"Only Blue" #2

.......Well I did say that my favourite colour to use is blue!!!!.. so I have done another card for the second week of the STAMPOTIQUE only blue challenge. Isn't this Stampotique mermaid adorable!!!... her name is Smumanha.
 I did the background with the Memory Box "rings and puddles" stencil, then smudged it a little with some watery white paint, I love the effect and thought it fitting for a watery scene.

Feathers Appear When Angels Are Near

I made this card for my lovely friend who wrote a song in remembrance of her son Roman who died while he was quite small. The song was very poignant, heartfelt, and just a real tearjerker. One of the lines in the song has lyrics similar to these, so when I heard it, I was inspired to make a card for Amanda to let her know how beautiful her song is.

The stamps I have used are the VISIBLE IMAGE 
"Angels are near" stamp set.
I am also entering this card in the THAT'S CRAFTY  "fly Away" challenge,
and THE ARTISTIC STAMPER  "take a little colour" challenge

Only Blue

This weeks theme for the challenge over at STAMPOTIQUE ....(of which I won with the last Blue and Green challenge) was an easy one for me, the title is "Only Blue"...meaning use only blue on your work, .....well my favourite colour to use is blue....they say it is a sign of insecurity!!!...but who says that!!! lol. anyways, I love all shades of blue, especially the teals and turquoise's....oooohhh yummy. I have used Stampotiques cheeky little chappy, Buru, and also Daniel's hearts for the background.
Also over at THE ARTISTIC STAMPER, on their facebook site, the challenge is to "take a little colour", so I am taking my chances there too.

Vintage and Metal

I think that I am hoping that if I do Christmas cards for challenges, then by December I will have made enough to give out!!!... I hate thinking of a theme for my Christmas cards, I love the process of making them, and once I have decided, I usually do them all the same, but this year I think they will be a miss match of all the ones I have already done.
Soooo... with that in mind, I have decided to make another Christmas card while entering the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge and the topic is "Vintage" and also the Country View Crafts Challenge where the subject is "Metal".
I tried to make the frame metallic by painting the frame black, then adding gilding wax to it.
So, thats another Christmas card done, and in my favourite kinda style at the moment, recycled corrugated packaging. dont ya just love it when some of the supplies are for free!!!.
