New Home Card

I needed a New Home card for tomorrow so popped up to my Craft Room & made one. It's the first visit that my Craft Room has had for a fair few days! It must be feeling neglected! & I've had withdrawal symptoms LOL

I used some of my Blonde Moments paper & some small blooms. The dark pink blooms I coloured with Whisper pens.

For my entry to the Copics Challenge 22. Apologies for the awful pics but couldn't wait for better lighting or I would miss the deadline! Will try for better pic's tomorrow.

This challenge was to follow a sketch by Maddy.

The Next Level challenge 7

This is my entry for /the Next Level challenge 7. We were given a sketch to follow & asked to also have a 3D image as a twist. The fairy wand tip is stickled.

My 3D image is my fairy stamp which I cut out & layered. The butterflies (a punch) are also layered as are the flowers with buttons in the centre. The second circle is stamped with a background type stamp for an added bit of interest.

Graduation cards

I made this Graduation card for my son who Graduates tomorrow with a 2:1 degree in Architectural Technology.

The background is stamped & the ribbons are the colour of the hood worn. I cut the cap freehand & used embroidery thread to make the tassel.

Card no 2 is for our niece who Graduates on Thursday from Birmingham University.

The inside of the card is a useful stamp that can be used for many occasions :-)
