Happy Birthday

A summery card - inspired by the sun that we have had this week.  I'm hoping that it sticks around for a while to dry up my head cold.   As it is the middle of winter, I might just be being a bit too optimistic!

CRAFT Challenge - Summer

I have used a paper, arrow  and a sentiment from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  The image is from All Dressed Up.  Colouring is with copic markers - I picked up some of the colours from the background paper.  I also added some ribbon and some shell embellishments.  Matting is pearlescent paper.

When I saw this image, I knew I wanted to do a canvas rather than a card this month.  It gave me a good opportunity to bring out some stash that I hadn't used in a while too.

I would like to enter:
The Outlawz Progressive Freebie Challenge -

I have used a blank mini canvas.  I added a pattern using a stencil from Tim Holtz and Nuvo Glitter Paste.  I then added a gold ribbon.  I sprayed so Magic Mesh with some Dylusions Ink and added this at an angle.  I then added some gold flakes, pearls, acrylic paint from Art Alchemy and some clear translucent glass beads.  I also added some embellishments that i created using silicone moulds and resin.  I added a string of pearls around her neck.


This one could be for a wedding or a wedding anniversary.

Gatefold Window Card

We have had a bit of mixed weather lately, so I have had a bit of time to craft.  I'm particularly enjoying the challenge of incorporating all the elements in the Butterfly Challenge.  This month it was the letter G.

I would like to enter:
Butterfly Challenge - Letter G

I have once again managed to use all seven elements.   I have the green apple gingham paper on the inside and outside of the card.  The gems and butterfly are both on the outside of the gatefold card.  Although there is also a butterfly in the image that I used.  The card base is gun metal cardstock and the flowers in the image as well as the butterfly embellishment are gold.  The image is from Delicious Doodles.  Colouring is with copic markers.

I have followed a tutorial from Beccy's Place for a Gatefold Window Card.
