April at Stamping Sensations

Good Morning! It is the first Sunday of the month, so time for our April challenge at Stamping Sensations, where this month we have a great theme of........


********One for the Girls********

Now I decided to veer away from the predictable and create a couple of cards that are feminine, but not pink or cute! My first card features that Woodware Clear Magic single flower, coloured with alcohol markers and added glitter glue. The base card (Colourplan White) was stamped in citrus shades of Distress Ink using an Inkylicious leaf and the flower was mounted on a strip of stardream card, embossed with a stencil for Inky Doodles.
  The stamp on my second card is another Woodware Clear Magic one, and I have paper pieced it to imitate some of the wide range of converse style footwear available. I added white gel pen to the laces and eyelets.
  we are being sponsored by PDA Cards and Craft this month. I am a very lucky crafter as I live only a 25 minute drive away from PDA at Langley Mill, and visit (and spend lots!!!) often. Their paper and card selection are wonderful and they also stock a wide range of other crafting products, including some Woodware stamps, promarkers and stickles!
Here is the prize:                                                                            
                                        
 I'd be very happy to help you with the spending of that if you want, lol!  Be sure to pop over to the challenge blog and take a look at the stunning feminine creations that my talented team mates have created.
Thanks for looking and for all your lovely comments too.

Liking both cards very much Sally, but it's that flower with all the little details that really draws my eye.

Hope you have a good Sunday.

I saw your "Converse" card on the Stamping Sensation blog and had to come for a closer look... The paper piecing is fabulous (not sure I could fussy cut the lace as you did) and I love the how you matted the image with the same paper. I think it's stunning and perfect for a teenager!

The first card is beautiful, love the flower embossing it mirrors the gorgeous main flower. The second is fun and bright and modern, LOVE BOTH cards, so different, but GREAT.

Lucky you to have a super shop close to you, to help you spend your pocket money!
