Funky Hand and Crafter's Companion Challenges

Here I am! Back again with some more cards!! My first card is for the new Funky Hand 'Get Funky' Challenge which has just started this month, and there is a fantastic sketch to follow from the very talented Anice...

For my card I used my 'Minty Madness' download package which I've had for quite a while now (since the release day in fact!) and it's lay neglected for a while on my laptop, but it prints so beautifully and is the most adorable shade of green, so yummy!! I teamed the download up with a cute little Pierre 'Daddys Boy' image from Pollycraft and a sentiment circle from the Funky Hand 'Now That's Funky' CD which I totally adore!! I coloured the hippos with a Promarker in a 'Pastel Green' shade, and it matches the download perfectly don't you think!?!

And my next card is for the Crafter's Companion Challenge this fortnight where there is another yummy sketch to follow, and here is my take on it...


I used one of my cute little Popcorn bear stamps on my card, I coloured him with Lyra Aquacolours and added a matching sentiment (I believe Jacqui came up with the sentiments to match the stamps, and they work so well Jacqui thank you!!) The papers are from K & Co and have been in my stash forever!!

Well... that's it for now, but before I go I have to tell you that there are some truly scrummy new Pollycraft designs soon to be released, you will start to see them soon on all of the DT and GD blogs, I will have a card to show as soon as I can!!!

Love Becky xx

Anice said...

Thanks for joining in with our first challenge on the new Funky Hand challenge Blog Get Funky! Your card is adorable. I have to admit green is my favourite colour so Minty Madness is one of my favourite download collections. I think you have matched the colours on your image perfectly. Lovely work.
