Creative Moments challenge – Anything goes

I have 3 cards to share today, all for the Creative Moments challenge and all using digis designed by Kristyn McInnes -Buckingham, from her Oz new release at My Stitch Back In Twine.

The first card uses and was was coloured red using a Ruby Promarker before have glitter glued on.  The backing paper is vintage Kanban, but it reminded me of the wicked witch’s guards.

Next, I have used Papermania capsule papers and embellishments in Wild Rose and used Promarkers to colour The balloon.  Silver accents were used and i added a pink cross and congratulations sentiment so the card could be used for a church wedding or baptism.

Last but not least, Poppies!  Simply coloured using Promarkers again, this image was cut out and mounted onto black which enhanced  the littered black centre of the flower.

This is one of the cards I have made for him using a Mo Manning digistamp. I have used age numbers from Kanban, a self printed sentiment and 2 leaves from the little book of sentiments for men from Hunkydory.  They have been layered at rightangles behind the coloured image and placed onto a gignhambackground.

But this is a very close second!  Made entirely using a Polkadoodles CD, I did a lot of fussy cutting to make this circular card.
