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 like-minded 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! 

Some inspiration from our DT

Kimx
I used the fabulous stamp set from Hobby Art for my card as well as some handmade background paper created using inks and the Creative Pallete. 

Viv
A CAS card from me for this challenge!

Josephine

I've used some Sizzix dies and a technique I spotted recently of insetting the die cuts into the background. More details on my blog. 

Vania

I created a background with a clarity stencil and dylusions. I also used Dylusions on the Chocolate Baroque stamped butterfly.

Sympathy Bugs by Wee Stamps, coloured with Copics.

I used Sheena Douglas, MFT and Indigo Blue stamps to create my dragonfly card; the background was created with Distress Inks and Perfect Pearls.

Jackie
My card this time is monochrome black and and white with a stamped and zendoodled butterfly which was covered with microbeads.  I used a tonic die for the "doily" and a Martha Stewart punch for the paper ribbon.
