Kazan sketch 18

I love Kazan's sketch on 2s4u this week. As soon as i saw it i knew what i wanted to do with it. I just used Cream CS with a took of milk chocolate brown and using Archival Brialliance Lightening black ink (which is more of a bronze colour) I used the stamps that came with this months papercraft inspirations to make this card.
The photo isn't very good as i just couldn't get the lighting right to show it off to it's best and you can't see the georgeous sheen of the ink on the card.
It is a very simple card but very effective when the light catches it. I may have to try taking another pic tomorrow when the light is a lot better.

Mothers Day 2

This card is made using the sketch over at Roses on Paper and i thought it was perfect for a mothers day card Main DP hand made paper. Other DP freebie from a magazine. Flowers and beads from my stash

Mothers Day

I have made my first mothers day card of the year and now i have got most of the valentines day cards made i thought i'd better get started on these. I have made this card for the Sketch and Stash challenge where you use your new or never used (or neglected) stash on your cards and let them know what these items are. Well I went through my drawers an found this topper that i had bought a few of last year and forgotten i had and the backing paper is some i printed off when i first started cardmaking (think it was from the canon site). I decided to give the card a rustic look by distressing and tearing the papers as i thought this went well with the topper. Finished off with copper brads I'm really happy with the way it has turned out.


The Challenge this week on A Spoonful of Sugar is to create a card for a New Baby, Mum-to-be, New Mum or Pre-schooler.
The challenge in PW this week is to use 3 shapes on your card or project.
and the sketch on Mojo Monday has just that 3 shapes so i used that as my sketch.
