'Pom Pom'

Hi this is a card i did on a workshop on Saturday, i love these LOTV stamps, they are so cute. Went to PortSunlight recently to the Stamp Festival and bought quite a few more stamps by LOTV, bought the new circle sentiments but haven't used them yet.

I must be on a roll now, here is another 2 card i designed for one of our classes, I used an Inkadinkadoo stamp for the first card, and coloured it with Distress inks. I applied the colours to a plastic pallete and then picked them up with a waterbrush pen.

The second card was done with the Woodware Poppy stamp. I have only used part of the image and cut it into six pieces then pieced it back together again leaving small gaps inbetween. I coloured the poppy with Promarkers. The stamp behind the poppy is a Hero Arts stamp 'Manuscript Background'.

Hello, it's been a long time since i have put anything on my blog. I think its the taking of the pictures that put me off, they never seem to look right, or i never seem to take them at the right time when the light is best, so i end up doing nothing. These next two cards i have made for examples for my local craft shop. They are from 'Wild Rose Studio', and i have coloured them with Promarkers. I had a go the other day of using pencils to colour in my images, and then using Sansador, but i didnt have much sucess, i shall have to keep on practicing. Hope you like my new cards, will try and post more often.
