Happy Spring from Flower Ant

This card is for the Mid March FB Challenge at Sassayaki Glitter.
Quick coloring with copics and cut out by using scissors, trimmer and spellbinder die.


A few more die cuts for embellishments. The central one at the bottom is snipped from tattered lace die and the corner dies are from cottage cutz . A few rhinestones to glitter up and the card is done.

Spring Card

Here's another card and this time for Scrapper's delight. I was able to walk up the stairs  to my craft room to create and sat and did 3 cards at a stretch and this is the 3rd one scheduled one a day :)
The image is a cute egg in a basket so I decided to make an Spring/Easter Card.
The die cut is frame die from Amy Designs. The embossing folder is cherry folder from either Darice or Sue Wilson. Not sure.
Image is colored using copics.

You Color my World

Made this simple card for Art by Barb FB Challenge.
I created the background using photoshop. And colored the image using copics.
Cut the grass using Martha Stewart Scissors which has multiple blades rather like herb scissors.
I hand drew and cut some copic markers to add  more embellishments .
But that's it.

Hugs - Scrappers delight friday freebie

Made a card with the cute friday freebie image from scrappersdelight for the FB Challenge.
I also used the xmas background topper from the shop for the background.
Had to manipulate with photoshop as I wanted the image to be white inside itself but to show the (outside the outline of the person) the background as transparent. Added sentiment onto the background
just the image (not the background) is colored using copics.


Matted the image onto gold paper and then red card. and added some bling.

Bearing gifts - Artbybarb FB challenge

Love the cute image bearing gifts which is the free image we get to play with this month for artbybarb FB challenge.


Immediately when I saw the image I knew I had to use the crafters companion edgeables die . Image is colored with copics, I did not want to use the traditional colors so decided to use pink and purple. But I had to use bling :) so added the mesh rhinestones.
