Birthday at From Screen 2 Scrap

Hi everyone, hope you're having a good day!

I made this layout for my daughter's 13th Birthday - her cake is supposed to be a DS with frogger game on it. 

The criteria is to use inspiration from a movie poster - The Birthday Princess which has a lot of pink on it.

Its all about the vintage - love

Its all about the Vintage are having a 'love' challenge.

I made this 'lovely' easel card for the challenge.  I embossed the edges with roses using a brass stencil and light box (haven't used that for a long time!! since I bought my cuttlebug)

The butterflies were cut on the cricut and painted with perfect pearls powder.

The lovely couple are from Oxford Impressions Paris plate.

Have a good evening

Dragon Tales - Skyrim

Smudgy antics current challenge is called
Dragon Tales
I thought a Skyrim card would be perfect.  My son plays this game on his xbox all the time and there are lots of dragons in it too!
I used a map of Skyrim as the background and coloured the dragon with Promarkers.
The eyes are red glitter glue and in the corners used cosmic shimmer bronze pva for the 'brads'.

Thanks for looking
Bye for now

Less is More!!!

Hope you are having a lovely restful Sunday,
the weather has been lovely here today, so good in fact, we took a little walk along the beach to the ice-cream van at the harbour!! It was very nice too :)

I am really getting into these less is more challenges - I think they take a lot more thought than the 'pile it on' cards!!
The challenge is to make a one layer card with fur or feathers on it.  I think I did quite well because my daughter ran her finger over it to check it really was one layer! :)

 I have found that DL card blanks are really good to use for clean and simple cards - not too much space to use.  
First, I stamped the bird (from my new stamp set - bird script, by Papermania)
Then masked it and stamped the music over the top.
I then masked the top and bottom with post it notes and used distress inks to colour the band across the card.
I dabbed black around the edges of the bird to lift it off the background a bit.
Lastly, I used a thin black pen to do wiggly lines top and bottom a la Barbara Gray!! lol!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Thanks very much for visiting
