Welcome the weekend!

I thought I would group a few cards in one posting today.
The first is for DP2 Challenge. It really was a challenge too, as the instructions were to use one of Mo Manning's images and 1 piece of ribbon... NO layers!
Ahem! Easier said than done. Anyway here it is, image and sentiment printed right onto the card and coloured with Copics. I shall have to add to layers to the inside of the card however to disguise where the colour from the markers has bled through. The ribbon is threaded through 2 holes, starting from the inside and finishing up on the outside. I added adhesive pearls where the ribbons go through the card.
This next card is for the 'Sepia' challenge at Creative Inspirations.
The background was stamped with the French Script background stamp from SU, and distressed with a random dot stamp using distress inks. The image is from a Magenta stamp which I bought on a visit to my son in Bury St Edmunds. This is also distressed and coloured using distress inks.
The last one is for the Touch of Spring challenge at Stamp Something. I don't quite remember where the stamp came from, I think it was probably eBay, but it is unmounted and so I don't know the make. The sentiment is a Debbi Moore stamp.
It's freezing here at the moment. There was a hard frost this morning but the sun is shining and the sky is blue!
I haven't got any daffodils out yet, but I have spotted a snowdrop or two in my garden... (thinks...) I must dig out my snowdrop stamps!!

  4. Chrissie - I love all three cards - your colouring is brill - the mo imgae looks like a print so does the second one - but the spring image is just so fresh and full of promise - I love spring.
