Crafts 4 Eternity - Easy Rider .....

This card is for Crafts 4 Eternity.  For Recipe 30 there is a sketch to follow, the content should depict a film, and there should be some corrugated card on it.

If this card is not 'legal' then please ignore it!  There is no stamping on it.  I have made a montage of photos as the background, and then one as the central image which I feel really depicts that film.  There are couple of bellies from the lovely Tim Holtz, and some appropriate brads.  I have used some blingy cardstock, as bling often features in some way in this business.

I spent hours debating what to do.   I then decided that as I had masses of photos of the custom motorbikes that my very talented son, Richard, builds - he runs his own business building custom bikes of the very expensive variety. He also restores classic motorbikes.  They are a perfection in engineering and absolutely beautiful, but riding a chopper is somewhat hairy, although some others are much easier.

So I chose the cult film, Easy Rider from 1969.    Some of you may remember it!!

Rain, rain , go away ... and some spring colours

My first challenge for a while, and it currently represents was is happening here.  However, it has been lovely these last few days just being able to relax in the garden in the sun, with everything springing into life around me.

This card is being entered into the following challenges:

- Whiff of Joy Challenge, no. 76, which has a sketch from the very talented Bev

- Quixotic Challenges, and they are asking entries to Make a Splash

- Our Creative Corner, lots of Blooming Blossoms

- The Creative Cottage Challenge, Going Green - well there's lots of this!

- Rainbow Lady's Challenge, 100 - April Showers

The image is Whiff of Joy, Willow in the Rain. I have coloured with Copics, but I am not too happy with my blending this time around. Probably out of practice a bit. The cardstock us Bazzill Bling, and the papers are the lovely Basic Grey Kyoshi - there are so many different colourways. Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, with leaves punched from various punches, with stickles used to add an itty bitty sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate your comments.

Sorry I have been away for so long ....

The last few weeks have been really crap for me, and blogging and card making has just not been there, although I have visited quite a number of bloggers and left comments. It is lovely to see all the work that has been going on everywhere.

Anyway, hopefully I am coming through this black phase, and it is now pale grey, or even slightly sunny, and I will start getting some stuff done again, especially as I have quite a few new stamps, papers and others bits and pieces that need to be put to good use.

See you all soon.
