Blog Challenges 8

Back again for more challenges! So here we go........

Passion for Pro Markers - Make your own embellishments.
Rainbow Lady's - Springtime.

I began with some paper flowers that I was playing with cosmic shimmer mists to colour. My OH had an easter egg that had the eggs in a card basket, so guess what! I nicked *ahem* acquired it. This is one end bit. I used some 3D foam tape to attach the flower stems and leaves to the inside. I then layered up the paper flowers to the top of the basket.

Then I left it to solidify!!!! I layered it onto a floral card blank and then onto mirri board. I finished the whole thing off with the sentiment. Here's the clever bit, I used a rose pink promarker onto a clear stamp to get the image of the words so I could then fill them in with the same promarker. (Can't write neat to save my life!)

ABC - S for Sugar and Spice.

I started with a free sheet from a magzine and mounted the cupcake clock onto a self made matt I had played with (mica mist spraying session) it hadn't done what I wanted at the time but new the brown shading would "come in handy".  I then found the sprinkles papers in my stash and mounted this onto a card blank, I then mounted the chocolate cake onto this followeed by the sentiment, mounted on aqua mirri card.

Crafters Companion - Aqua and Brown.
A Spoonful of Sugar - All Creatures great and small.
Lili Of The Valley - Happy Birthday

This card utilises free papers, scraps of mirri board and the happy birthday sentiment.  I backed a card with the aqua free paper, built the twisted pyramage, and mounted that onto aqua mirri board. Stuck onto card, then added a happy birthday sentiment.  Suitable for cowboys young and old.

Hope you like.

Blog Challenges 7

Hello all, back again for some more challenges! So here goes..... :)

This card is for a lady at work who is off on maternity leave soon. I used A3 card to make an A4 card blank so everyone has chance to sign the card!
Using a mix from kits, stamps and promarkers I created this card. This is for the Crafty Sentiments challenge - Glitter and Polkadoodles - Sketch.

This card is for Sarah Hurley - Easter (spring), MAWTT - Sketch and Passion for Promarkers - Yellow & Pink.

I stamped the tulips and the girl tiptoeing through them and coloured with promarkers in pinks, yellows, greens and skin and hair tones. I mounted onto gold pearlescent, I then added a paper n card matt and added the ribbon and setiment. All topped onto a square card.

Rainbow lady - I used the wine buffs kit for this leaving card. I made an easel card blank from lilac card and for the stopper used the wine bottle and some flowers that I had in my stash.

Hope you like!
