Love is...

Oh haven't I been a busy girl today. Here is another card and this time for the Dottie's World challenge. The Theme this week is Love is... So I decided as I was on a roll with my christmas cards I would use the Dottie and George christmas collection. I have 3D'd the christmas tree up to givwe it a bit of depth and added lots of glittery bits with my sakura clear stardust pen (what would I ever do without it). The backing paper is Dovecraft winter wonderland.

Yet another card for 2 challenges. The sketch is 2 sketches for you, Bonus sketch and on PTW we have a choice of 2 challenges Firsts - first birthday, Christmas, anniversary etc OR No Stamping! - embellishments, papers, die cuts, paper folding, stitching, encaustic, doodling? etc etc.
I chose to go with the First anniversary card. Now on this card I played about with a few techniques. First I scored my cardstock with 3 lines to mimic the sketch. I then puched out a circle and cut out a scalloped edged strip from brown cs and using my brilliance Lightning Black inkpad i inked up them up. this gave them a lovely hammered copper look. I stammped the sentiment and hand painted the swirl in the same in and allso brushed the edges of some more brown cs to matt the top layer onto. The glass image from mary hughs was stammed in the same ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder. I then filled this all in with crystal laquer to make them look like glass.
I hope you like it

Shabby Chic

Here I am again working 2 challenges into one. The sketch is 2 Sketches for You Laura's sketch 10. And on Ooh-la-la creations challenge this week the challenge is Shabby Chic.
For this card I used Cream carstock and distressed the edges with Color Box copper ink. I used a Cream mulberry paper for the background distessing the edges with my whispers brown marker. The flowers are distressed with my whispers too. K& Co paper is paper pricked and faux stitched and antique lookin lace finishes it off

Pink & Green

A Spoonful of Sugar's challenge this week is to use the colour scheme of pink and green. I love these colours together so I thought I would have a go. And looking through my stamped images I found this one sent to me in a RAK that i had already coloured with my pearly watercolours. The papers are a mixture of freebies from magazines and papers sent in a RAK. Ribbon from my stash bow fixed with a lovely silver flower brad. Green and pink square gems finish it off with a bit of bling
