Two Little Sweeties


Wow what a great response there was to last weeks challenge, thank you everyone who entered Katharinas Whiff of Joy Guest DT Call, the standard of entries was absolutely staggering and I am Glad I don't have Katharinas job of having to choose between you all.
Well this week we are back to normal and have a real lovely challenge we would like to see your creations using Lavender and Lace. The rest of the Dt have created some really lovely cards with this theme so just click
here to see them and of course come and join us in the challenge.


Willow picking flowers is such a lovely image to colour especially with distress inks, I know I shouldn't have a favourite but I must admit she has won my heart. The edges of the image have been distressed with Milled Lavender inks after being cut with the Oval nesties. The scrumptious papers are a download and the sentiment is another Whiff of Joy stamp. The flowers are from stash and leaves have been punched with Ash Branch punch, (which I am pleased I am not the only one who has trouble with).



The papers have been used inside and I have added some diecut butterflies which I have had for ages and have no idea where they came from.



Stamp with Stampavie


For the second time this week I have had to make a card for a challenge that daunts me, this week on Stamp with Stampavie the colour challenge is ORANGE and Blue, now ORANGE is just one of those colours I just cannot get on with, but i persevered and am quite pleased with the card in the end. We would love to see your cards for this theme so please come and join us.


My Lovely postman made my day and delivered a little parcel containing the E00 Copic Marker I had ordered from Artifolk, of course I then had to colour an image using it. I havn't used this great Sarah Kay image for ages and forgot how great she is to colour. I didn't think I had any Orange DP but found this in a pad of BG and it was just right. The Flowers are all from stash, and the lovely leave charm is from Katharina. Ribbon from Poppicrafts. The sentiment is a Whiff of Joy Stamp. As you can see yesterdays tearing exercise left me wanting to use the effect again perhaps I have now overcome this fear.


Still tearing as you can see I have coloured the image again for the inside, I am enjoying decorating the insides as much as the front now.


Thanks for looking
Hugs
Jacqui xx
