Hello lovely crafters - thanks for visiting! I hope you are all well, warm and happy!

I am just popping by to share a card I made for the Colour Challenge at Chocolate Baroque.

The stamps are from Chocolate Baroque ~
The beautiful lady is "Ophelia" - I cut out a mask to place over the image, 
then stamped the window (from the fabulous "Gothic Fragments" stamp set).

I coloured the images with Copics and  used Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink around the edges.
The "Amour" stamp is also from a CB set - "Fleur de Parfum de Paris", bought a long time ago.

I would also like to enter the DRS Thursday Challenge"Easy as 1-2-3"
(1 word - 2 stamped images, 3 card layers)!

Happy crafting ~

Hi peeps - thank you for popping over - hope you are well, and having better weather than we are in West Yorkshire today!

The card is not my usual CAS, but I love the cute image called "I am a Princess",
from A Day for Daisies.
The card will be going to my youngest Granddaughter on her next birthday  - she loves anything Princessy!!

I coloured the image with Copics,  and inked the background with Distress Inks.
The patterned paper layer is from the Prima Fairy Belle paper stack, distressed around the edges..
Sentiment from LOTV.
Crumb Cake base card and Linen Twine from Stampin' Up.
Lace - from my stash.

I am linking up with these challenges:-
A Day For Daisies - Add Lace.

Happy Crafting ~

Hi lovely  crafting friends - it's lovely to see you!
A warm welcome too, to my new followers - Sandma, Jacqueline,Wendy, Metsje and Laura.
I am joining in this week's LIM challenge, and it's colour week - that gets a Yaay! from me!

Chrissie and Team have a fun idea for us ...
Use opposite colours on the wheel (which you can see on the LIM blog).

I decided on a Red and Green combo, using one of my all-time fave dies - 
Memory Box Prim Poppy.
embossed a layer of white cardstock on my Stampin' Up "Simply Scored", then popped it up on the base card with foam pads.
The die-cuts and layered heart were coloured with Copics. Added a sentiment banner to finish.
Heart punch and banner punch - Stampin' Up. 

I would also like to enter That's Crafty Challenge - "Let's Keep it Simple".
Happy Little Stampers May CAS Challenge - "Die-Cuts/Punches".

Happy crafting ~
