Jenna and Daisy Dog

Welcome, and may you enjoy your visit today.

I have two cards to share using new releases from McMahon Five

The first image is from a new line Sue is carrying called D'Amour Allure
Which has both red rubber,digi and clear acrylic stamps.
Let me introduce you to Daisy Dog  who is available as a digi stamp in both JPG and PND files. Isn't she so cute!!

Daisy was printed and then coloured with watercolour pencils.

She was then mounted in a frame made using Spellbinders Labels 10 that was previously embossed. 

The sentiment was computer generated using the Gigi font.

The lower right corner was adorned with some paper flowers that I had coloured with ink and rhinestones. 

The final detail was some silver cord on the top.

The second is being released under the Solocosmo label and is entitled Jenna.

I printed the image onto linen textured card and coloured her with chalks.

I mounted her over some paper scraps that were on my desk, the green is from the Prima Fairy Flora 6x6 stack. All the edges of the layers were sponged with the green ink used to colour her eyes. 

The wee doily at the bottom was one that I had stamped and embossed some weeks ago when I was just 'puddling around' in the studio.

After mounting all the layers on a some speckled cream card, the corners were pierced and the edges sponged with Memento Bamboo Leaves ink.

Please do visit the other DT members' blogs (by clicking on thier names on the side bar) to see all the crafting beauty that has happened this week, and all the other releases.
