1 card 2 challenges

over on the corrosive challenge blog this week
they are asking for a faux technique...I have chosen
faux stitching....also on the scrappy frogs
challenge this week they are asking you to incorporate
faux stitching.....
this is the card I came up with for the 2 challenges...
the faux stitching is produced using the mat pack from
stampin up.....the papers are also
from stampin up(sorry don't know what they are called)...
the card is bazzill.....
the owl stamp is a new design from
owls at the's stamped onto a nesties...
label 4...and the image is coloured in with a mixture
of promarkers and copics.....have always used promarkers in the past...
because thought copics too expensive to buy...but not much
different in price about 20p...the advantage of copics is that
they have a finner nip against promarkers...I then placed
the nestie back over the image and sponged on brushed
corduroy using a the affect is makes...I made the card into an easel..
they sentiment was stamped onto a fancy tag by nesties...
thanks for looking ....feel free to leave a comment...


  1. Fabulous sweet card Catherine, love the owl.

  2. Lovely card. I have those stamps and I've only used it once. Note to self, must use it again soon! :o)

  3. Oh my gosh I LOVE this little owl !!! Such an adorable image which reminds me of all the owl stamps I just HAD to buy a short time ago & somehow they aren't getting used. Thanks for reminding me I need to ink them up...
    You've made a super cute card with him & colored him perfectly.
    Hugs, Janie
