DV 201 Pink Birthday

Our challenge over at Dream Valley for the next two weeks is Pink Birthday. We are sponsored by Fabrika Fantasy and we were lucky enough to have some of their gorgeous digis to work with. I chose Elf Fairy for my card.

The ones we had were png files which were on a white background and perfect for this project. I first loaded a background paper from Bearly Mine Designs into my graphics program, and then the png image file was placed over the top of the background paper to form a focal point and the whole thing was printed onto Talens Watercolour paper. It has been sized to fit the 8” square scalloped card which forms the base.

I coloured her with copic markes, and used a posca pen to add the dots to her dress. Just a couple of diecuts for the sentiment and the small floral sprig along with some glossy accents over the water in the watering can and forming splashes on the plant below. This is matted first onto black card and then onto pink metallic card.

This is a close up of the plant with it’s water splashes.

CCM #232 Dragons or Other Mythical Creatures

As tomorrow, 23rd April, is St. George’s Day here in England, our challenge today at Crafty Cardmakers is Dragons or Other Mythical Creatures.

I stamped my Dragon from Katzelkraft onto Talens Watercolor Paper, and coloured him in with Inktense pencils. The sentiment is a combination of sentiments from Craftwork Cards. The balloons, also coloured with Inktense are also from Katzelkraft.

I added some sparkle pen to the balloons.

The matting layers are from the Indian Summer paper pad from Clarity as I loved the colours.

My Sister’s birthday tomorrow, and she is always complaining that they don’t do St. George and the Dragon cards for birthdays, so here is the dragon……. St. George thought he was too cute to kill so gave him some balloons to hold instead!

ccm #231 Easter

Our challenge today at Crafty Cardmakers is Easter. We would love to see any Easter inspired project from you. You could go traditional, like I have done or it could involve, bunnies, chicks, eggs, lambs or bonnets. Mary is hosting today’s challenge and she will be choosing the Winner and Top 5.

I actually was going to go down the bunny route, but my back is bad and I didn’t have the energy to search around my craft space for rabbits….. when I looked all I could find was hares, so instead I thought I would go traditional instead.

My card is very simple and involves the lovely Easter Hymn There is a Green Hill Far Away, and a lovely die from Leonie Pujol from her Entwined Crosses range. I just used the basic plain cross in silver glittery card and added an inner frame in black. The same card is used in the back layer of my card, along with a layer of black glittery card as a mat.
