Simply Betty Stamps Birthday Challenges!

Today I apologise but I have loads of photos to show you! 
Simply Betty Stamps are having a month long birthday celebration and have posted several challenges which I plan on entering today right at the end of the month before they finish! So, each card I've made, has a SBS digi stamp on it, coloured mainly with promarkers with lots of added extras depending on the theme of the challenge.

June 16th Challenge - a Smart @rse Card! Something sassy, nothing sweet! I have used Emo Lola and although she seems sweet with her 'have a nice day...' she makes it sassy with a 'somewhere else!' I've used papers from the DCWV Rockstar Matt Stack, ribbon, paper roses, card candi and bling. 

June 8th - Something for Love or out of this world. I've gone with Emo Lola again in blacks and reds with mulberry paper, more flowers and ribbon and roses, and Valentine sentiment on top of heart embossed black card.

June 9th - Glitz up your grunge. I've used the Lavinia Framed digi with pearlescent paints and added lavender and platinum stickles to the girl. There's lilac diamantes around the frame, star dust stickles around the bottom of the frame and on the mulberry paper roses. Some lilac lace and feathers and some free damask papers from Pixel Scrapper which have been distressed around the edges and inked with Dusky Concord distress inks.

June 15th - Rock n Roll. - This is Emo Lola again with more of the DCWV Rockstar papers, a printed sentiment and EK Success punched border. I've kept this simple with just some black and purple liquid pearl accents.

June 18th - Anything Goes with any Emo. This is a tag I've made with EmoLola. I've coloured her with purple hair and a red and black emo/goth outfit. So, the tag is purple, red and black with black soot distress ink around the edges. This is finished with some bling and rolled roses with star dust stickles.

June 20th - Favourite Technique. Well, here is Belladonna on a wall hanging with rolled roses! As you will have noticed from the other creations on this page I love making rolled paper roses! They are so simple and effective and I love that I can have them to match anything that I make by using the same papers. I use a Marianne Creatables Chinese Rose die to curl spirals and then roll with my pokey tool using Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic glue to keep them from unrolling. Here I've adhered them to a wall hanging - another of my favourite things just now!

Well, that's a lot from me today, might go back to bed now!!!
Thanks for looking
