Green With Envy


I'm entering in a card to the Just us Girls Challenge No 250 which is Turquoise Green and Lime.

                                        Here are the colours..
And here is the card..

There are a lot more elements to this card than I normally would include, but when I was nearing completion I realised it just works for me. I like the female and male components like the soft curve and feathers with the sharp edged cogs that are weaved in between the straight black uprights.
I dunno, what do you think?

Jug's New Word Challenge "Bird"


Well I'll be! My Blogger has been down for a good 2 weeks and now, all of a sudden it's back up and running. How frustrating.

Oh well, I'm here to tell you about my entry into this weeks new challenge at Just us girls, which is the word challenge. They have chosen "bird" so I am entering the card below.

These are hand drawn birds, coloured using mont marte pastel pencils and the 3 layers of backing papers which depict the earth, grass and sky are from my stash. Inside I have repeated the 3 layers for continuity and it says "Fly up and party down"

Hope you like it.
