I used a freebee (get it!) from the Paper Smooches blog coloured with copics, found an image of a jar and used honeycomb paper from Pink Petticoat. The bees bodies and wings are shimmery but doesn't really show up in the picture. I used glossy accents on their eyes too.
I made this for the Birdie Brown September Challenge. I used the freebie provided to make my card. It's not easy to see on the picture but I cut out the middle pumpkin and layered him and added glossy accents to their eyes. The paper was a freebie from Summer Driggs
For Simply B Stamps your challenge with Bonnie Skullbabe you must do a color combo:
Hot Pink, Lime Green, and Black (this is for your colors of clothing, papers, embellishments).
I will admit I did mine very last minute, I didn't really think ahead and had a very busy weekend (thats my excuse for my atrocious colouring!) but I finished them off and posted them to the stamping chef gallery.
I had an awful time with the layout of my second card, it just didn't seem right. then I turned it 90 degrees and had a brain wave! It's not how I pictured it but I'm fairly happy with it.
I'm taking part in another swap with the Simply B Stamps Fan group that I'm a part of on Facebook. It's great fun doing these swaps!

I was partnered with Maria for this swap. The first package she sent went missing, sadly so she sent me a second package. She sent me some beautiful ribbon, I was so pleased with it all! Thank you so much Maria!
The only problem I'm going to have is hiding it (especially the beautiful skull tape) from my daughter!
Hop your way on down the rest of the list to see all the other delights people were sent. Next on your journey is -
I made this for the July challenge at Birdie Brown. This months freebie is really cute and I couldn't resist making a card with them. I coloured the dolphins with copics then cut them out and played with layers. I don't think you can see it very clearly in the photo but the 'portal' is recessed, if you see what I mean?
I actually got to use some washi tape for the first time in ages too!
I coloured her with a combination of promarkers and copics. Please don't look too closely at her hair, it was a total disaster from the start and my pen leaked half way though. I tried to save it as best as I could but I'm still not happy with it. Backing paper and sentiment are form Pink Petticoat and I added glossy accents to the starts to make them stand out a little more.
