitting in the shade -reading. I did give Marvin a good brushing though, his adult coat is starting to come through now, at the grand age of 6 months. He's looking very handsome but oh boy everywhere gets covered in his hair- every day the vacuum cleaner is absolutely full of it and when I brush him it comes out in handfuls! I keep thinking we're going to have a bald dog at this rate- but oh no the hair is never-ending- his coat is thick, shiny and getting a much darker red. Here he is- my handsome boy! Looks as if butter wouldn't melt- looks are very deceptive...!
Thanks for visiting today, keep safe and healthy and cool!

I'll be back...
Good afternoon my lovely friends and followers,
A brief explanation for my unscheduled absence- my brother lost a short but traumatic battle with bowel cancer and passed away last month. I have needed some time to spend with my family and to try to get my head around the sudden loss of such a wonderful man. I'm still struggling with this but need to keep myself busy, so intend to be back blogging on Friday...fingers crossed.
