Going Digital

Going Digital is the challenge on Stamping for the Weekend and this cute dragon pirate is from a set of digi stamps which came as a freebie from Dustin Pike who has lots of digi stamps on offer.

I was asked by a friend to make a birthday card for her sister who collects things related to strawberries so I used the free stamp which came with Craft Stamper a while ago for the cut out images and also made two shrink plastic ones as well. Colouring was done with Sakura glitter pens. I do hope my friend thinks it is suitable!

Ribbon Border

Issue 2 of the Next Level arrived this week and there was a tutorial on making a ribbon border effect - this was also the challenge to make something using this technique. In the tutorial a single slot punch was used to make the holes for threading the ribbon but I used a Fiskars slot punch which has a double hole effect which is slightly different. The Hobby Art image was coloured using watercolour pencils and a water brush.

Bloomin Gorgeous

Penny Black challenge 52 is to use flowers this week. On my card the cut out flowers were stamped, gold embossed and coloured with H2Os. The background is a direct to paper technique using fluid chalk inks and the faux brads and sentiment are from Craftwork Cards.

Pink and White

Challenge number 4 on the Allsorts blog was to make a card in pink and white this week. I used an Elusive Images poppy stamp with Adirondack dye ink in cranberry which was brushed out on the flower using a water brush. Nestabilities were used for the matting and greeting.

Just Magnolia

Just Magnolia challenge 8 was a sketch by Rach and here is my version. Image was coloured with Copics and I made some distressed flowers from scraps of patterned paper and sprayed with Glimmer Mist - yet another way to use up some of my huge collection of scraps!

Daisy and Dandelion Challenge 13

Daisy and Dandelion challenge 13 is to use a sketch and to work in black and white. Once I had decided what to do this was quite quick to do with very little colouring in needed for the image.
