Every Art Challenge No. 70 - Cute Christening

This is my creation for this weeks challenge over at Everybody Art Challenge. My friend's baby is being Christened just after Christmas so I thought I would make something now to have a break from Christmas cards. This is a digital image from Digitalpenciltoo. It's called Michael but I've turned it into a little girl! I've used stickle glue on the wings and halo. I used Ranger ink to change the colour of the flower, added a charm and hair pin with beads. The paper is Papermania Regency A5 paper. I hope you like the card and thanks for looking. Jenny

Everybody Art Challenge No. 68 - Stitching Real or Faux & Stamp Something - Thanks

This is my contribution to this weeks challenge over at Everybody Art Challenge, the theme being stitching real or faux. I am also going to enter it into the Stamp Something Challenge. Boy was this a challenge for me. I have an aversion to sewing machines and a needle and thread. I think it stems from my school days when I took a whole term to make a top only to find one side was smaller than the other and hours of work had to be unpicked. I never did finish it!
To ensure there were no tears I pricked holes in the paper measuring the gaps with a ruler and then hand sewed using the holes as a guide. I can't sew straight even with a straight line but never mind I think it gives the card a rustic look! That's what I think and I'm sticking to it.
I have added stickles glue for the bling and a black gem for the ring.
I've added a couple of charm brads although not easy to see. The first is a cosmetic bag, the second a made with love envelope. The flower is a midnight blue rose bought from ebay (Mulberry Crafts UK), I think there were 50 in the bag for about £2.50. Below that is a blue prima flower - Painterly Petals Morning Silk To finish it off I coloured a cherry blossom flower and added a couple of rose buds. and finally a circle of navy paper roughly cut.
