The Paper Shelter Summer Break 2 week challenge - Anything Goes


I have been wanting to try my hand at darker skin tones for some time now and decided to use the beautiful Josephine digital stamp. I coloured her with copics. The background paper is Heartfelt Creations from the Daphne collection. This paper is so gorgeous! I didn't want to add too many embellishments, so I just added some peach and silver trim on top, a beautiful big bow and a blend of colourful roses.

The Paper Shelter Challenge #302 - Dies and/or Punches


I went for a sepia look on my card this week. I used the stamp Vintage Seamstress. She is coloured with Copics. I used a die for the shape of the card and added ribbon and lace through the spaces. I used a Martha Stewart border punch above and below the image. I stamped the edges of the image with a zigzag stitch stamp. The corner heart and buttons stamp and the sentiment are part of a stamp set. My papers are from DCWV Linen and Lace paper pack. The bottom embellishments are buttons and I have added a variety of flowers and smaller buttons to finish it off.
