Deco Pages For Nicki

These are the two pages that I made for Nicki in the swap on KCUK, her theme is the alphabet. The backing paper I used for the eyes page is from the Once Upon A Time range by DCWV. I coloured the edges with distress ink and stamped letters of the alphabet over it. The eye chart and eye stamps are by Stampers Anonymous and the sentiment is by Paper Artsy. I stamped the images on to white card and coloured them with distress ink. The last thing I did was to add some alphabet brads.
Again the background for the blossom page is coloured with distress ink and I stamped letters of the alphabet over it. The stamped images are by Elusive Images and were stamped on to white card and coloured with distress inks. I stuck gems on to the end of each petal and on a couple of corners of the page and added some alphabet brads.

Fantasy Tags

I belong to a tag swap group on Facebook and the theme for the latest swap is fantasy, these are the tags I made.
I bought a Faerie Poppet die cut decoupage kit a few years ago and decided to use it for the swap. The background papers are from the kit and I also added some pink wrapping paper that's covered with lovely silver embossed butterflies. I painted parts of the tags with emulsion paint and stamped swirls around the edges, then I stippled clear embossing ink around the edges and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer UTEE. The decoupaged fairies went on next, I love these fairies they're so cute, lastly I added some sari ribbon to the tags.

The Juggler

I was pleased with the way this card turned out. I wasn't sure if the beads on the wire would work and hope that the ends of the wire stays stuck in between the card.
The stamps are by Character Construction and I coloured the images with Promarkers. I wanted the beads to move from hand to hand so I threaded them on to some wire and stuck the ends of the wire to the arms. The background paper is a Graphicus Guild paper. I embellished the card with black pom poms, some flowers and gems.

Easter Card

I used a Martha Stewart punch to edge a piece of green card and attached the stamped image to it. The stamp I used is by Flower Soft and I coloured the image with Promarkers.

Bonjour Madame

I love the Mannequin Cafe stamps by Character Construction, this is my first attempt with them. The Eiffel Tower and Arc De Triomphe are by Invoke Arts, the rest of the images are by Character Construction.

This is an ATC I made for a KCUK Grunge swap. I coloured the background with distress inks and painted some broken china Distress Crackle Paint in one corner. The swirly background stamp is by Creative Expressions and the chequered background stamp is a Stamp Bug SSP Guild stamp. The main stamp image and sentiment are by Stampotique. I edged the ATC with some arctic black Cosmic Shimmer UTEE.

Blue Challenge

These are two cards I made for a blue challenge. The image is by Darkroom Door and the colour is shades of blue by Marvy Blending Blox. For the butterflies I used a Martha Stewart punch and stamps. I spread Distress Stickles over the image and butterflies on the top card unfortunatly the photo doesn't show how glittery it is.
