Crafty Bloggers Network Inspiration Mondays

It's inspiration Monday at The Crafty Bloggers Network Challenge Blog, why not pop over and take a look at the DT cards and maybe join in our challenge with the chance to win some lovely digi images from Elisabeth Bell.

For my DT card I chose to use this cute Elisabeth Bell digi image.   The greeting and imaged were printed directly onto a white linen square card, the image was printed again onto white linen card, coloured with Promarker pens, cut out and mounted over the printed image on the card.

This is a second card using another Elisabeth Bell image.  Using a soft textured card I printed the image and greeting directly onto the card.  The beach huts were stamped onto the card and coloured with distress inks, the sky and sand were coloured using a blending tool and more distress inks.  The little girl in green was cut round using a craft knife and the card folded in half to make a square card and then the front folded back on itself  to make a Z fold card with the little girl popping out as if walking towards the huts.

You can  pop over and take a look at what the other DT members have done with these stamps HERE, there will be another inspiration Monday on the 18th and 25th of February and the challenge is open until  the end of the month so why not and come join in the challenge.

Wow Sylv, these are absolutely fabulous.....Love the clean lines of the first one, but the second is brilliant too. Love all the background and how you've cut out the little girl. Very clever xxx

I love these cards! Firstly, I love the colours you've used - so refreshing at this time of year. I love that you've kept them simple and not over-embellished. The way you've combined the Beach Huts stamp with the Elizabeth Bell stamp works really well and the the cutting and folding of that card is really skilled. Lots of inspiration to be drawn from these!

Oh....and Best wishes for a Happy Birthday.
