CAS and sky blue

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well.
Today's card was an experiment - stamp and emboss with white detail ep, and then colour. I used copics and [romarkers to shade the leaves and flowers. This is a stamp that I won from Holley's blog, I do not know the brand.
I will enter in the following challenges
Stamplorations CAS and sky blue

Celebrating a birthday

Hi everyone.
I am back with a card I made after a little shopping spree.I purchased the EF and the stamp set on sale in a local chain store, both are by Ultimate Crafts
After I had embossed the blue card, I highlighted the design by swiping it with Brilliance Pearlescent blue. I also trimmed the flowers from the top so that I could layer it over some pretty dp. I stamped the birdcage in Brillance Lightning Black and fussy cut it. The bird is stamped in black Memento, and shaded a little with Copics. I added an organza ribbon across the embossed piece, and shock! horror! I added a peeloff!
I would like to enter in the challenge at Scrap and Craft for Celebrations,  Noor Design for Spring, And Penny Black and More for anything goes with stamping

Take care and have a great week

I have been playing with my Infusions this afternoon. What a fun product!
The background was made a while ago, using a paint medium and a brush to spread the colours. Istamped the flowers etc from my Jofy set, and then mixed the colours with an acrylic paint medium so that I could paint the flowers.
colours used:-
emerald isle (leaves and grass)
are you cerise (some of the flowers) then added blackcurrant to the mix (for some of the circles)
then added violet storms to the mix for the darkest part of the flowers. I added atouch of Wink of Stella in gold to highlight parts of the flowers.   I will enter this at Paper Artsy.and also Craft Stamper


I have done some recycling with this card by cutting out the butterfly, and tearing the stamped words at the bottom. With the addition of some washi tape to form an edge, and adhering to a mint coloured card, I have given it a whole new look.

I would like to enter the Butterfly challenge
and also a second entry for Stamping Sensations

Thanks for visiting, and have a great week

Hi! I'm back!

Hi everyone. I am back after a couple of weeks away in our motorhome.
A very warm welcome to my new followers as well.
The challenge at Rubberdance this month is to use these 3 colours.
I had fun making a background using Brushos, turquoise and lemon. I stamped the flowers (from Stamplorations), embossed with white detail ep, and swished over with some magenta paint, and then wiped it back a wee bit with a baby wipe. The leaves are from a die, which I have forgotten the name, and the stamp is also unnamed. 
challenges - 
The Artistic Stamper - Springtime
Stamping Sensations - close to nature
Simon Says Monday - make your own background
Pixies Crafty Workshop- I used snippets for my flowers

Have a great week, and thanks for visiting

Good morning everyone.
I had a little play this morning and made a tag. The background was 'smooched' with 3 shades of DI.
The little sketchy bird was stamped,both on the tag, and a snippet of pink card. I added some extra colouring with my Promarkers. The branch is by Memory Box, and I coloured it grey with a copic marker. The words are by Rubberdance.
Rubberdance - pink, green, and grey
Stamping Sensations - animal magic
Stamplorations - Cas with hot pink
