Elizabeth Bennett

This beautiful image is a stamp by Indigo Blu. I have stamped onto a pearlescent card, and coloured lightly with my promarkers. The edges are sponged with DI antique linen. The image is so beautiful, it does not need any embellishments.

another one for the 'c' box

The challenge at Crafty Hazelnuts this week is to use music. I have used my CI stamp to pop some portions of music on to the background along with my TH snowflakes stamp. I cut a wee scallop circle and layered on the cute little snowmen topper, then added the sentiment and sponged the edge with red.
I will also pop this into
Pixie's Playground as I used a snippet to make the circle.
And add it to Crafty hazelnuts Christmas Extra for October

Black and white

A very simple card from me today. I have stamped the message and embossed with white detail EP
I used my cuttlebug to die cut the corner flourish - (madera corner from Memory Box), and also the two flower shapes. The white one was left over from a previous card, and I used another scrap to die cut the patterned piece. I finished off the centre with a white candi
I would like to enter the challenge at Cuttlebug Mania, for black and white,  and also at Pixie's Playground, because I raided my snippets box!

Paper Artsy #2

Another card following the very talented Joanne Wardle on the Paper Artsy blog.
I have had to substitute as I did not have some of the correct ingredients, but the finished card has a very similar effect.
I used texture gel, acrylic paint, dylusion spray, metallic rub, and Hero Arts 'old french writing' stamp

Paper Artsy Challenge

I am following the challenge this week at
Paper Artsy.
The guest is Joanne Wardle, and I find her ideas very inspiring. I have tried to follow the instructions for the first day, but do not have any leaf dies - so used this flower instead. I am quite pleased with the result, it looks better IRL!

A lazy week

There has not been much happening in my craft room this week, as we have had a visitor.
This card idea was taken from a cardmaking magazine, and I have used snippets down the left side and edged with a dotty piece. The compass was from the kit which came with the mag.
I have just got time to slip this one into
Pixie's  playground - (the compass may come in handy!!)
