This next card is one I did for the Created by Hand challenge last week, but never got around to posting. The theme was stars and moon. I coloured the Inkadinkado owl stamp with chalks, then stamped the Quietfire Design sentiment with Versafine Black ink and clear embossed it. I cut the shapes with Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 4 dies, then I hand embroidered a star with metallic silver thread.

Shar Pei challenges
I created this next card to meet six different challenges: the sketch is from Our Creative Corner; the Created by Hand challenge is Asian; the Saturday Surprise challenge is pets; the Thursday Craft Challenge is to use tags; the gals over at Crazy Amigo have a "free" theme this week, , and over at Secret Crafters, we're instructed to use two designer papers, three buttons, and one ribbon. We share our home with a lovable Chinese Shar Pei named Li-Na, so I used this Shar Pei image as the focal point of my tag. It's actually a Canadian postage stamp. I scanned it, enlarged it, and cut it with the Spellbinders petite ovals die, which I then layered with gold mirror cardstock and black Bazzill. The two designer papers I used are from Creative Imaginations and Kodomo. The sentiment stamp is from Suzanne's beautiful hand calligraphy over at Quietfire Design, stamped with Versafine Brown ink and clear embossed. The Asian characters stamp is from All Night Media. I outlined several layers with gold and silver Krylon pens.
Thanks so much for taking the time to visit today!
