Lilac



   Today sees the start of another anything goes challenge at Crafting from the Heart.
   I cut a rectangle from white card and glued a honeycomb lattice behind it before matting and layering onto purple and then white card. Using Tattered Lace's botanical collection CD ROM I printed the flower image several times. I then used the accompanying die to cut the flower out and decoupaged it. The bees were cut using the peony pavilion accents die having been printed using the accompanying CD ROM. I finished the card with a peel off sentiment.

The image, coloured using Promarkers with Chameleon pens used for some of the petals is called 'flower pots' and matted onto red card.

Maple leaves



   The theme for this fornight's challenge at Crafty Cardmakers is autumn colours.
   I used a maple die from Crafter's Companion and used it to randomly punch leaves from white card and after dusting it with various Distress inks matted and layered it onto copper mirri and white card.

Chocolate kisses
