52 weeks Challege - 16 - Gold (again)

 As I have caught up, I thought I would do the last challenge again. I love embossing so much :) . This time I dry embossed some pink paper and then rubbed over the embossed areas with versamark and sprinkled gold powder onto it. It is really fiddly , even using an anti static powder - not perfect but I like it.

 The sentiment is cut from a tonic Die and embossed with pink embossing powder.

Even the flower got embossed !! It stared out as white card stock - I them coloured it blue with copic pens and then embossed the edges with stampendous shabby blue embossing powder- i LOVE the touch of gold in it.

52 Weeks Challenge - week 15 and 16

 First, week 15.
Two animals on the card- actually if you look close , you'll see three.
The bird on the fairy's hand , butterfly in the corner and a tiny butterfly next to the sentiment.

 I punched some paper flowers to match the ones on the stamp.

 Added glitter and liquid pearls.

and a tiny amount of glossy accents to the eyes.

Next - Week 16 - this week :)
all caught up.


This week we are using the image above as inspiration for adding GOLD to our cards.

 I forgot how much i LOVE heat embossing- just watching the powder turn to liquid metal :D LOVE it.
Gold is the best to use (and I have LOADS of embossing powders!)

 The leaf stamp was a Birthday Gift from my sister and is from JustRight.

Scrapology - April Card Challenge

 This month we want you to use the "freebies" that you get with the craft mags to make your card. 
My daughter has a BIG craft mag addiction but she doesn't stamp. I get the stamps if there are any free.

 Don't even ask where these came from! The patterned papers were also free (probably not from the same mag) and I was allowed to use them as they were the sort that are IN the mag  and not sure great quality.

 The stamps are just stamped onto water colour card and painted in with water colour pencils.
 I added a feww liquid pearl dots and drew around the edge of each one.
I am quite happy with these and they cost practically nothing to make.

to join in and to see the inspiration from the rest of the DT , please pop over to the MAIN BLOG

My "Not" Prima Doll -Megan

 I changed the skirt  by stamping one from one opf my Prima doll stamps .
I used some Graphic 45 papers for the background.

 I love the "authentique" word stickers and found just the right words.

 Very proud of Meg at the moment- as i type, she is at the Diabetic clinic with Hubby and they are REALLY pleased with her blood sugars again - Perfect. Unusual for her age .

I made a teeny tiny bow for her skirt using a similar technique to the envelope punch board.

Right that IS the last post for today .

Prima Dolls - Still Playing

And the next step is to have a go at drawing my own- This is my very first attempt so go easy :)
Based on my very Beautiful daughter - Megan ( hence the long red hair) I have drawn in pencil and then painted with water colours- The legs are not quite right and the skirt looks awful  but other than that , I am quite happy with the result. Not sure WHAT to do with it though :).

Graphic 45 -Good ol' sport Male card

 While at ATDML on Friday, I couldn't resist having a quick look at the new graphic 45 papers. I would LOVE to buy them all but funds are a bit tight at the mo, so I picked a couple for papers from each.
Only two sheets of "Good ol' Sport" - wish I'd got more now!.

 I fussy cut the guys playing American football and made a rosette and some flags.

 The players were stuck onto one of those Stix2 tags that Anette gave me and I inked everything.
I need to make more now - I haven't even Looked at the "By the Sea Collection" yet!
