Challenge #103  Lace  http://cupcakecraftchallenges.blogspot.com/
Challenge #116 Let's get Sketchy   http://aspoonfullofsugarchallenge.blogspot.com/

For this project I used another stamp I have from the Precious Moments Collection.  The image was coloured with copics and I used gel and glitter pens for embellishments - such as hair clips, circles on trousers and flowers on clothing.  I used a fine liner pen for border.

The papers were left over bits from other projects.  I added lace, paper flowers, gems and pearl ribbon to embellish card.

The sketch was from A spoonful of sugar

Challenge # Embossable  http://ourcreativecorner6.blogspot.com/

For this project I used a stamp I've had for a while but not used.  I can't remember the name of them only that they are done in the style of the "Love Is" characters that were popular in the 1970's.

I used copic pens to colour this image and used a purple/pink glitter pen for the hearts on the girl's dress and hair ribbons.  I used a blue gel pen for the hair clip on the other girl's hair. A fine liner was used to create the faux stitching.

The papers were from Bells Ballet CD Rom.  I chose check and floral pattern papers for this project and I used two Cuttlebug folders to emboss the corners and middle section.

Challenge #71 Lilac and Blue  http://stampwithfun.blogspot.com/

For this project I used a Christine Haworth stamp - she has done many paintings which have been made into stamps and ornaments.

Here's the version I did using watercolouring paper

I used a blue distressing ink pad and used a wet paint brush to create effect.  I cut the image topper at an angle and edged with faux stitching using a fine liner pen.  The backing papers were from Belles Ballet CD Rom and Crafters Companion.

I added some pearl gems to complete project.
