Digital Butterflies

I haven't had much time to update my blog with school holidays still ongoing, but here is a little sneaky update.

The latest kits from Serif CraftArtist were launched on Create and Craft last week - created by Siobhan Harrison the lady behind April Rose Illustration. Some of you may be familiar with her beautiful designs and, as part of the design team, we were lucky to see them first.

There are 6 kits in total and here are some of the samples I created :

This one is my favourite sample. I printed out a range of butterflies before decoupaging them onto the card. This would make lovely framed art too!

Kit -Cornucopia

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Fan-Tastic Tuesday - Anything Goes - with a butterfly
Crafting From The Heart - Anything Goes

Kit -  Maison de Mode

 Kit - Summer Meadow

Kit - Rose Garden

Kit - Foxglove Dell

That time of Year

So its that time of year again when students all over the land wait patiently (or impatiently!) for exam results. I remember the time well, even though it is some years ago.

I had to make this card as soon as I saw the digi stamp on DigiStampBoutique. I hope he will go to a good home soon!

I used Kraft Card as a base to layer the patterned paper onto. The image was coloured with Promarkers and decoupaged. Finally I cut three banners from coloured paper to decorate.

If you are waiting for exam results I hope you get everything you wish for!!

Challenges I am entering:

Doodle Pantry - Anything Goes (Digital)

August Already

August already! Where do the months go? I have been playing with the stamps from the latest issue of Creative Stamping Magazine.

 They are very summery and sultery. I chose to stamp the butterfly and flowers onto black card with white embossing powder. I added colour using mica paints to give them a metallic sheen. The sentiment is part of s set from Quick Cards magazine.

Surprising what you can do with a few freebies!!
