I have gone for it big time with the embellishments on this one but worth the result. All black and white with a hint of pink!
I have made a pink and girly card! the teddy image is from a penny black clear set and i have watercoloured him with shimmery watercolours by niji. haven't got a clue what the scrapbook paper is but is has a lovely foil detail all over it which i hope can be seen. The flowers are prima e-line and i have added some gems, some pretty pink ribbon with glitter hearts on and some prima flower centres. I also used my paper shaper punch to make some swirly shapes as leaves.
Really please with the end result on this one!

A nice sketch challenge this week and a blog hop. I used a stickeroo for the image and themed my colours around this.
The challenge and hop are at http://pennybfriendssaturdaychallenge.blogspot.com/

This weeks challenge is a sketch. I have used Basic Grey Papers and a punched strip by crate paper, i have stamped and cut the flowers and the images are coloured with pro-markers. I have added some gems throughout. The images are from the magnolia spring kit.
Thanks for looking
As the prize is an amazing array of tim holtz items i thought it only appropriate to do a bit of distressing!
The background paper is torn and distressed with brushed courdroy. I have stamped the flowers onto card which has been distressed with peeled paint, pine needles and vintage photo inks, i have cut and layered theM and used beads and wires to make the middles.
Butterflies are stamped on acetate which has been alcohol inked, i couldn't seem them very well on the background so distressed some card in a neutral shade and layered this underneath for a bit of dimension.
A few embellishments here and there and as Gordon says "DONE"
This card has taken me an age to make but i think it is pretty spectacular!
