Butterflies from Dora

Here is my DT project for Dora this month. Our theme was bright colours and butterflies. My card was made with digis drawn by Dora, which you can find on her blog here. I printed them onto super smooth paper and coloured with alcohol markers. I then cut them out and attached them to a box frame painted with chalk effect inks. Not sure what I will put in the frame yet, but I did enjoy making something other than a card. Thanks for looking!

Rudolf Day for May

 Hi there! It is  time for another Rudolf Days Challenge over at Scrappy Mo's. This month I have been playing with a lovely little set of foliage stamps from Uniko called Natures Treasures to make some single layer cards. The stamps are an absolute bargain at just £5 for the set. I started by putting a strip of masking tape across each card and then sponged Distress ink in Bundled sage. I stamped the foliage in distress ink and Versafine clair before taking off the masking tape, adding a sentiment and dotting with liquid pearls and glitter glue.
 Here is a photo of them both together.
Thanks for looking and I hope your Bank Holiday weekend is full of everything you love xxx

Mid month inspiration for May Stamping Sensations

Here is my mid month inspiration for Stamping Sensations where the theme is 'In an English Country Garden'. I stamped the Hobby Art Bee in versafine and the Inkylicious flower in memento Desert Sand and coloured with Zig real brush markers. The leaves were stamped onto the flower panel in the spaces using memento new sprout. I stamped the Hobby Art splatter stamp randomly over all the elements before sponging a little Wild Honey distress ink around the edges. The sentiment and honeycomb stamps are also from Hobby Art.

Woodware Flowers

 This woodware flower has been in my stamp collection for several years and I have used it in a variety of ways over that time, but mainly as an embellishment. I love the fact that it is so easy to cut out, as are the leaves (also Woodware). I decided stamp several and to colour them brightly with my Zig markers on watercolour paper and give them a black background.
I added some liquid pearls, glitter glue and white posca pen to finish them off. Hope you like them. They will be used for birthday cards in the next month or two - there are quite a few coming up.
I am entering these into the Challenge at Penny Black and More where the theme is All Things Feminine
Thanks for looking!
