Tiny Treasures Challenge

I made these two cards for a challenge on The Theme is Tiny 'Treasures'. This Magnolia image of baby in bunny suit is just so cute. I coloured both of the cards with Distress Inks and the DP's are both from Basic Grey. The stamps used on the other card were purchased from "I brake for stamps" I bought them a while ago and have only just got around to using them.

Here's a card I made for a lovely crafty friend's birthday recently. I haven't made many oriental themed cards lately, forgot how much I enjoy oriental work, must do a few more! If you are visiting my blog, please leave me comments, I really enjoy reading them.

Hanglar & Stanglar

For this one I used up one of my 'precious' Hanglar and Stanglar images that a crafty friend sent to me, isn't she cute?! I also wanted to use a stamp which Susana of Susana's Custom Art and Card Design sent to me among the free gifts she sent with my last order from her. I stamped it on the background card, then again, coloured it with promarkers/copics and cut it out and decoupaged it. I used brads as pegs for each of the 'danglers' to add to the 3D impression. The flower was amongst a pack bought in the USA on my recent trip and I used on of my Martha Stewart border punches on the brown layer. The note pages were made using a Magnolia stamp and the metal embellishment came within a DoCrafts 'goody bag' bought a while ago from the Art Shop at Kelly Bray.

Monochrome Green Faerie Song

I made this card for the challenge in the SCAC forum, based on the May sketch. Using a Faerie Song stamp, coloured with polychromos pencils, blended with sansodor. The flowers and gems were purchased in the USA and the ferns made with a Martha Stewart punch.
