Allsorts - Faux stitching

I have used a hero arts cling flower which i stamped and embossed on a piece of card coloured with pro-markers. I have used the same stamp and versamark to create a background with Mica Powders. I have layered the main image onto a piece of card with faux stitching and added a pearly butterfly.

Penny Black Challenge - Browns

This weeks challenge is to use browns. I have used papers from the basic grey wisteria collection. I have overstamped one paper using a penny black paisley swirls stamp and the stickeroo is also penny black. I have added some e-line flowers, brown card candy, punched pieces and a piece of lace have finished it off.

Penny Black Challenge - Buttons

This weeks challenge is to use buttons!

Allsorts Challenge - Petals and Pearls

A new card style for me. I have stamped the background with versamark and used mica powders. The main flower has been embossed with clear powder and coloured in promarkers, i have then layered up clear emobissing powders and cracked a bit to distress it slightly and then added some rafia, pearly pins and some pearl accents throughout. The stamp is a hero arts cling,

Allsorts challenge - no design papers

This challenge was almost as distressing as the no rubber stamp challenge :o(, i have realised that i love design papers!

However i have been brave and made a mosaic background with cuttle bug embossed squares of card. The stamp is from lili of the valley and i think they make a sweet fairy couple!



Magnolia Folds Challenge

This weeks challenge is folds so i have had a go at a springy diamond card. Don't think i will be making any more of these!

The papers are wisteria and i have added some gems and a butterfly.

Penny Black Challenge - Gingham

This weeks challenge is to use Gingham. I have used some penny black spring bunnies and shades of blue. Simple yet effective!

Sir Stampalot Fantasy Challenge

This is a new challenge and the theme is fantasy. Not one i am used too but it did give me chance to try again with my Lavinia Stamps - they always draw me in at the shows and i cannot do them justice and the brayering has never been a success so I sponged distress inks for the background (now have rainbow fingers) and stamped the various elements in versafine and distress inks. I have added some glitter to give a fairy dust sparkle and shrunk a fairy image so she is drifting in the trees. I have layered onto a piece of magnolia paper and jewelled card stock. the silver reindeer is from christmas but seems to add to the mystic fantasy feel! I like the little toadstools the best!
