I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with likeminded people.
I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself. This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!
So without further ado onto the challenge and what the team have come up with this time
This is the first time I have ever hosted a challenge and so I decided to try a recipe, after all I do like cooking as well as crafting lol. It has turned out to be harder than I expected to stick to it.
I have used  Tilda wearing Love Jumper for my main image, 2 design papers from my stash and my 3 embellishments are a Die cut heart, a DooHickey flower and some ribbon.
Please let me know in your post what ingredients you have used in your recipe.
My ingredients were two backing papers, one image and three embellishments, two flourishes and a little heart on the I of anniversary.
My 1,2 3 are a Ching Chou Kuik image coloured with Promarkers, two papers from Papermania and three embellishments - two die cut flowers and a heart gem.
My ingredients are a stamped heart image, designer papers and my embellishments are some ribbon, a heart brad and a glittery brad
I used an old Tilda stamp for my card. She, of course, is my 1 image and is watercoloured with a bit of glamour dust for sparkle. My 2 DPs are the heart paper (Me & My Big Ideas) and the large flower paper (twelve x 12). My 3 embellishments are the flower and two heart gems.
My image is a Kanban Urban Belle. The papers are Brenda Pinnick - and I've used them to paper piece the image too. And I decided to make all three embellishments hearts!!
For my card I used a photographic image from a cd, backing papers from Papermania and K and Company and my embellishments were 1) ribbon bow, and 2) 2 stamped hearts. Finally, I used a sentiment stamped onto a nestie shape.
To meet the challenge this time I've used a favourite stamp from LotV, two papers from First Edition and my three embellishments are brads - one of which is a heart.
I have made this card for my Mom to give to her Mom (my granny) as it is her 80 Birthday.The image stamp is from Joanna Sheen,coloured with my ProMarkers. My 2 papers are from the First Edition "Dreamcatcher" stack and my 3 embellishments are ribbon and 2 small heart buttons
My recipe 123 is, 1 Paper Artsy stamp for my main image, 2 backing papers Kanban and 3 embellishments, ribbon, mesh behind the image and the heart on her head.
A lovely challenge ! I met the requirements by using 3 embellishments (including 1 heart as required) 2 DP's & 1 image, nice to have a limit on the amount of *stuff* we are able to put on our card.
