The challenge at Craftroom Challenges is for monochrome.
I have cut a trellis frame with my Cameo, and layered on to a deeper coloured base card.
I then cut a flower from some paper that I coloured with various Dylusions, and sprays, and attached it to the card. The label is sponged on the edges with DI dried marigold and the words are stamped with the same ink'
I hope you like it

Favourite Colours

The challenge this week at Passion For Promarkers is to use your favourite colour combo
I have used shades of mauve with a touch of green and yellow.
It works well on this stamp from a Flourish's set.

I used
Purple V546
Orchid V528
Soft Green G817
Buttercup Y417

I cut the card out using my new Cameo

This is the first proper card that I have made with my new Cameo Silhouette. I have used one of their free weekly files to cut this out, but finished it differently to their sample. I backed the cutout hearts with red card, and used the same card layered on gold to place near the bottom. I then added a suitable peel-off for Valentine's Day.

                                                            I have not had much chance to blog my cards during the holidays, but now visitors have gone, so today is the day!
This beautiful stamp is  from Elegant Spring Flowers set by Chocolate Baroque. I stamped and clear embossed it on a white tag, and then rubbed over it with Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue ink pad. The stamped image pops right out with this technique. I rubbed a little ink around the edge of the card, and attached some wee blue tags finished with  blue rhinestones. I then added a beautiful die cut that I won in a prize from Dies to Die for.

I would like to enter this at Sweet Stamps for die cuts and a flower stamp

Happy New Year

I had to make some New Year cards so took the opportunity to enter some challenges.
The card is embossed with Sizzix 'texture fade' I then highlighted the design by embossing with a sparkly EP. A new technique - it really makes the design stand out)  I then layered it onto white card (but not crooked like this scan shows!!) The letters have also been embossed with Ebony Shimmer EP. In real life this is so sparkly and festive, but it is extremely difficult to show it from a scan.
I would like to enter the following:-

May I wish all of my followers a Happy and Prosperous New Year
