New stamp!

Hi! I bought this stamp a couple of weeks ago, and this is my first attempt at using it. I think I need some more practice! But I love the affect. I used my stamping tool, and inked up the leaves first, stamped the image, and then inked the petals with purple and stamped again. Then I added the blue, and stamped again. I spritzed before stamping each colour.

Funky Flowers

Hi! Here are a couple of Mother's Day cards I made, using my new Lili of the Valley flowers! I love these images :)

I coloured the flowers with inks. For the first card, I layered up the middle panel to add a bit of dimension, and added a little gem. For the second card, I added white dots with a white gelly roll pen, and some glitter with a Clear Star gelly roll pen.

Cuddle Monster

Hiya! Here are some more valentines cards I made - I tried to do something a bit different from the usual hearts and flowers, and went for … monsters!

I smooshed inks onto acetate and then squished the monster image into the ink. When dry, I cut it out and layered it onto the card. Then I added sparkly horns with a gelly roll pen, and coloured the eyes and fangs with a white gelly roll pen.
