Week 194 Little Creatures

For our theme this week we have chosen
Little Creatures
We don't mind how little they are... cute, cuddly or creepy we'd just like to see something small!

Here are our cards this week.
The stamps are from Impression Obsession, a set I picked up in a sale bin at a craft show once, I think the ladybirds are cute! The grass tufts are from a tiny Art Impressions stamp.

I've used a digi stamp - this one was free but I'm sorry 
can't remember where I picked it up from.
The sentiment is Clearly Besotted: Sweet Little Sentiments,
Scalloped die also Clearly Besotted then for added interest
bakers twine, gems from my stash and glossy accents.

 Ladybugs and jar are Alysinkyfingers stamps.  I computer generated the sentiment as unfortunately the one that came with them had a typo in it.  The jar is lightly coloured with Copics and given a good dollop of Glossy Accents.
Please remember to keep your submissions Clean and Simple... last week a few entries were submitted without taking note of the focus of the challenge... some were not one layer, some with no reference to 2 of something and others not CAS. 
It seems easy for crafters to see a brief outline of our challenge on Paper Playful and then simply submit their cards without actually reading any of our blog post.
In fairness to those who always follow the challenges implicitly, if your submissions do not adhere to our guidelines, they may be deleted.

We love how the leaf colours are echoed in the corner of the card!

Look at Heather's wonderful colouring and fab CAS design.

Jan's stunning creation is breathtaking... wonderful leaves and such imaginative use of the wreath die!

What awesome simplicity, those wooden elements are a perfect touch!

Week 193 One Layer Card

What fun!
 One Layer Card
time once more.
For your cards this time, we would like to see 
It obviously doesn't have to be cats, but remember... keep it ONE LAYER, keep it CAS and include 2 of something!

Cute as a button (don't you think?) the Rockin' Robin set from
Clearly Besotted Stamps - new October release
consists of mini building stamps to create different looks.
The images are inked with Memento Inks with some extra inking for shadow
The spotty red tummies are 'winked' with Stella and I've heat set some
fluffy stuff and glamour dust to the branch to give it that snowy effect.

Totally stunning Impression Obsession stamp, Versafine black and hats coloured with Inktense pencil
Here I combined a couple of images from A Day for Daisies. I felt quite proud of being able to pop one behind the other as I'm not terribly technically gifted! I also rotated one flower a little as I preferred it at this angle.
I coloured them with Watercolour pencils, combining the colours with a water brush. I added some Glamour Dust and over-stamped the lot with a stamp from SU Gorgeous Grunge.
The sentiment was computer generated.
One Layer - Two flowers!
