Happy Mail

Here is the second offering of my new Tiddly Inks images. I`m a little bit in love with these stamps, they`re great fun to colour and gives me the chance to improve my hair colouring and pleat colouring skills, I hope I`ve done her justice.

This one is Happy Mail but I`ve left out the little mail box on this card that the image comes with.
I`ve coloured her with Distress Inks and Markers and added a couple of little bakers twine bows in her hair and boy! were they fiddly to tie! (I do like making work for myself!)

The sunflowers are a Die-Namics die that I won in a blog candy from the lovely and talented Tammie Edgerton, check out her lovely blog " One Happy Stamper" in my side bar. The sentiment is LOTV.
I`ve also used Tim Holtz - Memo pins, Memory Box Pippi and Isabella Butterflies available from Sir Stampalot. SU Ribbon Border Punch, Kaiser Kraft and Craft Creations papers and Hobby House flat back pearls.

I`d like to enter this into the latest Tiddly Inks Challenge which is "Celebrate"

We`ve had a change in the weather again here, back to good ol` British rain! so what better weather to get on with some more crafting! thanks for lookin in, bye for now xxx

Hang In There!

Hello, I`m back after a mini break from my blog, just been enjoying the lovely spring weather we`ve been having and getting some jobs done around the house. Now all the decorating and carpet laying is done and the new furniture is in, I can get back to some serious crafting. here is my first new card with a lovely Tiddly Inks stamp.

I`ve coloured her with Distress Inks and Markers and used a cloud template in the background. This is a very Clean and Simple card for me and my hands were itching to put some extra embelies on it! But I managed to keep it minimal for a change.
The background paper is Melissa Francis and I just managed to find some SU buttons in my crafty stash that were the same shade. The dotty border was done by hand with a fine black micron pen.

It`s lovely sunshine today so I`m going to take advantage of the natural light and get some more images coloured in. I`ve collected some new Tilda`s and Tiddly Inks stamps which I`ve yet to ink up so I`d best get on with it.

Thanks for looking in, bye for now xx
