Hi all today I have two cards to show that I have made for some challenges:
My first card I am entering into 
For my card I have used 3 Bearlymine dp, the image is an Elizabeth Bell's digi image called A Tasty Read, I have coloured her with Copics then distressed the edges with both Vintage Photo and Worn Lipstick TH ink. I have also added a metallic green leaf, some die cut leaves, brown vintage lace, flowers and butterflies.
My second card I am entering into the following challenges:
I have used a Saturated Fairy image called Gypsy Dancer, as soon as I saw her I thought of the song sung by Cher, Thieves, Thieves, Tramps and Thieves, I just had to have her.
I am not sure my colouring of her has done her justice, I used Copics and wanted to create a sort of suede effect, I think I failed, never mind.  the papers are V&A Vintage Linen, I added a SU ribbon, bow and yellow buttons, I did stamp around the image with my 'sand' effect stamp.
I hope you like my cards and thank you for visiting. Hugs to all.
