Danielle's Birthday Card

Hi
Here is my my inspiration project for this month's challenge over at Craft-deebowz.
It was my Daughter's Birthday in September so I made this pretty card for her . Danielle likes to frame her cards so I very rarely add a Birthday sentiment to the front of the card . I used the pretty digital image from Delicious Doodles called Blossom which I coloured with Spectrum Noir Illustrator Pens.


 I made the flowers using a creatuive expressions die set called perfect peonies.



The butterfly border was a die from Tim Holtz ..The stamped sentiment is from Pink Gem ..



The stunning bow was created using my Craft-Dee BowZ Bow making Tool ..

Hi
It is time for the new monthly challenge to begin over at Craft-Dee Bowz .The theme of the challenge is as always Anything goes with a handmade bow. The  Sponsor for this months challenge is the fabulous Bugaboo Digital Stamps.

For my DT project I have made this cute Happy Halloween card using the digital stamp called Goth Girl from our sponsors and you will find her HERE
I used creative expressions papers by Teresa Collins. The  rectangular stitched frame Die was also from creative expressions. The pumpkins, spider ,spider's web and bat are all thinlet dies from Tim Holtz. The large ornate oval frame is from sweet Dixie dies.
I coloured the cute Goth girl image using promarkers . The sentiment is a stamp from Stampin up


The magnificent bow was created using my Craft-Dee Bowz Bow Making Tool .It creates perfect easy to do bows every time and I love it....

Create with your soul Art board







Hi all
It is Tracey here with my inspiration post for this month .. I have been doing a lot of mixed media pieces lately and thought I would create something in that line for you this month instead of a card . The pretty ribbon I had from my MPP pack inspired this piece . The ribbon colour was a perfect match for my blue distress inks..
The art board is 18cm tall and is made of MDF . I painted the base and sides with black gesso. I prefer to work on mountboard  rather than straight onto mdf for my techniques as it has a lovely smooth surface and reacts well to lots of mixed media techniques,.so I cut 2 pieces of mountboard for the front and back of the mdf piece . I then inked them  up using tumbled glass ,broken china and peacock feathers Tim Holtz  distress inks . I used black versafine ink and stamped the foliage using sheena douglass stamps. I cut a smaller mountboard square ,inked it in the same colours and stamped the sentiment onto it . the sentiment is one I have had for a while and I think it was from visible image. I also added a freehand edge to the sentiment just it finish it off.


The triple looped bow was made using my Craft-Dee BowZ bowmaker . It is my go to bow creator as it makes perfect bows every time so easily you can get yours HERE
 

I added a pretty flower to the bow centre which I made using an Ek success flower punch and a swirly vine embossing folder to give the flower texture.
The butterflies are made using a crafters companion mixed media butterfly die set.
