Easter Blessings

I stamped the Uniko Originally Organic flowers and coloured in with alcohol pens. I die-cut the cross out of the stamped panel and die-cut the cross a second time in fun foam, then mounted both onto the card with the fun-foam underneath the stamped piece.

Inspiration from the Uniko challenge (use some or all of the colours with optional twist of Easter).

Another butterfly card, this time inspired by the beautiful bright CAS Colours and Sketches colours.

This butterfly stamp is perfect for the ink and water mist technique and I've added some detail with black and white pens.

Butterfly shaker

Just slipping under the wire at CAS Mix Up (2nd birthday) with my third acetate creation and first ever shaker card.

The photo didn't work out too well as the artificial light was reflecting on the acetate and making the background look a bit fuzzy. So, anyhow, I stencilled a background using colour inspired by the Toppings (Teal and White) at Seize the Birthday.

Thank you for visiting my blog! Have a lovely weekend.

Alcohol ink on acetate panel, dry embossed rectangle, die-cut in copper metallic card, heat embossed sentiment in copper. I'm hoping to make one more card using acetate and a technique I haven't made before.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog!

The theme at CAS Christmas Challenge is 'Holly so thought I would do something different (the sentiment is heat embossed in silver, doesn't show up well in the photo).

I created the ombre background using a sparkle pen, brush and water.  Hopefully you can see the sparkle in this photo.

Poinsettia Christmas card

Inspired by the  Merry Monday photo.

I heat embossed in platinum, watercoloured and added gloss to the berries. It was the first day of Spring here in UK a couple of days ago, but with the 'Beast from the East' and Storm Emma etc it seems more like Christmas!
