St Lukes Charity Card Challenge.....

Cant believe its May already and that means another challenge over at St Lukes Charity card challenge...  Our challenge for you this month is ONE  LAYER...
 I have made 2 cards this month as one of our DT members Deborah has just moved to the USA and is still unpacking her crafting stash...
My first card is a Penny Black stamp called Enchanting Orchid..stamped onto Kraft card and coloured with Pencils... I then place a nestie upside down around the image to create a border.  The stamp I've used around the edges called 'Field of Sky' by A Stampin in the Hand...
My 2nd card I've been playing with my Duster Brushes and ink pads and have used all Inkylicious stamps, they have some fabulous stamps and you can create some wonderful scenes with them...I'm just learning!!!!


We have a fabulous giveaway prize this month kindly donated by LOTV,  they have kindly donated not one but 2 stamps...Thank you LOTV....
 
This is the first Stamp called Rosey Posey...
and this little lady is called Rosey with Cake

All you have to do is to make a card post it on the St Lukes Charity Card challenge, if you would like to donate your card to the Hospice that would be brilliant and details of where to send your card is also on the St Lukes Challenge blog..
Looking forward to seeing all your lovely entries again this month and again lets see if we can break last months record for entries....its for such a good cause...

I can't believe it's May either, Anne. Time is passing far too quickly.
Both your cards are absolutely beautiful. I love your gorgeous orchids card. But your second card is just wonderful! I love the scene you have created and your colouring is amazing. It reminds me of daybreak on a late summers morning...simply beautiful xx

Oh Anne, I love your first card, such wonderful colouring, and great design, then I saw your landscape scene, what a jaw dropper! Two beautiful cards!

Aquarius said...

Two very different cards but both lovely - I especially like the scenic one. Will have to take the bull by the horns and risk a one-layer card - usually signals disaster for me!!

Craftilicious said...

Not sure about learning the scene stamping Anne - looks like you've mastered it to me! I love the idea of using a nestie upside down for a wide border too and your flower is coloured beautifully.
Thanks

Two beautiful cards , love both of them but the scenery one with the brush technique is my favorite. Love the different colors & layers. That looks like a fun thing to try.
