MMSC73 New Adventure and Winging It

Wahoo - it is  Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge time and we all love that what fabulous cards you have shared with us this week - I love seeing that you have done, you inspire me with each card I look at!

I have used this image from our weekly sponsor PaperWorks.Co.  How cute is this - I had a lot of fun with her, stamping the image twice and colouring them with SU Chalks, cutting around the girl on the bike and popping her up on foam tape.

This next card is made using Priscilla's fabulous Dragonfly, you can see it here - I love colouring this image - over here, dragonflies are very 'in' at the moment!  I have printed two copies of the image and coloured with SU Chalks, cutting out the wings from one image and popping them up on foam tape to add dimension. 

These are cut out onto a Labels 4 Nestibilities and layered onto some embossed CS, using the D'vine Swirls embossing folder.

You can see the dimension in this photo, I have added pearls to the Nestibilitie and bling to the centre of the Dragonfly.  The DP has been embossed using Stylised Flowers and Vintage Corners have been added to four corners.  Two of the corners have had dragonfly brads added as a finishing touch.

and finally - this weeks sketch...it's "YOUR PICK" Make it fancy, clean and simple, or somewhere in-between.

  14. That little girl is so adorable! You have colored her beautifully!! The popping up really brought her "to life" as did the popping up of the dragonfly wings! This is such a beautiful image and you have really nailed it perfectly!
    I watched the chalking tutorial, I want to give it a try, you get such fabulous results!! I will need to practice lots before being brave enough to post anything!
    Your work is always so refreshing and inspirational!!

  15. Linda your cards are stunning. I love the little girl tooling around on here bicycle-that is just too darn cute-you have colored it beautifully. The dragonfly is so elegant and I love the sparkle on the wings. We are treated to double the pleasure, double the fun!!!!

  16. Linda these are so pretty. I love the girl on the bike. it remunds me of an illustration from a childrens book.


  17. Linda, sorry to be soooo late!! I've really gotten behind. I was finally able to upload my card yesterday. Whew!

    What's this??? Only 2 cards instead of 3 this week. My, my, my Linda, it may be the chopping block for you this week. However, I will say you have redeemed yourself with these beauties. The first one is adorable and the second one using Priscilla's dragonfly is a knockout. You really do have such a beautiful and unique talent Linda - even for someone without royal such as myself!!

    Hugs, Really, Hugs,
    Da Princess

  18. Your card is just too cute - the colors and image are just perfect.
