Little Witch

Hello Thanks for coming and having a look at my latest creation. I have used an easel card design and the edge of the background has been distressed with Tim Holtz Dried Marigold and Black Soot.

This is an image from Just Inklined and I think she is really cute, and being as Halloween is just around the corner I thought I would use her for this card. I have coloured her with Tria Pens. Then the image has been layered on to a spiders web patterned paper from Basic Grey Eerie paper pad and orange card.
The tree and the letters are a Sizzix die. The orange moon is vellum embossed with a web and some pumpkin buttons in the corner.

The inside is covered in a patterned paper from Diane's Daughters . The bat stamp is from Chocolate Baroque. There are also two silver fancy leaf brads on the easel stop inside the card

Distressed Christmas

Hello again and welcome to this weeks
Unfortunately this will be the last challenge from The Secret Crafter, it will be sad to see it go but things are changing and it is time to bring it to an end.

The theme this week is

Our final sponsor is Heather's Hobbie Haven with a $15 voucher

For my card this week I have done Christmas, I thought it was about time to start. I have used a deckle edge card for the base and this has been covered with a patterned paper leaving a tiny border. I have then put a rectangle of a matching patterned paper layered on red deckle edge card on the top, this was cut with a spellbinder die. A merry Christmas greeting has been stamped on the top left. All these layers have been lightly distressed.

I have stamped the image and coloured it with Promarkers and glitter has been put on the coat and hat edges. This has also been layered on to red card. A piece of green ribbon is across this center of the card. To the left of the image I have put a single silk flower with punched leaves and just a few gems to add a bit of sparkle to it.

Hi it's time for this weeks

And this weeks theme chosen by the lovely Kate is
Animal Antics

Our sponsor this week is Crafter's Companion

With a prize of a £10 voucher

For my card this week I have chosen a lovely bright summer colour, not that we have had much sun this year, I thought it would be cheerful. The image of Daisy the cow, that's my name for her cause all cows are called Daisy aren't they? has been simply coloured with part Tria's and part other pens ( including a little glitter). She has been cut out with a die, all the layers are a Yellow distress card. 

There are two white layers that have been embossed using different embossing folders, bubbles and daisy's, and a last layer of a nice yellow patterned paper covering a 6x6 card.

I have added a orange ribbon and bow to the bottom of the card. The 2 orange corner's are a Cheery Lynn Die and the Daisies are from Hot of the Press. A stamped sentiment completes this card.
