Altenew: Be a Dreamer

 
Hello,
Today I have an Altenew/ dylusions card to share using one of my favourite stamp sets, Happy dreams. I love this stamp set because of all the dreamy sentiments and the pretty floral shadow and feather stamps. There's even the moon and the star's which are beautiful inked in gold or silver. Some of the sentiments featured on set are new year based but the set is perfect for all year around.

For my card (6x6) I inked my background, spraying polished jade, after midnight and lemon zest dylusion ink sprays. I then used the floral shadow silhouette stamps and feather stamp in black. I die cut a circle and stamped the large Be a Dreamer sentiment and placed it in the centre of the floral/feather designs. I finished by adding sequins to finish.

Decades: 60's inspired

 
Hello,
Today I have a card to share that I have made for this months challenge over at lili of the valley, which is to feature a female.
I've been waiting to get my hands on the new decades inspired digi images since they were previewed late last month and I now finally have some! 
My first make using my new images features this 60's themed image. I chose this image because if there was a decade I could visit it would be the sixties, just for the fashion. I  coloured my image with Promarkers. I used Nitwit collections happy too papers all matted on white and created different size circles to echo the pattern on the dress. I added some flowers, dew drops and a sentiment to finish.  
Challenges:
My favourite card bases are square because I find a square is the perfect shape to show off embellishments and layers well and lots of stamps fit well on square bases too.
