Used a Bugaboo digi named "Rottweiler Trio" to make this cute card for the Bugaboo challenge "All Creatures Big and Small." Colored it in grey tones to enter into Double D's "When Skies are Grey" challenge. The patterned paper is actually upcycled from the inside of an envelope and the sentiment is a freebie from desertdiva-hannelie.blogspot.com

I don't do much watercoloring on my cards, preferring the more controlled feeling and look that markers provide. However, I created this card with a vintage Art Impressions stamp that I embossed in gold on the inside of a card so that it peeked out of the die cut scalloped window. A light wash of color on the basket, egg, and bow helped bring the little cutie to life. (I did use a grey Tombow marker to add the shadow, as I feared I wouldn't be able to get a thin line with a brush.) I added subtle stripes on the front of the card with a sponge, stencil, and light rose ink. Stamped the sentiment with a burgundy ink… but forgot how dye ink doesn't always give a good impression on glossy paper. Oh well… we'll call it a grunge font!

I wanted to make a special card for the current Simon Says "Girl Power" challenge, and I've always loved the Tinkerbelle movies. The poster for one of them inspired this card which was totally made by hand. I made the wings with vellum, added the veins with a white gel pen and then covered them with clear sparkly sticker paper. Ahhhh… magic!
