Mother's Day

It won't be long till it's mother's day so I thought I would get a head start, this is the first one,
using  Manolia stamp that I coloured using water colour pencils and a brush for a change, Then
I used some crystal lacquer to make the hearts shiny, It is only a 6x6 card but it looks cute.

Something different

 This is out of my comfort zone but I like the way it turned out, a journal cover.I used some flowers
and little wooden bugs, a bumble bee and dragon fly. also found a small frame. I made the covers
from card stuck the bits on including some lace then covered them in tissue using lots of glue,
Then I left it to dry before covering it in black acrylic paint. Left that to dry then I used some
metallic lustre .

Anything goes

This card is made using a magnolia stamp and some flowers I made from paper using
some dies and colouring them with Tim Holtz distress inks.

I have entered this in /http://abitmoretimetocraft.blogspot.fr/

Dt member

OMG I have been accepted as a Dt member for Oh La La Creations,so excited and nervous at the same time, watch this space to see what I have to create.

Valentine tag.

 Thought I would have a go at a Valentine tag, this is how it started thinking of using a magnolia stamp on there to.
 Decided not to use the stamp, using distress ink I added some crackle look and hearts with stencils to the back ground.
 nearly there just adding my hand made flowers , lace hearts and a ticket I found in my stash.
I am quiet pleased with how it turned out.
This is the view from my patio window (in the summer time) , I live right next to our carp lake, the view outside today looks a lot different it's freezing, roll on summer so I have a good excuse to sit indoors and craft. It has been 6 years in April that we have lived here in France and it doesn't get much better although I do miss my family and friends.

pop out card

This little 6x6 valentine card is made using Nitwit fuzzies collection.that I downloaded from their site and used a pop out template, a little fiddly but fun to make.
Here are some tags I made for a friend, usingsome Crafters Companion stamps that I hand coloured using pro markers and then added some punched holly leaves and snow flakes.

Latest album
