Smooth Seas card

It's been a while since I just got a piece of white card and experimented. The background was done using various inks and paints with different stencils. Once the paints and inks were dried, the words and anchor stamps were added. The main image and sentiment (Beccy Muir's Smooth Seas stamp set) were stamped and coloured with coloursoft pencils and alcohol markers. The anchor and crab were die cut and coloured with Pebeo gilding wax in two colours.

Thing it's safe to share this baby card I made recently. The background was made using Panpastels and baby stamps. The main image was stamped and coloured with inktense pencils. The little ladybugs were stamped onto the baby grow and coloured with pencils. There are several dies used for the layers and words.

Smooth Seas

Time to introduce another new stamp set from Beccy Muir. This set of photopolymer stamps is called 'Smooth Seas' and is a great set of images and sentiments. 
You can purchase the 'Smooth Seas' stamp set from Beccy's Shop and find more inspiration on how to use them on Beccy's Place blog

My project using the 'Smooth Seas' stamp set is a ceramic heart hanger. The ceramic heart was  unglazed so stamping was very easy. Stamped the seagull image first and then stamped the verse. The image was coloured with alcohol markers and once I was happy with the colours I sprayed it with Crafters Companion spray and sparkle. Unfortunately you can't really see who well the sparkle works over the image.  This is a great set for anyone who likes the sea and sailing.

Valentines card

It's snowing here for it's nice and sunny where you are. This is a Valentines card I made this week. It is hand drawn and coloured with watercolours and added the fun eyes. It's really simple but I think it works. 

For those who were wondering how Skipper was doing. She is doing really well but I don't want to say that too loud. lol She is not limping anymore and much more alert. 

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and Happy Valentines day to all.💗

True Beauty

Introducing another one of Beccy Muir's digital image sets. This set is called 'True Beauty' and comes with one this beautiful image and several lovely sentiments. As always the set contains the black and white image and coloured image as well. You can find this set and many others in Beccy's Shop and lots of inspiration on Beccy's Place blog.

Every year I make calendars for my family and friends. This year I used this wonderful image from Beccy Muir's 'True Beauty' digital set for one of the front covers. The image was printed onto white card and coloured with pencils and glitter pens. Looks much better in real life.
The background was made by embossing a aqua card with leaf embossing folder. The light brown card was embossed with the same folder and die cut. The feathers were die cut from a sheet of paper coloured with Brush crystal. The numbers and sentiment were cut with dies as well. 
The colours do blend much better in real life.

Thank for visiting.

 Back from the vet again.

Hope you are having a good weekend. Our pets put us through the ringers don't they. Well last week Skipper was sick every day and in the end had to have IV fluids at the vets for 24 hours. Got her back last Friday evening and she was doing much better all week. Then yesterday a beautiful warm sunny day, she was in a cat right with the cat below. We have no idea where he comes from. He is a very big male cat. Skipper's Daddy rescued her, not before she got injured. Once again we had to go the the out of hours vet. She got an antibiotic shot and had a good look over. She is still limping a little but fingers crossed will be back to her usual self soon. She is keep us on toes !!! :) 

Hope the next week will be a quiet one for all of us. :)

With all my heart!

This is a wonderful set of photopolymer stamps called 'With All My Heart'. You will love this set of stamps by Beccy Muir. They are really good size stamps and the sentiments you will use over and over again. You will not regret this purchase so have a look at Beccy's Shop. You will find more inspiration on Beccy's Place Blog. They really don't take that long to reach the UK when posted.

I made this card using the 'With all my heart' stamp set. The cream background was done by passing a piece of cream glimmer card through a rose folder. The coloured layer was done with Brush Crystals and then embossed with the same rose folder as the background. Used a brown ink pad to highlight the embossing. The large rose image was stamped and coloured with Derwent Inktense pencils. I used a light gray marker to edge the image. Then loaded a brush with paint and splattered over the image. 
Hope you like the card and thank you for visiting.

Happy Sunday.
 I have been doing lots of crafting but nothing I can share as yet. Thought it would be nice to show you that Skipper is doing well and even went out in the sunshine yesterday. It was very cold and stayed frosty all day but she did enjoy a few minutes of sunshine.

Got a new colouring book and I really like it. This is one of the pages I just completed. I used Coloursoft pencils and Inktense pencils as well on the butterfly. Love the quality of the paper in this book (Sacred Nature by Lydia Hess), such a pleasure to work with. 
Have a great week.
