Had a days crafting at friends and decided to try out Grunge Paper.
I used a PaperArtsey cutting die then used distress inks to colour..
I then stamped an image on them with stamps which matched up with the dies.
I also cut out the leaves which came with the PaperArtsey Stamps.
I distressed the leaves then used my pyrogrophy tool to make the veins in the leaves.
I used a hat pin for the centre of the rose.

Anne's Challenge...Clean and Simple..

This is my card for Anne's challenge...clean and simple.
At last I have caught up.
I used my Cuttlebug Universal embossing folder for the sentiment.
The layering is cut from a Spellbinders Nesties Die...
And to finish I used a Sizzex die to cut out the corners.

Fathers Day Card.

This card started off with making a grunge tag at a friends house.
I then decided to carry on the grunge theme with a card for father's day.
Everything on this card is made from scratch including the flower in the centre.
The lettering was cut out on my new toy..the Ecraft made by Craftwell.
On the tag I fixed a penny on one side and some old parchment nibs on the other.

Lorraine's Challenge...Use a sentiment as the main feature.

For this card I stamped an image using brick red distress ink.
I layered it then cut out the corners with a punch then added some gems.
The corner flower is made out of Craftwork cards Candi dots.
These I learnt to make at the lincoln show I went to recently.

Zoe's Challenge..Including an Aperture.

Well here is Zoe's Challenge.including an aperture.
You may well ask why there is two cards .
Well I started the parchment card then made the bauble card in the mean time .
It seemed a shame not to finish the parchment card so I finished it and decided to show both cards.
Sorry about not been able to enlarge all the images, if anyone knows how to do that please advise me.

Clare's Challenge. Anything but a Card.

Well Clare sorry about the delay. Hope you think it is worth the wait.
The main is made from parchment.
I had trouble getting a candle so I improvised and made my own, I had to adjust the pattern as the candle is supposed to be the same width all the way up.
The red parts are ribbon with decorated parchment flowers and gold star peel offs on the star shapes.
