I have layered my papers and at the end of them where
I used the border punch I rolled them up
so they would lift off the page .

I also paper pieced some of Anya's clothes.
I stamped my image onto some Christmas Dovecraft
paper and cut out the pieces I wanted to use and
glued them to the image.

I was sat looking for some snowflake diecuts that
I have ....but couldnt find them anyplace haha .
So a friend of mine
punched some for me :)
I added a gem to the center of them for more detail.

Items used:

Stampin for the Weekend and GDT Call

I was sat colouring images last night ,
messing around with the promarkers I have.
And today I was blog
hopping and seen a challenge over at Stampin' for the Weekend.
The theme this week is Orange , Brown and Green.
Well most of the images I have been colouring
fit perfectly with that colour scheme.
Very autumny colours :)

So I made this card for the challenge.

I used the sketch from FFF challenge.
I thought it was very pretty
and fairly easy to do .

Be Thankful
Can you spot the difference lol ...knew there was something I forgot to do haha .

Items used :
White, green and orange cardstock
Papers by DCWV and K&Co
Ribbon, flowers, twine and button from stash

I have a had a few comments on my colouring :) Thank you all very much.
I have not had my promarkers for very long , not even a week tbh.
There are some really great tutorials and
videos out that show you how to use these markers.

And seeing as Copics and Promarkers are alcohol
based markers, you can watch tutorials and
videos for either to learn tips and stuff :)

Hope this has helped :)

Roses on Paper Challenge 22

The 1st card is for the Challenge and the 2nd card is
what I was going to submit but used the
wrong stamp lol . I still posted the card anways :)

I have entered this card into 3 challenges this week.

The challenge this week at Roses on Paper is to pick
a sketch, your choice , and a colour scheme.
The colours are Green,
Orange, and Brown.

I had made a card for this challenge yesterday and
was going to post it..but I had used the
wrong stamp lol .
Sooo I had to make another card .
I am not used to useing browns, oranges or greens
in cards other than for some
grass or trees haha .
So I had a lot of fun making these cards.

I am also entering this card into the
Anyone for Anya challenge . The theme this week
is to pick a TGF image that best represents your personality.
Well since it is getting cold outside and I have broke
out my sweaters and scarves, I thought
this image would be cute.

So the sketch I chose for my card is from
Belles 'N Whistles Blog. I liked
the idea of the
leaves on the card, and thought I would try it.
Plus the layout is really pretty . So am also
entering it into
the BnW challenge.
