you can't tell from the photo but the whole of the background is highlighted using a Sakura Stardust pen.Her lips and nails were also coloured with red Sakura.
The picture is decoupaged with the box having the most layers so that it stood out proud which was then embellished with gems.
The red card reflected the red of the box.
These are 5 cards I made for "Hobby Habbit" using Sandra Kuck Angel Stamps available here

I cut the scraps into 2" pieces backed each with Black card and played around with some of our stamps using mostly "Vintage Ladies" and "Silhouettes & Shadows" stamps by Hot Off The Press.
I laid the stamped images out and arranged them 'till I was pleased with the layout
then attached them to an 8"X8" piece of Black card using foam pads to lift every other image, this give the whole thing a two dimensional feel.
I think this would make great piece of wall art if I frame it, or else I'll have to invest in some 8"X8" cards and envelopes. ;0)

The background paper was white card rubbed over with ink pads then stamped over with various stamps, the main image was embossed with clear powder.
The coin on the ribbon would have gone better on the right but it covered the stamped fan image.
I enjoyed trying something new and think I'll have another go at it soon.

The card still seemed a bit too "bright" so I blacked around the outside with a Black ink Pad and stamped a sentiment on the bottom left.

I'm no great artist but I enjoy sketching occasionally, I draw in my drawing pad with pencil (usually while watching tv at the same time) scan it into my computer and "clean it up" using a REALLY old software.
If you can make a card from these I take my hat off to you !

Again I first edged the card with a Brown ink pad, then after stamping "Merry Christmas" on a strip of white card I used re-positionable glue to adhere some small die cut snowflakes.
I measured half way down the card then cut it across horizontally, then measured 1" down from the top of the card and cut again.

The "Bunny" is from one of "The Angel Company" stamps, I coloured him with shades of Brown water colours then cut him out.
I rounded the corners of the card then inked it with a Brown ink pad, cut out three 3"X1" rectangles, a 2"X2" and a 1"X1" square and rounded of the corners on these too, after inking them all I embossed the rectangles using Cuttlebug's "Swirl" embossing folder and inked the pattern over with the same Brown ink pad.
The 2"X2" was stamped with a swirl stamp and topped with the "Bunny" using foam pads.
I stamped ""Birthday Wishes" on the small square then spaced the panels out around the card using foam pads, I then made some small circles using an eyelet puncher from some thick Orangey Brown card and glued the punched circles around the swirls (these matched the "Bunnys" trousers perfectly)
There was a gap to the right of the "bunny" which I wanted to fill by using brads, I had Brown brads but I no Orangey Brown ones so I glued 2 small punched Eyelet circles back to back and used "Glossy Accents" to give them a bit of dimension, when glued to the card they looked and felt exactly like brads.
