Flip a Coin Challenge

First of all welcome to my new follower Pops
Whilst doing some commenting on blogs this after-noon I came across this challenge on Suze blog never heard of one like this and fancied having a go even a freebie image offered-it was a flip coin challenge at Beccy's Place.
I got Tails-not rectangle
Tails-monochrome
Tails-use a digi(freebie provided)
Heads-add a recycled element-cardboard packaging and garden string (cough cough) borrowed from hubbys shed
B.paper from The Works,dies from The Works and Spellbinders,corrugated cardboard and string see above and I distressed the edges with distress ink.Now the colouring is not the best probably due to the fact when I coloured it it was during a ranting strop sooo probably not the best time but the challenge only has two days to go so needs must!!!

Nail varnish and Pip Art

Morning the card I have to share today was inspired by the Nail Varnish technique at Back to Basics challenge-I have done this technique once before but not a success so thought I would give it another go.I used one background on this card and have quite a few ATC size for later.
The beautiful stamp was from Pip Art and coloured with promarkers and cut out and 3-D onto the background using 3-D foam pads the stamped sentiment was from Artisan Designs.Nothing else needed.
