Bah! Humbug! Challenge #29 - Paper Tearing

Over on Bah! Humbug! this week the challenge is paper tearing, well I was almost going to pass on this one because I have been hoarding this paper and haven't managed to cut into it never mind tear it! I decided at the last minute that I'd give it a go so here is the result, the panel is one of the new embossing folders from Docrafts which a friend brought into work for me today, she picked them up at the weekend which was very good of her.

I have used some green ink dusted lightly over the panel and around the edge of the paper both of which are layered onto red silk mirri card, I coloured a white ribbon with promarkers and put it across two sides of the card and added a bit of bling but decided it needed something else and so found some flowers and thought this colour picks up the background a bit. I added some gems into the centre of the flower and fastened it onto the card with pinflair gel, the gems were plain but I coloured them with the promarkers too.

It's a girl!

I've been asked to do a new baby card and this is what I've come up with, the image is coloured with promarkers as is the mat and the words so they are all the same colour. I love this MS punch and use it quite a bit, I have used the same backing paper inside with the verse and baby details printed in pink onto white paper and again punched down the sides, just hope she likes it!

CD Sunday - Anything Goes

Good morning all, well it's Sunday so that means that over on CD Sunday we have a brand new challenge for you and this week we have decided that you should have an easy week cos it's anything goes. You can make anything you want and as long as it has something from a cd on it it qualifies, this week I've used an image from My Craft Studio, The Collectors Edition. I know some people don't get on with this range of cd's and to be honest when I first got mine I wasn't overly impresed but not one for buying things to just sit on the shelf I played about and now I have a whole range of them and find them really useful.

I've made the image by finding the table in one of the folders and then bringing in the bear who is drawn to look like she's sitting on something, I know that you can change the colour to anything you want but I just happened to have a sheet of Basic Grey paper with the pink and yellow in it so left it as is. I cut a couple of circles out on my Cricut and put them through the Cuttlebug then I spritzed them lightly with some silkies and to finish off I put some gems around the outer edges, rather that use the same colour I put the brown on one side and pink on the other, the dotty ribbon is from my stash.

I do hope you'll join in with us this week and don't forget we are getting closer to the start of our sponsored challenges so keep checking for more info!
