BETSY

Challenge #Sketch  The Pixie Cottage
Challenge #Birthdays  The Sister Hood of Crafters

Challenge #All about the girls  Digital Tuesday

Challenge #Happy Birthday  Totallypapercrafts
Challenge #Flower power  Scrappy Frogs

For this project I used a digi stamp from the Stitchy Bear and I did it Creations Crafting Boutique called "BETSY" and coloured her with copic pens.

I used the sketch from the Pixie Cottage challenge and papers were a mixture of Cardstock and papers from my crafting stash.  I used a doily die from Crafts U love to cut the circle and embellished with ribbon, flowers and brads.


Head over heels

Challenge #Quote me happy  Fab n Funky

For this project I chose a silhoutte image which I think is adorable from the Stitchy Bear and I did it Creations Crafting Boutique.

I stamped the wording around the edge of the silhoutte and sprayed varnish over the top to seal the black ink and give a shinny effect.  I also used a navy copics pen to create the edging to blend in with the backing papers.
The corner frames which created using a Cuttlebug and dies.  I copied and pasted a ballon to make three and coloured with copics and added glossy accents to them.  I also added some letters to spell out - Head over heels ov-er  you.

The pattern paper was also from the Stitchy Bear..... and finally I added a flower.


Broken Strings

Challenge # Music  Crafty Creations
Challenge # Anything goes  Secret Crafters
Challenge # Stitching  Sweet Stamping


For this project I used a digi stamp from the Stitchy Bear and I did it Creations Crafting Boutique called "Broken Strings" - love this image.

I coloured with copics and used a gel pen for shoes and gold pen for broken strings.  I made the background by using a violin stamp I have and embossing with gold embossing powder.  Oh and I used a fine liner for the faux stitching effect.

And that was it - quite a simple card but I like it.
