baby card

omg these challenges are taking over, thinking of them when trying to get some sleep,got up early to finish this before going to work
firstly stamped an image from beatrice potter crafters companion, cut some ovals with xcuts dies (that took a couple of attempts, embossed one with swiss dots, embossed the top one with my scrapboss, die cut loads of flowers leaves and twirls out of white card, did not know what I was going to do for the pins and needles over at allsorts, tried knitting with pins (not good)so sat in bed and stitched the new baby sentiment, found a papermania tag in my stash for the hoop,cut out the middle padded the material with a little cotton wool and made some pins with beads on.

Anyway used tatty teddy papers and other papers from my stash some made and bought flowers and some worn lipstick distress ink and a bow. thanks for looking and any comments anyone is kind enough to leave thanks angxx

shades of grey

The plan was this was going to be a card for Joanna sheen challenge, but also followed the sketch and challenge for polka doodle shades of grey.

Firstly stamped on to neenah card ,messey rabbits, coloured them with 3 palest grey spectrum noirs, cut out with my x cut oval, did not have any grey papers, so embossed a bit of card and swiped pumice stone distress ink over, chopped up the paper following the sketch on polka doodles, found a stamp from crafters companion in the love set, stamped it out twice next to each other with pumice stone added clear embbossing powder and heat embossed it.  It was a little tooo long so ended up just with the middle section, greeting from messy rabbit stamp, went round all the bits with pumice stone again.  added some diecuts from my new( well newest thing I have) floral doiley accents and made some flowers again, made this card for a wedding anniversary. thanks for looking ang xx
