Rainy days



   This image from Scrapper's Delights is called rainy days. I coloured it using Promarkers, adding silver gel pen to the umbrella. After cutting it out using the Tattered Lace Oval die I added Glossy Accents to the puddle and used Liquid Pearls to make raindrops. Using the same die I cut into some cloud design paper and then slotted the image into the aperture. I then matted and layered this onto core'dinations cardstock and white card. The umbrella was made using a Tattered Lace parasol die and the off cuts from this were used to make the bow. I used a peel off for the sentiment.

Birthday fire



   Today sees the start of a new challenge at QKR Stampede and this time the theme is anything goes with the twist wheels.
   My late husband used to fire a cannon when he first joined a re-enactment group so I was drawn to this image of a cannon (number 13208). I coloured it using Promarkers and then matted and layered it onto yellow and red papers and then cream card. I then cut out a 'flash' from the yellow and red papers and added a peel off sentiment to the card.

Owl



   My daughter has a friend who is owl mad so this is a card for her. I printed the owl from Dragons Lair Designs behind a frame called cinnamon spice torn frame 1 also from Dragons Lair Designs and coloured it using Promarkers. The background paper is also from Dragons Lair Designs and I matted and layered this onto black and then white card.

Cupcake jump



   Today sees the start of a new challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and this time the theme is pearls and/or gems.
   I love the House Mouse images and as I haven't used one of the stamps for a long time I decided that it was about time that I did. This one is called cupcake jump.  coloured it using Promarkers and cut it out using an oval die. I then matted it onto pale yellow oval paper and a darker yellow rectangular piece of paper which in turn was matted onto white card. I added coloured pearls that matched the sprinkles on the cake to the pale yellow mat and a gold peel off to each corner of the dark yellow rectangle.

Juggling



   The theme this week for the QKR Stampede challenge is anything goes with the twist of feathered friends.
   I know that Easter has just been celebrated but when I saw this image called Juggling (number 24226) I just felt I had to use it on an Easter card - so here's getting in early for next year!
   I made the oval card base using an essential oval Tattered Lace die and covered the front of the card with shiny crinkle paper. The image was coloured using Promarkers as was the sentiment (a Eureka digi number 3701). After cutting it out using a smaller die from the same set of oval dies I attached it to the card.
