Deconstructed Sketch #35

Back again with an entry for this week's Deconstructed Sketch. I have wanted to join in with this challenge for ages so here goes with my first attempt. Here is the sketch:

and here is my intepretation:

I have used MFT's Pure Innocence Stamp - Being Cute Is What I Do for my image and I have coloured this with Copics and paper pieced her clothes using My Mind's Eye - A Happy Heart designer papers. This has been matted on black cardstock and layered on more Happy Heart papers with black matting. The sentiment is from another Pure Innocence set - Merry Wishes stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink and layered on some black ribbon.

On the inside I punched out my sentiment from Pure Innocence' My Basket of Eggs set stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink and layered this with some Happy Heart paper punched with  my scallop oval punch. A strip of coordinating paper finishes off the inside.

Back soon with more!

Colour Create #88 - Pink, Green & Neutral

Slowly getting back into the swing of things - starting work again tomorrow,  which I am really not looking forward to. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my job, but I have really enjoyed these summer holidays and am sad they are over.  Anyway, today its time for another Colour Create Challenge and #88's challenge is to use Pink, Green & Neutral with the optional extra of adding handmade flowers. Here is Suzie's lovely inspiration photo:

We are sponsored this week by Kenny K:

Here is my take on the colours:

For this card I used Stamper's Select White for my base and printed my Kenny K digi - Maddison Attitude onto another layer of white card. I also added my own computer generated sentiment using a new font I found - Digs My Hart from Kevin and Amanda  - love this font! I coloured the image with Copics and also paper pieced some of her using some pretty papers from Cosmo Cricket's DeLovely Collection. Along the bottom I added another strip of matching DeLovely paper and some white lace above the join. For my handmade flowers, I used some pink DMC thread to crochet three small flowers and then sewed them with matching button onto the paper strip.

On the inside I kept in simple by printing out another computer generated sentiment and adding a strip of DeLovely paper along the bottom.

You have a fortnight to enter the challenge, so make sure you check out the Colour Create blog with the rest of the lovely DT's creations.

Colour Create #87 - Red, Cream and Sage Green

Hi there!!
I'm back after a little blogging break - needed some time to recharge the batteries before getting back into the swing of creating again. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year.

It's Edna's turn to post this fortnight's Colour Create Challenge #87 - Red, Cream and Sage. What gorgeous colours!! Here is her inspiration pic for you:

5 January - Challenge 87 - Edna - cream, sage, red

This week's challenge is being sponsored by:

and the winner will receive a $5 voucher to spend in store.

For my card I decided to use Rustic Cream for my base and then some gorgeous paper from October Afternoon's Thrift Shop collection with Real Red cardstock added to the bottom section. I tied some twill ribbon around the join and then added a Pure Poppy flower button threaded with twine.
The sentiment is from Birthday Balloon Jolinne stamped in Rustic Cream ink and heat embossed with clear powder. It's a bit smudgy looking as I dropped the ink pad right on this section and did my best to clean it all away!
My image is from AnnaBelle stamps - Lil Molly's Flowers, coloured with Copics and paper pieced with more Thrift Shop paper and some sage cardstock. She was then cut out with my oval nesties and framed with my scallop oval nesties. Finally she was adhered to the card with foam dimensional tape.

My card was so late (I didn't check the date and though we had another week before the challenge started!) so the inside hasn't been done on this card yet.

I am entering this card into Ribbon Carousel Challenge's RCC34 - Anything Goes as well:
