Crafty Cardmakers #165

Hi everyone!  This fortnight Kim is hosting and the theme is Monochrome.  So that means you need to make you creation in mostly one colour. 

I have used this gorgeous La La Land Die to cut out the dress form and then embossed the card underneath to give it a pattern. I did the spritzing using a Melon Mambo marker in the old spritzing tool from SU.

Here is what I have used:

Card/Paper: SU Whisper White, Melon Mambo
Stamps: Live Fully was from my stash (think it may be Kaisercraft)
Ink: Melon Mambo
Embellishments: Pearls and Sequin from my stash
Tools: La La Land Dress Form Die, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Spritzer Tool

Don't forget to go and check out all the awesome creations here.

Thanks for popping by and hope you can join us.

Crafty Cardmakers #163

Hi there I am hosting this fortnight over at Crafty Cardmakers and the theme is Pearls or Gems.  I have gone with some flat pearl drops for my card.

 I have used these gorgeous gold foiled feathers from Funky Flair Studio.

These gorgeous pearl droplets have a beautiful shimmery shine to them.  Horrible to photograph but gorgeous in real life!

I hope you all get a chance to join in on this challenge and I look forward to seeing all of your wonderful creations!
