Summer Gardening...



I was having a root around in my scrap paper box this morning and came across these papers so decided to make a card with them.  I can't remember where they came from as they are about 10 years old.

I have coloured Tilda with promarkers and paper pieced her dress.  I then doodled some pencil lines to give her some movement. To get her to look as if she was holding the trowel I cut slits and threaded the trowel through.  The trowel was part of an old sticker set.  The watering can has been die cut from silver mirri card.  The fabric flowers are from my stash and I have added some large pearls to the centres. 

My card stopper panel has been layered with card and more paper.  I added some ribbon threaded lace to the top.  Finally I attached a sentiment which says "To a lovely grandmother on your special day".

Out Of This World...



Here is a quick, fun card for a child made from a magazine freebie download.  First I covered my base card with starry hologram card and then added my printed background.  I then cut out my flying saucers and attached them with foam pads along with the sentiment.  I then added glitter glue to the stars and some goggly eyes to the aliens.

Santa



I bought these stamps by Docrafts a couple of weeks ago and had a little play with them this morning.

My image has been coloured with promarkers and I decoupaged his hat with foam pads.  I then added some flock so that it was tactile.  A little tree charm has been added to the sentiment.  Oh, and an embossed background.

Believe




Today I have made a cute little fairy card using a digi stamp from Whoopsi Daisy and colouring her with promarkers adding glamour dust to her wings.  I then attached a stamped tag with a brad.  The gorgeous papers are from Pink Petticoat and sadly no longer available.  A few large pearls from my stash finishes the card off.
