Cute & Sweet

Bizzy Becs Store is having a cute and sweet challenge this month.
This time I wanted to make something for myself to keep track of all the challenges I do
I found a book with blank pages and I have decorated it using Kaisercraft papers

I loved the letters but I ran out of blue e's so I improvised and pulled out the stickles and made a black one blue. I know it's not exactly the same colour but I still like how it has turned out

I have coloured up my fairy dust tilda who is sitting on some pennants

I have added Magnolia Dragon flies and swirls

Thanks for looking


Below is this weeks sketch
I have gone with some very fall colours
I have used another new stamp the cottage and teamed it up with my tickled pink 20s Evie

I have added flower soft to the tree and the garden around the cottage.
The Image has been coloured with Distress inks
I'm not sure if I'm completely happy with how this has turned out, it is also the first time I have tried masking
Thanks for looking

Male Card

More male birthdays coming up, I recently purchased the silhouette stamp, its very outback australia and will suit the recipient perfectly.
I have teamed it up with my Kaszazz gum tree

Both have been stamped with Colorbox chalk dark brown
I used the tutorial from make it crafty on distressing to get the background on the silhouette

I'm pretty happy with how this one has turned out

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly - Penny for the guy
Cards for Men - Anything goes

LOTV Challenge #71

Using the sketch from this weeks LOTV Challenge this is what I've come up with

Ted Balancing a gift would have to be one of my favs at the moment although I do have a few others in there as well
I have used my Basic Grey Jovial papers for this one and distressed the edges with Fired Brick

Ted has been coloured using Tim Holtz distress Inks
I think I'm slowly getting better

The flowers I found in my stash
