spotlight stamping

This is my first attempt at spotlight stamping and i loved it as it is quick and easy :) i chose to use the vase with flowers in stamp as its simple yet affective. i stamped the image on to normal card then part of it again on to an oval die cut and coloured in the petals and parts of the leaves. I then decided to add the red butterfly ribbon and the green dragonflies to go with the colours used in the image.

DT card for Fat pages and cards with attitude-Anything goes

Sponsor this week 
delicious doodles



i chose the digi 'steampunk sally' as she reminded me of the old school type tattoo's and i love tattoos lol. with the theme being 'anything goes' i opted for the black and red option as i think it looks really nice together and makes the digi really stand out. i then added the feather to the hat for a bit of addd detail and lso the card candi on the left hand side for that bit extra xx

why not pop along to http://fatpageswithattitude.blogspot.co.uk/ and take part in the challenge :)

book in a box

 This is the end result of my book in a box....omg how fiddly was the cutting out lol but actully pretty easy to do just took a few days waiting for glue to dry then i forgot about it over the weekend lol.  As you can see i went with the theme of green/blue  as i think they go well together.

 This is a close up of the book i chose the green paper to go with the white card with green tags on as they went well together. i curled the ends to give it a nice 3d look. then added ribbon to act as a book mark. The paper and card was from kanban whilst the ribbon star and with love/happy birthday peel offs were from my own stash.
 This is the box on its own i dind twant to do anything too fancy so just went with four flowers in each corner sticking with the colours used in the book. The paper used for flowers again was from kanban whilst the card buttons and twin were from my own stash.
this is a close up of one of the flowers on the box. as you can see i went with a small green button and threaded through blue twin. i did this on opposite corners and the other corners are a blue button with green twine.
