Easel Card

This is my first attempt at an Easel card, I've been meaning to give it a try but never quite got round to it.
The current challenge at The Stampman is an Easel card - anything goes, so I though i would pop on over and enter this card.

Also at cd sunday  this week, the challenge is 'wedding anniversary' - I've used an image and coordinating backing papers from the Romance Popcorn Platinum CD.

More Butterfly Jewels

Here are 2 more cards made with the Hunkydory kit 'butterfly jewels', this time using the brown and cream colour tones.

Best Wishes

The challenge this week at Pear tree designs is to use the sentiment 'Best Wishes'.
I've stamped and embossed this Giraffe image and colored it in with watercolor pencils. The background has been created using cosmic shimmer mist and edged with distress ink.

Butterfly Jewels

Been having a play today with a kit I got a while ago from Hunkydory called Butterfly Jewels.
Here's a card I've made - just added cardstock, matted the topper onto some paper spritzed with cosmic shimmer mists and edged with distress ink, and added glitter to the butterflys.

This card I'm entering into My Time to Craft Challenge which the theme for this week is Glitter and Glitz

Flippin Men Card


I've made this card using a Flippin men stamp colored in with Promarkers. The sketch is from Sunday sketch and stamp challenge. I'm also using it to enter this weeks challenges at:
I love Promarkers, which is to use acetate on your card,
Pear Tree designs weekly challenge is the theme 'male' .

For the I love Promarkers challenge I stamped the image again on acetate to use it as an overlay and it gives the image a glossy finish.
