ATC challenge for Happy Little Stampers this month is Butterfly - I am really happy with how this little work of art turned out. I used a printed image for my background, sponged on some colour, stamped my butterfly image off the edge, coloured it and added some Interference Gold for some shine - also did the same to a little wooden butterfly. Then I added some texture on the corners and used a blue card base to frame it. Thanks for visiting and enjoy your day

This Rainy Day card came about because last week I was my brayer, embossing folders and Distress Oxide ink...the coral colours.... well I'm not one to waste the ink so I ended up with a few EF images and then there was still ink on the brayer so I misted card with water and quickly ran the brayer down and it left these great water drips...
Hence when I spotted the Inkspirational challenge 158 - with a Rain Photo, I had to give it a go again with blue ink. I stamped, coloured and fussy cut my puppy image and the same with the umbrella. Then I scrounged through my sentiment and letter stamps and came up with my sentiment... I decided to stamp it onto a separate raindrop sheet as I was confident enough to do it straight on the card panel... I cut out the sentiment and used a marker around the edge. I used foam tape to mount the sentiment and puppies.

Muse Challenge #261 where we are casing Tracey's lovely fresh floral card... flowers are a favourite of mine - real and on card. I really like the colours, her layout, the fussy cut image, and then the sentiment - stamped and die cut.... so I've just done the same... I stamped my image and used Distress Oxides to watercolour it, then cut it out. I die cut my 'hello' and then glued it to white card and cut around that too. Then to finish I just stamped the rest of my sentiment and attached all the elements with foam tape. Thanks for visiting and enjoy your weekend.
Watercooler Wednesday WWC165 - All About Occasions, and Double 'D' challenge - Twine. Stamped my image offset to one side and then for a change used coloured pencils to colour it. Stamped on my sentiment and framed my panel in textured paper onto a white card.....and to finish tied on a strand of twisted twine. Thanks for visiting and enjoy your weekend.

House Mousse card for challenge HMFMC263 - I've chosen Anything Goes this fortnight. Stamped, embossed and coloured my image then used a stitched die to cut out the panel. Used some bright cheerful DP for the background and framed that with bright pink paper on a white card. Added a bit of decoration - some die cut corners and then a die cut 'Happy' and finally a stamped sentiment which I attached with foam tape. Thanks for visiting and enjoy your weekend.
CAS Christmas April challenge . This is my favourite ornament stamp...which I stamped and embossed in silver EP. Then I used Distress Oxides to watercolour the image, with a touch of Perfect Pearls on the star. My sentiment is die cut from sparkly silver card and to finish a silver bow. Thanks for visiting and enjoy your day.
CAS Watercolour April challenge - Bird. Stamped my image in brown Versafine and used Distress Oxides to watercolour the bird and then Distress Ink for the background, also a touch of white gel pen for the eyes and black marker. Foam mounted on a white card and no sentiment to mess him up... I'm really happy with the result. Thanks for visiting and enjoy your day
