SophistiCat Challenge and More

Sorry I have not posted anything for a few days, I have been so sick :(
Sneezeing left and right , it was horrible. Then on top of it I
had a pinched nerve in my neck
and couldnt do anything .
Well I am feeling a bit better lol . I did manage to make a few things.
Couldnt handle just laying around .

So this week over at SophistiCat Challenge , the challenge is a sketch set by Karen,
andon top of that ,NO STAMPS !!
I was like omg lol when I read that haha .
No stamps ..what was I going to do .
So I rumaged through my stash and remebered I had some
really pretty decoupaged images a
friend had given to me . And thought they would be pretty to use.

I took the lightest pink card and ran it thru my Bigshot machine useing a texture plate .
Thought the pinstripe effect would be pretty and
would add some demension and depth to it .

Items used:
White ,olive,darkpink and light pink cardstock
Ribbon and gems from stash
Decoupaged image from friend:)
Texture plate

Wanna say thanks for all the wonderful comments left . Am trying to get around to everyones blog.

This is a Birthday card and candle set I made for a friends birthday .

Love these stamps by TGF :) The card has a background scene that is a
digital stamp by Dustin Pike
It is one of his freebies. He does freebies every Wednesday I think .
So the card has the background scene and I tried to tie the candle into it
by having the pirate on land with a
treasure chest :)

Items used :
White,red and glitter black cardstock
Papers by DCWV
Gromlets from stash
Light blue glitter glue

Matey from TGF
I used Whisper Strokes markers as
watercolour on the image ,
and added some Sakura black
glaze to the boots ,
and white glaze to the hat .
I also did the hat 3-d so it would
be raised off the card .


This is an altered art project I made useing
"Janes Halloween Candy Container tutorial" over at
Midnight Madness
