Catching up 2 challenges - one post !

I'm on catch up tonight as I've been away on a course for the past 2 days, it's amazing how such a short space of time can cause chaos !

So first of all, it's time for the I ♥ ProMarkers challenge which this week is a sketch and is being sponsored by Pollycraft. The prize is a lovely set of digi images which have only just been released !

I used a Lilybean image from Pollycraft called Clover - I believe. I shaded the image with ProMarkers and then stamped down one side with a Katzelkraft stamp, the butterfly is also from the same set. I used a white Inkssentials pen to add some detail to the butterfly. I cut the image out using Labels 8 Nestabilities and blended some Crushed Olive Distress Ink around the edge. The papers are Stampin' Up and I've distressed them around edges.

The word is from a Rubbadubbado stamp set and is cut out with a Fancy Tag. I've done 2 cross stitches top and bottom with tapestry thread.

This card is for my GDT spot over on Fab'n'Funky challenge blog. The challenge this week is called Metal Mania and is sponsored by Di's Digi Downloads. You can use whatever metal item you like eg. a charm, paper clip or even coloured with metallic paint !

I'm also entering this card for the Allsorts challenge which is a sketch. The main image is a Crafty Individuals stamp (which is one of my favourites!) and I've blended Weathered Wood and Faded Jeans Distress Inks around the edge. The paper is Stampin' Up as is the blue card.

The metal frame is from my stash and the stamped words are a Stampin' Up set that I ordered in French. The edge punch is a Martha Stewart. I've added a little faux stitching for added interest and the pearls have been coloured with my Duck Egg ProMarker. that's done I'd better take a look at my emails !

Thanks for looking
