Blog Challenges 5

Hello again! Back for more challenges this week, and here they are!

Passion for Promarkers.  Apologies for another House Mouse image, but I am a bit addicted to these at the moment. I stamped the image and coloured with promarkers, die cut using nesties scalloped circlesn then mounted onto die cut mirri board circles. Backed a 6" sqaure card blank with a K+Co 12X12 paper cut to fit. I added the sentiment from a pack from Hunky Dory.


Sarah Hurley, Rainbow Lady and Crafty Sentiments. I backed an A5 scalloped edge card blank with a 12X12 paper, cut to fit. I used Black Magic Coredinations with a pink core and embossed with swirl design that I then sanded back. Wrapped a fluffy fibre around the matt. Stamped the House Mouse Image and die cut it using nesties, coloured the image with promarkers. I added the sentiments to complete the card.



MAWTT this card was made for the dad of a lady at work as a get well card. He is having a big operation soon and he has a passion for all things nautical. I used a La Pashe Framin' card kit so he has something to keep until he's fed up of it. I covered the aperture with acetate to give it more of a picture feel.


Polkadoodles - I really struggle to come up with ideas at times and when the theme black n white was mentioned I went straight to my music themed stash. As I grew up the daughter of a Beatles fan I have been a fan of heirs all my life and just thought this image stood out. I also added a logo from their record label for the added colour of choice, hence the green apple.


I stamped the "laydee" onto an A6 postcard blank. Coloured in with pencils. Glittered the feathers n frills. Added a gem to the hat and for her earring.
Used a Martha Stewart punch for two corners and a small rounder for the other two. Backed an A5 card blank added topper, sentiment and border peel off.


Thanks for stopping by!
