Wings- aspoonfulofsugar

this will be the first time i have entered this challange.....loved this image from papershelter.

coloured in using promarkers and copics [ spica pens are mynew toy i brought the other day] i have matted and layered him onto both black card stock and a purple Lizard effect paper from a bargain buy at 'Boyes' last year...loved the scales and new it would come in handy for the right card

the purple daisys are from a ribbon roll from QVC and just cut intoindividuals centrered with white pearls,black card candy and a plain satin bow

papertake- pastels

i kinda lost my mojo when i was doing this card [due to a stinking headache]-i'm not happy with it but given the effort i put into making the roses i shall enter it on that basis alone....]

i used a free image of a baby in a bath....i wanted to keep it to a gentle pink theme by colouring in using promarkers, and just using pink card stock as backround layering... i kept embelishment simple using card cany in co ordinating pink and blue to go with the bubbles

white on white - Kenny k girlz

This is my take on this weeks challange-i wasn't sure i could make this week as i was limited [as i am sure thatwas the whole idea,to stretchhhh the imagination]

i have used 'Queens cutie' image and shaded in using warm grey1 in promarkers as with her hair which was a ginger

i have mounted her onto aan embossed topper and die cut the oval shape aroung the image.-[which just fitted as i hadnt measured and i fell lucky with the printed size.

the flowers i made using scraps of printer paper,the leaf is from a cricut cartridge and the ribbon at a bargain from 'the works' at only a pound......wanted more ;but that was the last one[umphhh]

distress/funny caption/animals

this card will be entered in the foloowing challanges

papershelter-ditress to impress

ilovepromarkers -Animals


i have used a freebie stamp from Tiddlyinks,and kept the card quiet simple by using scraps of card and paper from previous projects.[my aim to use my surlus stash of cut offs and left overs on challanges!!!!! we will see how i go on that one]

coloured him in promarks in warm greys,and used a deep brown brilliance ink pad for the ditressing look-the sentiment is one i just typed in at the bottom of the card stock when printing my stamps [great way of utilising as much paper]

three challanges -one card

this is the card i am using for -Papertake,floral challange and aspoonfulofsugar,anything goes,craftycreations,flowers

i have used emerald Faeries'Ally' image as she is sitting on a flower, and i wanted to keep to a green and pink theme.

i have used the dotty backing paper from 'Minds eye' [goes well for green and pink] matted it onto card stock from stash.
topped that with a pink co ordinations run through the embosser [just love this image for this card]
and distressed in green 'brillance-ivy' ink pad.
my ally image is backed by a scrap of co ordinations and the swirlsa re cut fronm the cricut, and the flowers are hand made then lightly pressed into a glue -inkopad and sprinkled with super fine glitter to give a little twinkle.

[i've been in a bit of a pickle this week with challanges as i seem to have wrote down ones to enter that doesnt seem to exist????- maybe my mind playing tricks on me, or been around to much craft glue:-0
