At Just Some Lines the challenge is Anything Goes this fortnight.Only projects made with Just Some Lines images can be entered.But the good news is there will be a freebie image posted on the blog for the duration of the challenge for you to use!Just pop on over to Just Some Lines to find out all the details.While you’re  there don’t forget to get inspired by the DT’s creations.

This will be the last challenge until 7th September as the Design Team are taking a Summer break.

So for my card I was wondering whether or not to follow my recent trend of merging Just Some Lines digi stamps and well,as you can see I couldn’t resist!I’ve  taken the Cherry Branch Springtime from Emo Amber Springtime Value Set and hung Bird house -tulips from it.They’ve been coloured with Copic Ciao And Sketch Markers with Liquid Pearls added to the dots.As I wanted the image to remain the focal point I’ve kept the rest of the card quite simple with distressed edges and pearls to match in with the Liquid Pearls.Paper twine has been wrapped around the bottom panel and more has been used to hand stitch the sentiment tab onto the image piece.Ruby Red Liquid Pearls have been used to coat the heart on the sentiment which was a freebie from a past issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.

At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is In the Garden.We have the fabulous Heather Ellis as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

For my card I’ve used Pure Innocence 012 by Heather Ellis and coloured her with Copic Ciao Markers.Her dress has been paper pieced.I built up a little scene using a Crafts Too die.Some of the butterflies have been placed as the y would according to the die,others I’ve used artistic licence 🙂 I die cut the frame and added some wooden embellishments.The toadstool top has had a piece of spotty adhered to the top to make it look like a Fly Argaric Mushroom.The stalk has been coloured with Copics as has the leafy frond.I stamped the sentiment onto one of the clouds to finish.
