My cards

Well today I manage to get a few cards made and I always find it quite challenging to do a male card so here is my little effort lol . The first thing i did was to use some light blue card stock. I then layered the card with a football background . I cut out some triangles from the same paper and put some white triangles in the center . The letter were stamped on the white triangles and then I used some miniature  cabochons and popped them over the top of the stamped letters i affixed the triangles to some string and attached them to another blue layer of card stock  . I then popped up a image onto some more football paper and this is my results . I hope you like it.

This was another card I made and I did the same for the name and message .

 I used layers of cream and blue

and finally I made a girly card
This was made by using an embossing folder which I inked over after embossing, 
then I layered white pink white. Inked around the edges of the card popped on an embellishment . Printed out a message using windows and then used a die cut over it .
I love to read your comments . Thank you for stopping by

Challenge 50 - Mystical, Magical Or Mysterious for LEJ Designs

Hello everyone I have enjoyed doing this design it is one of my favorites. 

I firstly  painted the circle with acrylic paint but I did not like the heavy colours I used so I painted very lightly over the top with white , which gave it a more subtle look. I then down loaded a beautiful digi by LEJ Designs called tree one and used my copic markers to colour it in. I then stuck it to my circle and used some stamped images of fairies to create a mystical scene . I then modge podged the whole circle with glitter modge podge and then once it was dry I put small amounts of glue around and used a very fine glitter to enhance the picture. I also used the fine white glitter on the LEJ Design digi . To finish off I glued lace all around and added trims then popped a hole in the middle and added a clock . I hope you like it . Please hop over to LEJ Designs Challenge blog and join in.
