Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #204 Get Inky/Messy

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #204
Chanya is hosting the second challenge of  2018 and  the theme is Inky/Messy This can include messy paint items and  sprays etc. I choose to use ink and a Stampin Up  stamp set called Gorgeous Grunge. The butterfly is from a Marianne Designs die (LR0114).  I added some of the circles that fell out from the butterfly die cut onto the card face. The ink and paper are Stampin Up's Pacific Point.  I used Memento Black ink for some of the stamped  'blobs'. I used a background stamp for the scratchy looking background paper.

Please come and join in the fun, always great to get a bit messy.

Bugaboo Day 5 Holiday Chaos 2017 - Humour Me Wed.

Bugaboo Day 5  - Holiday Chaos 2017-  Humor Me Wed. at Catch the Bug Challenge Blog

Here it is day 5 already. The Catch the Bug challenge today is to make something with humour in it. Hope I succeeded with this poor doggy and his attempt to join the reindeer pulling Santa's sled. He does look a little forlorn does he not.

I used a Bugaboo image called 'Puppy - enough reindeer'. He is just so cute and the fun sentiment is part of the set. The large white snowflake is 'Impression Obsession DIE024-X'. The sentiment tag  holder from Spellbinders 'Fancy Tags' and the background was embossed with  Stampin' Up's Falling Snowflakers embossing folder. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the  fancy strip  behind the image.
