World Card Making Day - take two

Here I am back with a few more card I've made for WCMD challenges.

First up is a card for two challenges... StampNation challenge # 4  Scotland


I used some Winnie & Walter stripe stamps to make my own plaid background.  I cut the panel with a MFT die and then split it to fit onto the card base.  Used a feebie die from last year and added a little holly embellishment, I made with a Kaisercraft stamp.  Very CAS.  Entered into the Masculine challenge at Winnie & Walter.

Next one was for StampNation challente #5 Japan. - inspired by flower and Kimonos

I was inspired by the pretty pinks and flowers on the kimonos.  Used  an Altenew stamp (Fresh Freesias) and watercoloured with Zig Clean Color markers.  The background was a variety of sprays.  Used a die cut and sentiment from
Winnie & Walter.  I've also entered this into the challenge at Winnie & Walter - Watercolouring

and today I manged one more card for StampNation challenge #8 - France -inspired by brocade


I used the free embossing folder I got last week with some Red Memento ink so do a faux letterpress technique.  The sentiment is from a free set with a magazine.  It's such a great way to build up your supplies!  I used some Spellbinders dies to cut the sentiment.

And here's a picture of what my desk looked like yesterday evening.


One hot mess!  But the result of a fun few days.

Now only 4 more StampNation challenges to make to do all of them.  I've already started on #6  Australia - inspired by Aborginal art.   Then it's Malaysia,  Germany, and Israel.  We've got a few more days to enter.

Dawn these are some wonderful cards - love the 'Scots' inspired one, and the freesia is beautifully coloured. That ef is proving to be very versatile!
