Hollyhocks


   The Crafting With Dragonflies challenge is celebrating it's 5th birthday. This is a card that I have designed for them using a hollyhock digi image from Digi Stamps 4 Joy. I coloured it using Promarkers and matted it onto card cut using a Tattered Lace die. The designer paper (which looks blueish here is in fact pale pink) was also created using the digi and after matting it onto pink card I wrapped organza ribbon round it twice before matting it onto white card. I then added a triple bow, pearls and a peel off sentiment to the card.

Message in a bottle



   Another anything goes themed challenge begins at QKR Stampede today.
   Using the wish in a bottle digi image I printed it repeatedly onto a blue background to form my design paper. This I then matted and layered onto blue and then white card.
   I coloured the larger version of the image usung Promarkers and cut it out using a Tattered Lace scroll die and added colour to this using Promarkers. The sentiment was made from peel off letters which I coloured using a permanent pen.

Spring flowers



   Another challenge begins today at QKR Stampede and as always the theme is anything goes.
   I folded a piece of purple card to form an easel card to the front of which I added the digi called Frame of Flowers which I had coloured using Promarkers. I added another piece of purple card to the easel base and edged it with copper strips of peel offs. I cut two flower arrangements using Sheena Douglas' adorable anemone die set. After colouring one of the arrangements I glued it to the second and attached it to the easel card using form pads to form the stop for the easel. I then added a copper peel off happy birthday.
