When hubby gets up I'll be asking him to pull a name from the hat and will announce the winners late this morning. Good luck everyone and thanks for playing.
These 2 are from Larraine and I'm really pleased to see a parchment craft card. Parch is how I started cardmaking some 14 years ago and still remains my favourite. Sadly I don't seem to have the time to devote to it often :o(

Nestie and the back 2 layers of the flower were cut with scal and the cricut, the top 2 are clip punches. Leon Em punch for the leaves.

For the last few days it seems as the my mojo is still about but it's not working right and I havent really been happy with anything I've made.
This one is for the Truly Scrumptious challenge. Their sketch is lovely yet I've managed to make a real dogs dinner of it :o(
DCWV nanas nursery papers again (I love them lol), sage bazzil, pink ribbon and a paper doily that I've cut into.
Tingla is coloured with rv02, r02, r22, c03 copics with meadow green and spice promarkers on bristol board with some stickles on her wings. Papermania red pearls to finish.

This is for friday sketchers and will be stripped down and recycled within a few hours. A classic example of why I don't use magazine papers. Sketch is fab, love the flower and tilda is sweet but this freebie paper just hasnt taken the bookbinding or stick glue very well and looks dirty.
Tilda is coloured with light magenta, violet, burnt umber, walnut, phtalo blue with middle purple pink and juniper for the tulips. Forever flowers blossom and Leone Em leaf sprays. The nested shape is my own and cut with scal & the cricut.

Blogland is slightly different with many tending to be scrapbook style charachter stamping, vintage or Tim Holtz' whacky art yet we still see magazines filled with stick together projects and little of real techniques, so I decided to see who'd be up for a back to basics challenge on the Docrafts forum. Several people think it's going to be fun going back to basics so I'm going to spend the weekend ironing out the details via a trip to the NEC and will post the challenge here and there on Monday with some nice goodies up for grabs. Be warned though... no preprinted craft papers or diecutters will be allowed!!!!!!!!!

Thankfully it's all over now and I've had a couple of days to play with some Joy stencils for Art Of Craft.
This one is with some mottled paper from a Papercraft 4 You pad. Sadly it's my last sheet :o( but I've made sooo many cards with it. The fushia is from a Marianne Design paper and I've added pink pearls to match the pink gutterman thread.
Same paper and another Marianne 3d but I've used the stencil to create a shaped card instead of a border. Shh, dont tell anyone but that's because I didn't measure while making the 2nd corner and it isn't quite square so I couldnt use it as a frame lol.

Designed in psp, cut with scal. Background made with nick bantock inks & a stencil brush. Craftwork cards flourish stamp in plum versamark. Tilda coloured on bristol board with indianthrene blue, delft blue and violet f&c watercolour pencils. Stickles and loads of gems that I wouldn't normally put on but the card it will go on is for a girlie who loves her bling.
