Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 74


This is my design card for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 74: anything goes with a twist ... use pastel colours. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

For my card I used Bugaboo Stamps AKV too Wedding - cut cake (Bugaboo are sponsoring the challenge), colouring digitally using Microsoft Paint. For the background I used the left hand corner of a 12 x 12 paper by Carol Wilson that I've treasured for years - this is actually pastel pink with white embossing, although in the photo it looks white. The piece of paper backing the image is from Hot off the Press Jacie's vintage papers (I've had this book of papers for longer than I care to remember).

Completely Christmas challenge 57


This is my design card for Completely Christmas challenge 57: anything goes with a twist ... black and white. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and we would love you to join in our challenge with your black and white entries.

I used Sassy Studios 'snow queen portrait' (Sassy Studios are sponsoring the challenge), a png image that I superimposed on to a piece of Bugaboo Stamps digital paper, layering a strip of another Bugaboo paper, changing them back black and white, adding the text and then printing. I then wrapped a piece of Crafty ribbons snowflake grosgrain ribbon around it and layered on to a black card blank, added a couple of white organza 'flowers' (more like pom-poms really - not sure what you'd call them - lol!).  I lightly coloured the snow queen's hair using a soft colouring pencil.(a water colour pencil, but I didn't add water!).
