I’ve left the design quite plain as the bp is quite busy,the image is in front of a nestie shape which I’ve coloured with Distress inks, which are another favourite of mine come to think of it lol, and I did an easel card for a change as I hadn’t done one before,P1010651

Items Used;

Just for fun,

I have had a brayer for more years than I like to think and have always said I’d get round to having a go, and yesterday was that day, so for a first attempt I’m quite pleased with it, actually it was a lot of fun and will definitely do something else,P1010515-1 Items Used,

Various dye ink’s

Magnolia stamp,

Tree stamp, Do crafts Duo,

With Love stamp~Freebie with magazine

White Inkssentials pen

I began by doing the top of the card with a multi ink pad as it was the only one I had it’s left slight marks as they where in individual strips of colour, having said that it makes it a little interesting( well that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it) then I did the bottom colour by turning the paper and rolled across,I then stamped on the tree and highlighted with the pen, used a small star stamp and inked with a silver pad randomly over the top half and added a small moon from a set of polar bear stamps I’ve a while,

I coloured my Magnolia image with copics and then cut them out (very hard near their skates) and glued it down, then coloured in the hearts on the sentiment stamp to match her trims,

I’ve got a horrible tooth ache today from a partially erupted wisdom tooth, so I’m on antibiotics Hope they start to work soon,

Still In The Mood

As I’m still in the mood for doing Christmas cards,which for me is unbelievable as I usually do them at the last minute! I thought I’d do Nat’s lovely sketch over on Penny Black,P1010504-1

Stickles and Glamour Dust,

Snowflake brad,

Various Background Papers from stash,

Anita’s Ribbon from stash,

The snowflake should really be a brad that I’ve had in my stash for ages, so instead I put some polofilament  through it and hung it from behind the ribbon as a mock charm,

Anyway going for my lunch now as I’m starving,

Thanks for looking, Hugs Liz xx

Pink,grey and a hint of black

I'm having one of those day's today when everything is hard work, you know those days, I stamped the tag, cut it out, made a hole then discovered I'd only a bright pink eyelet, then I added some black thread and just as I was sticking it too the card it came undone at the last minute so you'll have to imagine some lovely black thread in there as I tried to put some in and the tag just want's to rip, so it can RIP and I'll leave it alone lol, Items used magnolia stamps copics eyelets Pink paper from craft show ages ago Pink acetate Black papermania adhesive pearl Sorry for the blurry picture, yet another thing going wrong today lol, Hugs Liz x
