I had to take it further and made both cards from junk. The first card made was for a man, I used a newspaper t.v listing page as backing paper, a beer mat made the t.v. with a thumbnail picture from a cinema magazine, a piece of old wire made the Ariel, burnt matchsticks made the legs and shelf and a piece of a clothes tag made the dvd.~. For the flower card I used a paper bag (which had held my latest craft purchases) for backing paper, sweet wrappers (I had to eat 7) made the petals, the bottom of a red wine bottle cork made the centre of the flower ( you got it I drunk the whole bottle), a piece of rope from a label and a cut off from another label finished it off. Great Fun!

Here is my effort for the http://www.daringcardmakers.blogspot.com/ little extra challenge. I think this rubber stamp is fabulous & have used it often.... For this card I have stamped onto white card and again onto pink slinky paper & gold card. I cut just the dress from the pink paper and the bonnet from the gold and stuck over white image. I then used flowersoft on the flowers, mounted it all onto card printed with "Fabulous" & added a few buttons.
How Fab is that!

I have been waiting for a good reason to use this stamp and what better reason than for Isabella's E challenge:-http://isascrapandstamp.canalblog.com/archives/challenges/index.html
For this card I made some paper flowers and heat stamped my "giant carousel egg" with stazon on to fantasy fibres, I then cut it out and assembled using foam pads. Sadly the scan does not do it justice!

Well here we go again with this weeks Daring Cardmakers challenge:-
The Old is the two buttons in the bottom right corner, found in a tin of old buttons belonging to my Grand~mother, they had brass rings on the back which I cut off with my husbands toe~nail clippers....(Am I going to be in trouble!) The new is the card blank and backing paper, obviously the blue is the predominant colour and the borrowed is the hand writing. I got my youngest Son to write it for me as he has ( in my opinion, (mind I am bias)) the most beautiful hand writing. The finished result " A right Mis~Mash". But hey it was fun!
I suppose I should really say that this one is "Done by Den & Ken"
