Vintage Gangster

I wanted this card to have a vintage feel so I paired some coordinating papers & a sentiment before distressing the edges with my Tim Holtz distress tool. The edges were inked with old paper distress ink. Finally I added this fab digi from Simply Betty Stamps.

Paper - Hunkydory & Far Far Hill
Sentiment - Craftwork cards
Image - Shoot em up Chris from Simply Betty Stamps coloured with ProMarkers

30th Hockey

A request for another Hockey card. This time for a 30th. I used Tagxedo to make the word cloud and this time also used it for the inside of the card.  I distressed the edges of the word cloud with Tim Holtz Faded Jeans.

Paper - My stash, free paper from Far Far Hill and personalised word cloud from Tagxedo

Simple Orchid

I adore this sprite digi from Aurora Wings and really enjoyed colouring it. I didn't want to distract too much from the digi so I went for a CAS card.

Using Spellbinders orchid die I created my 3d orchid adding detail with my ProMarkers & Worn Lipstick distress ink from Tim Holtz.

Foxy Mama

I LOVE this card and it was so simple to make! My mother in law loved it so much, its now framed in the hallway. She loves foxes so when I found this digi I knew I had to use it for her. I coloured it with ProMarkers and fussy cut it out. I mounted it on the backing paper using some 3d craft foam for dimension. Finally I added some gems to finish it off.

Paper -Craftwork Cards (I have 3 of this paper pad so really need to use it more!)
Embellishments -3mm gemstones from Hunkydory Crafts
