 Store  https://www.etsy.com/shop/ElvenstarArt

My card has been made using the fabulous image
Gothic Toxic Poison Victorian Boihazard and if
you would like to purchase then please click on
the link HERE to go straight to the image.

DETAILS

1.Started out with a 8 x 8 white card and matted it with
black card.

2. I took a piece of white card and created the background
   by using Spectrum Noir Aqua Tints from the landscape
    collection No's 08 on top, 03 middle and 61at the bottom.
This is the first time I have used my Aqua Tints and I
have had them since last year but not had the courage
to have a go but for this image I thought I must try,
to be honest I am very please with my little self and
 I even added salt to give a bit more texture to the card.

3. Once the paint was dry I then added the leaves
using a Stencil from Sheena Douglas called
Terrific Topiary. and used Walnut stain distress
ink by Tim Holt. I then stamped the sentiment
and skull along the bottom. Both stamps are
from the A Little Bit Sketchy collection by
Sheena Douglas and this set is called Just Torn.

4. The image was printed onto super smooth and
  coloured with Copic.  Once coloured I then
       stamped the Just Torn image on top and again
          coloured it with Copic .  I then cut around the image.
        Another Just Torn image was stamped and coloured
           up and  then cut  out including cutting out the centre
           to allow me the place this over the image to give the
  image more depth and rolled back the edges so as
to revel more of the image.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit and thanks for
calling and leaving me your comments.  I really
do appreciated you all.

Until Next Time

Duck the Halls

Good Morning

My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How are we all doing. well I hope ?!!

This is the first of two post from me today.


Welcome to challenge # 12 over at 
The theme for this months challenge is

ANIMAL KINGDOM (Must have an Animal)


You have until  the 31st August  to enter so lets see your
take on this theme.

If you would like to be a Guest Designer, then just enter
GD after your name when you link up.

DETAILS
1. Using a 7 x7 scalloped edged card I mounted it with
blue pearlescent card and backing paper that I printed
 printed off the cd Yuletide Wishes from Ooh La La.
The two corners on the right were rounded off.

2. Next I made a panel and embossed it with a Tattered
Lace Christmas embossing folder and adhered it
flat to the card.

3. The striped paper was part of an insert that again
matches the topper. I adhered this to the card
at an angle and the topper was then adhered to
that.  For that little extra I have added glitter
(sorry not showing up very well) to the
wreath around the ducks neck and also his
hat.  Touches of glitter also around the frame.
The larger duck has also been glittered up
the same as the topper.

To Complete I added the Happy Christmas sentiment.

So there you go, not only have I done my challenge
theme but its also my fist Christmas card.  Well
you have to start sometime LOL.

Thanks for calling and your comments.

of the topper).

2. Before adhering the black card  I secured a pice of
white satin ribbon across the centre.

I have done is to add a little glitter on the dress. Using
foam tape I secured it to the card at an angle.

4. The bow was made using the same white satin ribbon
and I have added two fern die cuts and a black gem.
( I cannot take credit for the ferns added to the bow, my
good friend Deb Artliff uses this technique and once
     I saw it I new I would have to have a go. So thanks for
 the inspiration Deb).

 To complete I have added the happy birthday sentiment
from my stash.

Good Morning,

My Crafty Friends, Visitors and Follower,

I hope you are all doing well? It's a busy day as
there are going to be three challenge posts  and
I am starting off with this one.

Today sees the start of challenge 77 over at

Emerald Faeries

The theme for this challenge is

Make It Sparkle


Our sponsors for this challenge are

Michelle R Designs

Using- Clarebelle Collection

~Prize €10 Gift Certificate

and

I Am Roses

Prize $30 Gift Voucher

The girls on the design team have created some
stunning  cards for your inspiration, so please
pop on over and take a peek.

The image I have used for this card is called The Larkins
by Emerald Faeries and if you would like to purchase  it,
then please click on the link HERE.

DETAILS

1. I took an 8 x 8 white card and matted it with silver mirri card.
Onto this I then added one of the papers from the collection.
Next I took another piece of mirri card and die cut it into
a rectangle and again with another paper from the collection
I matted this onto the mirri card and adhered to my card.

2. Using the Tattered Lace Notched rectangle dies I cut two
from mirri card and with another two papers cut the next
size down with the dies and then adhered them together.

3. Mirri card was again used to cut the small doily and the 
large circle also the rectangle.  Using three more of the
papers from the collection, I die cut the fancy doily,
circle and rectangle. I then adhered each one to its 
corresponding mirri die but at a slight angle to allow
the mirri card to show.

4. With the last paper in the pack I die cut the trellis and
adhered this across the top corner of my card.

5. The image was printed onto super smooth and coloured with
Copic, die cut with SB die Pearl Effects and again I have backed
it onto mirri card.  For added sparkle I have glittered all around
the edges of the image.

For the sparkle I used Lavender Stickles around  all the dies,
added lavender gems and a lavender star.  The flowers were
made using the scraps from the paper set and again the
Lavender Stickles was added to the centres. I also added 
a silver die cut flourish to the large circle.

So there you go, my take on our theme of Make It Sparkle.
Over to you now, cannot wait to see all your sparkle
designs.

Thanks for calling
Until Next Time
As Always
