Creatalicious Challenge #1

Creatalicious_Challenge#1 have their first challenge up and running!
It is Fathers Day next month in Australia so we need make something for dad, it can be anything and it does not have to be specifically for Father's just need to include the colour brown and some metal on your creation.
I was so impressed with the first entry, submitted by Sue, that I went here to see the instructions for this type of card. I have never tried anything like this before, so I thought I would give it a go.
so here is what I made!
Cardstock/papers: Brown bazzil, double-sided patterned paper
Gold stickers & sentiment, metal tools
Forever Friends image coloured with watercolour pencils, pewter paint used on some of the tools

The metal tools are quite heavy & make the card a bit unbalanced ;-(

I may have to rethink this one!

Here is a nice shot from an angle - shows the depth of the card a bit better.

I really enjoyed making up this card - the instructions are exceptional!

Thanks to Creatalicious for the challenge and special thanks to Sue for posting her card and sharing the instructions.


  1. This is fantastic Cathy,what a cute little image and love your little tools!!! Thanks for joining in on our first challenge and hope to see you back at Creatalicious next month!!

  2. I was really impressed with this technique too Cathy and can't wait to try it out for myself - you've done a fantastic job with it and reinforced my own need to give it a go!! I love your card, it's so perfectly balanced, and seeing that deckled Nestie had made me want them even more!! Thank you for taking up the challenge and for your inspiration! :o) xx

  3. This is really cute! Love your embossing and the little metal tools, great card!

  4. Hi Cathy,
    You've been inspired & the results are great! Love the image you chose & coloured so beautifully. I think those embellishments are perfect. Thanks so much for joining us at Creatalicious Challenges this month.
    Hugs, Andie xx

  5. Great card those little embellishments.

  6. Wow you did a great job with this card design, I tried it and messed it up! LOL. I did see another design similar but it had a small 1cm fold in the middle instead of just the single fold. Helped with the Squash effect.
    Hey - SU! has a cool stamp set of tools - might be a lot lighter lol! Just joking.
    Love it.
