90 Minute Scramble

The Hero Arts 90 minute scramble scramble challenge last night was to use a die cut and flowers.  I combined the two by die cutting Tim Holtz Tattered Florals. Kate Walsh showed us how to make these flowers in Athlone last December.  I made them from Echo Park Victoria Garden papers and distressed the edges.  The Hero Arts Dictionary Greetings stamp is white embossed then finger painted with Barn Door and Scattered Straw.  The HA Envelope background is also stamped and distressed with Scattered Straw.  Computer generated sentiment.

This morning after all the rush I mounted the finished piece onto some pink card.

Birthday Gretel

Hi all, hope you're having a nice relaxing Sunday!
Have a new stamp to play with!  She's Birthday Gretel from CC Designs and I coloured her with Promarkers.  The papers are Echo Park Country Drive and I punched a couple of flowers and leaves from the same papers and added a gem.

Pink Birthday

Hi all, it's cold here but at least the sun is out! I wanted to use my new Papermania Capsule Collection papers and the stamps I got last week from Ladybug Crafts Ink. Lovely to colour - I used watercolour pencils.  The sentiment is also Ladybug Crafts and I made a label for it by biting out the corners of a rectangle with my 1" circle punch.  I used a leaf punch and Sizzix 3-D flower die for the flowers, and some Doodlebug ribbon.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
