Little Creatures

Welcome to the mid month challenges for Stamping Sensations and Penny black & More @ Allsorts, if you didn't get the chance to join in last month's challenges these could be the ones for you.

At Stamping Sensations this month the theme is 'All Creatures Great & Small'  I created a background using Distress Inks, then created a sun.  I used the hares on this as this card is for my Mam and Dad's Anniversary, I placed them on a toadstool and then added foliage to create a scene.  I gave it a bit of sparkle among the Meadow Grass.

We have sponsorship this Month from

Crafty Individuals with a very generous prize of a £25 voucher

And of course, the Design Team have created some stunners to inspire you. Please do pay them a visit to their individual blogs - it means a lot to know you appreciate their efforts.

This is for the following challenges:-
1. 2 Crafty Critter Crazies - #40 - Anything Goes With A Critter
2. Lavinia Stamps Creative Challenge - July - Favourite Stamps (Hares have to be a favourite)

And now onto my second challenge creation for Penny black & More @ Allsorts, where the theme is 'In The Garden'  It would be nice if you could use a Penny black stamp but if not anything that ties in with our Garden theme is fine.

This little mouse is just so cute, coloured with Spectrum Noirs and Glamour dust added to the dandelion.  I made a backgound paper using distress oxides and a dandelion stamp also adding glamour dust to those too.

We have prizes from Penny Black and Blade Rubber Craft
