A little bit vintage

This is my second post today, so I am catching up a little!

I have used my brand new stamp that I won from Serendipity, and stamped it on a 'mop-up' piece of card from my previous post. I coloured the bike purple, and cut it out with my wonky stitches die. I attached a pretty piece of lace to the base card, and attached the bike on top. The flowers were a pale green, so I tinted them olive with a copic marker and glued pearls to the centres.

Penny Black and More - use something new


Hi everyone, I hope you are all well.

Today's card features one of the birds from the Stampers Anonymous 'bird crazy' set.
I made my background using 2 colours of Brusho's on watercolour paper. The HB2U was then printed from my pc. I used my Misti to stamp the bird, and stamped another on a scrap paper. On the second bird I reversed the colours, and glued it over the first image. The little parcel is a peel-off and I coloured just the ribbon with a sparkly blue pen. The whole piece was then attached to a black card base.

The challenge at Paper Artsy this month is ATC's, small pieces of art measuring 2.5 x 3.5 inches.
I chose to use pieces of an A4 background that I had made with Brusho's, stamping and doodling. I thought the colours were quite peaceful. I printed the quote on my computer, then smudged some blue/purple ink pad using a baby wipe to take the brightness from it. The butterflies are cut from velum (a spellbinders die) and then embossed in my cuttlebug, then adhered over a piece of white feather.

Hi everyone, I hope you are all ready for a new year of crafting!
This one is my first for 2018.
I have printed off this image for the first time from a set I won from Charmed Cards and Craft 4 years ago!!!!
I used the following Promarkers - B318,  B336,  Y337,  O837,  O727,  O345,  Y524,  R555,  and blender
I used a Stamplorations die to cut out the rectangle, added a strip of DP down the left side, then mounted all on kraft card after adding a little string tie

pretty flowers

Hi everyone.
First of all I would like to wish you all a healthy and happy Christmas, and thank you for your lovely comments throughout the year.

My card today is a favourite stamp from Stampin Up and I have coloured it with Promarkers and Copics using the theme from the Rubberdance Challenge - rose, light blue, peach, and glitter. I blended the rose and peach to colour the flowers, and layered onto pale blue card which I coloured with chalk pastels. The glitter comes from Wink of Stella, which is on the flowers, but doesn't show very well in the scan, and also the 3 diamantes.

AAAcards - sparkle
Southern Girls - all that glitters
