Well today i've got two cards to share with you,both DT cards,the first for Stamp with Fun which this week we have a sketch by Nikki our GD for you to follow,lovely sketch to work with...thank you Nikki! I've used "Dreamy Willow With Flowers" from the WOJ Summer 2009 kit.coloured with Distress Inks,cut out and raised onto a panel cut out using nesties with silicone gel.The papers and sentiment are all from Designer Digitals "Apple Dumplings Kit".The flowers have been cut out using Ek Success Retro Flower punches...small and medium.Self adhesive pearls from stash.

My second card is for Cute Daisy May,which this week the theme for the challenge is "Monotone",i knew as soon as i saw this what i wanted to do...i've created a frame using a spellbinders frame die,coloured the image which was taken from "Sheet 2" with Prisma's and Sansador to give a sepia effect,covered it with a piece of acetate and mounted it onto a base card,i wanted to make it look like an old framed photo.The flowers are a mixture of Prima's and others from stash,the leaves i've cut freehand and then painted them with several layers of copper H2'0,to finish i've added a bow made with ribbon from stash.Love these images,this one and many other cute ones can be purchased HERE.
Well thats all for now...hope you will come and join us on both challenges,a big thank you to all who joined us last week...and just alittle reminder that on both challenges you can use whatever images you like....can't be fairer than that!,
Hope you are all having a lovely BH,
Take care
