Been in a card making mood today. Image is from SweetPea Stamps. I have used watercolour pencils this time and lots of bling and of course some glitter. The dies are from Marianne Designs and the sentiment is from stamps from my local closeout store.
The weather has been gorgeous. Sunny days the nights are still a bit cool, but that just means no air con for a while yet. We celebrated my youngest daughters birthday last week. It is a bit of a shock to the system when you realise your baby is now 20, where did those years go, I asked her if she felt 20 she said " I still feel 12"
I won some digis a while back from Sassy Studio Designs and decided to use this image called Pina Colada for her birthday card.
I love the work from Mitzi Sato-Wiuff. I found her adult colouring book and was hooked. Her art is just fabulous and very challenging specially for beginners like me. I chose this Butterfly to colour for a challenge. Used my ProMarkers and my Gelly Roll pens to colour.
It hasn't been easy getting back into routine after my fabulous trip to the UK. The only card making I have done is loads of thank you cards for our family and friends who so kindly put us up in the UK. I won't bore you with all of them. Each one is different, yes I know it would be so much more practical to make them all the same lol, but I find that far to boring. I dusted off some stamps and got to work. I must just add while going through my stamps I found so many butterfly stamps wow, do I really need so many ha ha. Here is the first card, yes you guessed it, with a butterfly. This stamp is really old, I bought it when I first started stamping about 20 years ago. I used my Spectrum Noir pens, tho after starting with them I regret not using the ProMarkers as the SN ones were quite dry.
The next one is a stamp from PSX (discontinued) the beautiful Humming Bird stamp. On this card I used loads of glitter and a paper self adhesive ribbon.
The last one for today I have stamped with white ink and embossed with fine white detail embossing powder. I then sponged some pale ink all over the stamped images to make them pop and added a Pink ribbon and some gems.
