This image is from our Sponsor is Sweet and Sassy,  I love it. It was very easy to colour, and I always use Pro Markers for all my colouring.  The pearls accents are Liquid Pears, and the image is matted and placed onto a paper doily which I bought at the supermarket in the cake section, lol.

DT Card for Crafting with Dragonflies # 28: Zentangle




Card 1 : Using the Butterfly image from Bugaboo

Card 2: Using the tulip image from QKR

Hi everyone, it's Dragonfly time again, yeah....
I don't know why I do it, but I keep challenging the team and myself every other fortnight to do something that is not in my safe zone, lol.
I love the look of Zentangle and have tried it once before, but it has been a while..and when I started to have a go, I realized it's not really that hard. It is just doodling within the lines. Mind you I only did a really easy one. But it still looks effective...we all own a black pen, so no excuse.....!!

Give it a go and see where it takes you, hop on over to the main blog and check out what the Dragonflies have come up with...Blessings Hilde

P.S: I couldn't resist, I tried my hand at another Zentangle, but chucked a bit of colour into it. This is also a Bugaboo image.......for the challenge we only want black and white...sort of grows on you....

Wedding card for challenges

Hi everyone, how are you all? I hope you are keeping well. What about how these weeks are flying by so quickly these days??.
Here I made a wedding dress out of some folded satin like paper and a sticker corset , stuck onto this paper and then cut out, I added some real lace and a little bow, plus bling, and all manner of glitz and more lace, some 3d flowers and more glitz.....
Loved making this ....was going to put a corner die cut at the top right, but my problem is putting on too much sometime, and I am trying to keep it elegant. Less is more....so to speak, lol. 
Hope you like it, this is just for fun.
