Foiled flowers


It's time for a new challenge over at Stinkin Inkers. The theme this time is anything goes.

I've been playing with Sweet Poppy stencils and foil.


This stencil is called Cornflowers. It's done with stencil paste put through the stencil and when dry foiled using a laminator. 


The foil is turquoise.


I have used shades of turquoise for the background card and paper with a toning ribbon. The sentiment has been stamped and embossed silver. Lastly some turquoise gems.

Well Travelled Owl



New month new challenge over at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies. The image called Horned Owl has been supplied by the very talented team member Donna Ellis.



I've used him to make a mans card, they're a bit harder to come up with ideas for. I've coloured the image using Polychromo pencils and then cut him out.


I've used map patterned paper in the background. The happy Birthday sentiment is die cut. Then a bit of decorative stringy ribbon, not sure how else to discribe it, to finish.

Pop over to the challenge and see all the great card made using this image and maybe join in with a critter card of your own.

A penguin called Fred



This is just so late but the dreaded winter bugs caught up with me.

This is my inspiration for the Challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.

Our sponsor is Jans Digi stamps and this is one of her images called Puttin on the Ritz.


I've coloured this little penguin with Polychromo pencils and added a bit of sparkle to his hat, but thats not easy to see on the photo.


I've die cut the sentiment and punched out some glittery hearts. Just a nice simple design.
