Zei Prom

Good Morning all!
Happy Halloween!
 I hope you are all well on this beautiful Thursday morning!
The weather here is a bit wet & windy but hey ho, we can't complain!
Anyhoo, it's time for me to share my card!

This is an 8x8in card base.
The layout I used was based on a sketch I spotted on one a challenge blog.
Sadly I can't enter their challenge with it as they require you to use one 
of their own images. That said, I do love the layout!
The image I have used is Zei Prom from Just Inklined.
She's just so very cute!

Here's a closer look!
I can see her being used for all sort of occasions!
I coloured her up with Promarkers. 
The edges were distressed using a pair of serrated scissors.
The border punch I used is Papermania!

The papers are by Craftwork Cards, as are the flowers which were die cuts.
I shaped & layered them for some dimension then added
 some ribbon & a little Card Candi centre. Don't you just love that zebra print!
As you can see in this photo, I added a strip of ribbon topped
with some black Jaipur lace from my stash! I also dotted some
Card Candi around.

I've added this photo to show you the dimension on the flowers.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you like my card!

Clean & Simple Autumn Colours

Good morning lovely crafty peeps!
It's time for the new challenge at 
Crafting For All Seasons where the challenge theme is
My card was inspired by the colours of the leaves on the trees
just round the corner from my house & out of the window where  work!
Here it is, I hope you like it!

The image I've used is Tequila Worm he's just one of the many 
different styles of image from our fab sponsor this time

The papers are from K & Co Hopscotch Boy Stack
I love these papers.
This is actually far from what I planned but sometimes I find 
a project tells me what direction it wants to go in! lol

I coloured the worm with my Promarkers, cut it out with a square die & inked 
with Antique Linen distress ink. Not sure you can see it that well, but 
I used a flexmarker to ground the image


The only embellishments I've added are some buttons which are threaded 
with some button twine. My sentiment was done on the pc using
a free font called Tequila which you can find here!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope to see you in the challenge!
