At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Ribbons.We have the fabulous Art by Miran 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.

Here’s the sweet Fashionista¬†from¬†Art by Miran¬†and she’s been coloured with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers.I just couldn’t resist enhancing those big ol’ blue eyes further with some 3D Crystal Lacquer.Just love these Summery feel papers ūüôā One of my favourite corner punches has been used on the layers and a border punch on the vertical strip so that it could be woven¬†with ribbon.I cheated…gasp!…by adding the bow separately to avoid fiddling about ūüėČ The flowers are two different punches layered with a gem added to each centre.

As soon as I saw this adorable Birthday Pug by 2 Cute Ink¬†I knew I had to play with him!My DD1 has a real thing for these little dogs since she saw then being dressed up in a series of ads on the TV a little while back so I thought I’d jump in and make a card for her birthday in October!!He’s been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers.Couldn’t resist glossing up his eyes and nose – and the camera has actually picked it up ūüôā The sentiment isn’t actually on the original image,it’s been stamped on.I chose a mix of colourful papers to go with him.An arch shaped die was used to cut and layer him up.I’ve ¬†used my favourite corner rounder punch on all the backing pieces.The rosette/flower thing is made up of punched,folded circles adhered to another punched circle.Some baker’s twine and a button have been added to finish.

I can’t take all the credit for this card.I had a lot of help from my DS2 especially with the colouring.After showing him how to blend Polychromos pencils on the top of Emo Cowboy¬†by Just Some Lines’¬†¬†hat he did it by himself,well with just a little¬†interference¬†guidance from me ūüôā He picked it it up so quickly and was pleased with the results.For the rest of the card we picked out these cowboy themed papers and some corrugated card.The horseshoe was cut from one of the papers and some brads were added to it.We also decorated the rest of the card with a few more.The sentiment came from a set that was a magazine freebie,trimmed into a banner shape.

Sentiment : Past magazine freebie

Meet the sweet Sunshine Gal¬†by Delicious Doodles.She’s been coloured with Copic Ciao & Sketch Markers.A little white Souffle pen has been added to the ice cream.I did coat the lenses of her sunglasses with 3D Crystal Lacquer but it hasn’t done the courtesy to show up ūüė¶ To compliment her bright colours I dug out these tropical papers from my stash along with some self-adhesive cork.As you can probably see I’ve done a fair amount of tearing here ūüėČ Including the rolled roses.After punching two sizes of circles I then tore round the spirals and for the leaves are just freehand tearing.Edges have been distressed to keep in with the look.A couple of pearl topped pins and some paper twine complete the card ūüôā

We’re taking a little Summer Break at Just Some Lines.But never fear will we be back!!

I would also like to thank everyone who played along.It’s been a real pleasure looking at all your cards/projects ūüėÄ

Here are a couple of cards I made featuring Emo Allium and Emo Daffodil¬†.You can find these gorgeous gals at Just Some Lines.Both have been printed onto watercolour paper¬†and,yes you’ve guessed it,watercoloured!I got out the AquaMarkers for a little play…The sentiments were also stamped onto offcuts of the ¬†paper and painted¬†in the same way ūüôā I chose these fetching¬†My Mind‚Äôs Eye A Beautiful Life papers to compliment them,enhancing the plainer panel pieces with some embossing.I stood each on a short length of ribbon and added punched border along with a duo of die cuts.These are intended to be for my DS2’s Teacher and TA even tho’ the term doesn’t finish until July.Nothing like getting ahead ūüėÄ I usually scrabble about at the last minute,handing them in as the glue is drying!!Altho’ I haven’t got the presents organised…yet ūüėČ These young ladies may also appear on a handcrafted gift or maybe a tag later…
