Anything Goes

I have been so busy with other things that I didn’t even know that my Thursday post for the Digi Doodle Challenge wasn’t there.

It is now, and what an adorable image I have used on my card, she is called Emily and the dog is called Scout from the Butterbeans Collection. Julie from Julie’s Craft Spot, picked the same image as me and I just adore the ribbons she put in Emily’s hair. Anyway nice easy challenge this week – ANYTHING GOES.

Do ya know what I swear this was me as a child

Shaker Cards

Play time with two very similar shaker cards, first card more muted colours, second one much much brighter and used a blue card instead of white..

Stamped flower with Versamark, then added white embossing powder. Inked over with TH Vintage Photo.
Cut out the stamped flower blooms inside the shaker and taped onto the same backing paper.

First card, cut out parts of the flower blooms and adhered double sided tape to place onto the backing paper. Second card I put foam pads behind the cut out flower petals then put onto the backing paper.

Brilliant, the diamond dust which I used for the shaker element falls being the petals in the second card and then comes back through one of the other petals.

MIA from Little Miss Muffett

Thanks sweeties for popping back to see what I have made with MIA one of the images from the Little Miss Muffet New Releases.

Used one of the smaller Craftwork cards then printed MIA onto a tag … coloured her with Promarkers first, but paper pieced her dress with extra added hi-lights from the Promarkers. Masked her off and inked the edges with TH Victorian Velvet. Added micro beads to the centre of the flowers … the middles so remind me of those sweets you get from Liquorice Allsorts.

Enjoy and then stroll on over to my teemies blogs to see lots of inspiration with all the other New Releases but also remember you still have time to enter the Little Miss Muffet Challenge.
