High Hopes/Cute Card Thursday challenges


The challenge at High Hopes this week was to use piercing on your project. I have used the Gorjuss- Sitting stamp which I just love. I coloured her with my Derwent Inktense and then matted her on some patterned paper and blue Bazzill which were cut from my Nesties. ( I totally love these and need some more sets I think!)I pierced all around the edge of the blue Bazzill but you may have to click on the image to get a closer look at it. The papers are from the K & Co Amy Butler Belle pad and I added a couple of glass beads to finish. Haven't put a sentiment on yet, can't decide who to send it to

This weeks Cute Card Thursday challenge was Floral Fantasy, you had to use flowers in your project. I used some lovely K & Co paper covered in roses and one of my new Gorjuss stamps. The image is watercoloured and matted onto some gold card. I placed it on some foam pads to give it a little lift. The scalloped sentiment is from Stampin' Up! set Oval All and is punched out with the SU oval scalloped punch. I stamped the sentiment in Stazon Blazing Red. Finally I added a couple of small flowers with a gold spacer in the centre.
thanks for looking and for any comments you leave
