One Of My Favourite Challenges!

There is a lovely new challenge on the One Stitch At A Time challenge blog for the next fortnight, please pop over and see what my fabulous team mates have made. You can find it right here!

Anything Goes With Dies, Yay! Love my dies!

for my card this week I chose to use Stardust by Digi Blessings and you can find this gorgeous image in the Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet here.

I've coloured her with Promarkers and Ive sprinkles real stardust on the stars and her shoes.  The background paper is from a pad of Graphic 45. and the die cuts are a mix of Sue Wilson Pierced Squares and Marianne Designs  Anya's Squares.  The delicate little silver bow is a die by Memory Boxcalled simply Corner Bow and the small flower is a LeCrea' Multi floral die.

Yup! Love dies!

Anything Goes With Elements of Nature

There's a smashing new challenge at One Stitch At A Time this week and it is Anytjing Goes With Elements of Nature. The Sponsor for this challenge is StitchyBear Digi Outlet with a $10 coupon to spend in our store. Check out the fabulous inspiration my teamies have come up with here

I chose to use Doorway by Coosty Creations and you can find it here and with the image comes five beautiful papers to use as a background as I have.

I chose one of the beautiful papers as my background but this one will work with lots of flowers too.  I've printed the image onto watercolour paper from Crafters Companion. On my scene i've coloured the image with Spectrum Aqua pens in various shades as I tried to give it a very soft feel. I wouldn't mind popping into this taverna for a drink on a warm summer's evening.  The ivy leaves are from a lovely die by Sheena Douglas and it's called Festive Ivy but I think this is an all year round die. The vein on the leaves have been inked through the die with some dark brown Mary Matchables ink.

This is going into my card stash to send at a later date.
