Partytime at Pollycarft

Paula at Pollycraft had decided to shut up shop to concentrate on her family and soon to be new arrival.  To celebrate all her fabulous images she is throwing a little farewell sharing party, where you can link up your favourite Pollycraft creations.

She also has a fantastic offer on her digis so hop over to have a look, you won't be sorry.  After I've done this post I'm off over to use my OH's paypal and get me some of these gorgeous images before they go.

Here is one of my favourite man cards with Maurice as the centre piece.

Crafting When We Can Challenges #19 - Fashion and Pearls

Once again life caught up with me along with the nasty no get up and go bug so I didn't get my second card done for the last challenge.  I still have the idea in my head so it may appear one day.

Now onto Challenge 19, Fashion and Pearls.  Our fab Sponsor for this Challenge is

We were given some wonderful images to use and I chose this one because I could see in my mind something I would like to try.  The backing paper is K & Company Best of 12x12 360 designer Papers.  I really like all these papers and they pop up on my cards alot.  The white circle has been embossed with a Sizzix Texturz plate.  I've had these plates for about 3 years and never used them, I always forget but I cut the circle by hand and thought embossing would hid the rubbish edges.  The image was coloured with Promarkers and the pearls were made with a Viva pearl pen (and I didn't put my fingers in it before it set, yeah me!).  Flowers are old Woodware ones and the ribbon was from Craft Den.  I used a MS border punch to make the lace on the edge of my card and highlighted it with a little Promarker, the senitment is from Craftwork Cards.

Hop over now to the Challenge blog and show us your Fashion and Pearls creations.  While your there leave us some love.

Crafting When We Can Challenges #18 - Steampunk

Hi all, this fortnight over at Crafting When We Can Challenges we have a theme of STEAMPUNK and our awesome sponsor is Sassy Studio Designs.

We were given a couple of images to use so I have decided to use one now and one later in the week when I can get to my Craftrobo to cut out a card.

The image for the card below is called Steampunk Josephine (Nov 11, 2012).  I designed the card on CraftArtist using background images and embellishments from Dezinaworld adding drop shadows for dimension and then colouring in Josephine with Copics and Promarkers.

Short and hopefully sweet post today as I'm off to battle with some more clothes alterations for High Green Musical Theatre Group's up and coming musical review.

Hop over to CWWCC and show us your interpretation of Steampunk.  I can't wait to see it.
