Wedding card

Hope you are having a wonderful day. Was asked to make a traditional wedding card and here is what I made. Stared by stamping the LOTV image and embossing it. It was then coloured with watercolours and cut out with a Memory Box die. I used two Sue Wilson dies (decorative frame and banner) and a Pinflair dies (flowers and leaves). The background was embossed with a  Tattered lace die. 
Have a great weekend.

Best Friends Forever card

This is a card using one of the images from Beccy's Place April release. It is from the Best Friends Forever set. You get the line drawings and the coloured image, along with sentiments. 

How I made this card. Firstly I printed the image onto white card and coloured it with alcohol markers. I cute the image with a Memory Box die and layered it onto pattern paper. The flowers were made with Pinflair Badger die and pattern paper. The other dies used are Tattered lace (leaves on vine) and Sue Wilson (ribbon). Can't remember who made the border die.

My first DT project for Beccy's Place

Hope you are having a good Saturday, I played my first 18 holes of golf (on foot) in 5 months today! I  sprained it over five months ago and finally it looks like it's getting better, so happy. 
Wanted to share my first card that was made as a member of Beccy's Place Design Team. This image and sentimen are from her new set called Lil' Monsters which you can find in here store
The image was printed onto textured cardstock and coloured with promarkers and then I used a graphite pencil to add shadows and watercolours for the base. The background was made with stencils and various metallic paints and then embossed. The blue strip was cut with a Dienamic die.
You can find this month's challenge HERE

Happy Easter to all.

Sympathy card with PSX stamp

Second post of the day. Was asked to make a sympathy card today and this is what I created. The background was made using various sprays and then embossed with a Sheena Douglas embossing folder. The applied brown ink over the top of the raised areas. I cut two Sue Wilson dies and cut then in half and placed them around the mounted main image. The corner dies were from Marianne designs. The main PSX Hydrangea image, was stamped onto plain white card and coloured with water colours. I don't like using mainly black and white for sympathy cards so I hope the person will like this one. 
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful day.

Wanted to share this card I made for a friend's birthday. I recently purchased the Woodware floral stamp which was on sale and really enjoyed colouring it. The butterfly stamp is a Hero Arts one and the background was embossed with a Crafter's Companion embossing folder. The images were coloured with watercolours.

Orange card

Treated myself to a craft magazine yesterday which had a set of Sheena Douglas stamps. They were crying out to be played with when I got home.  The background was made with liquid watercolours and the image stamped with Versafine ink. It's a really simple card but I really like it. Hope you have a great day.

for they share their food with the poor.

Pastel colours

Hope you are having a good week. I found this Sarah Kay stamp I had for years and decided it needed to be used. I used my new Sue Wilson dies, Spellbinders and Memory Box dies. The image was coloured with watercolours and the background floral stamp is one I had for many years.
