Little Dog Card

This was a bit of a quick make card. The image is a free digi stamp - no idea where it came from I'm sorry. I printed it large with the message then coloured with promarkers. It's supposed to look like a shih tzu - what do you think?

Cardmaker of the Year Entry 2

Bit happier with this one. I think it turned out better than I expected although not quite how I saw it. I used a paper pad I've had for a while and used it to cut some squares and rectangles which I added false stitching to in brown. I extended some lines too onto the kraft card background. Then I stamped a flower, a Dimension Fourth stamp, onto the same patterned paper and cut out. I did the same with the butterfly. I added pearls and also a bit of promarker to the butterfly and flowers. It was based on a card I'd seen online but was my own take on it. Wish I had more time to do a third but there you go...

Cardmaker of the year entry 1

Well, this is the first of my 2 entries I am sending for the 'Cardmaker of the year' competition. I've really not had time to spend on this as I expected this summer. This also explains why there is only 2 when I could send 3. I did have a 3rd but it went really wrong at the last point and I don't have time to do another so just going with the 2. I don't think I've positioned my balloons quite right in this. The light isn't quite right in the photo but the clouds are glittery. There are other bits I'm not happy with but you know I'm never satisfied. The balloons are Clarity stamps and the stencil background is a stencil of my own making (on the Brother Scan'n'cut) but based on a Clarity one. The clouds were cut on the Brother too.
