It's a wonderful world anything goes on TIOT

I am not sure this post will make it onto TIOT as I was late posting, I think the blog gremlin has been around as it would not let me post.  The challenge this week is for it's a wonderful world, and children playing always make me think of that. Please click on picture to enlarge and view.
The stamps are from Lili of the valley  coloured with promarkers.  The papers used are really old ones from my stash.  They were a set of cards I made for a dear friend of my daughters who's a teacher so the picture was taken at her house, so a bunny card has appeared that should  not.  I spent all week end when Dee was away looking for that card as I needed it for someone, I gave up and made another one.
This is the box they were in. the box idea comes from Janet, it's a really useful design.
Have a good week Hugs Bee

The Paperlane Challenge Anything but a card

I really enjoyed making this challenge, the backpack idea is from Splitcoaststampers and the rubber stamp is George the school boy by Molly Bloom,

The back pack is made from 2 pieces of A4 and the paper is a digital download from My Grafico,

I love the stamp and I was able to colour it with just six promarkers colours apart from the skin tones, I used the fine push on nibs for the detail.

Try It On Tuesday challenge using a old stamp not yet used

I realized when Dee looked for stamps me to use for this challenge how many stamps we have that have not been used, I felt quite ashamed and that we need to use them.  The the stamp is from Hampton Art and was bought in the Stamp man shop about 14 years ago and never used because I was scared of it looking unfinished.  I had seen great cards made with the image which I did not think I could match, this is my attempt with encouragement from Dee.

The background has been done using distressed inks, the crackle rubber stamped background is from creative impressions again it's first use. The smaller swirls are the ends of old rub ones and the large swirl is a die cut I bought in a bag of odds and ends.

Try It On Tuesday challenge monochrome

I hope I have this right, I looked monochrome up and it is tones of the same colour in my card that is pink, but I have cheated as I need blush for the arms and legs and I thought the dog would not be good in pink.  I did have a black tonal card but it has disappeared from my photo library and as I gave it as a birthday card last week can't take another picture.
 The card is an easel card, but I have this time just added the image to part of easel upright and I think it looks okay, the paper is from my stash, the sentiment is from a Stampin Up set and the border is made with a Martha Stewart punch.
The image is a stamp  from Lili of the Valley   I used it for a birthday card but it could be used for other types of card.  Thanks for looking have a good week, hugs Bee
