Lots of Layers

Hello bloggers from a wet miserable Derbyshire :(

The theme this week at Nutcrafters is "Lots of Layers" and it is Jo's turn to host, so without further ado here is my card using a lovely digi/stamp.

Coloured with my flexmarkers and Promarkers - papers are freebies from a mag - including the bow and butterfly which i have glazed.
I used my new punch from Stampin Up for the sentiment and then inked the edges of everything with a SU inkpad to give a bit of a shabby chic feel to my card.

Please come and join us at Nutcrafters - prizes are on offer as always and we do love to come and nosey at your projects

Until tomorrow

Love and hugs

Birds and Bugs

Good morning Crafters
Lovely Autumnal morning today- lovely sunshine but with a bit of a chill in the air
So the challenge over at CRAFT Challenges this week is just perfect
Well Autumn has arrived and Halloween is just around the corner.

I have used an image from Hope Jacare called "Birds and Bugs" coloured with my Promarkers as usual.  DPs are from a fab pad I bought ages ago at the NEC and the swirl and butterfly I have inked with my Stampin Up ink spots.

Hope you will join in our challenge this week as always there are lots of lovely prizes

Ok now off to work I go

Have a great Thursday
