Blast from the past at CYP!

I am seriously dragging my tail yet again. This week I am hoping to get on top of things with the boys being at kinder and school for a full week...Todays'challenge at Craft your Passion is Blast from the Past - so pick a challenge that CYP have run over the last year and use that theme (But NOT an Anything Goes challenge)!! We are sponsored by Kenny K , DRS Designs, Stitchy Bear and The Robin's Nest for this challenge.. I made two cards and both of them are CAS because I made them after being at a wedding and having a few alcoholic beverages.. But I think they are ok! :)
My first card is using a Kenny K image - Rock Chick
Now this card really is CAS! The "brick" paper is from Fab Scraps which I distressed around the edges and tore it on the side, I then printed the graffiti onto it which was a digi from Beyond the Fringe Crafts... I then coloured Rock Chick in with Tria markers and popped her up on 3D dots and tada card complete!! I actually love the way it turned out!! I did try to add some embellishments but it just didn't look right!!

For this second card I used the sentiment "Bad Day Fishing"from Floppy Latte.
I had a few images I could have used for this but the way Edwin is sitting I thought this one matched the sentiment the best!! So I found the this blue card already folded ready to be used!! I found some brown and orange scraps of CS, sat Edwin (who was coloured with Tria markers) on top of his log and placed him on top of the CS!!! I then stamped some fish around the rest of the space on the blue CS and added the "bubbles". I think this one turned out ok too but would not recommnd making cards after drinking for a few hours :)
If you haven't already come from the CYP blog then head on over there to seee what the rest of the DT have created and don't forget to come back on Friday for our Blog Hop!!!


  1. These are both wonderful Alethea! I love the first one the backing paper is stunning. The sentiment on the second made me chuckle. Have a wonderful week.

  2. Love both your cards Leath, the brick wall looks awesome as does your colouring of course!!!

  3. Both cards turned out wonderful! Love the combination of background brick, graffiti, and the Kenny K image. All of the distressing adds great detail. The second card is sweet. Love the pairing of Edwin and the fun sentiment. The little fish on the blue paper make me smile.

  4. Both cards are fabulous. The backgound with the bricks is great. And Edwin fisching is also gorgeous.

  5. What a cool idea to print the graffiti on top of the brick paper! That looks great! And I agree, it would not look right with a lot of embellishments or bling. Well done Alethea!
