Just for Fun

With my July workshops over and the girls back at school, I decided to give myself a day of stamping just for fun.

Firstly as I absolutely LOVE the silhouette effect with a brayered background, I got to with the newest member of my stamp "family" (LOL!), Inspired by Nature. I've used More Mustard, Really Rust and a touch of Ruby Red.

Next just had to be a tri shutter card! These are so simple and such fun to make and I wanted to experiment with a bold one for boys as both of the cards I've made so far have been in soft, feminine colours. I'm not completely happy with it, but it will do; sometimes you just gotta lump it, eh?!

Lastly, this chicken card is for DD17, who has trial HSC exams coming up soon. It is very much tongue-in-cheek, as you may recall from this post that she is scared of our chickens. (We try not to tease her too much, but sometimes it's eggs-tra difficult not to!!!) She loves blue and brown, so I used the GORJUS new papers from the Spring Mini called Parisian Breeze. I decided to combine it with this week's Mojo Monday sketch, as I haven't done a MM for a while:

Hope she likes it, he he!!!

Well, thanks for dropping by. I hope you've had some fun in your day too.





What a fun card!! I really like your paper choice;)

Beautiful cards Kez and I really hope that DD17 doesn't 'lay an egg' over the card. It's too much fun and a great yolk at her egg-spense!!! (As u may tell...I am slightly sleep deprived...LOL!!). Your use of the brayer is aweinspiring and I am glad you had some quality playtime!! The Tri-shutter rocks with the slightly deeper mid panel!!
