Cookie Challenge #42

It's time for another cookie-inspired challenge at If You Give a Crafter a Cookie. This week, the sponsor is Fresh-Brewed Designs.

I used a Fresh-Brewed image for my card and employed a little fussy cutting/out of the box technique. The image is colored in pencils with a little spica pen glitter on the bee wings. The faux stitching around the white oval is all hand-done. The papers are all snippets from my stash.

Hope you have time to join the challenge.

I am entering these challenges:


Pixie's Snippet Playground #225 -- use snippets
Word Art Wednesday #227 -- anything goes
Double D Challenges -- April showers bring May flowers
Craftyhazelnut's patterned paper challenges -- use patterned papers

Cookie Challenge 41

It's time for another cookie-inspired challenge at If You Give a Crafter a Cookie. This time, the sponsor is Kitty Bee Designs.

My card features a Kitty Bee image, colored in pencils with a little sparkle from a spica pen on the candle flame. Even when I was a child, I loved the pink/gray color combo, so I embraced it for this challenge.  The image is matted on a snippet of gray, and I used a snippet of pink dotted paper as well.  The embellishments are a couple of flags of grosgrain pink ribbon and a pink flower with a pink mini gem. (It's all about pink power!)  The gray ink for the sentiment came out a little lighter than I expected, but it's an SU sentiment that says:  The more candles the bigger the wish.

This card is for these challenges:

The Ribbon Girl -- April Anything Goes
Pixie's Snippet Playground #223 -- Use snippets
