 This week at  Creative Knockouts is anything goes

For this card I tried something new making a stamp with a die cut There was a bit of time making this card  You cut two of your die cut using water colour card or something similar, you then ink them both one on the back side that is the one you drench in water and press to the card, I don't think I had the right card as mine did not stamp on the paper so well so after a couple of goes (that ended in the bin) I re inked the butterfly and pressed it to image then I left it overnight to completely dry

I adhered the image to pink card then onto a blue base card then added the top butterfly adhered a string of beads and stamped the sentiment

I think this might be a good thing for a favourite die cut, as I have many stamps, and I will use a  proper water colour card

Birthday Greetings

For this weeks challenge at Creative knockouts  is Birthday greetings with this image from KLM designs  gift wrapping gnome 

At one stage I really didn't like gnomes, but they are now starting to appear all around my house and in my craft room 

I decided to make this a man card, I printed out the image and cut it with my scan n cut ( love that machine) I then cut it out again with a border I then coloured him with copics the Happy Birthday is a die, where from I don't know, the backing paper is from my stash, the present is a button which I cut off the bit you sew too and it promptly fell to pieces glued it back up and adhered to card
