Our Challenge this month over at Open-Minded Crafting Challenges is:



As always we have an amazing sponsor for this challenge! This Month it's Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and the prize is:
Prize: $10 Gift Certificate Toward Digital Products

I used Hummingbird. I printed my digi on watercolour paper and used brushos. I sprayed with water to make the pigments spread. Once dry I used watercolour pens to add extra colour to the flowers and sprayed once again. Then I outlined the hummingbird with a fine line of glitter before layering up my card with coordinating purple card and paper. I finished with some die cut flowers and three gems. The flowers are cut from hummingbird paper and purple card and finished with dazzlers.

I got this amazing Digi from Star Stampz! I found some beautiful paper in my stash with glittered butterflies and coloured Kimono to coordinate. Before layering the sentiment I embossed the backing shape with a cherry blossom tree. I then used my spellbinders die to add more cherry blossoms behind Kimono before adding her with 3D craft foam.




On the inside of my card I added a peacock cut from the same paper. This die is from Crafters Companion Kimono range.

Red, White & Blue birthday

The next fortnights challenge over at Simply Create Too is #110 Red, White & Blue. I found this box card template on the silhouette store and thought it would be great for a male card with a simple digi behind it. I found this digi in my stash and knew it was perfect. I mounted it with 3D craft foam to make it pop off the background paper before attaching the front of the box card.

I got this amazing Digi from Julia Spiri and I adore it! I decided that this beautiful image needed to be pride of place on a card. I fussy cut her after colouring her with pencils. I glued some patterned paper to a shaped card and cut it out so it matched the previous card shape. Next I embossed a scalloped shape with a Sheena embossing folder before mounting the sentiment onto with 3d craft foam. I added candi around the edge of the card and on the corners of the base.
