Quick Post

I have made a little wall hanging from a coaster. The background is painted with Fresco Nougat and the dabbed with picket fence stain. I stamped the words on a scrap of card and cut them out and edged with walnut stain DI. The flourish is an old stamp (unknown brand) and the little butterfly is coloured orange and then gone over with Wink of Stella pen. I have then added glass fragments to the edge.

Top Bloke!

Today's card features a cute golfer from one of the Sullivan's sets. I have coloured him with a mixture of Promarkers and Copics.
The golf ball and the message are from the same set
I layered them onto a piece of dp from my snippets box and I sponged the edges with walnut ink DI

I am back again

....after a long absence - life got in the way of my crafting time.
This card uses up some scraps from my 'snippets' box. The strip was an experiment with 2 colours of paint and 'smooshing' 2 pieces of card together. I rather like the effect it gives. The flower image is stamped twice, with the main flower trimmed and layered to give a 3d effect. I have used copics and promarkers to colour it.

I am slowly getting back into cardmaking again, and had a little play this afternoon.
I cut a circle card, and applied some DP to the front. I then layered a band across, added a diecut flourish, a felt flower with a tiny button, and stamped the birthday message in a toning colour. Both DP's and the card for the flourish were from my snippets box

I have been away on holiday, so my blog has been very neglected!
For this card I used a damask style dp on the background, and a piece of brown dp, which I embossed and rubbed with Treasure Gold. I cut the Eiffel tower on my Cameo, and also added a snippet left over from my "Bonjour" pad.

Birds on a wire

I was having a tidy up in my stamp drawers and came across this one which I haven't used for some time.  I needed to make a birthday card, so found a snippet of the jade paper in my scrap box, used a piece of it for the layering, and stamped on the remaining piece for the vertical strip. I have used a peel-off for the message which I coloured with a black Sharpie

Today's card uses a lovely Kaiser image that I bought recently, and this is the first time I have used it. I stamped with Memento 'Tuxedo Black' onto DP from "One Moment in Time' I have sponged the edges with DI walnut stain, and used copics for the colouring. The lamps are highlighted with 'Wink of Stella' pen The bow is made from a muslin bandage, and the flower has been re-assembled with a brad added.
