colourful cat!

Hello and welcome

Today's card features a fabulous cat and sentiment from the 'Puddy Cat' set by Dylusions.
I stamped it onto the card and then stamped the cat again on a scrap of Neenah solar white card
I have used the following Promarkers for colouring
Cardinal Red
Summer Sun

I also sponged the edge of the base card with Mustard Seed distress ink

Hi and welcome

My second use of this delightful cowboy from Art Impressions. No action wobble this time, as the ones I have are too big, however his legs still move around!
I used some dp to cut a hill for him to stand on, and coloured with copics and promarkers

So Cute!


Today's card is a commission for a family with a new baby. The mother has had Chihuahuas for some time and they were previously her 'babies', so the card had to include them all
I found some suitable images and assembled in a pram cut from some spotty blue paper from my scrap box, and also found some spotty buttons in my stash for the wheels.
Apparently they loved it

One Layer

Good morning crafty friends.
A bit cool and showery here today!

Today's card features one of the first stamps I bought, called Birds on a wire
I stamped it directly onto my inked background, masking, so that I could colour one bird in red
The sentiment was also printed directly from my computer, and I finished by stamping the 2 corners

Hello everyone

Today's card features 2 very old stamps, but I thought the went well together. I stamped the cake onto a snippet from my scrap box, and embossed with silver ep. I then used my stitched oblong die to cut it to size. The candles are coloured with Sakura silver sparkle pen, and I finished off with 3 purple gems to match.

 welcome back!

 today's card is my interpretation of instructions  I saw on how to make a panel background from Gina K
I used a woodgrain embossing folder and swiped  di ink pads down and added more colour with a sponge.
The image was rescued from my scrap box, and I am not sure where it came from. 
I layered it on dark green to match my base card and then added a sentiment on a flag to finish
