A Challenge or Two or a Card or Three

Happy Wednesday

Today I am featuring two new challenges out there in cyber land, firstly DS4J have a new challenge:

No excuse for not entering this challenge it's one of those all-time favourites .... 

Challenge #59 runs from 23 January - 5 February 2013

My card for this challenge is:

The image is called Bettie Bow and for £0.98 GBP she is a real bargain. The DP is a pre-embossed card from my stash and the dies are Spellbinders Classic Ovals & Lacey Ovals. The bow is made using Dynamics Beautiful Bows.

Please check out the wonderful inspiration from my fellow Design Team  HERE

Also today Creative Moments have a new challenge, it is:

Use Neutral Colors/Anything Goes

Our Sponsor this fortnight is
Floppy Latte

You can check out the rest of the DT's creations HERE, and boy is there some wonderful projects for you to see!

I have two cards using images by our sponsors for you:

The image is called Delayed Delivery, and i have coloured it with Copic markers, and used Pan Pastels for the grass and sky

The image is called Lighthouse and again is coloured with a mix of Copics and pan Pastels, the DP is a pale blue green card stock that I have altered with the weatherboard technique, this is very simple to do, all you need is to score lines on a score board (I used the Score Pal), and then use the direct to paper technique with an ink pad. The die cuts are Spellbinders Nautical Frames & Accents, Labels Eight & Decorative Labels Eight.

Thank you for stopping by
