BLOG HOP at Creative Ladybirds Creations

We are having a blog hop at creative ladybirds creations

We have some wonderful sponsors for this...

You should have arrived here from Carol and the next lady to visit is Helen

Here is a list of the design team involved in the blog hop in case you get lost on the way.


Please call on everyone and see their wonderful creations and leave a comment!!

I will draw one winner from all my hop post comments,

 (so long as I get a minimum of 15 comments) 

at the end of the month, for some candy!!

Now to my creations...I thought I would first remind you of some of my recent favourite makes using images from these sponsors:
From Ikes Art:

and a real favourite...

From Enchanrted Design Studio

Today's make - I have made a tag using Ike's  Poe Skull Bust
I coloured the image using Promarkers - greys and just a touch of yellow.
The tag is white card matted with some DP from Dragons Lair Designs

The moon is a triple stamped image using Kitchen Sink stamps using a variety of orange inks.
The edges are distressed with rusty hinge..
The bats and small raven are Viva Las Vegas stamps using Versafine.
Finally I added an eyelet, ribbon and lace across the bottom.

I will link this to Quoth The Raven Challenge Tic Tac Poe - Raven, Poe, Lace
Smudgy Antics May
Dream in Darkness 1st Challenge

By the way this is what I stamped on the reverse...

So from the dark to the light...I'd also like to show you a card I made for my sister-in law's Birthday...
a simple easel card

I will link this card to The Shabby Tea Room Welcome Spring
Happy Crafting!
