Good morning all.its a horrid day today, lashing it down with rain so i`m hoping it stops before its time for work.already got soaked once taking my son to school.
today i have a card to share with you using one of the stamps sue has in stock from the crafts and me range.
this one is bookworm fairy by hannah lynn.

Hello all.I hope you are all well.My son has gone back to school today so mormal routines can
Today i have a card to share with you using the violet angel stamp from the crafts and me range of stamps.this one is by the designer jasmine beckett-griffith.
I must admit that i am going to find this one hard to part with, i was really pleased how the card came together.
so here she is:
 gorgeous isn`t she and i really had a blast colouring her in.

 a tip when colouring in folds.once you have built up your colouring layers, do`t be afraid to add a little black.i use the black flexmarker as its a little wetter and then blend it out with your darkest blue, mine was indigo.
another tip use a white gel pen in the folds.apply in little dots and quickly blend out with your finger to really highlight the folds.

and a sideways view.
thanks for popping by, for a full list of products and promarkers/flexmarkers used please see my personal blog.

hello all.sorry its been a while since my last post but a certain person is off school so he is keeping me on my have you been to see sue yet cos she has another new range of stamps in from the company INKYLICIOUS.
they are beautiful stamps, they will suit all sorts of different occasions.
i have made this little card using the following inkylicious stamps:
scatter seeds which i overstamped over the image mat
fleur de pavot which is the poppies and this also has other stamps in the set
sentiments 1 for the sentiment - this set has 17 sentiments in total
these stamps are clear so great for people like me, really easy to see where you are stamping and no extra expense of having to buy foam mount.they are really cheap too but great quality.
so on to my quick card:
 i have used go create oval and scallop oval dies for the shape
some fab artist brushstroke white card to stamp the poppies and then i watercoloured them with distress inks and used glosssy accents over the 1 poppy.overstamped with the scatter seeds sentiment

 a view of the card in full.this does not need to be supported and stands up by the middle image oval resting on the sentiment.

 a view of the top need to make the main base of your easel with a good heavy card.i have used some of sues pearl card which is a really good weight.
