Last one for Today

Ok so here is my last card for the day. I really must get the kids school uniforms ironed for tomorrow.
This challenge was for Magnolia v Stampavie and it's a great sketch.

The BP's are hand made papers and i have hand stitched them to give them even more of a rustic feel. The image is coloured with my whisper pens and the sentiment is stamped using Brilliance Lightning Black. The flowers are part of one of my secret santa pressies and i do love them. This card definitely looks better in real life as you can see the textures of the papers much better than in the pic.

I would really love to play more with this challenge blog but at the moment i have very little magnolia only one stampavie stamp and no sarah kay. I keep drooling over these lovely stamps that i see in the challenges, I am going to have to save up so that i can buy some more, but being after christmas money is a bit tight so have been told to slow down on the craft spending so that we can manage to pay some bills lol. Oh well suppose the few that i have will get worn out lol

CPS 98

I love the sketch this week on CPS. So thought i would have a play. As valentines is not too far away, this seems to be the theme I am basing my cards.

BP is green mulberry that i have inked around the edges with red ink. The shapes are cut from from some lovely DP that I had sent to me in a RAK from one of my blogging friends. The stamped image is a PM stamp that i inked up with my whisper pens, spritzed then stamped. The fibres and velum sentiments are from two secret Santa gifts that i have received this year.

Penny Black Saturday challenge

Looks like i'm definitely getting back into my stride again.
The challenge on Penny Black is Embossing. And here is my take on the challenge.
I used my cuttlebug to emboss the background and this cute hedgehog stamp coloured with water colour pencils
