smiles, little owl

Smiles, little owl

Argh, road work outside our flat, hammering and drilling, so noisy, I couldn't get any sleep.  So I got up and made some cards, this is one of them.




The inspiration is from this month's Runway Inspired Challenge, here is the picture. 





Also here at Less is more blog, this month challenge is to use turquois, and I'll submit my cards to these two challenges.



So here's all for today, they've stopped the work, but have woken my baby up, I must go and comfort him.  Night night.

Some simple colouring with Hero Arts stamp

Hello! Just posting a card here using a bird stamp from Inkadinkado and some gorgeous flower stamp from Hero Arts.  I coloured the flowers with Spectrum Noir markers, they are the same as Copic markers, alcohol based, very easy to blend.  It's the first time I tried to colour on kraft, it's a bit dark than I expected.

Catered crop this week's challenge is to 'put a bird on it', so I'll submit my card to this challenge.

Good times

Hello!

Here are two cards (extremely similar) I made last night using Clearly Besotted March release stamp set 'Good Times' and it's coordinating dies.  Super easy and fun. I just LOVE the bicycle, too cute.



I thought I could colour the butterflies with different markers, but it didn't work and I stained my stamp terribly. Lesson learnt -- DO NOT colour your stamps with copic or spectrum noir markers.

Anyway, have a good day!

Bee happy

Hello!

Here is my second card made for Clearly Besotted this month's challenge


 

But seriously, a grey bee?!  Excuse my poor colouring skill.

For the sentiment, I used Clearly besotted 'Good Times' stamp set but with a twist. And can you spot the 'Geometric Doily Die'?  I also used their ' Honeycomb Die' for the background.

Anyway, all the products I used are listed below the post apart from the patterned paper which is the retired ' Stampin'up ' paper, they are discontinued, and the bee stamp, I got it from Ebay, don't know the name of the set.

That's all for today.

Get well card

Hello!  Today I'm posting a card that I made a while back, I actually made four.  So many friends of mine are a bit under the weather at the moment, so I made these cards to send to them to cheer them up.
 
Here is a closer look.  I used glossy accent on the rain drops, so they look 'wet', it's really cool.




The cute little umbrella stamp is from Clearly Besotted, I just LOVE it.  You can check all the list below my post.

Here I'd like to thank Vicky for inventing such a cool website to link all the products with the websites, so it's easier for everyone to just click and shop.  She also has a giveaway at the moment, the prize is great, and she's very generous.

Good luck everyone!
