Bling It On Challenge DT Card

Hello there me again!

This time I want to share with you my DT card for the Bling It On challenge #6. This month it is Sioux's turn to choose the theme and she has chosen ABC.

We also have some new teamies on the DT so pop on over and meet the new team.

For my card I have chosen:

A = Aubergine
B = Bride
C = Circle

The circle is actually embossed but it is not a great photo. I used aubergine ink for the stamp and colouring the embossing and aubergine ribbon from stash. Flowers and pins are from WIld Orchid Crafts. Pearls from stash.

You have until the end of August to enter the challenge so go on have a go!

Thanks for stopping by......................

Make It Colourful Challenge

For anyone who was wondering.............yes I am still alive! Life has been hectic here and it is now definite that I will be losing my job in two months so hopefully when I have a new job things will settle down.

Anyway I have finally been brave and decided to enter the Make It Colourful challenge, this is a tough challenge for me as it is always based on colouring and i am still practicing lol

The challenge this week is colouring characters with dark skin. I didnt make this image into a card as I am not sure what card to make.

I used the Disco Diva from Kenny K and tried to go for a 70's look with purple hair etc!

For a first attempt I am quite pleased with her.

Thanks for looking and hope to see you all again soon.

2 Promarker Challenges

Hello again,

2 posts in one night eh???

Now on to a card I made with Daisy, I have loved this stamp for ages and for some reason very rarely use her.

Here is what I made with her:

I coloured her with promarkers and the papers are from First Edition, the spring collection. Ribbon and doily from stash. Pins from Wild Orchid Crafts. Sentiment is a LOTV one stamped with Tim Holtz distress inks. Her top is actually pink although it looks orange in this picture.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

I Love Promarkers - #69 sketch
Passion for Promarkers - #103 pink and brown or blue and brown
Papertake Weekly - anything goes

Thanks for stopping by...............
