I was thinking about working on some cards. I checked my email and found out that Stamp Something's Challenge for this week was to embellish something. I dug into my stash and found these harvest shaped metal decorations that someone gave me. (I thought I would never use them.) The scarecrow is a sample sent to me in a swap, so I don't know who makes it. I colored in the scarecrow with my new Koh-i-noor woodless colour pencils (love them), blended with a paper stump and then chalked the image with Pebbles Pearlescent chalks before I cut it out with postage stamp scissors. I decided to spray the image with Preserve It by Krylon to keep the chalk from rubbing off.
I really liked the way it turned out. To bad I only have enough to make two cards.

This is a generic, sort of male card that I did in a challenge last month. I made the dragonfly's wings out of vellum. The lined paper is a reduced photo of some lined paper I made for a scrapbook page. Everything is aged with TH's antique linen distress ink by Ranger (one of my new loves).

Here is a fun layout I did for a challenge over at FLOS. I used the Beach Babes printout by the talented Charlene Gates. You can purchase her print and cut files as well as her cutter files (available in GSD, KNK, AI, EPS, SVG, and BMP/JPG format) over at Thats Scrap, Inc.

Here are a couple of cards I made using the Cracked Glass Technique from the Feb/Mar 2008 Technique Junkie Newsletter.
Stamps are Paper Salon Monogram Builder and See Ds Alpha. I used Whispers Black Archival ink, Pebbles Shimmers Pearlescent Chalks and Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink. Papers were from a scrap swap.
