Tableau Tuesday

Hi Everyone

It is our free week over at Daisy Doodles this week & I really liked the card I came up with. I decided to go for a fairly vintage feel (at least I hope that's what I have achieved lol!!)

I kept the colour scheme fairly simple & coloured the image using my trusted Promarkers. I added some Bronze coloured organza, gold gems & the sentiment is a rub on. The butterfly is a K&Co diecut.
I followed the theme throughout the card. Using a mixture of Nesties & Punches. x Clare x

As there are so many Halloween challenges out there at the moment I thought I had better join in & get a card made. It also gave me chance to play with another Messy Rabbit Stamp. This time I chose Nighttime. I just love the look on his face lol!!!

I coloured him in using my Promarkers as normal :-) The papers are all Daisy & Dandelion & I just love the one with the eyes in the dark. I followed the sketch at Friday Sketch Challenge & cut the letters on my bug.

On the inside of the card I thought it would be a great idea to make a sort of window with the effect of the eyes peering in. Then I printed a sentiment to match the card. x Clare x

Kingfisher Card

Afternoon Everyone

My MIL's birthday is on Saturday so I took the opportunity to create a card using a Design House Papercrafts sheet that is now available on CUP. It has been designed by Katie Rose & is a new twist on the original Looking On sheet.
I didn't need to do much to the card, just added a couple of gems & the name.

The inside was created by cutting the image from the square & replacing it with some writing paper & adding the Kingfisher square x Clare x

Back to The Daisies

Hi Everyone

Well I am finally back among the Daisies & I have to say it is soooo good to be back :-) This week we have a fab challenge for you. The theme this week is Christopher Columbus Day so we want to see all your cards with a Boat, Shore or Relaxing Image..... I decided I would do a Xmas Card & chose the Relaxing part of the theme.

When I saw this image I just couldn't wait to use him. Isn't he cool? I coloured him in using Promarkers, then used my Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze in white to give the edge of the ice some shine. Not sure if the camera picked it up properly. I used a Snowflake embossed background & then cut out some Snowflakes from a glitter peel off sheet. Lastly I added soe Stickles to the hat & Igloo.
Here is a close up of the image.

As I embossed directly onto the card the inside automatically had the Snowflake pattern debossed. I then created a writing area. Onto this I added a laser cut edging & some more Stickles. x Clare x
