One Post Four Cards Six Challenges

This is my entry for this weeks Carols Sketch Fun and is a little different in that I have used vellum. I have used a mixture of backing papers including embossed pearlescent papers the main image is all vellum the flowers are mounted on a vellum frame which I have paper pierced then added the vellum flowers I also printed the butterflies onto vellum then coloured them with Prisma pencils and used sansodor to blend I added some pearls for the bodies and a gem brad for the centre I have added some gold pearly doodles for extra effect I hope you like it now onto the next
This card I have created for The Sugar Bowl challenge based on the sketch and Stamp with Fun the requirement being to use Pearls. The bp are freebies I have added some lace, flowers and pearly doodles I have also used my MS punch on the side border the image I have coloured with promarkers, now the third card below
This one is for the Spoonful of Sugar Challenge the sketch and for Simon Says Challenge the theme being 'Distressing' I have used the same image as above but coloured differently in promarkers I have done a lot of distressing on this card and thoroughly enjoyed it I have distressed the backing papers the side panel the circle and flowers with different but complimentary colours of Brilliance ink. Now onto the final one for today
This is my entry for this week's Friday Sketchers and have used a Mo Manning Digi Image called 'Sinatra' I have coloured it with promarkers using the blending technique that I followed in a tutorial on Passion for Promarkers. The bp is from a RAK the pearlised embossed lilac paper is from my stash I have added some gems and another one of my vellum butterflies.

I hope you have enjoyed viewing these cards and your comments as always mean so much to me I hope you like them and some of the different techniques I have used. Once again you have all inspired me so much to try something different and challenging so thank you hugs to all.
