Purple Iris

I have just joined StampTV and there was a sketch challenge starting today, this also fits the bill for the challenge at Tag You're it, using swirls and circles. I coloured my Iris with whisper pens, bringing one petal over the green layer and onto the white card. Used QuicKutz flourish for the swirls and finished off with green ribbon and 3 circle flat pearls. The sentiment was computer generated using Park Avenue BT font.

Purple Get Well

Penny Black Challenge again, this time a Get well card, I used Penny Black stamp called 'Bright Wing' stamped it 4 times and embossed it, coloured it with purple whispers. the 'Get Well' message was computer generated using purple and then embossed with clear embossing powder. The backing paper was a good quality wrapping paper, and finished off with ribbon.

For the insert, I used a border from Microsoft publisher and finished it off with a purple butterfly stamp in the corner.

3D Challenge

Stamp Somethings challenge this week is to create a 3D something... so I have used one of my Penny Black stamps coloured with whisker pens and a few dots of Stickles gold, the butterfly is a peel off stuck onto vellum, coloured to match the card, cut out and then creased so that the wings come forward, and then the body stick to the card to give the 3D effect, cant say I am that please with the butterfly I think the black makes it look a bit heavy! The sentiment is computer generated.

Thank you for looking. Jose

Circle card

I have been really lazy this year, just cant get into cardmaking, and when I saw the Penny Black challenge I though OH NO! I have never made a circle card, but thought I ought to make an effort so here it is... I used an image kindly given to me by Jo she makes some gorgeous cards, Im struggling a bit using H2O's but they say practise makes perfect, well I can tell you I have a long way to go. Used my swiss dot cuttlebug folder for the backing card, and finished it off with a bow.
