One Stop Craft Challenge #87

Morning all today we have a new challenge for you at 
The Theme is Distressing, the sponsor is Dew Drops Craftz.

I am also entering my DT card into the following challenges 
Here is my card
I have used an image from Dew Drop called Tokyo Girl and coloured her with Copics.  I have done so much distressing on this card I don't know where to start lol.
Well I have used chalks to distress around the image, I have used my distressing tool to distress the edges of the papers and flowers, the base paper is DCWV which I have sanded, the two big flowers I cut out with different sized circle punches using the same bp screwed them all up rubbed chalks into them the added some diamond stickles.  Instead of adding a flower or gem to the centre I used buttons and threaded some cotton through.
The little flowers I punched out with a small retro daisy punch rubbed some chalk into them added some stickles and gems the top one I added some free flowing cotton thread.
I used the same thread criss crossed over the bp for a notice board effect.
The papers are Basic Grey the sentiment is from a RAK.
Here are some close up pictures for you to see.
I think this card will be perfect for a teenager
I hope you like it and please pop over and see the other DT creations they are stunning 
I do hope you will join us this week at One Stop Craft Challenge.
Big hugs see you later.

Crafty Ann's Challenge DT Card

Morning all hope you are all well.
Today sees a new challenge at Crafty Ann's the theme is
Shaped Easel Cards
The DT have come up with some stunning creations if you would like to get some inspiration then please check them out.

Here is my DT card
I was fortunate to win some H&S stamped images (thank you Deb) and I have used one on my card, I coloured her with promarkers and sat her on one of Crafty Ann's cup cake images, the bp is also from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop and is the reason I have kept my card quite simple and unadorned I just needed you to see this gorgeous new bp it is even better in real life.
I have used SU Suede card for my base and an Octagon shape, I used a doily to mount the cake and image on I distressed the doily in a soft brown chalk.  I added some card candy and a MS punch strip and placed pearls along to highlight.
I wanted to take different photos to show a closer look at both image and papers
I hope you like my card and please come join us at Crafty Ann's

Whoopsie Daisy #3 DT Card

Hi all this is my third post today and is for this months Whoopsie Daisy Challenge our theme is
Hot Colours.
This is my DT card and I have used a beautiful image from sheet No: 68 available HERE
I have used an 8x8 white base card and have layered with strawberry mirror card, K&Co and Basic Grey papers. The image I have coloured with Copics I decided to use one of my large Dahlia flowers that I have  had stored away lol but thought they needed to see the light of day.
The gems at both top and bottom are the actual centres for the flower but have used them separately and added a Wild Orchid flower to the centre of the Dahlia instead, I like the effect a lot. I also added a die cut butterfly.
Here is a close up picture of the image.
I hope you like it and will join us this month showing your creations of 'Hot Colours'
Hugs to all see you later.

I have added flowers from Wild Orchid the leaves and butterflies are punched from MS punches.
I have also added lace and a flower charm.

Now onto my 3x3 cards project I have never made this size before but wanted to give it ago, I have a tutorial for a little gift box that is perfect for these little ones.
I was delving into my stamp collection, again, and found my Judikins Kew Gardens Cube stamp which I have never used, I also found the Judikins Postage Frame Stamp which is compatible with the cubes. All have been inked using Momento Black Tuxedo ink pad.
I then coloured them with watercolour pencils and Sansodor I cut them out and placed onto the little mini cards.
I have several Cubes and will be giving them all an ink up and make a complete set I think this will make a nice little gift for someone.

OSAAT #19 DT Card

Hi all this is one exciting day as this is my début DT card for One Stitch At A Time, I am so thrilled to be part of this wonderful team.
This week our theme is Stars and Stripes but as you can see from my card it can be any card or project showing stars and stripes in any colour or form like use ribbon as the stripes, punched out stars or maybe a moonlit night on the beach lol.........just let your imagination take over.
The winner of this weeks challenge will receive 3 images of their choice from Stitchy Bears.

I found these papers after rooting around in my stash I printed these off some time ago but I think the small star background is Bearlymine.
I have followed the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches for my card I have so wanted to join in this challenge for so long and this was my chance.
I have used an image called Emily by Lil Diva she reminds me of myself when I was younger and a bit of a tom boy, I was always playing cowboys and Indians with my mums sweeping brush as my horse lol...but then what can you expect being brought up in a house with five brothers lol...well that's my excuse anyway.
I have coloured Emily with promarkers added some star gems, card candy, flowers and sentiment.
I am also entering the following challenges:

Corrosive Challenge GDT Card

Morning all today is the start of a new challenge at Corrosive Challenges and this is my last GDT card for them.  I have so enjoyed being their GDT for the month of June and I am sure the next GDT will enjoy it as much as I have.
The theme this week is Use Lots of Flowers which is not going to be to difficult as I know how much flowers bought or handmade mean to us lol.
Here is my card which I hope will give a little inspiration to you.
I have used an 8x8 white card base the digi image which, I am sure you will love, is called Poppy and is a new digi image available from Funky Kits.
The red and grey bp I created myself with the use of MCS graphics programme, a couple of weeks ago my Oriental Poppies were in full bloom, last year I had about two, this year I had over fourteen stems and they were a beautiful sight so I took some photos.  I reduced the photo then tiered it into the bp, the mirror card has been embossed with the butterfly embossing folder I added some ribbon, flowers and the 'poppy' word is a stamp from Joanna Sheen's Poppy Fairy collection.  The image I coloured with promarkers.
Here is a closer look at Poppy.
My friend who pops in for a cuppa said it looked like a strawberry....cheek...lol.
I also used the field of sky stamp around the image which I think looks like poppy seeds.
I am also entering this into the following challenges:

Hugs to all and please stop by later to see my début card for OSAAT.
