Monthly Sketch

Hello there fellow paper crafters

Well it's time again for the weekly challenge over at Bearly Mine Challenges and this week its the monthly sketch challenge.

Before I show you the sketch and my creation I would like to say that Donna has a Bank holiday sale happening.



So now onto this week's challenge, it is a sketch and as I've said before I just love a sketch challenge, if you are pushed for time it makes life sooooooooooo much easier.

Silly me had already created my card for the new Steampunk Fantasy papers and then realised I hadn't looked at what the challenge was going to be. Looked and found it was a sketch and my card was close but not close enough to use, so I've put it aside for one the next up coming challenges.

I've had a lot of fun using the new Steampunk Fantasy 1 & 2 papers and they are absolutely awesome, I love how you can make pretty things and metal/mechanical things all work together.

So onto my card

 
 
I found this image while trolling the internet for some STEAMPUNK digital stamps to use as I didn't have any in my stash. (always a good excuse to get some new stamps) I thought she was perfect for steampunk and appropriately called STEAMPUNK FAIRY, I found her at Fairy Ink where they a great choice of stamps.
 
Here is the sketch to be used
 

 
Here as some additional photo's of this card.
 
 
 
 
The products I have used are
 
Bearly Mine Designs - Steampunk Fantasy 2 pp's
Bazzill cs
WOC & I Am Roses flowers
Tim Holtz metal cogs
Marianne Designs die & stamp
Spellbinder Dies
Charms
Lace

Diamonte gems
 
Unfortunately I haven't been keeping a record of the copics I'm using as I've been putting them away straight away so I can keep creating. I promise I will do better and either taking a photo of the ones I've used or at least writing the colours down.
 
I will be entering this card into the following challenges.
 
 
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
 
Vintage Stamping Challenges - Things with Wings
 
 
 
Stamping Sensations - Wings and Things with a touch of Vintage
 
 
 
So that's it for me tonight, fingers are getting really cold as the temp & wind has been quiet cold today.

Colour Challenge

TGIF

Hello fellow crafters, it's that time of the month again over at A & T Emerald Faeries and this month we have a beautiful "Colour Challenge" for you.


 
Aren't these colours absolutely amazing, Tracey has done a wonderful job choosing them for you. I will admit I love all of these colours but I did struggle a little to get them all to work in a card together. I haven't used much of the purple colour range except in my colouring as I had no pp's in my stash that would suit.
 
 
 
 
 
Even though I had trouble with the colours, the ones I used all ended up working out really well together.
 
The products I have used are
 
SU cs
Electric Ocean & Peanut Butter digi papers
Marianne Designs stamp & Dies
Spellbinder Dies
Kaiser pearls
WOC & I Am Roses flowers
Vintage seam binding ribbon
Stamens
Ink
 
Before I go on to say where I will be entering this card I would like to let you all know that we have SOME VERY EXCITING NEWS HAPPENING HERE AT A & T EMERALD FAERIES AND IT WILL ALL BE ANNOUCED ON THE 1ST OF SEPTEMBER. So all of you Emerald Faeries fans you will be pleasantly surprised and very excited like us.
