Another Four Challenges I am All Blogged Out lolx

Here is my first card of the day its for the Pollycraft Challenge and that was to add flowers but you had to make them somehow. Anyhow hope this is okay as I used some paper I had in my stash and cut the flowers out of the paper, not very original I know but I thought it a good idea at the time. The image is a Joanna Sheen stamp which I haven't used for quite a while but I love these stamps, I coloured it using my Promarker pens and added a little sentiment kept it quite plain really.


My next effort is for the Just Cute Bears Challenge which was the above sketch. I have used a stamp from Cuddly Buddly and this time I have used some Whisper pens to colour the image in. To finish it off I have added a sentiment and some small Prima flowers.



This card is for the Sketch and Stash Challenge and I found this stamp when I was sorting out my craft stuff about a month ago and I am sure this is the first time I have used it. I used some bright striped paper as my base and took my colours from there really. Using my Promarkers to colour these sweet little angels in, added some of my new Prima flowers, which arrived today, from the people at The Craft Garden who supplied the prize I won last week from the PB Challenge and they are gorgeous, aren't they? I have added some flower braiding on the bottom and a sentiment to finish the sketch off.




The final card from me today is for a Spoonful of Sugar challenge, which this week was 3d. So using spring colours of greens and yellows, I used this stamped imaage my friend Becky sent me some time ago. I coloured two of the images in and then cut one Magnolia out and decoupaged the image, I think you can just see the layering at the bottom and on her little hat. This is such a lovely image of her. I added a sentiment and off course some spring coloured flowers. I think this is my favourite card of the day, but hope you like my efforts and thanks for dropping by. Love Arline x
