Black and White

Hi everyone
Today's card is for the challenge at Artistic Stamper.
I have CASed a card that I saw on Pinterest, but used  different stamps. The top panel has a splatter stamp from Paper Artsy (with extra dots with a copic), the middle one is from Simon Says Stamp, (flowers coloured with a black copic), the bottom one is unknown, and the bigger butterfly is from  Cornish Heritage Farms set called All Things Considered., which I embossed and then also coloured with a black copic
They are all stamped with Gina K amalgam.
The ribbon trim is actually black card, and the 2 small butterflies are punched. I also used some spotty washi tape

Under the sea

Hello and welcome
This was a commissioned card - the request was for two diving buddies and underwater
I made a background in sea-like colours using various inks and paints and then stamped with my Kaisercraft stamp and versamark. I used 2 different ep colours for the seaweed. I found the diver images online, printed and fussycut, and also adhered some diecut starfish. All mounted onto a dark blue card
They were very thrilled with the result

Funky Flowers

Hello and welcome

Today's card was inspired by a video I watched by Gerry Van Der Velden. I have followed her instructions to make my background using distress oxides and a brayer. I then did my own thing by stamping with Stampers Anonymous word stamp through a stencil. I then stamped with these delightful flowers by Jofy and stamped again on scrap paper. I used the following Promarkers to colour the flower heads which are fussy cut and adhered 
C446 Marine
C426 Verdigris
C719 Pastel Blue
G956 Ocean Teal
I have added some cute buttons and also layered my sentiment with foam tape.

Hello and welcome back
Today's card was an experiment using paint and a brayer for the background. I made four while I had the equipment out, so you will see some more cards coming soon! I added some drops of water and some pearl embossing powder. This was a technique that I watched by Sara Naumann on her YouTube channel, but of course mine turned out a little differently. I stamped my flower with Brilliance 'pearlescent sky blue' and cut it out with my Scan and Cut. I added some diecut leaves and also some micro beads in the centre of the flower. This stamp is an old favourite that I have had a number of years

one for the guys!

Hi everyone
There are a few challenges at the moment for guy's cards, so here is my entry.
Stamped and coloured with copics and promarkers and cut out with a die from Stamplorations. I always have to adjust this to fit our size cards, as they are different from American sizes. I then layered onto a dark green card base.

Buttons and Bows

Hello and welcome

Today's card is for the Allsorts challenge, which is to use buttons and bows.
I cut a piece of DP and a matching plain colour which I used my scallop punch on. Layered onto white card and added a ribbon and buttons. I am not sure who the sentiment is by
