Belated...............

Again........

Hi there..........despite trying to be more organised!!! I seemed to have failed miserably........

Here is a card I made for a dear friend.........luckily she likes it even though it was really late.......so sorry......



My gorgeous girlie is 'Mela'  coloured in with Spectrums.

I made the background using DIs and then over-stamped. I just added my little flowers and some gems. And of course, what must be one of my most used sentiment stamp!

Thanks for looking...

Enjoying Water Colour and........

Magnolia stamps again :).......

Morning....

Just recently I have rediscovered my love of water colour pencils and also some neglected Magnolia stamps.......

I needed to make a couple of really quick cards, so decided on a one layer approach.........a bit scary for me!


For this one I have used 'Summer Flower Tilda'  Love her :)......


This is the first Tilda stamp I bought and still a favourite! She is 'Angel of the Year 2008'

Both images have been coloured with Derwent Inktense pencils.....one of my new found favourite ways of colouring! Not just on water colour card either......I have coloured straight onto my 'ordinary' card blanks....

Thanks for looking...

By the skin of my....

Teeth!

Hi there......I'm a bit late with my Craft Barn Challenge....don't know where the weeks have gone.....

The words this time were....

DESTINY & GIFT.......

I went with Gift for my Tag....

                             

Luckily for me I already had the painty bit of the background done!! A 'mop up' from one of my Journal pages :)  I just added some paint splats and stamping and embossing..

Don't you just love this 'couple'?? :) Stampotique of course! They are 'Oliver'  and 'Minky Girl'    Coloured in with Spectrums. With my excellent (not!!) photography skills you can't see what's on the metal tag....it says 'KISS'.........appropriate I thought......

Thanks for looking..

One, two, three.....

Owl!!!

Hi there....

I am taking part in an online class with the lovely and very talented Kate Crane............

It's called Journal Soup 2 and is available here.....

I've not had chance to look at all the videos, but I really wanted to have a go at the Owl........I can't draw for toffee! Dear Bry is the artist....but I had a go and am really chuffed with how they turned out....




I created a background with my Dylusions sprays in one of my large Journals and then over stamped....

I then added my 'dancing owls' :)  For some reason I have quite a few Alpha stamps, but not so many numbers........I found a Unity stamp that had the numbers all together and chopped into it........this is testament to the quality of these stamps that even after all that they stamped really well......The Owl word is a letter stencil that I drew through. ...

I am really pleased with my 'stars'.........these are a brad that I have had for ages dipped into gold paint and then outlined when dry..

Thank you Kate, I am loving the class......

Thank you for looking...........

My lovely Stampotique girlie is 'Perl'  coloured with Spectrums .....The background of my Tag is created with DIs and over stamped.
