Cards for swaps

 This card challenge was to make a card using the Rubber band technique- (Rubber Band technique) as a background. I did this embossing the rubberband image in gold and then shading with various inks. I then cut the paper into strips to use as my background. I thought the background looked a bit bambooey so decided to go for a Japanese sort of theme.
 This is a Criss Cross card (Criss cross card). I loved making this one. I added shells and twine for a beaching feel

Fancy Flap card

Heres another funky kind of card. I had to complete it using a beachy feel and include orange. Most of them covered that. It was quite fun making them, but I ran out of supplies and had to improvise. I would have used more embellishments if I had had them

Cards for the troops

I made a few simple cards for the troops this weekend. I usually make more but instead this time, Im donating some of my crafting things to help. The lovely ladies up in Queensland get together every other month and make cards for the troops but they need supplies so I thought Id add my bits to them this year.
