Petticoats Three

Good Morning blogger peepers! 
I hope you're all having a good week so far!
Here's another little card from me!

I went a bit out of my comfort zone with this one!
The image is Petticoats Three from Just Inklined.
I used an Elegant Square card base then added some Kraft paper, 
which was recycled from a paper carrier bag. I did toy with the idea 
of really scrunching it up but I just couldn't! 
I tore the edges then added some design paper which I got in a 
goody box from Craftwork Cards. I tore the edges of that too & distressed 
with Spun Sugar distress ink.

The image was coloured up with a selection of Promarkes & Flexmarkers,
Then I tore the edges & distressed again using the Spun Sugar distress ink.

The organza ribbon & twine were recycled from a gift.
The flower is one of many I got from Lee, aka Crafty Loops ages ago!
(I am so careful about using them as they are so nice! lol).
I gave that a bit of the Spun Sugar treatment too & added the little
 pearl spray from my stash.

I added a little sentiment ticket which is by The Crafty Pad Designs
& a little photo corner tag secured with a brad.
Forgot to mention the die cut doily which is a Mariannes Design Die!

Monochromatic Whoopsi Daisy!

Good morning lovely blog peeps!
Here I am with my DT card for the brand new challenge over at 
This fortnight, the theme is Monochromatic.

As you can see I have gone for shades & tones of brown.
The only deviation from brown is a tiny touch of blush on the skin tones!

I have used the fabby sketch 

for the basic layout of my card sadly I missed that challenge!

The image I have used is from our sponsor
I used a comb of FlexMarkers & ProMarkers to bring them to life.
I used a Nestie to cut them out &  inked with Old Paper distress ink.

I added a seam binding double bow & also a button with a length of 
seam binding threaded through & tied in a knot.

the sentiment ticket is from My Grafico
The papers are from First Edition

Here's a last little look!
Thanks so mch for stopping by!
I hope you can join in our challenge this time!

Just A Plane Birthday Card

Good morning blog hoppers!
I hope you're having a good day!
Today's card was made just or fun!
It's for my great nephews 2nd birthday today!
Happy 2nd Birthday Aryan!
As he's a real rough & tumble little boy & I wanted to make 
a card which wasn't too babyish for him!

I used Kraft CS o make a 6"x6" base.
The image I have used is High Flyin  Mouse from  Rick St Dennis
The layout is from this weeks sketch 

I coloured him up in primary colours uing my usual combo of 
FlexMarkers & ProMarkers then fussy cut around the image
& placed on a mat of Kraft CS.

The papers have been in my stash forever & are by papermania.
I distressed the edges using a pair of errated scissors.

Buttons & twine were the only added embellishments.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed your visit!
