The Paper Players & Crafty Cardmakers

Good evening, or morning where ever you may be.

Tonight I am entering this card into two challenges.

The Paper Players - they would like you to use trees or leaves (the leaves are on my flowers)
Crafty Cardmakers - Marie has chosen the theme which is to use Winged Things.

Check out what the Design Teams came up with - Bee-you-ti-ful!!!

My stamp is called Ladybug Nora who is a Swiss Pixie from C.C Designs. Can you see her cute little wings? I have also used the Stone Wall from this collection. I have stamped Nora first then used a mask and my Stamp-a-ma-jig to place and stamp the wall. The butterflies add a nice little winged touch :)

I have stamped onto Watercolour paper and have used my Stampin' Write Markers and a blender pen. I scribble the markers onto a plate and then pick up the colour with the blender pen. Because I am impatient, I have used my heat gun between layers of colour.

The colours I have used are : Melon Mambo, Crumb Cake, Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point, Blush Blossom and Real Red.
I have also sponged the background with Bashful Blue but it doesn't really show in this photo.

I have added stickles to the ladybug and Nora's wings (Gunmetal & Diamond)

Thanks so much for looking xx

The image is so pretty and the whole design is perfect. Thank you so much for joining us again at CCM and congratulations at making top five last time well deserved


  5. She's certainly a sweetie and I like the grosgrain ribbon. It adds a lovely texture.
