Sarah Kay Challenge - Week 5

This is another first for me - first time of joining in the Sarah Kay blog challenge. This weeks challenge is to use 3 buttons and 3 jewels on your card.

I used an A5 card blank and covered the front with some K & Co scrapbook paper. I coloured in my Sarah Kay image with my prismacolour pencils and added 3 blue gems/jewels. I matted the image onto different shades of blue card and then mounted it onto my card. I stamped three Stitchels flowers onto pearlescent card using blue ink and then cut them out. I put white buttons in the centres of the blue flowers and a light blue button in the centre of the white flower. I added some ribbon across the lower half of the card and then placed the cut out flowers onto my card using foam pads.

Tilda & Co Challenge 30

This is my first time of taking part in the Tilda & Co challenge and this weeks challenge is a sketch.

I thought I would try using some different colours for my card than what I usually use and I'm not too sure about this card - I think it needs something else, but not sure what. I used a 5 1/2" square card and then matted some double sided scrapbook paper which is attached using little brown brads. I coloured Edwin with my prismacolor pencils and mounted him using foam pads onto some Basic Grey paper and mounted that onto some copper pearlescent card.
