Pink Bee Fairy



Its challenge time at Through the Craft Room Door and as usual it's anything goes.

The image is from Stitchy Bear and I have coloured it with Graph'it Markers
I have then die cut the image and frame using Spellbinders Dies.



I have cur the swirly borders using a Memory Box die and added some paper roses and punched leaves. A little bit of glitter highlight the wings and edge the flowers. Then a simple birthday greeting to complete.

Pretty Miss India


Welcome to the last Challenge at the Crafting Cafe and the theme is 
Your favourite things of 2014.

I've used 2 or 3 of my favourite things on this card so it was quite fun to do.


Firstly I have coloured in the image with my polychromos pencils. Although I have had them for quite a while I have only relly got back to using them this year and I have really enjoyed that. The image is a Besties.


Some of my favourite colours are oranges and golds, warm autumn colours I have used for the background.


Then some very pretty embelishments. A punched border in gold, a tassled brocade trim, some sequined shapes and a lovely bow with a metal flower in the centre. They looked very Indian type decoration and perfect to complete this card. I hope you like it too.

The back ground has been stamped and coloured with distress inks, using swirl and butterfly stamps. 
There are die cut leaves and hearts, also I have die cut the image and layer.

Africa


It's time for a new challenge at Through the Craft Room Door and this is my project. The image is from Little Claire one of our sponsors for this week.


For the background I have used Bo Bunny Zebra patterned paper and the image has been die cut with a Creative Expressions frame die.


I have then die cut lots of leaves and grasses using dies from Memory box, Marianne, 
I think it makes quite a striking card in black and white. 
It's always Anything Goes for the TTCRD challenge so please join in and you may win a nice prize.

Beary Blue


This weeks new Challenge at Graph'it Markers is Blue and Green.
I'm not sure about this combination, as the saying goes, blue and green should never be seen. But it could grow on me. 


I've used the Polka Doodles image Winston Bear with his little heart, He's very cute, makes a lovely new baby boy card I though. I've used a patterned backing paper with glittery butterflies on it,


Then a few embellishments which are polka dot ribbon, a lovely feather, a flower and a few gems. Please join in our challenge I would love to see your creations with this colour combo, and you could win a great prize.
