Purple Iris Card

This weeks challenge at Craft Your Passion is cards that are "Monocrhrome,"In other words, the project has multiple shades of one color. I chose purple. This great image is the "Iris Flower" from our sponsor, Delicious Doodles. I used my favorite color combo with Copic markers V93, V95, V97 and V99 to add the purple to the flowers.

This card has American Craft Cardstock and Pattern Paper. I used my Tim Holtz Distress ink to edge the image and finished this card off with simple button and ribbon embellishments.

Floral Forrest Fairy Girl

This weeks theme for the Stamping Dragon Challenge is all about "Things With Wings." It might be my favorite theme of all time. I used this adorable little fairy image from Whoopsi Daisy. They are our generous sponsor for this challenge. She has been colored with Copic markers.

The background paper on this card is the "Origins Revitalize" paper from Basic Grey. It is one of my favorites. I also used a second pattern from the same paper line along with American Crafts cardstock. I finished off the card with a variety of paper flower embellishments and some great green fiber from my collection.

Silver Movie Owl

I love this card. It has a lot of glitter and shine that doesn't come through well in the photo. I used the Yoo Hoo with Popcorn image from Stamping Dragon Designs. He have a great challenge going on right now with projects that are all about "Rock and Roll". Stop by the Stamping Dragon Challenge blog and show us your stuff.

I used mostly scraps for this card so I don't know the brand names, but I used several different types of cardstock and foil papers. The grey cardstock was embossed with my Sizzix dry embossing folder and I inked the card with black Tim Holt's distress ink. I also continued the look with silver ribbon, silver eyelets and silver stickles.
