This weeks challenge at Pear Tree Designs is in the form of a sketch set by Donna :

Our sponsors this time are Lilac Lemon Designs and they are offering 2 stamps – Ballet Shoes and Plane.I own some of their stamps and I can say just how good they are.So why not pop on over become a Follower and grab yourself the chance to win!!

I just LOVE this stamp.Well I don’t think there are too many I don’t like!But she’s such a sweetie.I thought I’d use some nice  fruity Summery colours to go with the (little) bit of sunshine we’ve had of late.She’s been coloured with Promarkers and I’ve applied Diamond Stickles to the edges of her wings and ends of her antennae.I’ve sponged Desert Sand Memento ink around the edges.The papers are K & Co and the coloured card is Core’dinations So Mod.I’ve created the pelmet using a Martha Stewart Scallop Two Dot  punch and inked it.I used my Crop-o-Dile to fix the hexagonal eyelets then threaded some ribbob I cut from a top.They’re the pieces that hold it on the hanger.I used a Lip Pattern punch on all corners.

I just love these Mouser-kins stamps so much I just had to use one again!She’s such a darling isn’t she?I thought I’d go for a much softer look by using tonal colours.She’s been coloured with Promarkers and the edges have had Tea Dye,Tattered Rose and Aged Mahogany Distress Ink applied.The quote from Hero Arts Anytime Messages sheet has been edged in the same colours.Both pieces have been cut using Nellie’s Multi Frames Dies Ovals and Squares.The paper is K & Co and the corners are cut using an inverted corner punch.To embellish the card I have used a length of Raffia Lace,a piece of ribbon,a button from the fabulous Bag-o-Buttons (it has a large hole in the middle so I was able to thread both ends of the ribbon through before tying) and a Papermania brad from the Reds and Pinks pack.I decided to make the embellishments the elements at the bottom on the original sketch and kind of pile them one on top of the other.And take note I’ve used ANOTHER button!!Just the one this time I’ve got to make them last you know.

The challenge at I Love Promarkers was to follow a sketch with a twist where you weren’t allowed to use backing papers and  to create your own.

Here is the sketch:

I’ve used another Mouser-kins from Faerie Song Rubber Art Stamps.Isn’t she gorgeous.She’s so curvy and certainly no skinny Minnie (Mouse)!Coloured with Promarkers and the butterflies have been given some sparkle with a clear glitter pen.I’ve also used some Fantasy Fibres to give the wings a fairy-like glisten.

As per usual I found it  difficult to capture it but here’s a close up anyway:

If you click on the pic it will take you to a closer view.

With all the shimmery stuff going on I’m entering this for Pollycraft Monday Challenge where the theme is ‘Sparkly things’,a second entry for S2G Challenges ‘Pastels’,Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge ‘Spring has Sprung’ theme,Lots To Do ‘Springtime’, Our Creative Corner to create a Spring/Easter card,Allsorts ‘Spring is in the air’, Stamp Simply to create a clean and simple card with texture and Pile it on ‘Pastels’.

The background has been made using a Big ‘n’ Juicy ink pad in Gumdrop,some flower stamps from the above set,Versamark,clear embossing powder and a brayer.Everthing has been matted onto Core’dinations Gemstones card.I stamped the sentiment onto the ribbon with Versacraft ink and adhered the butterfly to it using silicone glue.Some square gems add the finishing touches.I also used Nestabilities Labels 1 and a large corner rounder punch.

I’m sooo excited to show off my new stamp!! She’s sooo adorable!!She’s actually part of a stamp plate called Mouser-kins from Faerie Song Rubber Art Stamps.She’s been coloured with a selection of Promarkers and has ( although it doesn’t show ) clear Atyou Spica on the star.As the base card I’ve used is cream I toned down the whiteness of the card I stamped the image onto using Old Paper Distress Ink and gave some definition to the edges with the Tan Promarker.All papers are K & Co and the card is Papermania Textured.I’ve also used some raffia lace and grosgrain ribbon.Although it’s not on the sketch I couldn’t resist using a button especially as it matched so perfectly.I love these ones with the big hole in the middle and as much as it grieves me I REALLY need to use some of my button stash up before they take over the whole house.I’ve got buttons like you’d never believe!!I’ve also used my Lip Pattern Punch and a Martha Stewart Zig Zag Edge Punch.
