Fabulous You

I was hunting through my sentiments and found this one which I think is just perfect for this particular image!

Penny's Paper Crafty - Anything Goes
http://pennyschallenges.blogspot.co.nz/2017/01/welcome-to-pennys-challenge-312.html

I have used a paper from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  The image is from The Paper Shelter and is coloured with copic markers.  The digital sentiment is one I printed out some time back and was in a box of printed sentiments that I hadn't got around to using.  I thought I knew whose sentiment it was but I can't find it in that folder so I may be incorrect on that!  If anyone recognises it, please leave a comment letting me know whose sentiment it is.  I die-cut a heart from glitter cardstock using a die from Marianne's.  Matting is blue cardstock.  I also added some pearls from Rosie's Studio.

Erhu

My daughter has an interest in musical instruments and was showing me pictures of various instruments.  Among the instruments she was showing me was an erhu.  I immediately recognised it as the instrument in an image I have from Aurora Wings.  I think she was impressed that I had a digital stamp with an erhu in it!

The Road Ahead

We are midway through the challenge at The Path of Positivity and this month the theme is The Road Ahead.  We are sponsored by Ike's Art and Scribbles Designs.




I have used an image from Ike's Art called Book of Dreams.


I also used a notebook that I bought on clearance, some letter stickers to spell out the title, some Angelina Fibre, some buttons that I bought yesterday an a die-cut from a packet of embellishments that came in a Treasure Chest that I purchased last year.  Colouring is with copic markers and the dots around the image have been made with a Reno Art Marker.

Birthday Wishes

This card was inspired by the colour palette and butterflies in the inspiration picture at The Outlawz Tuesday Challenge.

Glitter n Sparkle - Gold or Silver
http://glitternsparklechallengeblog.blogspot.co.nz/2017/01/challenge-222.html

I have used a couple of offcut pieces of patterned paper.  I covered the join with some glitter ribbon.  The image is from Bugaboo Stamps and is coloured with copic markers and Kindy Glitz.  I matted with some gold metallic paper and added three gold pearls from Rosies Studio (although they haven't photographed gold!)

Winter

A bit more of a CAS card - with mainly gold in the colour scheme.

Penny's Paper Crafty - Anything Goes
http://pennyschallenges.blogspot.co.nz/2017/01/welcome-to-pennys-challenge-312.html

I have used a pre-made card base.  There were three packs of these in a Treasure Box I bought some time ago and I hadn't got around to using any of them.  The image is from Kenny K and is coloured with copic markers and Kindy Glitz.  I added some faux stitching around the edge and then layered on to gold metallic paper.  I added a heart embellishment from a packet that I bought last weekend and lettering that came from the same Treasure Box as the card blank.
