Rainbow Lady's Challenge - With a flourish

Over on Rainbow Lady's challenge blog this week we want you to do it with a flourish, now you could use a die cut or a stamp, well anything that produces a flourish. I decided to use one of my newest stamps bought from Port Sunlight, I used a multicoloured nk pad to give a variation to the colour and really like the way it had turned out.
The bunnies are a stamp from LOTV and to finish it off I have added a bit of ribbon and a few pearls.
I do hope you can come and join us we are once again being sponsored by Steph of Crafting.co.uk

CD Sunday - Die Cutting or Yeehaw!

Good morning all, over on CD Sunday this week we are spoiling you as we have a choice of challenges. We had a vote and couldn't make up our minds so decided to go with two, I chose to use the die-cutting and to be honest you will have to look to find it :)
I have used an image from the Enchanted Dreams cd from Joanna Sheen, I have printed the backing paper onto conquerer paper to give it a bit of a shimmer.  I don't know how I did it but on of the edges was totally squiffy so as it was my last piece of blue had to try and rescue it as no matter how much I tried I couldn't get it to look anything but awful, I decided to cut the offending corner off and emboss the card behind it but me not knowing when to stop decided that maybe a bit of glitter wouldn't go amiss. Not too sure if it's a bit OTT but hey it's not wonky, the image is printed onto 160gsm text and graphics paper and then printed a mirror image on acetate. I glittered the paper one and put the acetate on top so you get the sparkle with no shedding. 

I added an embossed border and some ribbon and here is where the die cutting comes in I used a small oval die to cut the blue and a scalloped on to cut the paper to stamp the sentiment onto.

I do hope you can come over and join us again this week as we love to see you. xx
