Travel

A very quick post today with this card. I have used a stamp set from Recollections called Going Places, and the background is a very useful stamp called "Mini Polka Dot Background' that I won from the lovely Jennie at The Artistic Stamper. I would like to enter the following challenges which are all for a travel theme.

Bart's BBQ

Isn't he just the cutest? I won this stamp recently from Chrissy Armstrong, and this is the first chance I have been able to colour him up with my new copics. I have followed the sketch at Sketch Saturday. The background papers are from my stash.

"White"

It is so hard to capture a white image on a scanner to show the details, so I had to adjust this a little in PS
I have basically followed a sketch from Sketch Saturday and used white lace with ribbon insertion, sissex folder for the cupcake, Go Create die, 3 shell buttons, and the word 'giggle' is embossed with 'winter illusions'
I would like to enter the following challenges

Pretty in Pink (and black and white)

For this card I have used a pink base card, layered with white card embossed with a Sissex folder.The PB stamp 'constellations' was embossed with 'Winter Illusions' which gives a beautiful pink shimmer in certain lights. I then used  little dabs of pink pearl paint here and there on the flowers. Finished off with a fabric flower which has a pearl in the centre.

Christmas

The beautiful glitter that I used on this card (Crystal Glitter Ritz) does not show up very well in the scan, but I can assure you it is a great product. The background is stamped with Christmas words (Viva Deco - My Paper World) and the star is drawn by hand.
