A new Challenge over at Songbird and Besties.

Good Morning Friends.
This is going to be a long post today so a would grab a brew as I have two cards to show you. The first card is for the Challenge over at Songbirds and the second for the Besties Challenge.

The Challenge at Songbird is sponsored by SK Digis and the theme is Bloom and Grow so we just need to see flowers on your project.

I have used Dandelion Hearts.

The image has been coloured with Copics and the papers are Romance and Roses from Nitwit Collections.

The ribbon is from my own stash and has been coloured using the Copic pen I coloured the image with.

The butterflies are  Memory Box dies Darla and Vivienne. The sentiment came with the digi download.

And now for my Second Card which is a Bestie and they have a new challenge starting today. So Bestie lovers pop on over as the winners will receive Bestie images of their choice. You can find the challenge here. You can also buy the images at The Scrapbook Stamp Society. The Besties are introducing there new teamies by having a Blog Hop so please pop on over and join in the hop. Gorgeous Besties up for grabs.

The image has not got a name at the moment but it can be found here

She is so cute.
The dress has been coloured using a Polycromo pencil. The rest has been coloured using a combination of Flexi Markers and Copics.
The papers are Potting Shed from Nitwit Collections.

The roses are from WOC and the white flower sprays are from Live and Love Crafts.

The butterfly is a combination of Darla and Vivienne by Memory box and is available here.
I have used Frantage around the image - love this stuff.

She has had Diamond Sparkles added to her wings and dress.

kenli said...

Gorgeous card. Love every detail. Thanks for joining us at Card Mania.

Sharon said...

Sorry I have only just replied. Frantage is embossing powder which has little bits of glass, mica, glitter added to make it chunkier. You have to heat it underneath so as not to blow the bit off your card.
Hope this helps Helen.
Hugs Sharon. x
