Romantic Wedding

I made this for the Marianne Design Challenge. I have used an art deco paper background and cream card for the die cuts which I have inked with distress inks.


For the Image I have used Don and Daisy Just Married DDS3303 and coloured with alcohol pens and framed them with the lovely Petra's Bridge LR0276 which I inked with Tea Die, the same for the corner LR0143. I made a 'bouquet' from CR1308 Lily of the Valley and LR0157 Lavender. I added some bought roses and an organza bow. 2 strips of lace to add to the vintage look and I cut 3 butterflies from LR0261 to which I added some pearls.

Vintage

My second post for today is for the Marianne Design Divas Challenge. I had this sweet image on my computer, not sure where it came from but there are a lot of sites offering free vintage images not subject to copyright.


I used Indigoblu paper for the background. Using cream coloured card I cut Petra's Bridge LR0276 as a frame and Vintage Corners LR0285.


I have a drawer full of mixed media products which I hardly ever use, so I am determined to try some new techniques. I have coloured with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and then used Stampendous Aged Gold which I have not used before to give the die cuts a vintage look. It's very random but I quite like the effect.


I used some gold coloured card to cut the leaves with LR0156 and mulberry paper to cut the flowers with CR1203 which I coloured with Vintage Photo. The centres are the stamen from LR0142 with tiny pearls. I found a strip of gold lace flowers to add to the vintage look.

Snowflakes

I've made another card for the Don and Daisy Challenge this time to coincide with Kreadiva's Snowflake Challenge.




Skating Don is dressed in blue. I've used blue and grey background papers and light blue card to cut the fancy square from CR1203. I used white card to cut the fence LR0205 and Snowflakes LR0125 and grey card to cut the leaves LR0192 and skis CR1252. The small snowflakes are from CR1252. I bought the 'snow' recently from a local craft shop. I'm  not sure if it works.

In the Pink

My first pink card for a while for the Pink ladies but they have an Anything Goes challenge at the moment so that's ok. I think I need to make myself a light box. I like to use natural light where possible when photographing cards but it's not always easy with these dull rainy days. Fortunately the sun came out for a short while today.



The background paper is Pink Paislee Spring Jubilee mounted on pink Bazzill card which I also used to cut the Anja Lace Border LR0201, Vintage Corners LR0285 and Bird Feeder CR1291. I used white card to cut the Marakesh trellis DF3416 and Lily of the Valley CR1308. The image is DDS3322 Daisy on a Bicycle. I have added some lace and stamped and cut out the heart sentiment and edged with Worn Lipstick distress ink.

Yellow Orchid

Thank you to Crafty Friends for choosing me as one of their top 3 on my very first attempt.
 A bright yellow card this time for the Butterfly Challenge blog following the Marianne Design sketch. This little swallow decided not to fly south for winter. Maybe not a good choice with all the rain we've been having.


I used yellow card to cut the Anja Border LR0201 and Vintage Corner LR0285 and cut the Orchid COL1379 out of cream and yellow card. I added some lace, yellow bow and a yellow butterfly.
