Fancy Chick!

Hi! Here's a card I made for my lovely friend, who keeps chickens! It's a digistamp, printed out and smooshed into inks, then layered onto the card. I added silvery white detail with a white gel pen, then a clear star gel pen over the top.

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.

I Love You-nicorn

Hiya

Ok, I admit it. I am a bit obsessed with this unicorn image. So I decided to make a Valentines card with it. I'm not entirely sure the sentiment works, but I still like it!

The unicorns are coloured with smooshed inks again, and I used a Wink of Stella pen and a gelly roll pen to add the shimmer and sparkle.

Unicorn Obsession...

Hiya! Here's another unicorn card, made for one of my closet friends. I used the same unicorn image as in my last card, but made a more CAS version of the card. I coloured the unicorn by smooshing inks onto acetate and squishing the image into the inks. When dry, I cut the unicorn out and layered him onto the card. I used a Wink of Stella pen and a Gelly Roll clear star pen to colour the mane, wings and tail. The sentiment is a bit silly, but when drunk my friend and I have often referred to each other as 'bestest' friends, so the made-up word 'fabulouser' seemed apt!

First card in ages... Sparkly Unicorn!

Hiya. Here's a card I made for a friend's birthday. I masked the unicorn, then used ink dusters to colour the background. I coloured the unicorn with a gold Wink of Stella pen and a Clear Star gelly roll pen. I used Lavinia stamps to add the flowers, and added Nuvo drops for the flower centres. I added the gelly roll pen to the word 'Magical', to give it some extra sparkle.

First Bag of 2019! A bag for my Mum in Law

Hi! I finished this bag yesterday morning. I should've made it weeks ago, but I was nervous about adding the recessed zip - it's a magnetic snap in the pattern. Also, my Mum in law bought the fabric, and I wasn't sure where to get more if I made a mistake! But anyway, it's finished now, and I am so happy! I love how it has turned out. I'll be handing it over tomorrow, so I really hope she'll be pleased with it!
