Hi Everyone

I hope you all had a good weekend and enjoyed the really hot weather.

Hope you like it.

Handbag & Shoes!

Hi Everyone

Here is a card for one of my colleagues.  She just loves shoes and handbags so when I saw this digital image I just had to have it!  I coloured it to closely resemble the colours of a leopard and was really pleased with the results.  I have to say Tracey was delighted with it, I am sure she was pleased with the Prosecco that accompanied it too!

Have a good weekend. Kx

Wedding Card

Hi Everyone

Hope you have had a good weekend and enjoyed the wonderful sunshine.

Today I am sharing a wedding card I made using a Lili of the Valley image which I coloured using copics.  I have used an embossing folder and several memory box and Marianne Creatable dies for this one.

I hope you like it. Kx

Lavinia Stamps Challenge 6 - Add some Beads or Gems

Hi Everyone

Another month over and another lucky winner in the Lavinia Stamps Challenge.  Well done Jannine, a very worthy winner. 

This month the Challenge is to Add some Beads or Gems and remember the lucky winner will receive £40 worth of Lavinia Stamps - a fantastic prize.  Pop along to the Lavinia Stamps Challenge Blog where you will see the Design Team inspiration and we will look forward to seeing your entries in the Challenge.

Here is my sample for this month:

I started by painting the mdf pen pot with acrylic paints, I used Americana D├ęcor Chalky Finish as they have some really lovely colours.  After drying I stamped using Distress Inks the lovely fairy "Giselle" as she is so detailed and looks really beautiful (on two sides) and Zen grass on the remaining two sides.  I coloured these in using acrylic paints and then added the gemstones to the bubbles Giselle is blowing and at the base of the pot.  I stamped mini leaves up both sides of Giselle and stamped Zen flowers 1, 2 and 3 onto some patterned paper and cut out to add to the pencils.  A gemstone into each centre and hey presto a pen pot complete with pencils. 
Hope you like my sample and you get lots of inspiration and join in the Challenge.  Good luck. Kx
