As I was running out of time, I used some of at Hunky Dory kit which I've had for a couple of years, I very rarely used preprinted toppers, much prefer to make my own, but they're brilliant to have for a back up......

Here's my DT card.


I used one of the Christmas Create a Card dies by Crafters Companion for this one.  Once I had cut and embossed the die, I left the die in place and use Distress Ink to stencil through it and around it, then added some glitter and gems.  The sentiment is a stamp from Crafty Individuals.

IPLM's #233

The new challenge has just started over on I ♥ ProMarkers where the theme is 'Make your own background papers'.  We have 2 sponsors for this one, Marianne Design  who's price is a surprise and Squigglefly who's prize is a choice of 3 digi images.

Here's my DT card.


The image is from Squigglefly.  I made the background, by stamping butterfly with Versamark, and heating embossing them with clear embossing powder.  I then used Distress Inks to colour the card.  The embossing resists the ink, making it stand out more.


The usual close up.

ILPM's #230

For this weeks challenge over on I ♥ ProMarkers the theme is 'Ribbons'.  We have two sponsors for this one, Marianne Design who's prize is either 2 dies, 2 stamps or 1 die and 1 stamp. The other sponsor is Crafty Ribbons who's prize is a £10 voucher to spend in their online store.

Here's my DT card.


This rose is a stamp from Visible Image, which I coloured for last weeks challenge, but I've had terrible sciatica and was unable to sit long enough to finish it.  So I thought why waste it, I can use it for the next challenge, I just had to mat and layer it and make it into a card. 
For the background I stamped randomly with a stamp called 'Field of Sky', but I have no idea who the maker is, I then distressed a little with Dried Marigold Distress ink, and added the ribbon and pearls.
