Something a little different

The last of my cards for Beccy'sPlace, also a wee bit late.....oops. This one is called Stanley Clown and I decided to make a "box card". There are numerous tutorials on the web and YouTube for this design, it is a lot easier than it looks.

I'm Back !!!!

Had a lovely vacation in England and Scotland, well it was more like a route march lol. So many family and friends to see and not enough time. I have missed my crafting but did manage a visit to a few craft stores ssshhhh, don't tell hubby.
I did try to schedule some posts but that didn't happen so here are 2 cards I should have shown last week. This image is from Beccy'sPlace, called Spunky with flowers. The first card I made was just the flowers printed onto parchment and perforated out to form a 3D bunch. I coloured with pencils and lightly embossed the petals. The border was done on a PCA grid and the centre oval on a Pergamano Multi Grid #20. I dotted some pearls around the borders and also in the centres of the flowers.
 The second card I made included Spunky and was very different to the first. A lot brighter and I coloured the image on my computer in  my Paint Shop Pro programme and just touched up some areas with my pencils. I used Spellbinders Dies and an Anna Griffin embossing folder, so there you have 2 cards from me this week.

Start of the summer travels

My next card for Beccy'sPlace is from her Road Trip set. As it happens I will be on a trip when this airs. I have used the coloured version of Beccy's caravan for this card. I do like that her images come in colour as well as uncoloured ones. I fussy cut the caravan and used mounting foam to gift it a bit of a lift. The papers are from my stash and the card fold is one I found in a magazine. The tag sentiment is also included in this set.
as always I appreciate your visit.

Under the Sea

Picked up a lovely freebie from Spellbinding Stamps on Facebook. She is just perfect for parchment work. I have coloured only her skin from the back, using Polychromas pencils and embossed her hair, the swirls and shells then stippled her tail and top. Added some stickles and cut a border. I used my Shell Impressabilities to dry emboss the shells in the corners, mmmm another use for those lol. The backing paper behind the parchment is a parchment pastel rainbow sheet. This for me is the most difficult part trying to get the right backing paper so that the skin looks good because of the translucency of the parchment.
