Black on black


Delicious doodles 45: black-on-black challenge prompted me to make this card. I used a sparkly black card blank on to which I used a piece of Basic Grey Scarlet's letter 'fre the well' paper - I put various strips of Tim Holtz tissue tape on to this and some Craftime lace rub ons. I layered the Poundland felt flowers with buttons on to the larger paper flowers and added a birthday sentiment. As I've used Basic Grey paper this is for Basic Grey 98: flowers.

Wobbly dinosaurs


This card was prompted by Red carpet studio 45: action movies - using some dinosaurs on springs (bought from Poundland long ago) with some offcuts of Basic Grey archaic papers, mounted on to a kraft card blank.

Faux stitching for CHNC challenge 134


Another card for my CHNC challenge 134: stitching.  I've used 'winter' digital papers supplied by Floppy Latte Designs, stamping with a favourite Inkadinkado angel stamp, with some faux stitching creating a border using a Sakura gelli roll pen.

Two of the printed papers were torn around perspex oval templates. The angel stamp was inked with versamark and heat embossed with detail silver embossing powder. Snowflakes were cut with some of the paper using a Docrafts punch. The sentiment is a left over from a Kanban kit bought some years ago.

CHNC challenge 134: stitching


Today's CHNC challenge 134 is all about 'stitching'. One of the sponsors, Craftybren's Embroidered Embellishments, has joined me as a guest designer and has done a wonderful card with embroidery. My card doesn't have such intricate stitching, but rather some stitching on an offcut of some wrapping paper that I bought some years ago (it was far too good to use as wrapping paper - it has the feel of handmade paper).  I mounted the stitched paper on to a scrap piece of striped paper.

 I've used images kindly supplied by Floppy Latte Designs -' Christmas prayer silhouette' and 'Christmas 9', colouring the stained glass window with copics and adding some glittered stars raised with 3D foam.
