Going spotty


We are going all dotty and stripey at Allsorts this week where Debs is hosting the theme.

I have used this sweet little girl Penny Black 40-027 Warmest Wishes, coloured with Aquamarkers and decoupaged with three layers. The sentiment is Penny Black 4116H, the DP My Minds Eye and the swirls are a Marianne die. This card is also for the following challenge:

Lots to Do - Easel or shaped card

Enfys would like us to welcome a new baby at Polkadoodles this week, so another opportunity to use another of the elements from the great new CD Sundae of Seasons. I love this cute little bear which I printed our several time to decoupage. Papers from the same CD, Martha Stewart punched border and corner and sentiment again from the CD. This card is also for the following challenge:

Paper Sundaes - For someone little

And my final share of the day uses one of the new stamps from Sweet Pea The Silentness. I stamped her with Memento black, masked her then brayered..........it occurred to me that I mask moons and suns so often, why not add a few stars as well, so this is what I did on this one using Big and Juicy hydrangea. I coloured the image with Copics, glittered the fairy wings and stars, added some swirls cut on a TH big die, a flower made from the same Daisy Bucket DP and pearls and ribbon to embellish. This card is for the following challenges:

Sweet Pea - Easel card
Colour Create - Purple, aqua and white
Flutterby Wednesdays - Open them (with wings of course)
Secret Crafter - Manga style (Is this Manga style ? - Hands up, I'm not sure girls)
