A new adventure and I would love you all to join me :D

This is so exciting I have some cards to show you for a few challenges and they are all made with the stunning art work by the amazing Ching-cou Kuik (the lady whose art has been wowing us in stamp version thanks to Sweet pea stamps). I have been lucky enough that she has asked me to license her art for decoupage and topper sheets and oh my gosh they work so well! I hope that my cards give you an idea but they really do look so much more effective in real life. If you want to get your hands on them please hop to my new blog shop The Crafty Purple Frog they are just £2 each and as they are digi you can use them again and again.
Right now on to the cards......

For this first one I have used the Jewelled Mermaid decoupage sheet this is a bit fiddly to cut out but I love how 3d it looks when all layered up and I think it is worth the little bit of effort. I have added a couple of gems one to her top and another to her hair so she sparkles that little bit more. The paper is from artylicious damask delights disc and the sentiment is from Designers extreme vol II
This card is for the following challenges:
Polly Craft Challenge Blog - Sparkly Things
One Stop - Let it shine


This card is the first one I made I just love this image she is so pretty and so different from so many other images out there. She is called The Glance and again I have used the decoupage sheet. The paper is from crafters companion and the rub was free with a magazine while ago.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Flutter by wednesday - they have an open challenge this week they just want to see a fairy or buterfly on your creation
Sketch and stash - I have used their lovely sketch


This card is a bit different as I have used one of the toppers rather than a decoupage image. This image is called red is my passion and I think it looks so effective in black and white. I have just used card stock and embossed the white strip with a swiss dot cuttle bug folder to give some texture.
This card is for
Creative Craft Crew - going dotty
Quixotic Paperie Challenge Blog - Monochromatic



This last card is for a huge amount of challenges as I think she looks very spring like with these colours again I have used the "Red is my passion" image but this time the decoupage version. The paper is from funky hands funky daze disc. and the sentiment was from the same magazine freebie set as the one on the "The glance" card.
This card is for the following challenges:
Get Funky - Girls girls girls
Allsorts - Spring is in the air
Crazy 4 challenges - Spring
Simon says - spring with glimmer
Crafty cardmakers - Spring into spring
Secret crafter Spring has sprung
C.R.A.F.T. - Spring
Crafty catz - Spring
Charisma Cardz - Spring has sprung
