The Craft Barn and Index Cards

Hello Everyone

I hope I find you well, and managing to stay warm or cool, wherever you maybe. We have been enjoying some seasonal weather and with much needed rain, mainly at night time, making sleep a little more comfortable. 

Today we have more index cards to share with you, but first of all I would like to share my July page for The Craft Barn's Calendar Challenge.

The two words we have to use in on our page this month are
Turquoise and Beach Huts

Because I want to use my Gelatos on all my pages, I wondered what I would do about the colour, so I looked up how to create the colour turquoise, and after mixing Butter cream & Cotton Candy, I was very happy with the resultant colour.  
I drew my bunting and beach hut with pencil then went over it with a silver pen. When that was dry I coloured everything with my turquoise mix. I then added the words, washi tape, the month and days of the week. Et voila!
If you would like to see what others created for this month, then simply click on the Calendar Challenge link above and you will be whisked away to lots more beaches.


Now here we have days 33 and 34 of my and Wee Man's index cards.
Day 33 from Wee Man
was created with a large XCut butterfly punch, some Wink of Stella to colour their wings and some small stamps in the background.
My Day 33
'I Love Lucy' drawn with Pitt pens and coloured with pencil crayons.
Day 34 from Wee Man
is Happy Teddy Bears, punched from a paint chip strip.
Day 34 from me
was created with used postage stamps and Wishing a safe and Happy Independence Day to all my friends who celebrate it.

Until next time
Take care, be happy.

And Wee Man of course :D
