Dolphin

   This week the Crafting From The Heart challenge is being sponsored by


As usual the theme is anything goes.


   I have used the image 'Splash the dolphin' colouring it using Promarkers. I used paper printed using the Everyday CD ROM from My Craft Studio for the water and dusted the sky using Distress ink. Glitter was then added to the splashes and water and gems to the water droplets. I framed the image with dark blue card cut using a frame from Hunkydory's Moonstone with love die set.
   The background of the card is sea blue mirri which I embossed with a bubbles embossing folder from Crafter's Companion. This was the matted and layered onto blue then white card. Finally I added the sentiment cut using a die from the afore mentioned Hunkydory set.

Hydrangeas



   The hydrangeas in my garden seem not to mind all the heat that we have been experiencing at the moment and these decoupaged flowers remind me of them. They were printed and cut using Tattered Lace's CD ROM and dies called Duchess collection and the half frame was cut using dies from the summer selection of melded frames set. The matted layers consist of pearlescent paper, mauve and white card stocks. The sentiment is a peel off coloured using a permanent pen.

   Cute Card Thursdays - ribbons/bows
   Allsorts - flowers all over

Countryside collection



   This is a card I made using the dies and CD ROM from Tattered Lace's Countryside collection.
The frame and mat for the flowers were cut using the charisma country meadow dies. These are rectangular dies but by letting them overhang the base of the cutting machine and positioning the second run through carefully I was able to cut square shapes. The decoupaged flowers were cut using a die from the charisma country garden set. A die from one of Tattered Lace's magazines was used to cut the sentiment cut from mirri.

   Little Patch of Crafty Friends - anything goes
   Allsorts - in my garden
   Incy Wincy Designs - flowers
