Decoupage flowers

Good day

I must confess this is not my most favourite time in blogland, since I do not celebrate Halloween, but I do love all the autumn colours.
I made a 3D card. This is my favourite technique and I used to make a lot of these projects and I still have a lot of Images. It is only a bit time consuming to cut all the pieces. Though I have to admit that this one did not take more time than a normal card to assemble. I used kraft cardstock for the base and kept it simple. Sentiment is a stamp from Purple Magnolia.

Challenges I took inspiration from:
Tuesday Morning Sketches #474
Aud Sentiment #214 - Halloween/ Fall
The Outlawz Tuesday Colour challenge - Yellow, Orange & Green
Tuesday Throwdown #413 - Anything Goes

Thank you and have a fantastic day!

Bluer than blue

Good day

I just love music cards, whether it is by theme or inspiration. This time my eye caught the challenge at Aurora Wings. So I Googled some songs and ended up with Bluer than Blue by Michael Johnson, and this Primrose Sprite just suited it so well. Then I had to see if you do get blue primroses and got this nice image too. The designer paper from Paper Touch just brought everything together. I used my Prisma colour pencils to colour the image and add the touch of lace with buttons to finish it off.

Challenges I took inspiration from:
Crafty Cardmakers #219 - Lace or ribbon
Aurora Wings #71 - Inspired by music
Incy Wincy 1-13 Oct - Blue and button
Creative Knockouts #266 - Lots of layers
The Outlawz Wednesday Sketch Challenge
Colour Crazy Craft #40 - Anything goes

Thank you and have a fantastic day. Hopefully not so blue.

Guinea fowls

Good day

With school holidays on hand I escaped a bit and did some crafting. Playing with a few of my favourite challenges. This was probably my very first stamp and it has been ages since I have last used any stamp. It came to mind, though I had to search for it. The designer paper is from L'aquarelle Designs from Ultimate Crafts. I used some spellbinder dies with a feather as the twist.

Challenges I'm joining:

Use your stuff #332 - Forest Frolic
