Pink,grey and a hint of black

I'm having one of those day's today when everything is hard work, you know those days, I stamped the tag, cut it out, made a hole then discovered I'd only a bright pink eyelet, then I added some black thread and just as I was sticking it too the card it came undone at the last minute so you'll have to imagine some lovely black thread in there as I tried to put some in and the tag just want's to rip, so it can RIP and I'll leave it alone lol, Items used magnolia stamps copics eyelets Pink paper from craft show ages ago Pink acetate Black papermania adhesive pearl Sorry for the blurry picture, yet another thing going wrong today lol, Hugs Liz x

Challenge 24

Stampacular Sunday Challenge 24 My brother-in-laws birthday is this month, and as you know fella's are hard to make for, especially if their not into sport etc, so I've done this card for him, the image is penny black,and the gorgeous bp is Laundry Line,by My Minds Eye, It's slightly glittered, but not too much, so I used silver Mirri to compliment it. I'd lost my mojo for the last few days, but hopefully I'm back on track now and will be back with another card soon x Thanks for looking

Just magnolia with embossing

For this card I embossed the rose at the bottom right, it tied in well with the image , she's coloured in copics and her wings are a gold spica pen, I coloured the rose at the top with two shades of copic pens and did the embelishment at the top right the same, but I also added to this cosmic shimmer mist in gold, the leaves are a punch I have, but thought they matched the bp well x Hugs Liz x

Whiff of joy orange and Teal

For the Whiff of Joy challenge, you have to use the colours of teal and orange, I didn't really have any papers to make a card ,so thought I'd make myself a cover for my notebook, I didn't want to make it too raised up so there's only the flowers at the top overly 3d as the butterfly's could go flat if needed,it's coloured with copics, tried to get a few highlights but they don't show much on the picture, the bp is a frebbie download and the butterflies are a Martha Stewart Punch,the letters were cut using die cuts.
Iv'e also decided to enter this into the Guest DT call which Katharina's holding, which is open till the 19th September at 8pm, you need to go to her blog if you haven't already done so, enter your cards or creations, you can do as many as you like, so good luck x

copic colour challenge 29

I got these cute images free with a craft magazine and couldn't resist making a card using the copic colours for this weeks challenge, although I hadn't got the precise colours I used my nearest ones, (hopefully) the holly background paper is from forever friends christmas glow pack and the circular sentiment was another freebie from a magazine, which I then mounted on to a nestie die cut.

whiff of Joy challenge 46

The wiff of Joy challenge is using a lovely sketch from Bev, I have used copics for her hair and skin but used distress inks for the rest, I've only got a small amount of colours, but loved the way you can distress the edge of the card to get a lovely soft image, it's a shame you can't do something with copics other than use a spray gun. Papers were from various CD's I have (must check these more often as there is some nice stuff on some,). Oh well I'd better go got to see to the dog ,lol .... She's not sat cross legged honest.
