Spooky Matrimony

 Hi guys,

I have a friend getting married this month and so I combined halloween and a wedding.

Firstly I added the two stripes of halloween themed washi-tape. Then I drew the ghosts onto the card blank, adding the required wedding attire to them both. Finally I use chameleon pens to write the sentiment in yellow and orange.

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

The Texture of Music

 Hi guys,

A new challenge has started today over at I Love Promarkers

Our sponsor is  Digi Doodle Studios and I have used Rockin' Reed.

I coloured the image using the following Promarkers - Daffodil Bloom, Oatmeal and Honeycomb for the hair - Tawny Owl, Morning Mist, Budding Rose and Daffodil Bloom for the drumkit - Morning Mist for the skin - Pastel Green, Blue Pearl and Umber for the clothes.

I used my paper cutter on the wavy setting to cut the image and layered it over an embossed crown from my stash. I layered these onto a splatter patterned card and then stamped the sentiment and a cat and heat embossed using Cosmic Shimmer embossing powder.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
MMM #158 Embossing
SOS #455 Musical Notes (I hope this is ok as there are not any actual notes on this, but he is playing music?)

Simply Christmas for Santa's Little Helper

 I have made a very simple Christmas Card for a special child

I used an inkpad to colour a peel-off in yellow and then stuck this to the centre of a card blank. I then used some purple snowflake stickers to accent the card and smudged some of the yellow ink around them to give a bit of a messy feel. I think I could have increased this a little bit, but I was worried it would look too messy!

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

SimplyLessisMoore #453 Purple and yellow

 Hi guys,

Sorry I am late - I lost track of what day it was and what DT needed to be completed! :(

However here I am now with my DT creation for Caroles fun BINGO board over at MAWTT.

I have used the middle row - image, patterned paper and glitter.

The image is a Bugaboo image - unfortunately the shop is now closed. I coloured this with Promarkers and then fussy cut. I die-cut a panel of patterned paper (this was free with a magazine) using X-cut large oval nesting dies. I then die-cut the sentiment onto X-cut self-adhesive glitter paper. To finish, before layering together, I added PVA glue to the rose petals and sprinkled glitter onto them.

Vintage Christmas

 Well I think stained glass is pretty vintage anyway, so I went with it.

I inked an embossing folder with gold papermania dye ink and then embossed a card blank. The folder I used looks like it could be frost creeping onto a pane of glass so I thought it was great for a stained glass centrepiece. I then added the topper to the centre and a die-cut gold sentiment to the top.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
inkspirational #248 retro (stained glass must be retro right?)
mttc #466 Embossing
MMM #158 Embossing
