Rudolf Day for March

Here I am last minute with two cards for March Rudolf day, so just in time for another Rudolf day over at Scrappy Mo's.
 Both were made using Inkylicious stamps, ink dusters and distress and memento inks - DI weathered wood and Memento London fog on the first, and Memento Nautical blue on the second.
I also used a gelly roll sparkle pen and a spectrum noir clear sparkle pen on the snow and moon, but you can't really see it here.
Lets hope we don't see lots of the white stuff this weekend! Things to do and people to see!
Do pop over to Mo's blog to see the beautiful inspiration and join in the Rudolf fun if you can!
They were both made using snippets as well, so I'm off to Miss Di's snippet playground with them too!

Dora's Digis for March

Carrying on with the African theme I have been playing with my ink dusters to create a background for Dora's fabulous Elephant that you can find here. The background stamps are all from Inkylicious and the inks are Izinks. I coloured the elephant with alcohol based markers.
I also made a card with one of the squirrels which you can also find on the realistic animals page. It was a sunny morning for once so the base of the easel card is a bit too washed out in the photo.
I'm hoping it got to it's destination on time.
Here is a photo of our resident squirrel during the recent snow

Thanks for looking and for all your lovely comments.

African Animals

With all this cold weather around I decided to escape to Africa on my craft table and here are the results 😀
All stamps from Inkylicious except the birthday sentiment on the first card. I used Izinks on the first card and I am impressed! They seem really good.The zebra was heat embossed with black sparkle embossing powder, so it is more blingy than it looks on here!
Hope you are keeping warm and snow doesn't spoil your plans! Sorry it is short and sweet. Work is keeping me super busy at the moment

March at Stamping Sensations

Good morning, It's time for a new challenge at Stamping Sensations and this month we are looking for
********Woodland Friends********
As the title suggest we would love to see your creations featuring any creatures that live in the woods. It could be mammals, birds, insects or invertebrates!
My first Card this month was made with Lavinia stamps. I created the background with inkylicious ink dusters and distress inks.
My second Card was one I made as a commission for Creative Stamping Magazine. More details can be found in Issue 51 (along with the stamps I used)

Please can we remind you we are a stamping challenge so must see a stamped image as the focal element of your artwork, not just a stamped sentiment or stamping in the background, this means:
Stamping must be the central point of attention and interest 
Our sponsors this month are Tattered Lace and they have donated this lovely prize!
Do pop over to the challenge blog and take a look at the gorgeous designs from all my talented teamies! They really have made some outstanding cards this month! 
Thanks for looking!
