Button it up with Lacy Sunshine

This week over at TTPHC 
the theme is button it up and this is my second post with my other DT card for


She was a lovely digi to play with.

Papers were from my stash and i distressed the  background paper with a baby wipe wiped over the edges to give a worn look.
I used a tattered lace die cut in the corner which i distressed lightly with Spun Sugar and coloured twine instead of ribbon.

With a few strategically placed buttons in  lovely pastel colours

I used the following Copic combinations for her:

Skin R02 cheeks E50,51,11
Hair YR 21,23,24,27
Trousers B 91,93,97
Jacket R 81,83,85
Straw bale YR 21,23,24,25
Grass G 00,01,03,05,07,09
Background B60 

I hope you like her and i am hopefully cross fingers getting back into the swing of my crafting again.....about time lol

Thanks for visiting xx

Button it up over at TTPHC this week

 Hi there over at TTPHC this week our challenge is button it up

So we had to make cards for two sponsors with some buttons on them so this post shows my first post which is  for 

Digistamps4Joy :: Your online Digistamp Store

and i used the Flower Power digi

I used papers from my paper stash and believe me it is a stash and i have a bundle that i don't have a clue where they came from so i dug that out for this challenge.

i used coloured twine instead of ribbon and after matting and layering added the digi or coloured up.  I used  a mixed colour flowersoft type medium for the coloured grass and flowers under the wheels aiming for looking like the van had parked on a bed of grass and flowers.  And last but by no means least the cardboard glazed buttons that i chose to go with this card.

I used Copics in the following colour combinations:

Main body B 01,02,04
Roof B 000,00,01
Windows T 0.01
Wheels T 9,7,6
Grill R 95,99

Not my greatest card as still finding my craft mojo after a month of and its proving harder to get back into the swing of things!

Thanks for looking!!

Your a darling

This week at TTPHC
we were sponsored by the lovely Scrappers Delights!

Scrappers Delights

This is my first time back since the passing of my niece and i had a little trouble finding my arty side so i just tried to do something so long as i did it.  I have to say i am glad to be back but its harder getting back into the swing of things than i first thought.  I think my creativity fled for the hills!

We had  a lovely song to chose ideas from and i chose the 
'D' your a darling lyrics for my card featuring the lovely digi Lady Jane

I distressed a white A5 blank with Tea dye and then matted and layered peach and gold card that had previously been distressed with Tea dye distress ink with a hint of dried marigold chucked in for a bit more depth.
I then added a square of thick cotton jute and a pale green doily.

I used two creative expressions waxes in bronze and green to highlight the vines and flowers and to finish the die cut flower in the two corners.
i put two gold half pearls into the middle of the two larger flowers and then finished the  card off with a die cut with Birthday Wishes sentiment that i had distressed in tea dye and dried marigold distress inks.

Here is a close up of the die cut flowers i added.  I hope you like my first card in a month?
