Relaxing frog



   This week the theme for the QKR Stampede challenge is anything goes with the twist of embossing of any kind.
   I embossed leaf green core'dinations cardstock using the Sheena Douglas folder grassy swirls and rubbed olive green Distress ink over the embossed areas before matting and layering it onto olive green card and white card.
   The frog image called relaxing reading (number 24214) was coloured using Promarkers, fussy cut and attached to the card using glue gel. I cut several leaves from various shades of green card using Tattered Lace's tri dies  called Sophie. Some of these I embossed using the accompanying mini embossing folder, to others I attached letters cut using Tattered Lace's alphabet dies to form the sentiment.

Autumn teddy



   The theme for the challenge at Send A Smile 4 Kids is fall colours and is being sponsored by Little Blue Button Stamps.
   I have used a sheet from Hunkydory's Little Book of Autumn and matted and layered it onto deep orange card and white card. I edged the sheet using copper peel off strips and then used additional sheets to decoupage the image. After adding Glossy Accents to the bear's eyes  and muzzle I added a copper peel off sentiment.
