Flitter & Flutter

It's Jenny's turn to choose the theme this time around at CD Sunday Challenge Blog and she has gone with Flitter and Flutter. I couldn't resist using this image and backing paper from Woodland Fantasy CD by Peerless Designs. I have used die cuts and flat back pearls to reflect her headdress.

It looks like we are in for a bit of a heatwave but hopefully you have somewhere cool to craft and I look forward to visiting your blog. To join in please remember to use something from a CD and mention which one you have used.

Boys, Boys, Boys

Clarity's Challenge this month is Boys, Boys, Boys.

I used a Clarity stencil and two Distress Inks - Cracked Pistachio (January 2015) and Twisted Citron (May). These are two of the new monthly ones for this year.

I used one of the Wee Folk to stamp what I think looks like James Bond into the design.

I then took a micron pen and drew around the stencil and added a border. I then spent a while zentangling the shapes before using my Spectrum Noir pencils to enhance the colours. I didn't want to spoil what I had done with my writing so I used a black Spectrum Noir alcohol pen to change the colour of some peel off letters to add the words.

I then mounted my design onto black card and then onto an 8 x 8 green card.

Four Legs and a Tail

It's Carol's turn this time to choose the theme which is Four legs and a tail. Nice one for everyone this time I think. You'll find all the details of how to join in and lots of inspiration at CD Sunday Challenge Blog.

I've used the Pollyanna Pickering British Wildlife CD for my card this week. I started by covering a 7 x 7 card with one of the matching backing papers. I cut a mount for my chosen design using a Spellbinder die and coordinations card. I added little flat back pearls around the edge. The matching ribbon came off a present at Christmas time and it was just the right colour for this card.

I had some backing paper left over and used this to stamp some leaves using Versamark. I used three embossing powders - Gold, Silver and Verdigris making sure that as I applied each colour I only covered part of each leaf. I then added some flowers made from Kraft card and small wooden beads for the centres - a Poundland find!

I hope you have fun with this challenge and look forward to visiting your blogs.
