MFT Colour Challenge

Hi! MFT Card Challenges has a gorgeous colour challenge at the moment:


I stamped the image on watercolour paper and then used Stampendous Shabby White embossing enamel. I used Brushos to add the colours and let them mix and blend. I added gems to the centres of the flowers. Here's how it turned out:




I'm also entering this in the following challenges:

Inkspirational: "Melt" (Embossing powder)

Shopping Our Stash: "Splish Splash" (watercolour Brushos)

Hmmm, does it look like a post-it note!?

Hi! I've just made a card inspired by the colours in the current Cupcake Inspirations challenge, and the sketch from the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge:



I masked off the rectangle at an angle on square card, stamped the images and then used ink dusters for a golden orange background. However, I'm not sure now whether it just looks like a post-it note with a couple of flowers on it ;-s  I added some stickles to the flowers, too, which made the ink go a bit too pink - it's actually purple, the same ink as the sentiment.

Here's the card:



I'm also entering this one in the Simon Says Stamp challenge: "Anything Goes".

Mermaids

Hi! After a rubbish day at work, I came home, cuddled and fed the cats, and then made a glittery card - feel better already! Here's what I made:



I coloured her with ProMarkers, and then added Glamour Dust to her tail and to the flower centres.

CAS Colours & Sketches 4

Hi! This is my last week as a guest designer for CAS Colours & Sketches! This week's challenge is a sketch:



I struggled with this one a little, so ended up making two cards for it! Here's what I came up with:



This one was coloured with ProMarkers, and then smothered in Glamour Dust.




This one is also coloured with ProMarkers and drowned in Glamour Dust, with some little blue gems to add some Christmassy sparkle :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Post-Holiday Blues

Hi! My fella & I are just back from a wonderful holiday with my lovely mate Linda (Crafty Distraction) and her family! We had an amazing time, but now it's back to work, and I'm fighting off the post-holiday blues by binge-watching old episodes of Charmed, and making cards!

Here's one I just finished, inspired by the challenges at Less Is More and Color Throwdown:



I'm thinking of trying a Christmas version of this card, by adding some glittery snow to their heads...
