Art By Miran Challenge 39

Hi everyone,

I hope you are having a lovely week. It has been raining a lot here lately, we need it a lot but I do love the sun. I'm so looking forward to some warmer weather. I find it much easier to craft when I am warm and the kids are outside not bugging me.

Anyway onto what I have been up to with my crafting. Today's card is for my daughters flute teacher as my daughter is really loving her flute lessons. I think she is doing great but I am probably biased. I have used the lovely Art By Miran stamp called Serenade. She is so peaceful and pretty.

Here she is;

I actually had a different plan for this card however I picked up my RV's instead of my R's to colour so I had to totally change my plan. I found these fab Prima Botanical papers that I got as a magazine freebie in my stash and all was well again.  I don't normally use so many flowers but I just had to add them to this pretty girl. I wanted her to have a tranquil meadow feel. I hope you like her.

I would love to see what you have been up to so get crafting then enter ABM Challenge #39.

Cheers Nicole

Art by Miran Challenge 38

Hi there,

I have had another play this week with one of Mi Ran Jung's fabulous images. I really just can't get enough of them.  I have used Mia this time and teamed her up with some of my favourite Echo Park Paradise Beach papers.  It is Winter here at the moment so this card made me feel all warm and beachy, just lovely.

Here it is;

I had a bit of fun with my dies this time around, I have quite a few and I am sure they all feel neglected. I used a combination of My Favourite Things (brown stamens), Memory Box (Chloe Stem) and Elizabeth Crafts Dies (flowers). I love mixing about the papers to make flowers that really stand out. They are fairly simple however I think they were just enough to finish off my project.

I hope you have been having some fun in your craft room lately and you are able to play along with us this time around at Art By Miran.

Cheers Nicole
