Tilly with flowers

Good Afternoon,

Not feeling overly good today just hope I'm not coming down with something again as I've only just got rid of the last lot of colds.

I have made this card for the ABC Challenge DT Call. I have used the fab Saturated Canary Tilly stamp, this is the first Saturated Canary rubber stamp that i have bought as all the rest are digi's & I absolutely love her she is so easy to colour & very versatile.


The papers are from a craft magazine that my Mum gave me & the butterfly is one of my New purchases from Prima.

I have coloured her with Copic's for her hair & Pro Markers for the rest of her. I have used Vera Color Lilac ink to do the background. I have also added glamour dust to her skirt & wings & some fine holo glitter where the fairy dust is coming out of her fingers. It really does sparkle when you get it in the right light.


The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts & here is another pic of the beautiful butterfly.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Papertake Weekly Challenge - New Year, New Stash (Papers & Butterfly)
Crafting By Design - Flowers, Flowers, Flowers
ABC Challenge - Dazzle 


Hope you are having a lovely weekend, just a shame it always seems to be over so quickly

It's a boy thing at Charisma Cardz


Good Morning,

Wow where did that fortnight go? It's Challenge time again at Charisma Cardz & the turn of team A to strut our stuff.
I do really have problems making male cards so this theme was a challenge but when i saw this fab decoupage set I just had to have it & I do have a thing for old steam trains lol I couldn't resit adding one of the little tags from the set to the corner & i've added some black & white twine.


 
Our fab sponsors this week are:


"Sassy Studio Designs is a fresh new company. We have been designing and selling for a year now, and we have been kindly received into the community of digi stampers and crafters. I started designing images shortly after I started stamping, reason being...I didn't hardly like anything else out there I was a young adult woman at the time I was engaged, had no kids, I wanted fun sexy images that I would enjoy using and my friends and hubby would enjoy receiving. I designed images for 2 other digi stamp companies when my wonderful hubby kept trying to get me to go out on my own. So in June 2009 thanks to the few faithful followers I had, Sassy Studio Designs was born! It has been a wonderful journey starting my own store. We have just grown so much these past months.I still try to keep "
Lindsay Dyer: keep with my original philosophy and reason for designing stamps, make them fun and keep them sassy...and yes sometimes even sexy!

You're a classic

Good Morning,

I ordered a few Visible Image stamps when they had their sale & now I have a draw full of new stamps (blushes). So I thought I had better have a little play with them, I have used 3 different stamps to make this card & as I'm not overly good at doing masculine cards I thought i had better start doing some more.
I have used Vintage Car, No matter your age & Pocket Watches. I stamped out the Vintage car stamp twice & have cut out the front wheel & bumper, coloured the tyre with a white pencil & the bumper with a silver metallic pen & decoupaged it to the front to make it pop out a bit more. I have also coloured the back tyre & head light with pencils.






I also cut out the pocket watches & used sticky pads to fix them to the card

 
You can sort of see the that the wheel is higher that the rest of the image in this pic.
 
Well all in all I am quite pleased with this card, its more simple than I'm used to doing but with masculine cards sadly you cant really add all the Flowers & bling.
 
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
 
Visible Image - Anything Goes
 
Hope everyone is having a fab day & even better cos its FRIDAY!!!!!
