Smile ....

Hi there.

There is a new challenge started today over at Bizzy Becs Store Blog for those who wish to join 
in.   Today I would like to share with you my card for the challenge.

I have been pondering over this die for a while, unsure how to highlight at it's best.  I am quite happy with how it has turned out, especially once I added some accents in the corners by way of some Twinklets Diamond Dust.  Sadly photo doesn't do the  diamond dust justice.

My background was created with watercolour crayons using a gelly plate - a new and fun technique learnt recently through a friend - Debra over at One Card at a Time and the leaf has been cut from green cardstock and paper pieced into the diecut rose.




supplies used:

Hero Arts  Infinity Dies - Rectangle
Sue Wilson Die - Rose Flower Square
Pink Fresh Die - Smile
Stamping Up retired embossing folder - Vintage Wallpaper
Stamping up Stamp Set - Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Twinklets Diamond Dust
Hero Arts - White Embossing Powder

Thanks for looking, until next time

Happy Crafitng

Mood Board Challenge...

Hi, this month I have played along with the March Mood Board over at Paper
Roses Community on Facebook.  Such fun and so many different options available to chose from on the board and as I have only a very small amount of Paper Roses products I am very happy with how
it turned out.




I have chosen oranges,yellows, reds and greens from this board and created a birthday card 
which will be given to a friend who has a birthday coming up in the next few months.




I used Distress Oxides for the background combining two different colours then ran it through an embossing folder.  I then created a shaker using the birthday greeting.
The peonies  and leaves were coloured using copic markers then fine tuned with Prisma 
Coloured Pencils.

I used the following items:

Paper Roses Stamp & Die - Peonies
Paper Roses Die - Happy Birthday to you Layered
Paper Roses Die - Stitched Rectangles
Assorted sequins & crystals
Copic Markers
Prisma Coloured Pencils
Distress Oxides - Peeled Paint and Stormy Sky


Thanks for looking

Until next time 
Happy Crafing
