July 2020 - Do What Makes You Happy

Welcome to our July Challange, chosen by the Lovely Sue - Do More Of What Makes You Happy - Use your happy colours, favourite stamps etc

Good morning and welcome to July. We've all had a really tough few months, so for my challenge I'm asking you to do more of what makes you happy. This could be a favourite stamp, or colour, or in my case it's attending a crafty class (in this instance an online tutorial) and learning something new.

This is my Dad's Father's Day card which was inspired by a Graphic 45 tutorial. If you would like to pop over to my blog here there are lots more photos (including a few really bad ones lol) Take care and have a great month x 

Summer really is in full swing now and one of the things that makes me very happy is sitting in my outside studio creating and being inspired by the hot colours in my garden. I also love working with alcohol inks and this is the technique I have chosen to share today for the challenge together with my favourite stamp brand, Visible Image. I have made a card for my husband as our 39th wedding anniversary on the 25th July.
If you would like to see how I achieved this very organic background for my card, all is revealed over on my blog here.
Have a wonderful summer,
Stay safe and stay creative,

For our July challenge, I created a card with Tim Holtz's products
 because these are the things I love.

If you like my card and need a tutorial, please visit my blog!

Hello there - there are two things about making this card that make me happy - using a newly learned background technique - and using a never before inked up stamp.....find out more over on my blog here. Have a great day!
