Today at Allsorts my great teamie Emma has set us the theme of "Plain and Simple". And I admit these two are my third and fourth attempts at 'plain and simple' and I'm still not convinced I've got the hang of it.....one and two were binned.......I know sinful for a crafter.
The black and white effort is some simple stamping and embossing onto with lined cardstock using a bird from Inkadinkao 9836 and part of a sentiment from Hero Arts 30-056. A rose made from some stash DP using my tattered floral die, a but of punching with Martha Stewart loop and a couple of pearls coloured back with Copics. This card is for the following challenge:
Fab 'n Funky - Quote me Happy
For the next one I used a piece of card that had been spritzed with Glimmer Mist honey dew mist and stamped with Hero Arts D5449 fabulous flourish using Tim Holtz dusky Concorde. The sentiment is also from hero, but an unmounted set for which I no longer have the code I'm afraid. I mounted the piece onto bazzil cardstock and punched the border with Martha Stewart zig zag and a butterfly also using a MS punch.
Over to Polkadoodles where this week the my great blog pal Claire wants us to make something with a Hidden Element. So I have come up with this little box which I made on the scoreboard and covered with paper from the Paper Boutique CD and inside bobbing butterflies and flowers. The flower on the top is made from the same paper using three punches and spritzing with Glimmer Mist pearl.
My final card is another of the lovely image from Sweet Pea poppy love. The background has been brayered with Big and Juicy Happy Birthday, masking a moon.....this image just seems to lend herself to a moonlit background. I coloured her with the same inks. The DP is from stash, Martha Steward eyelet lace border, some ribbon slides and a punched flower spritzed with Glimmer Mist dazzling diamonds. This card is for the following challenges:
