Floating away

Its Friday friends :)
I had my eldest home from school today with yet another virus. This winter we seem to have had our fair share of the germies being spread around at school.  It gave me a good chance to have a sit at my desk and colour while he played on the computer.


This sweetie is one of the new stamps from Magnolia's Boho Collection. I am not sure of her name as yet but I am sure we will see a pre-release sale come up very soon. 



I have masked her onto the "Flower Cloud" from the With Love 2013 collection.  The images are coloured with Copics and the background was sponged with Memento Sky ink.  Previously I was sponging my backgrounds with Distress Inks, but I found that it was smudging the Memento that I used to stamp the image, making the background all murky so I've moved across to Memento to do the background as well. Once upon a time I would have coloured the background with Copics as well, but I use so much expensive Copic ink doing so. Sponging is more economical.


The papers are Maja Design "Coffee in the Arbour". 
All of the embellishments are from the Ribbon Girl.



There are a few Doo Hickey dies used in the card too. 
I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of this gorgeous collection, if the stamp club is a teaser, we're in for some beautiful stamps. 

I hope you get a chance to do some craft this weekend! I have a few more stamps sitting on my desk which are calling for some attention.
Until next time, happy crafting xx

A piece of cake :)

Happy Sunday friends, 





I have used two older Magnolia stamps from A Little Yummy collection of 2009 masked together. 



The image is coloured with Copics and the papers are Kaisercraft. 

Until next time, happy crafting xx

All things grow better with love

What's this? A water coloured image? wow, yes it has been a little while since I did one of these. And I am waaaay out of practice. It was kind of fun though so expect to see me practicing a bit more :) 


The new Magnolia stamp club arrived in my mail box yesterday. The new stamps are so cute! I couldn't wait to ink up this little beauty.  I've masked her with a background stamp from Butterfly Dreams 2011, Stone Path, I thought the pretty flowers went well together.

The papers are new from Kaisercraft, Botanicals. I do love a lavender and green combo. 
All of the embellishments are from the Ribbon Girl.  


A little close up of my kind of rough painting..... lots of practice is needed.... so watch this space! 
I hope you enjoy the rest of your week xx
