This card is for the following challenges this week- Passion for Promarkers (Sugar Rush), Polkadoodles (Flower Power), Crafty Sentiments (Birthday) and Sarah Hurley (4 Legged Friends).
I started by stamping the mice image using Joanna Sheen Housemouse stamps. I coloured in using an array of promarkers, I then cut it out with nestabilities and distressed the edges to give a misty feel. I then embossed a sheet of Coredinations whitewash and sanded back. I then mounted these onto some green backing paper that looked like it had been painted (by me by the brush strokes in it!). I then cut out using Xcut die the flowers in yellow vellum and white felt. I finished off the flowers with flat back pearls and added some to the corner of the embossed paper. I added a self adhesive ribbon down the side and added the sentiment. I hope you like it.
This card os for Moving Along with the times challenge, this weeks theme 'Anniversary'. I stamped the flourish with versamark and used mica powders to give a subtle hint. Added the topper and sentiment.
This card is for Rainbow Lady's (Mardi Gras) and One Stitch at a Time (Use a charm).
As this is "Fat Tuesday" or Shrove Tuesday festival celebrated in New Orleans I used a Jazz theme to represent it. I used alcohol inks to make the base/backing sheet, various KanBan elements that fitted the bill and stamped some Tim Holtz elements to add further interest. I added the saxophone and treble cleff charms to represent the music that comes from that area of America.Hope you like them.
