ELSIE

Challenge #Sketch  Everybody Art Challenge
Challenge #Pink Breast Cancer  StampandCreate                          



For this project I used a stamp from Sugar Nellies called "Elsie" from the Home Grown stable.  I coloured her with copics, a glitter and a gel pen.

I used the sketch from Everybody Art Challenge and the colour scheme and theme were to support breast cancer.  I think this card is uplifting  and would show you cared especially as there are hearts on the backing paper, dress and also she's holding a heart.  (Heart signifies love).



The backing papers were from the Stitchy Bear and I did it Creations Crafting Boutique, Crafters Companion and I've forgotton the other one.

I also used a Cuttlebug folder for the embossed polka dots on the frame which was cut with a Nellies die and a Cuttlebug die for the decorative corners.



MERMAID

Challenge #Sketch  Everybody Art Challenge



For this project I used one of the stamp I have in my collection from Papillo and coloured her with copics.  I also used a glaze pen for the jewellery beads, a glitter pen for the shimmer and some stickles on the fins and tail.

The papers were some that were off a CD Rom although I can't remember which one and some raffia ribbon.  I used the sketch from Everybody Art Challenge for inspiration and decorated with



flat back pearls, raffia bow, flowers and beads.

WILLOW WITH COOKIES

Challenge #Sketch  Midnight Madness
Challenge #Stitch it up  Wildorchid


For this project I chose to look through some of the Whiff of Joy stamps I have but haven't used and this was the one I picked.  It is called  "Willow with Cookies " and I coloured with copics and used a fine liner for the border faux stitching effect.

I used the sketch from Midnight Madness and the backing papers were from the Stitchy Bear and I did it Creations Crafting Boutique.

I used a Marianne die to cut the flourishes and another die for the corner frame.  Embellishment were flat back pearls and a flower from Wildorchid.
