Daring Cardmakers - Getting Punchy With It (Latest Punch Purchase)
This is the new card I quickly made for a friend to thank her for all the help she kindly gave me yesterday. I covered the base card with paper and put a panel of another paper down the left hand side. I then used my new MS punch (bought yesterday) to cut another panel (pearl paper) for the bottom of the card. The digi stamp image is coloured with pencils and layered using Nesties. The sentiment is stamped from a new set of stamps, also bought yesterday, and similarly layered. The flowers are made up using another new MS punch (Cornflower) and a Prima Got flower that has been sprayed with Glimmer Mist, although you can't see the subtle pearl effect in the picture.

Paperplay (40) - Parlez Vous (Another Language)
This is a card I made earlier this year to celebrate Chinese New Year. The colours red and gold symbolize good luck and this year it is the year of the Ox. The main image is a chrysanthemum which I simply stamped and embossed. The words 'Kung Hei Fat Choy' is what Chinese people say when they greet each other at New Year and means 'Congratulations And Be Prosperous'.
Charisma Cardz (43) - No Backing Paper
The Pink Elephant (39) - Brown/Yellow/Neutral/Own Choice (Green)
This is another card I made earlier this year and have never shown. Although the colour yellow is not very significant you will see that the flower on her hat is indeed yellow. The main image has been stamped and coloured with pencils as usual and layered onto brown and green card. The neutral backing is parch marque card. The sentiment has simply been stamped onto the backing card and peel-off borders to finish it off.

Stamp With Fun (31) - A Card With A Scene
Last but not least, another one I made earlier this year but didn't show. OK so I know I didn't 'make up' the scene with different stamps, but, it's still a scene so I think it should be alright for the challenge :-) This time I coloured the image with pencils but then applied water for a watercoloured look. The background is glossy photo paper which I applied alchohol ink to (the best bit I've ever done ha!ha!). I used bubble stickers to finish it off. Again, a simple card.
