Witchin you a Happy Halloween and More

This is another post with three cards involved. And what a mix.
First I have this card where there is no stamping but it looks unbelievable IRL.
I used a leaf stencil from Stamplorations. Ohh my goodness I had so much fun
trying different colour mixes. The one I am sharing today I am using Transparent
Holding Paste mixed with Distress Inks - Orange, Red and Yellow. I made up three
separate mixes.

I used a spatular and spread a bit of each colour here and there then pulled it
across each other to end up with these colours. They are so vibrant I love the look.
I then die cut a couple of  pieces of gold vellum and a piece of gold mirror card
stock to make the leaves. Attached them at the top with a gold sparkle gem.
Its interesting that in the photo it looks as though the card has a curve
in but it is cut straight. Thats just the way the photo turned out. I finished the
card off with a gold die cut 'thanks'.

Mt next card I have made using this wonderful peacock
stamped image that my wonderful friend Ruth sent to me to
have a play with. This stamp is from a relatively new company
Krumspring Stamps and all the stamps are designed with triangles
within the pattern. They are so cute and her style is wonderful. Go check out
her shop, Instagram, you won't be disappointed. I plan to purchase as soon
as my buying freeze is finished.

The stamped image came in black ink on watercolour paper so
I have coloured with my Zigs blending the different yellows
together. The theme for one of her challenges going at the moment is
yellow so yellow I have gone. I added some flowers that I die cut
from yellow cardstock (cute flowers with little stitches in all
the designs).

I added some yellow sparkly gems for the flower centres
and a gold mirror cardstock die cut 'Happy birthday.

My last card is another Halloween card. Who I will give these too I don't know as 
we don't do halloween but its been fun.

This cute as image is from Sassy Cheryl's and I hate going there
cause every time I visit I see more images I cant do without and
she has been busy drawing so there are some brilliant new stamps.
You can see the sparkle on the bee wings anther spots on her dress.

Isn't this the cutest. I have coloured with Copics and added bits
of sparkle with my glitter gel pens. The sentiment comes
with the image and I finished it off with my Autumn colour
sparkly gems.

Before you go don't forget The Flower Challenge ends soon so if
you were planning to share a card you only have until the 25th. We have been
