3 challenges today
I nearly always enjoy making cards, but today I was really "in the mood" so I made 3 cards for different challenges that I wanted to enter.
The first is for the Tilda & Co challenge of "Swirls". It gave me a good excuse to use one of my new Magnolia stamps (not that I need an excuse!) and doesn't Edwin look so cute? The background is some gorgeous dark blue miri card which has been through the cuttlebug, (thanks to my crafting friend Starcyl) unfortunately my scanner didn't like this cardstock. I've added some extra little swirls with a sakura pen and Edwin's balloons came from the Crafter's Companion CD.
The second challenge is for Ooh-la-la creations first ever weekly challenge of "Ribbons" and I've used a lovely vintage image of a wedding (I don't know where I got this image from, sorry) which has been mounted onto some pale lilac paper from K & Co, then onto some dark red gloss card and finally onto some beautiful white sparkly paper from Joanna Sheen's lovely shop. The card has been finished with an epoxy sentiment sticker and last, but by no means least some gorgeous deep red sticky ribbon.
The final card is for this week's Tanda Teaser challenge of "Bear Necessities". I very rarely use teddy bear images and now I've used two different ones in two days!
This image depicts a sweet little boy bear carrying a huge present and was a freebie download from Daisie Company (I think!), mounted on to some dark red gloss card and simply finished with a sentiment sticker from Papermania.
