Stamping Through The Night!!!

Couldn't sleep last night so I made three cards for the third challenge of The Big Challenge over at Crafts by Carolyn forum. It had to be three men's cards so I started off with the fishing card using my favourite set of stamps from Rubbadubbadoo. I seem to be having a bit of a thing for my Adirondacks at the minute so the background is Stonewashed, Lettuce and Denim rubbed on with cotton wool. The birds have been stamped in Moonlight White Brilliance and then on the circles I added accents with a white gel pen.......another current favourite.
For the motorbike card I used a spotty background stamp and a paisley background stamp both Stamp n'Stor by Sunday International. The spotty one is coloured with Red Pepper and Cranberry Adirondack and the paisley has been chalked with black chalk around the edges.
The motorike is by Clarity Stamps and has been stamped in Stazon and then coloured over with the Red Pepper and Cranberry ink. The chain has been secured with brads.
For the VW card I first coloured some pieces of card using Ancient Page in Palm Leaf, Redwood and Light Brown and then stamped in Onyx Black Versafine.
The stamp is Anita's.
I do love doing these challenges and wish I had the time to do all the ones posted every week.
Off to see what the next challenge on the list is and see if I can squeeze a bit of time to do it. I should really be sorting out cards for workshops but you never know......some of what I do could be workshop cards if I use the right stamps.
Catch you later
