The little dancer

I have made this canvas collage for my granddaughter, using a wonderful stamp set from Lindsay Mason. I have added a doiley flowers, a butterfly, and used various paint effects. I hope she likes it - we are taking it over next week, but may get her Mum to put it away for Christmas
I would like to enter it in  the Craft-room challenge for Collage, and also Joanna Sheen  for so sweet

The challenge this week at Sweet Stamps is to use acetate.
I cut a rectangle in my card, and taped the acetate on the reverse.
The image is a peeloff which I stuck to double sided clear 'stuff' (I don't know what it is called)
I then rubbed in Glitter Ritz, coloured with copics, cut it out, and then stuck it on to the acetate.
I finished off with some decorative edging and a message

Going Dotty!

The Joanna Sheen Challenge this week is 'going dotty' so I thought this was a good entry for it.
I have made it for Max's 17th birthday using various papers from my stash. The 2 smaller letters are embossed with my cuttlebug.
The idea was given to me by the lovely Sara from Cardmaking Paradise -(see the links on my sidebar) check out all her wonderful templates!

Lace and Swirls

Today's card includes several techniques.
The background was embossed and then the raised swirls were lightly coloured with Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue and then embossed with Winter Illusion EP
The flower is stamped twice, the top layer trimmed back a little, and the colour was brought out using Cornflower, Arctic Blue, and Azure Promarkers.  I added a little KindyGlitz for sparkle, a piece of lace, and a large 'gem' in the centre.

I am entering the following challenges
Passion for Promarkers #165 for lace and swirls
Stamp and Create  for Anything Goes
 Pinkleart  for stamped flowers
