DigiStamps4Joy - Swirls and Pearls

This fortnight at DS4J it is Pearls and Swirls!

I have used Gypsy, isn't she just lovely?!  She is coloured with promarkers.  I put her into an embossing folder from Forever Friends Black and Gold range. I think it is perfect for this as it has little dots that look like little pearls so i dotted them all with a pink gel pen to make faux pearls.  The white bazill backing card is embossed with the divine swirls embossing folder.  The pink paper is K and Co (i think).  Pearls and flowers from my stash.

There is still time to enter my candy if you haven't already, link at the top!

Incy Wincy Designs – Bold and Bright

 This week at Incy Wincy Designs our challenge is Bright and Bold.
We are sponsored by the wonderful Michelle's Scarpbooking and more who is giving the winner $15 to spend in their store. How great is that?
The design team were given some images to play with and this is what I came up with:

I don't know where the papers are from as they were sent to me by a friend, as were the balloons and ribbon. The image is coloured with promarkers
Thank you for looking!

Incy Wincy Designs - Flower Frenzy

This week at Incy Wincy our challenge is Flower Frenzy!! We are being sponsored by the fabulous Aspire to Thrive charity (ATTC) 

I have used Chelsea, i think she is just gorgeous!  As always i have used Promarkers to colour her and mounted her on to a nestie.  The green backing paper is Dandelion and Daisy and the pink is K & Co. 

The flowers are Prima and are held together with a brad.  The butterflies are punched from my Martha Stewart punch.  I have put little pearls on them for that little bit of depth. The swirl is a Sizzix die cut and is embellished with tiny gems.  The sentiment is from Craftworks Cards.  I have added a few gms to that too.  All of the embellishments and her dress have a tiny amount of stickles on them to make them really sparkle!!

Thanks for popping by and make sure you pop by the main blog to check out the rest of the DT's craetions!

Quite a few people have emailed me and asked for 3 things:  How they can buy my cards? And would i do a tutorial on my colouring and flowers?

Well, Oh My God how flattered am i???  Firstly, i will be putting some of my cards on ebay over the weekend, (this one is on there now)
And the tutorials?  Again how flattering??  I will try to get those done in the next couple of days.  If there is anything in particular you would like to see please email me and i will do my best to help.

DigiStamps4Joy - Monochromatic challenge

Over at Digistamps4joy this week it is Monochromatic!  I have never done a challenge like this before, but i enjoyed it!  And if you are a regular follower you will know i don't tend to use words as the main focus of my cards so this wasa bit different too.

I have coloured the 'image' with promarkers Cerise and Pale Pink and layered it onto some Bazzil cardstock.  I inked the heart, which is from ebay and glossy accented it and all the little hearts on the image. The papers and ribbon are some from my stash, flowers from prima and candi from Craftworks cards.

I hope you like it and be sure to pop over to the challenge blog to check out the rest of the DT!
