C4C441, eclipse technique!

Happy Saturday! Challenge time over at the CRAZIES. this time we are asked to do the Eclipse Technique. Lots of ideas on Pinterest.
You stamp  you image, then die cut a word or any other die over the stamped images and pop up what you have cut out.
I have to say, my card looks better IRL, maybe I should have inked the edges of the letters for the picture, but I did not lol.
Stamps are from Altenew, the word HELLO is cut with my cameo. I really wanted to do a big word but I have no big letter dies.....tempted to buy a set but I did not. I put my paper on my mat of the cameo. typed the word, put a box around it the size of your card or whatever size you like and cut, leave the letters in, stamp and then pop up the letters.
It worked just fine! Proud of myself for not buying more supplies, lol!

Sperwer card from Dora's Digi's!

Good morning! Today I am sharing my card with the digital sperwer stamp from DORA.
I am lucky to be on her design team, this is one of the new images this month.
The sperwer is coloured with Faber Castell's polychromos, the background is a 3D leaves embossing folder from Stampin Up, with a foam blender I put on some peeled paint ink from Tim Holtz.
The leaves are from a punch, sentiment from Hero Arts, Nuvo drops dark walnut, and the frame is from the Silhouette. All put together on a dark brown card base. Of course I had to add some wink of stella on the bird, but that is hard to see in the picture. The image was cut out after I was done colouring.

C4C440, ombre look

Happy Saturday! The challenge this week over at the CRAZIES, is to use the ombre look.
I choose some shades of pink and a red. After I blended my background, I spritzed it with water with some pearlex in it, this gave it not only a shimmer but also the water drops. Flower is heat embossed in white, Magenta flower, die cut for the word and the dragonflies are from a punch. I punched them from a sheet of acetate and coloured them alcohol ink.  Hope you like it!

Dora's digi card...

Somehow I am not good at posting cards at the right time...this card is a digi stamp from Dora, I am happy to be in her design team. You can find the post HERE

I used polychromos to colour this image and the sentiment is from SU, butterfly from Martha Stewart.
The background is a 3d embossing folder from SU, called leaves.
Of course I added some bling by using stickles on the butterfly and wink of stella on the flower.
