CD Sunday Challenge - Winter Wonderland

I just love the wolf against a snowy landscape from Debbie Moore's Crystal Dreams CD.   It has been decoupaged and mounted onto dull silver mirri which has been embossed with a Tim Holtz Texture Fades embossing folder. The stylised christmas trees are from Elusive Images and have been stamped in Faded Denim Distress ink, cut out and glittered.  The sentiment is from Creative Expressions.

Thank you for visiting and I apologise for the shadow across the photo - the one and only ray of sunshine today appeared just as the photo was being taken!  Please feel free to leave a comment - I appreciate them all.

Rainbow Lady's Challenge - White Space

My 6x6 card is mainly white but with a diagonal dark brown panel to showcase the lovely Crafty Individuals bird heads that were stamped in Cocoa Memento ink. The leaf in the top left is from a Martha Stewart punch.

DragonsDream TIO #97 - Mother - Embroidery

My Mum was always well dressed and beautifully turned out.  Nails painted, hair done and never seen without full make-up.  A very hard act to follow!

The collage stamp is by Personal Impressions and has been coloured with pencils, flocked, glittered and the main rose decoupaged.  The stitching is the most I have done by hand for a very long time!  Thank you for stopping and looking - do feel free to leave a comment.  I appreciate you all.

DragonsDream TIO#96 - Dedicated Follower of Fashion

Tried something new to me this week and gone for the collage effect.  The lovely Gents Advertising Label from The Graphics Fairy (see sidebar) forms the basis of the tag, the two mini fashion pictures are from Joanna Sheen Fashion Boutique CD, the punk rocker is a clip art image transfer and the man with the natty whiskers is from Crafty Individuals.  The diamond stamp around the edge is from Clarity.  The top border of the tag has been coloured with copics, decoupaged and embossed for more dimension.  The safety pin, scissors and buttons are from my stash. Distress Inks used - Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain and Scattered Straw.
Hope you like it, and thank you for visiting.  Do feel free to leave a comment, I love to hear from you..

DragonsDream TIO #95 - Red Red Wine

Use mostly red was a condition of this challenge.  This is my second attempt at a tag for this weeks TIO challenge.  Red tags looked flat, couldn't see the detail and just looked messy.  I also had a problem in that I had no stamps that seemed to be appropriate, until I came across this charming lady from Inkadinkadoo, who seems to be saying "Cheers".  She is coloured with pencils and mounted onto some red card and cut out.  The  small wine label is a  magazine freebie and a wine glass base provided the circular stains on the tag.  The sentiment reads "For when the wine is in, the wit is out".  Generally true in my experience!

Roses and Peacocks

Seem to have made quite a few roses this week!  These are punched from metallic purple paper from a paperpack from Poundland.  The weight and texture is perfect for moulding the petals and I am very pleased with how they turned out.  My backing paper is from Peacock Summer Party CD by Artylicious.  As the gorgeous peacock feather swirl is so big, my card approximately measures 8 x 8 as I wanted to make it one of the main features.  The sentiment  from Elusive Images is embossed in Rich Razzleberry Moonglow EP and mounted onto a nestie oval.  This is going to be a 'posh' birthday card for somebody special and I suppose I shall have to make a box for it next!
I should like to enter this card for two challenges

RainbowLady's Challenge #168 - Let's Emboss It

The starting point for this card was the StampCamp old map stamp I bought at Port Sunlight earlier this year.  This is its first outing.  The image was stamped in sepia and very lightly coloured and then embossed four times and given the freezer treatment for the Cracked Glass effect.  The vintage motor is from an Elusive Images Edwardian themeplate and has been coloured with copics, cut out and embossed.  The textured 'road' behind is courtesy of TH Texturefades folder Bricked Effect.  The base card has been stamped with the map image in sepia. The luggage label stamped with a Kars sentiment and tied with garden twine.

DragonsDream TIO #94 - Bed of Roses

This is the first proper craft item I have made since returning from holiday and I enjoyed making it!  The challenge is to work roses and metallic into the theme and so I made the roses from aluminium tape coloured with alcohol inks in shades of orange, brown and yellow.  The acetate rose arch is from Joanna Sheen's Cottage Garden CD and the rose stamp from Elusive Images is embossed in black underneath.  The timely warning is one I heard in a film recently and thought it ideal for this project.  I must say, I think it is very true!

Glad to be back at TIO as an entrant and must say the Design Team tags this week are wonderful and so diverse.
