so much for a lazy day lol..

right here is another card using the stamps from the soon to be released stamps and cd

from Crafters Companion 

i coloured him in with spectrum noir pens

i have used a white pen to re-establish the whites in his nose and chest and to give that  effect of fur catching the light

i cut out the oval from white centrua pearl card then ran it through a Darice wood grain embossing folder

good afternoon


hi everyone i thought i would share another

Jeremy Fisher stamped card with you all

i coloured him in this time with Spectrum noir  Pens

then added some distress inks around the edge with some cut glass glitter for some sparkle

i did go over the water with some glossy accents to give the wet feel but it’s not showing

matted on to core-dination and gold mirri the backing paper is printed onto centura pearl paper

this paper really caught my eye it has a distressed  crinkled metallic look

fab for your men’s cards as i have mentioned before

but with the colourizer  i dread to think how many choices you have at your finger tips

thank you for popping by

i distressed the edges then matted and layered onto mirri white card and contrasting core-dinations

the backing paper is from a scrap booking kit from nit wits
the lace is a stamp can you believe it!!! yes a stamp is from

here is my card for today
i coloured the stamp image in with spectrum noir pens then heat embossed around the edge in gold
gave it 2 coats of glossy accents to try and get that domed glass feel
i must admit i had to resist  touching it till it was well and truly bone dry… im a devil for touching things i know are still wet  lol
matted and layered onto white card gold mirri and dark brown core-dination card to make the inner frame
cut out the outer frame with dies in gold mirri card
then used peel offs around the edge of the 8”x8”card blank

little ballerina in black

good afternoon everyone
well i should have been sorting out my craft room i did  go in there and found this little image
just waiting to be coloured in !!
which i did with Spectrum noir pens from Crafters Companion 
on the stamp it will have a basket to the side but i didn’t want that so rubbed it off
if you used a cotton bud to take off the ink from your stamp carefully  it shouldn’t  transfer the bits you don’t want
i have remembered to make a colour list if you would like to try her
im assuming you got your order in lol and are stalking the postie for there arrival.
I thought i would share her before i added the cut glass glitter to her dress
Colour list i used
Dress…IG4…IG7…IG10…with a tiny touch of black in darkest parts
thank you for popping by
