PaperArtsy Challenge : Dark to Light and Contrasts

The latest challenge at PaperArtsy is Dark to Light and Contrasts.
I am in a lot of pain at the moment, so not able to do much, but I really wanted to join in. So I decided to do a simple card, similar to the one I submitted for the Aqua challenge.
The background is painted with Fresco Acrylic Paint (Eggplant), and I used Lilac on a stamp from EEV02 for the scratchy squares background.
The stencils in the foreground are done in Snowflake and Lilac (just in the centre of the flowers), and I used 008 PA Stencil (JOFY) and 003 PA Stencil (Lin Brown)

PaperArtsy Challenge : Aqua

It's been a while since I last posted!
The current PaperArtsy challemge is Aqua.
My card is inspired by a card Jo Firth-Young made back in 2015 (I save all the posts with pictures I like as inspiration, then just scroll through when I am not sure what I feel like making).
The background is created using Fresco Acrylic Paints, the background stamp is from EEV02, the Stencil is 011 PA Stenceil (JOFY) and the words are from ELB22.

PaperArtsy Challenge : Masks

The challenge over at PaperArtsy is Masks.
My card is inspired by Lin Brown, and uses both masks and stencils.
Background is Fresco Paints. The stamps are JOFY33
I have masked the first flower stamp to stamp the second one "behind" (well really over it), and used JOFY11 Stencil and Claire Lloyd 23 Stencil (with more Fresco Paint) in the background.

PaperArtsy Challenge : Pink and Orange

The new challenges for PaperArtsy have started. This challenge is Pink and Orange. Not two colours I would normally put together!
My inspiration came from Jo Firth Young on the release of her new stamps here.

For the background I used Fresco Paints (Vanilla and Tinned Peas) and the JOFY stencil 008
Then I stamped with JOFY25, 33, 37, 38 and ELB22
I then coloured them in with Fresco Paint (Very Berry, Sherbet, Rose, Butternut, Tango)
