Happy Birthday

This is the second card recently that I have used a pink colour scheme.  I don't usually craft in pink but for some reason at the moment that is the colour that is speaking to me!

I have used two papers from Rosie's Studio.  The image is from Crafty Sentiments and the sentiment is one that I typed on my computer  Colouring is with copic markers and Wink Of Stella.

This is inspired by the song "Piano Man" by Billy Joel.  I took inspiration from the reference to the gin and tonic:

I have used a music themed paper.  I sprayed a doily with Dylusions Spray to place under the drink - as they would be in a bar.  The image is from Sheepski Designs and the sentiment is a digital sentiment I printed out some time ago (no sure of the source of this one).  I added some splashes of water in the form of gemstones.

Merry Christmas

This week at CHNC, our challenge is Anything Goes with an optional twist which is to include embossing - wet or dry.

I have used an embossing folder to create some dry embossing on my card.  The image and sentiment are from Bugaboo Stamps.  Colouring is with copic markers and Kindy Glitz.  I used some offcut pieces for the pennants and the bottom piece of the card.  I added some silver glitter ribbon over the join between the embossed piece and the patterned paper.

Merry Christmas

In nine days it is meant to be Spring here yet the weather still feels like the middle of winter.  I'm hoping that this is a last hurrah to winter and come September the temperatures will pick up and we'll have less thunderstorms and rain.  In the meantime, it is perfect weather for cardmaking.

I have used a paper from a christmas paper pad.  The image is from Di's Digi Downloads and the sentiment is from QKR Stampede.  Colouring is with copic markers, Wink Of Stella and Kindy Glitz.  The Wink of Stella and Kindy Glitz were used on the background paper to give it a bit more dimension.  I added some more circles in the form of button embellishments.
