Challenge #Flowers  http://inasweetpeadreamchallengeblog.blogspot.com/ 





For this project I used my first Sweet pea stamp and I love them they are beautiful and easy to colour.  I coloured this image with copics and used a glitter pen for the sparkle.  I added stickles to the flower as you can't have a fairy without glitter.  (The glue is still wet in this photo)



The backing papers were from Quitoxic Paperie and Create and Craft.  I used Nestilbilities to cut the aperture, then two of them together to cut the frame to fit.


I used Magnolia dies for the flower (doily and snowflake) and a Marianna die for the foliage, adding a couple of pearl for the final embellishments.

The stamps were from Crafters Companion.  I used two of the stamps to create main image and coloured with copics, adding some stickles glitter glue to emphasise the snow and fur trims of the little boy.

Dies used - Magnolia (snowflake)
Marianne (tree and flower)


The backing papers were also from Marianne, Crafters Companion and Quitoxic Paperie.

I added a couple of pearls to finished the project and balance the card design.

For this project I used a stamp from LOTV and coloured with copics.  I have had a bit of a run on monochrome (browns) as I think they look vintage and I like the sepia look at the moment.  I think the browns work best as the skin tones are brown tones too.


The papers were from Quitoxic Paperie and some brown cardstock from Gina K.

I kepted this project simple and just added some flowers, foliage (Magnolia die) and pearls.

BIRTHDAY



For this project I used another of my new stamps from LOTV and coloured with copics.  I used a fine liner pen for the border which I like doing.


The backing papers were from Quitoxic Paperie and Create and Craft.  The sketch was from Cute Thursday.

And finally I added a few heart embellishments.
