Evening all!

'stamps and wings'

Hi everyone, thanks for calling.

Today's card features a stamp from the Stamplorations set 'Big Bloom Factory' I used my Kaleidacolour 'riviera' ink pad, to stamp the 2 tone flowers, and was pleased how it turned out. The bird is from a set by Aladine 'Clear Oiseaux' stamped onto a snippet and edged with blueprint sketch di. I have followed the sketch for Stamplorations April challenge, and would also like to enter in the Things with wings linky party
Because I have used snippets, I will also enter this at Pixies Crafty Workshop and Allsorts where it is 'B for ..... ( I have blue, blooms, a bird and borders)

Hi everyone.

I have had this lovely wee stamp from CI for quite a while, and thought the bird singing was springlike!
I have embossed the background with my cuttlebug, and also used it to cut the stitched circle. I sponged both with peacock feather di. I also used copics to colour my image.
Challenges -
Penny Black and More - spring
Cuttlebugmania - a nice cuppa
7Kids Challenge - a/g

Thanks for looking and have a great week

Ginga cat!

Hi everyone!

Isn't this the cutest ginger cat? It looks a little more red on the screen than in real life.
I used some stamps from 'Kevin's Gang' and masked and stamped to show the other cats behind the main image. I blended some copics to make this ginger colour, added the greeting, and doodled around the edge with a fine black pen. Layered onto a black base card.

Challenges - Rubber Dance - black and white plus one other
                      Crafty Animals - using animals
                       Stempelsonne - anything goes

I will send this of to a cat-loving friend for her birthday

Take care and have a great week

Brown pale blue, and white

Hello everyone, I hope you are all enjoying your Easter break. We are expecting visitors shortly, so hope to get this post finished.
I have used the colours for this month's Rubber Dance challenge. My background was made with shaving cream and brusho's, I tore it across the bottom, and added my stamped image (in Adirondack Espresso), which I had also torn. The brown dots were done with Liquid Pearls dark chocolate, all layered onto a white base card.

a little birdie told me!

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well.

The present challenge at Paper Artsy is to use the colours blue and ochre, so this is my interpretation. I started my background using a mixture of DI's, but couldn't quite get the right colour, so I added some brusho's and Infusions, and spread the colours with a paint brush. I then embossed with a woodgrain folder.  .The bird is by Tim Holtz, coloured with copics, balloons are a punch, and the words are from a Diana Wakely scribbly birds set. I will add a birthday message to the inside when I decide who to send it to
Challenges -
Paper Artsy - blue and ochre
Creative Fingers - anything goes
The Artistic Stamper - backgrounds
Double D challenges - things that fly
