Rainbow Lady's Challenge 146 At the movies

Fingers crossed and here goes!! This is my DT card for Rainbow Lady's challenge this week, which is "a night at the movies". We are sponsored by Time to Sow this week and have yet again some great blog candy up for grabs, so please pop over and check it out.
My card is based on The fabulas Baker boys!!!!!! Sorry Northern sense of humour creeping in again LOL.
The stamp is one of LOTV and coloured in with promarkers, I added a splash of glitter to the icing sugar to make it sparkle. The frame is cut out with a Marianne die, and the bp is a piece of left over wrapping paper,  the doily has been made using a Marianne designable cut and emboss die, along with a Martha Stewart punch. Wish I could get our little mice baking LOL Elizabeth xxx

Magnolia Test Run

Okay though I'd have a little test run after last weeks failed attempt LOL. After a fab weekend spent mooching around the NEC looking at gorgeous things, and all day Saturday on our stall at the honey fair in Conwy, I decided that I'd earn't a rest. (excuse to play with new toys!!!). The Magnolia stamp is one of the new "Butterfly" colletion which are sooo  cute!! She has been stamped out in memento ink, and coloured in using promarkers, cut out with a nestie and mounted on to a 6x6 card with HOTP backing papers as the base.
 The flower and swirl are from a Marianne die set and cut out from scraps. Great to catch up with so many of you at the NEC, looking forward to seeing you soon!!! Elizabeth xxx

Rainbow Lady's Challenge 144 St Patrick's Day

Happy St Patricks Day!!!! This week we are sponsored by Crafty notions over at Rainbow Lady's Challenge blog, and we have some great goodies up for grabs!!!!!
I have no idea where the BP came from that I've used, but the checked paper is HOTP. The images are both digi's from Chi Chi Memories and coloured in with promarkers. I used a Sharpie fineliner pen to add the stitches. Elizabeth x

Play Date Cafe Challenge 72

Have been having a play with one of my new templates from Crafters Workshop.  The background was created by brayering a mixture of tuscan satin, pink lace and blue brocade silkies from Imagination Crafts.  I chose two of the four birdcages from the template, and then used a versamark inkpad through it. I then embossed it with silver bells wow powder, and added some blue gems. The flourishes in the corner's are Tim Holtz and embossed in the same powder. I love the way that the three colours of the silkies have merged to create a rainbow. Hope you can see the sparkle, Elizabeth x

Rainbow Lady's Challenge 143 Best Friend

This week we are being sponsored by Chi Chi Memories over at Rainbow Lady's Challenge blog, they have some fab digi images so please join in.
I couldn't resist these elephant's with the little floating hearts, think this image will get used a lot!! I printed the elephant's out on to text and graphic paper and then cut it out with a die. Added the bunting (part of a Molly Blooms set free with Simply Homemade) and used promarkers to colour the whole lot in. The text and graphic paper holds the ink, and stops and it from bleeding outside of the lines. This was then matted on to a piece of Anna Griffin spotty cardstock before putting it onto a scallop edge card. The greeting is one of Craftwork Cards with the colour changed to match, again with a promarker.

Rainbow Lady's Challenge 142 Masked Ball

Here's my DT card for Rainbow Lady's challenge this week, which is Masked Ball. I thought I'd try something different this week. I picked up the basic mask in the after Christmas sale at Asda for .75p! It has a gold coloured plastic handle and a fabric eyemask covered in black lace, a great base to start with! I added a mixture of flowers from my stash, along with all the ivy leaves that fell off my Christmas garland LOL. I added gems above the eyeholes to give it some sparkle, then wrapped ribbon around the flowers and handle finishing off with a bow at the base. Learnt all I know from the great Biddy Baxter LOL. Think all that's missing is some pink fizzy stuff for the glass, hope you enjoy and come over to join in the challenge. Elizabeth xxx
