Happy Wednesday

This week over at Creative Moments the theme as always is Anything Goes, and the optional twist is Showers and/or Rainbows

Our fabulous sponsor for this challenge is 

I have used the image Gizelle Melancholy Moppet


I have coloured her with Copic markers and cut the image out with Spellbinders Astoria Labels, in fact almost everything is Spellbinders, the accent pieces are Decorative Swallowtail Tags.
The embossing folder is Fancy Tags Two and the greenery is Di D-lites Ferns
The only thing not Spellbinders is the blossom, made with an EK Success punch.

Ok I admit it I am a total Spellbinders addict and probably should find a support group :-)

Outlawz Greetings Challenge

Happy Monday

This week as always at the end of the month, the theme over at The Outlawz Greetings Challenge is 
Anything Goes

One of our lovely sponsors this week is 


My card uses the image - Playmate Pablo


I used several embossing folders for this card, firstly the white background is embossed with Creative Expressions 8x8 Textures - Linen, I have then used Spellbinders Steel Rule Die - Hexi & Friends to cut out the shapes and I also embossed them with an A2 Cuttlebug folder - Seeing Spots. 
I coloured the image with Copics and fussy cut it out, this is mounted on to a Spellbinders Standard Circles that has been embossed with a Cuttlebug A2 folder - Spots and Dots, I then used a brayer and some Versa Mark ink to the raised areas and heat embossed with a pearl embossing powder, this close-up shows it better


I finally mounted that on to a Spellbinders Pinking Circles.
The sentiment is from Trimcraft - Curiosity Corner Sentiments.
