Like My Hat ?

Good Morning,

My Crafty Friends, Visitors and Follower,
Hope you are ok and can you believe  we
are nearly at the end of September, boy how fast
as this year pasted?.

Today we are starting our new 
challenge  214  over at :-


The challenge theme is

Feminine 

and its been chosen by yours truly ME

The girls have been working hard to
create designs to inspire you, so please
take a moment to view their work and
if you can, leave them a comment.

I have chosen to use an image from the

Passion For Fashion

You can purchase it and others by clicking on 
the link   HERE.  There are also some great
freebies too,  so well worth checking it out.

The prize for the winner will be
2 digi downloads from the Ooh La La Creations Store


DETAILS
1. Using a 7 x 7 card blank I made it into an easel card. I
then matted the top with green card from my stash.

2. From the cd Passion for Fashion I printed off the topper
and two background papers.  I really like this image as
looks so sophisticated and I  think she is a perfect
  Before attaching the top
paper I added a green spotted ribbon, to this I added
a ribbon slider before attaching to the easel section
of my card.

3. Next layer again was green card, added at a slight
angle and then the topper added to this using foam
tape.  Again this was angled.

4. The base for the card was covered with the other
backing paper and I stamped the sentiment
(Today is all about you) onto more green card
and then die cut using a S/B frame die. To
add some sparkle to the sentiment I added clear
gems around the frame and added it to the card
with foam tape to created the stopper for the card.

To complete I have added silver swirls to two corners
and flowers from my stash.

Thanks for Calling
Until Next Time
Take Care and Happy Crafting

Monochromatic

Good Morning,

My Crafty Friends, Visitors and Follower,

I hope you are all doing well?

soon be drawing in and it will Christmas before
we know it.

I would like to welcome my new follower
Laine  Kammeraad.

Today sees the start of challenge 78 over at

Emerald Faeries

The theme for this challenge is

Monochromatic

If you are not sure about the theme, let me explain
all that it means is using one colour but in different
hues  ( Colour tones).  Need more help? then

the great cards my team buddies have done .


Our sponsors for this challenge are:-

Wild Orchid Craft
Prize £10 Gift Voucher

I have made my card using the new image from
Emerald Faeries and her name is JEWEL.

DETAILS

1. Card is 8 x 8 and I have matted it with backing card from my stash.

2. Next layer is brown card and I have embossed it using the butterfly
embossing folder from Crafters Companion.

3. I then look the both backing cards and before I adhered them to the
card I wrapped a piece of brown lace across the centre.

4. The image was printed onto Neenah card and I have used my new
Derwent Inktense Pencils to colour her. As I am using shades of
brown only the pencils I have used are:- Madder Brown and
Dark Chocolate. I then used water to blend the colours and
give the shading. I then die cut the image using a Tattered Lace
die and used Tim Holts distress ink Vintage Photo around
the image.

5. The image was mounted onto the card using foam tape and I
have added brown pearls at each corner of the image and at
the corners of the embossed card.

To complete I created a bow also from brown lace.

So there you go, my take on a Monochromatic card
Cannot wait to see your creations.

do appreciate them.

Until Next  Time
