Today's card is all about travel, something that we now find difficult to do as the flights are so long from New Zealand.
The base is from a masterboard that I painted some time ago, and not sure what acrylics I used. The smaller stamped pieces are from a Recollections set called 'Going Places'
I handmade the tag from some kraft card and used a stamp that I bought in USA by Hampton Art, embossed with black filigree ep

Make It Pink

Hello and welcome to my blog

Today's card features a sentiment by Lawn fawn, the flower is an unknown brand, and if I remeber correctly the spots are from The Artistic Stamper.
I have used the following Promarkers
Pastel Pink R738
Dusky Rose R327
Antique Pink R346
I stamped and fussycut the flowers seperately and raised them with mounting tape

Hello and welcome to my blog
Todays card is a Lavinia image which I flipped to look the other way. Layered onto some pretty pink striped dp and then onto a pink card base. I stamped the sentiment down the side and added 3 pink sequins. Also coloured the wings and flowers with a pastel pink Promarker, and then coated with clear WOS, which does not show in the scan

B & W + 1

Hi everyone

The challenge at Allsorts this week is for black and white plus one. I have used a geometric background die in black and layered onto a white base card. My butterfly (from an old Martha Stewart set) is stamped in Mermaid Lagoon DI onto turquoise card and embossed with dye boss ep. I left some of the shapes in to give the butterfly some ground

Pretty Poppies

Hello and welcome

I have had this card sitting on my desk and I don't think I have blogged it yet. The stamp is from Stampin up and called Pleasant Poppies and I have separated this bunch from the rest. I have coloured with Promarkers, trimmed and layered onto black card and then a white card base. I have cut the 'happy' 3 times on my new Scan n cut and glued together, and stamped birthday in white detail EP

Sparkle and shine

Hello and Welcome.

Todays card is for the challenge at Southern Girls for Sparkle, shimmer and shine. I have tried to capture the sparkle with my photos but it is not easy. The unicorn's horn has a coating of gold sparkles, the flowers are a very shiny fabric, and I have added diamantes to the eyelashes. I hope you like my fun unicorn, and thanks for visiting
