Three More ......

Wow three more cards done I think this is a record (well for me) first up we have a 'Hello' card, the stamp was free with a magazine and the sentiment is from a See Dee's set which I have embossed in silver. I coloured the image with Pro Markers and went to town with Tim Holtz's Old Paper Distressed ink and Broken China on the sentiment. The backing papers and die cut/ ribbon were some I had laying around in the stash.

For the next one I used Flower Soft's Moment's in Time- Grows With Love Stamp I coloured the image using Pro Markers and watercolour pencils. Once dry I applied some Flower Soft glue and used Flower Softs Ultra Fine - Sage to add some depth to the grass (not sure if you can see in the pic). Next I used Tim Holtz's Vintage Photo around the edge of the image.

(The Trimmer I bought is a god send as the different edgings cartridges make life much eaasier)

The back paper is from My Minds Eye Pretty Please Spring Papers. I then used the small tree stamp from the Kanban Autumn set and stamped one image in Versa ink baby blue and another in Versa ink Sandstone (bottom left I think you can just make it out on the pic) The final thing was to use the sentiment from the Kanban Spring Garden set.

and finally a Christmas card the ribbon was tucked away in a drawer, the backing paper is from Crafts House Paper Pack , Plum Pudding, the Woodware Christmas Pudding stamps are coloured using Pro Markers and I decided to use Tim Holtz distressed ink - Tea Dye as the white card seemed really bright and I thought it could do with toning down. The final thing was to add a Merry Christmas sentiment to the top of the card

Phew that was a lot for a Sunday morning I think I might reward myself with a trip outside for some fresh air.
