One Stop Craft Challenge 73 and Sketch Saturday Challenge 96

I have followed the sketch on Sketch saturday for this card and have used the fruity theme from One Stop. I have coloured Tilda with promarkers. The backing papers are  a freebie download from one of the craft magazines.Ribbon from crafty ribbons. I have used another one of my altered bottle tops as the sentiment on this card  again printed of the computer I then covered it in white glittery chalk and the anita's 3d gloss. Using the chalk in this way fills the gloss with a glittery sheen.

MSE K.I.S.S challenge

This is my card for the current MSE challenge. We has to use 1x patterened paper, 1x textured paper and 1x plain paper and 3 buttons or bows. I been a little naughty and used 2 flowers and a altered bottle top instead of buttons hope thats ok. The image is a recent freebie Jiggle from Stamping Dragon, coloured with promarkers and some stickles on his wings. The BP is from secret garden pad, green cardstock has been embossed with swiss dots folder. The bottle cap I have altered first of all I squashed the bottle cap in my cuttlebug which almost turns it inside out. ThenI printed off a smaller copy of Jiggle and coloured him then filled the bottle cap with anitas 3d gloss.

Couple of quick cards

Made this card quickly tonight very similar to one I made for furrypig have added a strip of blue between the embossed lines and some gems to the butterfly. Have also dusted the flowers with blue chalk.
Over on MSE lots of the girls went to the NEC today so those of us left behind had a bit of a virtual cake party to which we bought lots of very fancy looking cakes and best of all they were all calorie free! lol anyway Dawnteabag set a little challenge for us to make a card with a cake on it here is my effort.
I have used a sheet of paper from forever friends for you pack. Its one of those sheets with the image already on it I never really know what to do with these? I used 3 sheets to create a decoupage I'm quite please with it as I have never made my own decoupaged picture before although I think the sentiment could do with being a bit bigger as the top of the card looks a bit bare. I addes so punched flowers over the top of the vase as the printed ones looked to flat and were to fiddly to cut out.
Heres a close up of the flowers

Codi Stylin

I have followed this weeks sketch at Sunday Sketch & Stamp. The image is the fab Codi Stylin from Pollycraft coloured with promarkers with some silver gel pen added to the skull and the belt, the papers are from DCWV Rockstar pack. The purple cardstock is coredinations gemstones and has a lovely shimmer to it. The ribbon and brad are from my stash and the silver card candy from craftwork cards. The sentiment is from a forever friend stamp which I have stamped in silver ink.

Duck

I have followed this weeks sketch at Moving along with the Times. This cute duck is a digi stamp from Pollycraft coloured with promarkers with some stickles added to the icing , the papers are from Daisy & Dandylion picnic patch, ribbon from my stash and sentiment is also from Daisy & Dandylion.
