No stamps # Creative Card Crew

Hi crafty friends, this is my last post as DT member for Creative Card Crew.
I've enjoyed my time with the team but feel it's time to move on to pastures new, as time pemits with my commitments at home.

The challenge for this week is

NO STAMPS... you can use digis but if you feel like a tougher challenge leave these out too.

My DT card

I've used the die cut decoupage by Jolly Nation for the image
I tried to make the front look like doors opening in to a ballroom.
I just cut the curtains free hand.
Paper from Craftwork cards,
Martha Stewart doyle punch
and a bit of recycled ribbon, (you know the ribbon that keeps popping out from your neck line.... meant to hang a garment up.)

Thanks for stopping by

My DT card

My inspiration for this card came from Sue Nelson, thank you Sue for showcasing this lovely embossing folder by Craft Concepts and available from Cutting Edge Crafts.
Sue's site is well worth a visit!!!
The frame just fits onto an A6 Bazzil card. I gave my beloved Copics the day off and coloured this gorgeous
 Penny Black ted with Promarkers.
Bear ~ Satin, Putty, Tan and Cinnamon
Clothes ~ Azure
Fowers ~ Pear green, Khaki, Pink carnation, Orchid, Buttercup, Pastel pink, Lipstick red, Tulip yellow, Peach, Terracotta, Lavender and Powder blue for the shadow.
I also used black and burnt umber Polychromos pencils for the deeper shadows.

I heat embossed the Personal Impressions sentiment with cosmic shimmer amethyst mist lustre embossing powder.
The button is clear I stuck a piece of the Bazzil paper on the back and the ribbon is a good way to use up all the little ends.

Challenges to share with
Paperplay ~ Embossing
Sarah Hurley ~ embossing
Totally Papercrafts ~ add buttons

Thanks for stopping by have a fun weekend
