Totally Charming :)

cypdt30th sept 001

At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Add a Little Charm.We have the fabulous The Robin’s Nest 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 stamped out one of my much coveted and seldom used hAnglar & stAnglars.I just hope that if anything happens to me my DH has enough sense to put these on eBay and not throw them in the bin thinking they are just another piece of junk in my crafty collection.These are my children’s inheritance 😉 She’s been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers and very carefully cut out.I’ve teamed her with some pretty glittery papers and shimmery cardstock.A length of paper lace can just be seen popping out from behind the right hand edge of the vertical strip.Purely for decoration purposes and not because I forgot to punch the edge,you understand 😉 lol A number of die cut pieces have been added,including the layered up flower.From the centre of this a piece of chain from an old key ring dangles from a crystal brad.I attached a butterfly charm with a jump ring. The sentiment is part of a freebie set from a past issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.

Pretty sketchy

This week at Craft Your Passion we have a super sketch provided by Jenn :

We have the fabulous Di’s Digi Downloads as our sponsor too. Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

For my card I’ve used a hAnglar & stAnglar stamp from a set I bought aaaages ago on eBay.I can’t believe after hankering after these stamps for so long I’ve only just inked this one for the first time!She’s been coloured with Polychromos Pencils which have been blended out using low odour oils thinners with a paper stump to give a soft look.This was also to make her stand out against the papers.I think if I’d used markers she’d have been lost.I’ve used lots of buttons to finish the card.I’m pleased how pretty this turned out as I always feel this is one thing I struggle with 😀

Happy Boxing Day!Were you on the Nice List?Did you get all you wanted?Hopefully this post has appeared by the magic of scheduling as I’m out for the day at my P-I-Ls (lucky me!Hee hee)
