I was intending to put on one of these cards yesterday but by the time I had waited for the glitter glue to dry on it so I could scan it (because I still can't get my new camera to take a decent photo!!) I was too tired to do it.
My first card is for The Cuttlebug Challenge which is to use glitter on a stamped image and also for 2 sketches 4 you which was a fab sketch again this week from Laura. It must be the name that makes her so talented lol.
Sorry it looks a bit wonky but I can't reach my scanner properly just now to get the cards in straight (long story).
I thought there was too much space up at the top when I had finished this card so I stuck a flower on it but I'm not sure about it. I tried to do something different with this one instead of cute and cuddly but I don't have much stamps that are not cute so I went with the fairy.
The large bloom paper is from imagination project and the other is from K&Co hopscotch mat stack and I used my new cuttlebug mesh folder on it. The flowers are from a local haberdashery and look prettier irl , little butterflies are made with a punch I've had for yonks and lace is John Lewis.
My second card today is for the Sugar Bowl challenge which is to make a card for a Mother. Doesn't have to be a Mother's Day card but just anything a Mum would like.
I have been wanting to use this stamp since I got it last week so this was the perfect oppurtunity. I have went WAY out of my comfort zone with this one. I never use papers like this but that's what challenges are all about right?
All the papers I used are from K&Co. Both the main papers I used are from the Margo range and are glittered. The image is coloured with copics as usual. I cut her out and left out the other bits of the image (apples and flowers) mainly because they would of been hard to cut out, but also because they didn't fit on the bit of paper I put her on and I had already stuck it onto my card ...duh, but I think she still looks nice without the extra bits.
The little strip on the side is from the hopscotch girl mat pad. I don't have a border puch yet so I cut it with fancy scissors and used a small punch to make the hearts. Flowers are all cut by hand and distressed with an emery board and edged with ink. The spacer is one I got today from a bead shop in town.
I have decorated the inside of both card swith the same papers but don't have pics to show just now.
I would really like to know what you think of this one as it is a very different style for me.
Hope you are all having a great day.
