Morning everyone, I hope you have had a lovely weekend, I have been busy getting some much needed crafting time in on Sunday! Mark is now off work on Sundays until March, so I will be making the most of having a bit of 'me' time!
Onto this weeks challenge over at Pear Tree Designs, this week its that one that we all LOVE, Free For All!
We are sponsored by Crafty Sentiments Designs!
We were fortunate enough this week to be given a couple of images to play with and here is what I have created, so if you would like to take a look at more of whatCrafty Sentiments have to offer, why not take a look at the store?
The first card I have made is using the digi 'Bear Couple 2', I felt it was the perfect image for an engagement card, after all it is coming up to that special day of the year when many people will 'pop' the question!
I coloured them with my pro-markers, i tried to make them look fluffy but I think that is a technique I need to practice! Thea heart that they are mounted on was cut from a piece of white paper, I coloured with with my pro-markers, I used poppy to colour the heart then went round the edge with cardinal red. I then inked it up with versa-mark and heat embossed it with ultra thick clear embossing powder, as you can see in the photo below, I didn't get a sooth effect that I was hoping for, so again I need a bit more practice! But I think it looks OK!
This is just a close up of the bears, they do have a bit of tone and texture! The purple paper at the back started life with me as plain white, I used my Wisteria cats eye ink to create the paper, I just dabbed it all over!
I would like to enter this card to the following challenges;

The other card I have made it using 'Blitz with present', I thought she looked so adorable and so versatile too! She could be a Birthday Card, Thank you card, Christmas card, they list is endless! I decided to make a thank you card, you never know when you may need a little card to say 'thank you'!
Once again she has been coloured with Pro-markers and cut out, the background of the card was once again dabbed with the Wisteria cats eye.
I decided to add a bit of ribbon to this card, I couldn't find a colour to match so decided to be daring and go for red! I then stuck three 4mm rhinestones on each end and the using peel offs I wrote 'Thank you very much!'.
Well I hope I may have inspired you this week to join us at Pear Tree Designs!
