Give a Crafter a Cookie

I may just be able to sneak in a couple of challenge entries before we go away. Fortunately the image for the Art By Miran progressive challenge will also fit the Give a Crafter a Cookie challenge. It’s so much easier when you can combine challenges!

Materials used:SAM_1812(watermarked)
Art By Miran – Digi Girl 226 (only available from Facebook page)
stamping card
lilac and purple card
white A5 card blank
Britannia flower dies and leaves die
Shimmer White paper
Copic pens
acrylic happy birthday stamp
black archival ink pad

I printed out the image and coloured it in with the Copic pens then trimmed it to size and matted and layered it onto the lilac and purple card leaving a narrow border each time. I attached my topper to the card front.

Using the dies and the shimmer white paper I cut out five flowers and three leaf sprigs. I used copics to colour them before making them up into flowers and attaching them to my card base. I stamped the sentiment on the front with black archival ink and finally added a gem to the centre of each flower.

This is july16the inspiration picture for the Give a Crafter a Cookie challenge. I picked out fairy, butterfly and flowers to inspire my entry and also the pink and purple (though a lighter shade).

Thank you for dropping by. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
