Saturday Inspiration

Hiya ,
Its definitely feeling like winter now ,but its a good excuse to stay in and make cards. Today's inspiration is following the ongoing challenge mostly,but as I had no yellow card I had to add Craft card instead,so please forgive me.I have used all Tattered Lace Dies on this project ,from the hearts to the Mia flower. It fit in so nicely with the vintage with a modern twist look  I was going for.The lovely image is coloured in using Polychromos pencils and the background to keep this soft has been done with chalks as I did not want to mess up the piece, a bit on the heavy hand with inks lol.
I chose to cut into the stamp slightly, it sometimes is nice to do this as it highlights areas ,like the face or flowers. I have done this a few times and it means if like me you don't like doing a stamp more than once ,you can do two totally different cards. Hope you like her and I hope you have a brilliant weekend.

Saturday Inspiration

 Its that time again for my Saturday inspiration.
Following the current theme of Thankful or Thank You. I have used the beautiful image and coloured her in Polychromos Pencils and used all the beautiful colours of Autumn that have been with us for the last month. I don't know about you but the Autumn and Spring always make my heart sing,and I never cease to be thankful that I can witness this miracle as it happens each year.
I chose to create a Circular easel card for her.I used Tattered Lace Basic dies to cut the base out and I used papers from one of the Tonic paper pad,This was mounted onto russet card. I then added the Topper and then cut out lots of small leaves using a punch and hand coloured them with my SN pens.On the bottom of the card I placed a beautiful cut felt circle I felt went well with this project,then added a stopper.. I then started adding all the leaves as shown and finished with the charm and twine bow :)xx

Challenge #11 Thanks or Thankful

Its a brand new month and a brand new challenge here at Morgans ArtWorld but before we get to that; I have a brand new creative team member I would like to introduce you to.
Hi my name is Samantha and I am in my 30's. I live in South Yorkshire in England. At the moment I have gone back to college to study Accounting. I live with my beautiful furbaby; Tiger and I am engaged to a wonderful (and understanding) man. I have always been a bit artistic, enjoying cross stitching from a very young age. I then progressed onto oil and acrylic painting. In 2013 I was introduced to card making by my future mother-in law when the boys went on a fishing trip; and I have never looked back. I love my digi stamps and my Promarkers and have found a new love for 3D card projects as well.I do like to learn new things and find that i am fairly eclectic in my style. If you would like to see more of my work head over to my blog at Angelic Bad Girl

So now onto the brand new challenge, the theme for this fortnight is 
Thanks or Thankful
And now onto the amazing projects showcasing Morgan's images by Lynn and the team. For more information on any of the projects; simply click on the girl's names to be taken to their personal blog.

Please welcome Guest Designer 
Carla
I'm an art teacher originally from New York State and now retired, living in Florida. For many years I have experimented with several areas of creativity. Ever since I was a child, I have enjoyed sewing my own clothes and making designer outfits for my dolls. I love to pick out the little details that  will make my clothing or vintage costumes and hand painted jeans look unique. Each bead, decorative stitching or embroidery is chosen with care, to have just the right look. For several years my husband and I covered arts and entertainment as correspondents for a local newspaper. I enjoyed participating in special events such as the Menendez Birthday Festival, which took place in St Augustine. For that event I dressed in a 16th century Spanish wardrobe of my own design. I've enjoyed the theater arts so much that eventually I tried out and won parts in four local productions including "Grease", "Oliver", "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat" and "Cabaret". I worked as a scrapbook instructor and paper crafting teacher for a year at Michaels, where I learned many new techniques and used a lot of great new tools! I'm currently designing scrapbook pages.
