Less is More - A Touch of Red

This weeks challenge on the Less is More blog is a touch of red, I stamped the image and painted the poppies with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink with a little bit of Shabby Shutters to do the stems and darken the buds slightly. I layered it onto a red mat and then stamped the sentiment straight onto the card.

Bah! Humbug! - Christmas Trees

Here's my card for the Bah! Humbug! challenge this week which is Christmas Trees, I have used some papermania backing papers and some fabby green ribbon and thenused the Cuttlebug to emboss one of my favourite trees, I used the Core'dinations papers and sanded it back to reveal the green below. Finished with some red pearls in the corners and a bit of glitter on the tree, have to have glitter at Christmas!

CD Sunday - Transport

Good morning once again, this is the fourth time I've tried to upload this picture. I've had to revert back to the old style editor to get it to work but not sure why. This is my offering for our challenge over on CD Sunday, I have a few youngsters in the family who are into the army and am very slow at making the cards for their birthdays so have decided to use the theme of transport to get ahead. The topper was done in Craft Artist Platinum and the dog tags have been glazed in an attempt to make them look more metallic. I picked out the colours on the star for the papers to mat onto and there it is finished. To be honest it's not really my kind of thing but the boys will love it! Do come over and join us, we love to see your entries.

Music and Movement

I've made this card for a swap and the theme is music and movement. I have used some Basic Grey papers after much thought, I love the papers and hate cutting into them! I also downloaded the music from Swan Lake which I coloured with distress inks to blend in. The image is a digi which I have coloured with Promarkers and added a little glitter to the dress and headband.

The flowers are from one of my favourite places Wild Orchid.
