Rich & Earthy

Hope you have all had a really great day.
We got a little bit of sunshine and a lot of rain! At least it does give you chance to craft.

I thought I would go a little more rustic than my previous card. I used Bo Bunny Timepiece Collection Papers and one of the matching embellishments.

I used a Krista Smith (Saturated Canary) digistamp 'Orchard'. She is so pretty had a great time colouring her in.

I used the following colours of Promarkers:
Hair - Cinnamon, Cocoa, Raw Sienna, Shale.
Skin - Blush, Dusky Pink
Apron - Apricot, Pumpkin, Ginger
Top - Marsh Green, Pear Green, Olive Green, Meadow Green
Skirts - Cardinal Red, Crimson, Burgundy

Last but not least a few flowers, some raffia and a rub on sentiment held by a Tim Holtz memo pin.

Have a nice night - see you soon.

Everything's All White.

What a lovely morning it is! The sun is shining and everything is well with the world.
I had an overwhelming urge to craft last night which wouldn't have been so bad but it was already midnight. I gave in and crafted to the early hours.
I bought some new digistamps yesterday from 'Saturated Canary' designed by Krista Smith and couldn't wait to use them.
Hope you like what I did.

The stamp is called 'Elphie' and she is just so delicate. I coloured her using my 'Promarkers':
Hair - Vanilla, Saffron & Apricot.
Eyes - Teal Green
Skin - Blush & Dusky Pink.
Clothes - Putty, Sunkissed Pink, Teal Green, Grey Green, Cool Grey 1 &2, Vanilla &Ivory
Broom - Cinnamon and Sandstone

I kept everything else really simple; white textured card, white lace ribbon, embossed frame, flowers and pearls and just a touch of 'pearl' Perfect Pearls to highlight the frame.

Thanks for taking a look.

Fairy Shimmer

I was having a little crafting session today in the sunshine and thought I would make a card. The ideas for the colours came from a Colour Throwdown Challenge. I really loved the combinations so I set too and this is what I came up with. Hope you like it.

I just love her she is one of the Lilli of the Valley stamps as if you couldn't guess. I used some Basic Grey papers and coloured her with my Promarkers.

  I then used stickles on her wings to give them that fairy shimmer.
