Challenge Cards

Hi again,lol. I have made a few challenge cards, and I am tying them in with what I need for christmas, and the other hamper.

Basic Grey Challenge
This week the challenge is to use embossing on your cards. I used heat embossing. I stamped this ellie and embossed her with black powder, I coloured her with whispers pens and used foam pads to stick her to the card.I punched down either end of the card with a fiskars punch and overlayed the green paper over it. The letters are sizzlitts. The Basic Grey elements to the card are the green backing paper and the patterened paper the letters are on, both from the urban priarie pad another of my faves!.I hope you like. http://basicgreychallenges.blogspot.com/

Secret Craft Challenge

This week the challenge is decoupage. I had long given up on decoupage, the only elements I do is by using stamped images. I think its because I overloaded on decoupage when I first started crafting. I know I said I wouldnt show this santa again this week, but sorry I was the choice for this card, its for my sis's boyfriends little girl so all pink!!! The decoupaged element is santas sack, I coloured the images with promarkers, added some glamour dust, and the letters are sizzlitts. Hope you like. http://thesecretcraftersaturdaychallenge.blogspot.com/
