Challenge #32

Good morning all first off I would like to say "Thank you" to everyone who stopped by during the past week and a special mention to those of you who left comments, I really appreciate getting feed back on my work, or even if its just a quick hello, it's nice to know that people have taken the time to visit my blog. 

We were thrilled with the amount of entries we had for last weeks challenge over 90 beautiful projects, our job choosing our favourite is becoming near on impossible, in a good way of course :)

Prize 5 images
DT Prize
This week at Through the purple haze challenges we have a double team challenge and we are very lucky to have two fantastic sponsors  who both gave us images to work with so we've had a very busy week indeed with lots of fab creations from our DT

For my Milk Coffee card I got the beautiful Fairy queen stamp to work with and this is what I made with her

I coloured the image using Promakers in sepia tones the colours I used were
  • Dress - Shale
  • Cinnamon
  • Dusky Pink
  • Satin
  • Hair - Shale
  • Primrose
  • Vanilla
  • Skin - Dusky Pink
  • Blossom
  • Ivory
  • Blender pen
  • Gold Gel Pen for wand and crown

The card is an A6 cream card layered with brown card and the top layer is embossed with a floral embossing folder. I handmade the large white flower the others are from my stash as is the ribbon and bling  The sentiment is from crafts u print.

Challenges I would like to enter this card in to are:
The abc-challenge - G is for girls
Bearlymine-challenges. - One for the girls
cardsgalorechallenges - Use a stamp or digi
Ilovepromarkers. - One for the girls

My second card is made from a free printable  from Crafts u print this link will take you to the four free sheets they have available for everyone to download so be sure to visit them.  

When you download the sheet it is full A4 size with decoupage elements and sentiments. The beauty of this type of crafting is you can resize and use as you desire. I shrunk it right down to make a topper from it and added Music note punch outs and layered it onto contrasting coloured card

The card base is DL size white card which has been matted and layered with a wine coloured card and white and purple floral card (both from Payper box). I used a papermania multi punch to add the corner detail and I  finished the card with a purple coloured wide ribbon and bow. 

Challenges I would like to enter this card into are :
Bearlymine-challenges - One for the girls
Treasuredtimesrubberstampschallenges - Anything goes with lots of layering

Thank you for visiting today and don't forget to stop by the main Blog for more fantastic inspiration from my fellow DT
Until next time
