Saturday sketch 427

Great sketch but I decided to make a  wall hanging instead of a card

I used a bit of MDF that I rescued from the Rubbish what my husband see's a s rubbish I see as potential craft
I covered it with wallpaper
I went to one of the wallpaper shops and got a  sample book of wallpaper that had been deleted
great for the grand children as well
I then unraveled some hessian around the edges then glued it onto card  I used PVA glue as it dries clear I also glued the unraveled edges to stop them from unraveling further  I then cut the circles with the cuttle bug
This is the lace I used to put under the hessian
After gluing
The embellishments I used
Some were bought,some cut with the cuttlebug and some with the scan n cut
The full green leaves I used a embossing tool to make the leaves more real looking
And this is the end result
The sketch was meant to have a sentiment on it but as its not a card I didn't put one one
Can't really see the lace cut outs with the photo but they are noticeable
Added some lady birds kindy glitzed the flowers
All in all I am quite pleased with how it turned out

Am putting it in the Sketch Saturday challenge

  So I have been looking at this and the more I looked I have decided that there is too much greenery, so I have cut back the leaves in the middle by the ladybird and I think it looks much better

wings and things

Have made a start with the dreaded Christmas Cards and since my children help themselves to my cards I end up making a few, not that I mind really quite nice to think they like my cards enough to give them away

 As we have a summer Christmas I like to do some non traditional Christmas cards Printed the image coloured with copics put kindy glitz on her wings and the stars  cut the image with a spellbinders die found the Backing paper in my stash just worked perfect with my choice of colours added the ribbon the adhered backing paper to white base card made the yellow and purple flowers with a poinsettia die  then added a flower from my stash greenery is a die and punch

Am entering them in these challenges 

Things that glitter

Have made a start with the dreaded Christmas Cards and since my children help themselves to my cards I end up making a few, not that I mind really quite nice to think they like my cards enough to give them away

Have had this stamp for a wee while now and this is the first time I have used it I stamped two of them cut the bear and duck out so I could attach them with foam coloured with copics distress inked the edges kindy glitzed the ornaments  for a bit of sparkle stamped sentiment

Another of my new dies is this Filigree Hearts

Cut the base card with the Cuttle Bug and as the biggest die was not quite long enough I cut it half way then turned it around for the other end 
I did the same with the blue baking paper
 The red card and the image were to size
 The smaller hearts Die is in a row of 6 so I cut them up to put on the card 
The 3 little hearts were from a punch 
The sentiment was stamped
The image was coloured with copics 
The wings were coloured with Kindy Glitz 

Am entering  in these Challenges

Have done this card to put it on The Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge and although didn't necessarily have to use stars was ideal to go with the image


 Green card I embossed with a star folder The image is from a mega bundle I bought at some time ago
 ( I don't remember who from)
cut the sparkly stars out with the scan n cut the star on the image I glittered
Very quick and easy card to do

white with a splash of colour

Just got a new die baby mobile  had to try it out and in my box of embossing folders found the baby folder so it was only logical to me that they should go together

So here it is a pink mobile adhered to the top of the baby embossed folder little bow added
And here it is adhered to the middle of  baby embossed folder little bow added
Am putting both of them on the get creative challenge

Had this sketch to follow

 Two of my favorite people, might just have to give this to my husband for our wedding anniversary

card embossed  and adhered to white base card
sentiment done on computer and distress inked the edges I like to distress ink the edges on
And as Stella and Gus are digi stamps they can be played with so here is what I have done with them
