Spring Greens?

This weeks challenge from
sponsored by

To me nothing says Spring like green grass and blue sky,
with a dash of Daffodil yellow :D
 I collected a selection of papers and peel offs
with the intention of using the peel offs to make
 an arty background...
but my craft room is moving so most of my stuff is boxed up :/
 Fortunately I could still get to my paper stash,
which meant I could create a scene for my image to stand in.
(Sky and real grass from Kanban)
 When fussy cutting I don't worry about land locked pieces...
I just colour them to blend in with what's behind them
(one of the many reasons I enjoy using my Promarkers)
 I also use them to match my peel off sentiments
to my projects...

Enjoy :D XXX

Pleasant Dreams?

Been playing with Rick St Dennis images again
and thought this fabulous lady would make an awesome
"best wishes" type card :D
 "Mama Mumba Voodoo Woman"
I coloured her with my Promarkers
before cutting her out.
 I had made the base card already,
layering a vintage paper from Debbi Moore
with several die cut lacy flourishes from
 Once all the layers were set I added
pearl drops to her necklaces and purse
 and a die cut sentiment*also Tattered Lace*
The acetate butterflies just needed to flutter in :D

Enjoy XXX

We were free to use our own images for this
challenge, and I wanted to make a Birthday card
for my very "grown up" 8 year old niece.

There is just something so ageless about flowers
in full bloom...
and bicycles with baskets :D
They recently acquired a little dog, and I couldn't
resist using this Tattered Lace die to make a copy of him.

Hot Stuff!

I love when I get chance to play just for myself,
and usually have several things on the go at the same time.
This week I got chance to work with one of 
fabulous new images 
which is a collection of wonderful ladies
including the sassy
"Chanteuse 2 Jazz Baby"
 I knew straight away I was going to use 
shades of coffee and chocolate for ths
"hot momma"
 with warm orange as the contrast colour.
 The swirls on her dress cried out for sparkle!!!
 This energetic patterned paper is definitely dark brown
but for some reason it showed up purple lol
and the added heat embossed feature is
*Slightly better colour in this photo*
I wanted a floral feature so got out my white paper flowers,
versamark and gold embossing powder...
I coloured one flower with "cocoa" promarker
and heat embossed the other....
fastened both together with a gold brad, which I 
then coated with gold pearldrops.
Can't you just hear those sultry tones
from "Chanteuse" Jazz Baby :D
