Rainbow Lady's challenge #152 - Texture

Over on Rainbow Lady's challenge this week we want some texture! We are once again sponsored by Chi Chi digi images so well worth a look and hopefully join in with us.

For my card I have ued some of the Chi Chi images and put the picture together in Craft Artist printed it then coloured with ProMarkers, my texture is the bottom of the card which has been embossed to look like the sand after the sea has gone out. I think it's a great challenge this week and hope to see you there.

Card for Line Managers Mum

I was asked by my line manager to make a card for his mum's birthday, when I asked what kind of thing she liked and did he have any preference I was told something that mum's would like!

I hadn't made up my mind what I was going to do but sat and went through my cd's and when I started looking through the Joanna Sheen cd's I knew I was about to find something suitable.

I chose this image from Enchanted Dreams, the image is printed onto a matt photo paper which brings out the colour and detail so well. I have added glitter to the flowers around the hat but it doesn't show in the picture, the printed backing paper is the one that is meant to go with the image but this time printed onto a heavy weight vellum. I embossed some card which I also used to matt the picture on and added some ribbon and a little flower and finished it off with a stamped calendar sentiment. I have to say that the photo doesn't do it justice and for once I was pleased with the finished result, just hope his mum likes it.

CD Sunday - Let's go Oriental

Good morning everyone I have had nothing but trouble this morning and I was just about to give up trying to post but have given it one more go.

Over on CD Sunday we are going oriental and hope you can join us, for this challenge I have used an image from Joanna Sheen's Eastern Treasures which is printed onto a pearlised paper which gives the image a different look. The backing paper has a stamp on one side which has been embossed with silver.
