Good morning everyone, thank goodness it's the weekend! I am trying to catch up with uploading the cards that I have made over the last few weeks. If only we could have a few more hours in each day!
Anyway onto the card. This is a card I made using another Pure innocence stamp by MFT. I really do love these stamps and they are great for using your Pro markers or copics to colour in. The design papers I used are from Basic Grey and the collection is called "Kissing booth."
I used my sewing machine to stitch the papers. I also paper pieced the little girls dress. The sentiment stamp is also from MFT but I can't remember what the set is called. Below is a view of the inside of the card. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you like the card.

Owl note book

Here is a little note book that I have made using my Cinch Binding tool. It is only a small book, it is 13cm square, a perfect size to carry in your bag. The papers I used are from My minds eye. The owl has been made with circle punches, except for his beak which I just cut with a pair of scissors.
The leaves were stamped with a stamp by Hampton arts and are stamped with Versafine Spanish Moss.

Here is a closer look. Hope you like it. Have a great weekend and I will be back soon to post a couple of cards that I have made this week.

You're one of a kind....

Hi Everyone and happy Thursday! it's nearly the weekend thank goodness and also the kids break up for half term and we all know what that means....Lie ins!!! lol and boy do I need a few. Anyway back to the card. This is a card I made using a Pure innocence stamp by MFT. The papers that I used are from Basic Grey and the collection is called Kissing Booth. They are really pretty papers and are mostly Browns and pinks. I used Pro Markers to colour the image and then paper pieced her dress with some of the design paper to match the card.

I love colouring with Pro markers and copics but sometimes it's nice to use something a little different to get a different effect. Something I use for a different effect sometimes is Distress ink re-inkers. These give a lovely watercolour effect and you can make your image as subtle or as bold as you want simply by adding less or more water to your ink. Here is an image I have been colouring today. She is not finished yet, but I thought I would show you my work in progress. Plus I am still deciding what colour to do her dress and shoes. Here's a close up. Well I will be back to show you the finished image tomorrow. Why not give it a try yourself. Thanks for stopping by
