New school

I am planning to make several variations of this card over the next month or so and I have bought some lush Mo Manning stamps too..  Here is my first.  I adore the artwork of the fabulous Jade Dragonne – thank you Jade – and this digi is no exception.Image

She was coloured using Promarkers in the colours of my chldren’s school  and the result is perfect for a very excited little girl!

The gingham background isinspired by the inspiration below from http://theseinspiredchallenges.blogspot.co.uk/

http://qkrstampede.blogspot.co.uk/ – anything goes

Saturated Canary – Butterflies

Here is a card made with a Saturated Canary digistamp andand coloured with Promarkers.  Her hair is cool grey 1 and 3 and her skin is satin and blush.  Her dress is forest green, meadow green and apple.  The pre-embossed backing card is from Crafters’ Companion and the sentiment from Emma Cromwell @ Docrafts.  I love the final effect of the rosette behind the sentiment.  This is a Spellbinders tree with the trunk cut off.  The image and the 6 x 6 card are both mounted onto silver mirror card.

Creative Moments DT Post – Flowers

For the latest Creative Moments challenge, I have joined two sweet digis from Just Inklined.  The theme this fortnight is flowers.

The heart shapes were cut out using Sizzix dies from a selection of odd papers from my stash.  The ribbons were also scraps and 3 short lengths were tied into a bow using a bow-maker.  All papers were dusted around the edge with Tim Holtz Spun Sugar distressing ink.
