Sizzling away

A full month gone with my blog already, with many fun challenges, and many more to which I didn't have a change to participate.

The latest Art Impressions challenge - southern style - took a bit of thinking again. And that is exactly why I love the challenges, you have to think outside of the usual card making - and in the process your cards get new tones.

This time the thinking was mainly around not having any suitable stamps for the challenge, until I realized that a bit of tuning of the image is of course allowed. Thus, I made the hats for the BBQ Couple (Art Impressions, of course) southernizing them for the purpose.

Hand made cards

As per usual, I coloured the image with Distress Inks and Markers. The background paper is from the Best Creation Inc. Barbeque Collections.

I submit the card to the Art Impressions Southern Style challenge. Take a look at the awesome cards the DT made again using the new Zoo Crew stamps. I can't wait till the Long Horn Set is available in Finland!
