Go Green

Often when we think of green we think of St Patricks Day.  So, I wanted to do something that wasn't St Patricks Day themed!


I would like to enter my card into these challenges:

I have used a paper from Kaisercraft along with a topper from the same paper pad.  The image is from Lacy Sunshine and coloured with copic markers in shades of green - I think I used YG09, YG06 and YG00 along with E00, E35 and E31.  The die is a Tattered Lace Die.  I also added some flowers and some Liquid Pearls.

I can think Spring but for those of us in New Zealand it is a long way off!  We are currently in Autumn here.

Girlie Clown

I always seem to colour clowns in mainly primary colours.  I was in one of those moods today where I just wanted to do something different!  So, out came the girlie colours!

http://meljensdesignsdt.blogspot.co.nz/2015/03/challenge-252-recipe-challenge.html

I have used some left over pieces of paper from other cards to create the background.  The pink piece is from Creativ and the gold one is from Kaisercraft.  The image is from MelJens Designs and has been coloured with copic markers.  I added some faux stitching to match the stitching in the image using a Distress Marker (Worn Lipstick).  I also added three flower embellishments in keeping with the girlie theme!

Incy Wincy Designs - Vintage

This week we have a vintage theme for you at Incy Wincy Designs.  Our sponsor this week is Rick St Dennis:



You can check out the inspiration cards using Rick St Dennis images here.  And this is my one:




I have used the fabulous image Paris en Plume.  The background paper and matching pearls are from Rosie's Studio.  I used a fancy rectangle die from Spellbinders to cut out the image.  The image is coloured with copic markers.  I also die-cut a feather using a die that came free with a craft magazine.

Cheerful Daffodils

With all the spring challenges about, I was drawn to these daffodils!  Even though it is autumn here at the moment.



I would like to enter my card into these challenges:

http://fromtheheartstamps.com/community/2015/03/16/i-heart-card-sketches-with-a-twist-no-101/

I have used a daffodil print paper from Rosie's Studio for the background.  I added some yellow mesh ribbon across the card.  The image and sentiment are both from From The Heart Stamps.  I coloured with copic markers Y06, Y02, YG06, YG03, Y28, YR23, E41.  I popped up two layers of the image - the complete flower on the first one and the centre part on the second.
