Fall Colours for Galz

Hi, today a new challenge starts at Cardz 4 Galz.
Amy, over in the US has chosen for us
Fall (Autumn ) Colours
Please pop over to check out the inspirational creations from the DT.
For my card, I have used as many of the autumn colours as I could
manage to work in my design. I have blended many of the TH Distress
Inks onto a 6" square card. Splattered with water to create water splashes.
Stamped with swirls by Sheena Douglass, first with Black Versafine and clear 
embossing powder, then with Versafine and Gold embossing powder.
I used stamps from a Dare 2B Artsy Autumn leaves set, including the sentiment. 
The stamped butterfly is from a very old but useful set of butterflies by
Debbie Moore. Lastly I added white dots to highlight some of the darker areas,
Hope you have been inspired and will have a go. Thanks for popping by.

No Patterned Paper

Hi, welcome to my blog. Today begins a new challenge at
Fliss will be choosing the winners from the entries for
No Patterned Paper
The DT have excelled in producing their creations, please pop 
over to check them out.
My card seemed to slowly evolve from scraps and items amongst 
the mess on my desk from either previous projects or laziness.  
There was an embossing folder which hadn't found it's way into 
my E.F. storage system from Crafter's Companion. With this I embossed
the black card. I rubbed over with Gold Wax Patina, also on my desk. 
The piece on the side is a leftover from another project. The colours have
been built up with various ink sprays. 
The flowers are stamped with Leonie Pujol - Everlasting Love stamps.
I had intended to use these to decoupage but changed my mind.
The sentiment - Crafter's Companion. again , left from another project.
The card finished, some of the items have now been put away.

Hi, welcome to my blog. Today is the start of a two week challenge at

Getting ahead I have made another Christmas card.

The robin is from Tall Tails from Katy Sue Designs.
I love these stamps there are four main ones, the robin, an owl, 
a reindeer and a mouse. Lots of little extra stamps.
I used Distress inks to colour the backgound and Promarkers for the robin.
I decoupaged the robin's body and scarf for extra dimension. 
Quickie glue pen and Glamour Dust glitter to crete the icy snow.

Hello, thanks for your visit. Today I am entering two cards into the new 
challenge of Wheels at CD Sunday Challenges.

The Best of La Pashe 2012.
I have added some stamped cog like wheels with a stamp I bought 
at Hobbycraft some time ago, I keep it with my steampunk stamps, not sure 
of the make etc. I added varied black gems to the centre of the wheels. 
The main image is decoupaged  in several areas.
