Black & Red

Morning Everyone,

I thought i would share another card i have made using my Visible Image stamp called Clara. I love colouring her with different coloured hair as i think it brings the whole image to life. I have used my new dies's from Spellbinders called Nestabilities Floral Ovals & they are fab. I have added some dollies & distressed them with red ink to match the black & red theme. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley & the heart pins are from Pretty Little Ribbon Shop sadly they are closing down but pop over & see if you can grab a bargain.

I would like to enter this card in the June Visible Image Challenge - Visible image stamps have character.

Little Elphie

Good Morning,
What a busy weekend i have had mostly crafting trying to get ready for the weekends craft stall. Chris has made me some stands to put my cards on all i have to do is paint them & Mums been busy making various things so it's all go.
I have made today's card using a cute little image from Saturated Canary called Elphie, she is such a lovely image to colour & you can have so much fun with her. The flowers are from Wild Orchid & i have added some glitter glue to them to make them sparkle (camera doesn't pick it up sadly), the papers are from my Mum & the sentiment is one i wrote as i seem to always have problems finding a stamp to say what i want.

Inside & out

Evening to all in blog land,

I thought i would share this card that i finished last night, the image is from Lili of the valley & is called Spring Time Bear i do think this little fella is rather sweet. I have created the clouds in the background by using my ink dusters from inkylicious, I watched a video on how to do the clouds on Bev Rochesters blog at All things i Love & i think they have turned out great.
I have distressed the papers with Distressed ink & ruffed the edges with scissors to give it a more aged look. The papers are from my sweet owl paper pad that i bought from the Range & the butterfly is a Memory box die.
I have also for the first time decorated the inside of the card & i must say i do like it, it just seems to add a little something to it.
