MAWTT Leaves or Trees

This week it was Sue's turn to choose the theme and she chose Leaves and/or Trees. Come along to Moving Along with the Times and join us.

My card blank is a large square by Joanna Sheen. I got my Brushos out again, as you can see. It's only the second time I've used them but I was quite happy with the outcome. The tree stamp is from Bee Crafty and I stamped it in Memento ink before cutting with a Spellbinders circle nestie and edging with Distress Ink. I used a Bee Crafty Inkable stencil of a large leaf and sprayed around the leaf image in Brushos greens and browns. I found the quote on the internet and after printing I edged that in Distress Ink and added a Recollections rhinestone to the corner. Job done!

My eyes are definitely better than they were but I still cannot cope with using the computer very long, watching television or reading. I suppose I'll have to get used to living with it. Thanks for calling by.

MAWTT Fairy Enough

This is my card for the challenge over at Moving long with the Times, why not come along and join us?

The large scalloped card is by Craft UK. I used my Brushos that I bought at Ally Pally for the background, just because I was dying to have a go with them. The Poppy fairy stamp is by Joanna Sheen and I coloured her with my Promarkers and a Sakura diamond gelly roll pen for the wings. After cutting with a large Spellbinders oval die the edge was coloured with Barn Door Distress Ink. The sentiment is also an Ally Pally buy, from Bee Crafty and cut with a scalloped oval die.

I'm still not able to enter challenges as my eyes don't allow me to be on the computer for more than a few minutes at a time. I have to have a break during this post. Thank you for visiting and hope to see you all again soon.
