My card for today is for 2 challenges, firstly for CASology where this week's theme is 'Drink'. As i don't have any cup/glass/bottle stamps I went for the idea of giving flowers a drink. The other challenge I'm entering is this week's Crafts 4 Eternity challenge of Tic Tac Toe.
I have chosen to use a Sarah Kay stamp coloured in using ProMarkers and Stickles for the water. The ribbon is from Ribbon Girl and the pearl heart ribbon slider is from my local craft shop. The roses are from eBay and the leaves are a Papermania punch. The papers are freebies from a stack that came with a craft magazine. The sentiment stamped onto the ribbon is from PSX.
I bought the lattice window card blanks from eBay many years ago and suddenly remembered I had some left. I have used Morsels tiny flower and leaf stamps from Sugar Loaf Products. I used my Promarkers to ink them up. I placed 4mm self adhesive flat backed pearls in the centre of each of the plum coloured flowers. On the inside, Tilda from Magnolia is coloured in using Promarkers and Stickles on her wings, then cut out and glued in place. The sentiment is by Docrafts and again I used a Promarker to ink it up.
I used my new Die-namics Mini Royal Rose die which I love and shall be using a lot more. The leaves are a Woodware punch. The frames are X-cut nesting dies. I created the sentiment on my PC and the heart stamp which I stamped, masked and stamped again is from Fancy Pants.
I came across another challenge blog that I liked the look of.......... CASology.
This weeks challenge was to use Blue so here is my creation.
Apologies for the poor quality photo's, I really struggled to pick up the colours of the pearlescent paper.
I've coloured Edwin in with ProMarkers and used stickles on his wings. I've used Xcut die cuts, buttons and diamantes from ebay, car punch, and for the first time ever I've used a sewing machine as I love this look on other people's creations. I still need some practice but am very greatful to my friend Lisa for lending me her machine to have a play with.
