A couple of cards and another sneaky peek

I'm here with a couple of cards that won't be on the Inkylicious show on Sunday. First there is a card that was inspired by one that I saw at Inkylicious last Saturday. The 'skeleton leaves' are such beautiful stamps and I am really enjoying playing with them. I had forgotten how much I love my Kaleidacolor ink pads, especially creole spice which I used here. The sentiment is from another recent stamp set called 'Say it with Flowers'.
My second card is made using the 'Say it with flowers' stamp set for the main image and one of the new twinchie stamps from Inkylicious, for the background. So far the twinchies have only been available at shows like Ally Pally, so look out for them at the next show you go to. I stamped the main image onto silk art card and coloured it with Distress markers. The punched flowers were made with an e-k success punch. As this fits perfectly with Brenda's theme of 'A passion for flowers' at Allsorts this week, I am entering it there.
I am going to show you another sneaky peek of one of my cards that will be on TV on Sunday at 5pm (hope you will be watching/ recording it!)
I used distress markers to colour this on inkylicious silk art card again, and they work a treat! No streaking like you get with promarkers sometimes. Not sure if you can tell from this, but if you like vintage and floral I think you will love the stamps Deby will be demoing. Go on, set the recorder now - Create and Craft, Sunday at 5pm!
Well, thanks for looking, and I will be back soon with more tantalising sneaky peeks!

I can see you are really having fun with your new stamps Sally and two gorgeous makes. The skeleton leaves do make a fabulous background, especially love them in those colours.

Thanks so much for joining my 'Passion for Flowers' theme at Allsorts this week.

Oh that first one is just terrific with the different colours of those skeelteon leaves & the way you've echoed the ink colours in your central panel with the negative stamped image.
the background stamping in the second is what caught my eye & I love the way you stamped the sentiment over the top in a toning colour. The little punched flowers are gorgeous embellishments - especially with your yellow centres echoing those in the stamped image.

These are gorgeous Sally. I love the colours on the first one. I have that inkpad (and several others) and had completely forgotten about them. Thanks for the reminder. Your colouring on the second one is beautiful. You've got on really well with those markers. I didn't have anywhere near that kind of finish ............ must need a lot more practice, lol!

Your skeleton leaves are really beautiful, Sally. I love those colours. I only have one kaleidacolour pad but don't use it enough!!
The pink flowers are lovely too.
I'm really looking forward to seeing your creations on C&C.
