Challenge Winning cards

An unproductive break....

I've had a break from blogging this past month... a mixture of being busy at home and work and a bit of a deflated mojo! I've only made two or three cards in the past month and those were only for my special customers. To try to get back in the swing of things I bought some downloads from the Pink Petticoat site with a wedding theme and have been busy manipulating the images and just having a good play with sizes and colours. However, sometimes simple is best and I'm pleased with the overall look of this next card...

The image been coloured with pro-markers and the flowers have been decoupaged. I then painted over the flowers and heart with some pearlescent glue to add some sparkle.

The next card I made is just plain odd - a King Charles cavalier spaniel theme for a 50 year old lady! Hmmm... I knew that paw paper I got free with Papercraft Essentials would come in handy one day! My favourite bit on this card is the paws up the side where I tried to echo the pattern on the paper - apart from that it's a bit naff!
