Petals - pink and green

The theme on Inspire Me Thursday this week is 'petals' and the current challenge on Created by hand is 'pink and green', so I've combined these, using one of my favourite stamps - it's very simple, but I love it - coloured with copics and mounted on Anna Griffin papers.

Come round for a cuppa

I bought a few 'tea time' stamps from Joanna Sheen a while back and this is the first time I've used any of them. They seemed just right for challenge 48 on Dutch Dare this week: 'blue, white and 1 other colour'. Stamping was done with Stazon ultramarine. On reflection, I think it might have been a better idea to have used a pigment ink and heat embossed - it would have given the china a bit of a glazed look - oh well, next time.

The gold surround is more even than it looks on this scan (I had to scan rather than photo because of flash glare on the pearlised card and gems).

Under the sea

A very simple card for Wednesday Stamper's 'under the sea' - the paper says it all, with the addition of a couple of die cuts and some stamped fish heat embossed with silver.

Dotty enough?

Challenge 7 this fortnight on Truly Scrumptious is to use this sketch, but also to 'go dotty' with spots, dots and circles:

I've made this card to the colour scheme on this week's Kwerner Design:

The background paper is DCWV pocket full of posies and various other bits and pieces (trying to use up some of the offcuts in my boxes - yes, boxes, not just one).
I hope that the use of the swiss dots cuttlebug embossing folder, the white pearl gems and the little piece of paper in the centre have enough dots/spots/circles to qualify for Truly Scrumptious.

It's Tilda again

For this card I'm using Maddy's sketch on this week's Copics Colour Challenge 13:

It's also for Color Throwdown challenge 42, to use these colours:
The background paper is BG ambrosia, the circles are Brenda Pinnick and the turquoise backing behind Tilda is DCVW pocket full of posies.
