Watering can

Sneaking out


   There is a fresh challenge over at QKR Stampede today with the usual theme of anything goes.
   This image, coloured using Promarkers, is called 'sneaking'. I fussy cut it and then mounted it onto white card which I then fussy cut again and attached it to the folded back front of the card so that half of the image was free floating. 


   This image called 'sneaking away' was positioned on the inside of the card so that it lay hidden behind the fount image.
   The background papers were matted and layered onto silver mirri and then white card. Silver peel offs were used for the sentiment and three gems were added to the folded back card front.

Dashing through the snow



   The first challenge of the year at Crafty Cardmakers has the theme of winter fun.
   I have chosen to use an image from Joanna Sheen's winter collection of House Mouse stamps and after colouring it using Promarkers I matted it onto silver mirri and added glitter to the snow.
   The top triangle of background is core'dinations cardstock which I embossed and then coloured using distress ink. The lower triangle is a piece of designer paper that I had in my stash. I then covered the join with blue ribbon.
   Finally I finished the card with a little stamped mouse which was again coloured using Promarkers and then fussy cut.
