Easter bunny


   A little early, but what is wrong with being prepared! Today sees the start of a new QKR Stamped challenge and I chose to use this cute bunny with bow which I coloured using Promarkers and then fussy cut. The egg was cut using a Tattered Lace shaped oval die and then I used an embossing tool to create the markings on the 'chocolate'. They should have been indentations but the card curled the wrong way! The sentiment was also cut using a Tattered Lace die.

Castle in the sky


   Friday means a new anything goes themed QKR Stampede challenge.
   I have used the digi called Castle in the sky and after colouring it using Promarkers matted it onto an oval piece of dark purple card. The design paper was printed using the My Craft Studio CD ROM All grown up; one of the CDs in From a Man's Point of View set. I Matted and layered this onto mirri and white card. The letters were cut using dies from Tattered Lace's chantilly upper and lower case alphabets.
