September 2020 Not Just Cards Challenge for the 11th of September, 2020


Not Just Cards is having a new challenge this month. The theme for the September 2020 Challenge is as usual: "ANYTHING GOES".
To join in the fun, click on the following link:

Here is my colouring for this month! As it was so dark, I have placed it on top of our fireplace next to the Mt Barker stone mantlepiece.

I have coloured the June-July 2020 Brighten Your Day Colouring Class from the wonderful Alyce at Kit and Clowder. The stamp is Patch and Puss on the Bench from Lili of the Valley, but I think it is exclusive for members only so you only get access to it through the Kit and Clowder Class. There are a heap of Patch and Puss digi stamps on the Lili of the Valley Etsy Shop website.

Here are the progression shots: 
 





Here are the finished images:

I also tried to use a little easel:

Jodie works hard to provide new releases and freebies every week!

And the prize on offer for our lucky winner is:
$12 gift code to spend in the Bugaboo Stamps store.

I chose Christmas Words - Snow for my image, which I digitally printed on to X-Press It blending card and then cut out using my paper cutter.
