OMG with Kenny K!

Divas by Design have another challenge starting today & this week its being sponsored by Kenny K and the theme is Use Orange.
The team were very kindly given some images to use & I chose OMG & coloured her with Prisma pencils & mounted her onto a Marianne die cut. I edged it with TH Dried Marigold DI & added a little orange embossing powder as well. The papers were from my stash. I also used a MS punch to edge the paper underneath the topper. The lace I coloured with a Promarker & added organza ribbon in lime green & orange. I also used my newest purchases which are the La La land Banner & Magnolia Doohockey So Wrapped Lovely Heart, both of which Janice at Sir Stamp A Lot ordered & kept for me whilst away on my hols. I added more of the orange embossing powders to both to add a little texture.
 The twine I also coloured with Promarkers. The little sentiment stamp is again from Sir Stamp A Lot. Jewels & flowers all from stash.

Tilda & Present

I am back after having a fabulous 3 week s away at our house in Cyprus, 2 weeks with hubby, then 2 friends joined me for a week & boy did we laugh. This week has been manic as hubby has had hopefully his final operation on his knee & we can start looking forward to the New year, as this one has been so awful for us both.
Anyway, I made this card ages ago, but just didnt get around to posting it. I used Tilda on the Roof & placed her on top of an old stamp from Christmas 2009. Coloured with Prismas. Mounted onto a Spellbinders Nestie with Aged Scarlet Frantage around the edges. The Christmas die is a Marianne, again with lots of Frantage added. Vintage seam binding from stash, as are the flowers, ribbon & twine. The ticket is a freebie from blogland a long time ago.

CAS at Divas

Divas by Design challenge this week is Clean & Simple & is sponsored by 2Cute Ink, who gave us some images to play with. I chose Furry Friends & coloured with Prismas. I decoupaged the box to give some definition. The edges were distressed with Tea Dye DI. A little bit of ribbon & a computer generated sentiment completes the card. this was so hard to do, as its not my usual style, but its good to vary it once in a while.
This is a scheduled post as I am away in Cyprus for 3 weeks, so will look for challenges to enter as & when I can tear myself away from the sun.
