Croms - that's me

What did I make with the image?
2 cards. Using 2 of the different folds that have been featured in the card making group in The Village.
The first is a simple stair step fold

Image coloured with promarkers. Bottom strip is from a 6x6 paper docrafts masculine pack. Middle is striped vellum with peel off sentiment.
Back is a scrap of brayered paper from a previous card made, covered with webby "ribbon". MS punched "scary fence" threaded behind the image.

The second - a flap card

Trust me to make it more complicated than it really is by cutting a hole out.
The star cut from the main body was matted onto silver to form the "attachment"

The hole is covered with acetate then more from the docrafts masculine paperstack

The image coloured with watercoloured pencils and matted onto pearlised brown. DAD lettering from stash.

Blog candy was promised, wasn't it. Well to get mine (4 Liquid Pearls, 4 Stickles, and some "general" embellishments) I'm going to make it easy. I'll do a random drawing from the names that leave me a comment here and under my profile in The Village.
The different Dymonz will have different rules, so you have to look on their blogs.

So get hopping and have fun.

In the meantime there are 1 or 2 challenges I am entering into
