Three for Tuesday

Three rather different cards from me tonight. The first card is a seaside one featuring Grace, a digi image,from Freshly Brewed, an image I won a few weeks ago. I sued an assortment of papers for this one and some K&Co chipboard embellies along with some pearls. I saw an article in a crafting mag about grounding your image so I thought I would try it by using Saffron Promarker at her feet for sand and I think it has worked really well.

This little fella from LOTV looks in a bit of a hurry, zipping along with his dog. I used Bev's lovely sketch at Lili of the Valley Papers are MME Wild Asparagus and K&Co Hopscotch. I added some sticky ribbon from an old Dovecraft male pack but had to miss off the bow, didn't think it went with the image. Sticky corners from an old Lakeland pack and squares and a star button to finish.

I decided to make a card with no stamping for a change. Yesterday I cut out a couple of butterflies using my friend Lynsey's Marianne die. The circle was cut with a Nellie die and the border was cut with an MS punch. I made the flower using retro punches and a brad and added some sparkly flowers.

Brilliant work for a Tuesday lol. Love the c4e one marianne, really captured the holiday spirit. The little boy one is great, love all the shapes with him and the non stamping one, very daring but it has come up beautiful. The butterfly is beautiful. Thanks for sharing at C4E this week. Hugs
