The postie brought me this super cute stamp from Pink Gem yesterday and I just couldn't resist using it straight away! Hubby went out 'to drink mucky beer' last night, as our eldest says, so I had a lovely peaceful colouring session and made 2 cards.
I was going for a bit of a vintage look for the first card, but probably ruined that with all the glitter! I coloured the image with promarkers and then added some shading with koh-i-noor pencils blended with sansador. Added lots of glamour dust for sparkle. The paper is from my lovely new paper pad by GCD Studio - hubby was with me when I bought it, and he nearly keeled over with shock at the price lol, but I couldn't resist! The snowflakes were cut with my new (oh dear, so naughty!) MS punch that I bought from Little Claire. Plain circle cut with nesties, scalloped circle cut with a Go-Kreate die. Added some card candy, pearl dots with a viva pen (I'm going to stop using it, I'm totally useless with it...) and a computer generated sentiment.
I went for a more modern look with my second card. Image coloured with promarkers and koh-i-noors again, with glamour dust. The paper is from another new pad (hangs head in shame), this one is Let It Snow by Dovecraft I think, again bought from Little Claire, as was the tag die, which is from this set. MS snowflake punch as before, card candy, computer generated sentiment and a button from my stash. Added some stickles dots around the scallops, another mistake I think! This one is for an order, but I've just loosely attached the sentiments on each card so that I can swap them if my customer prefers the other one, or in case she wants them both.
I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
I'm Lisa, and I live in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, with my husband Pav and our 2 boys Morgan (13) and Dexter (8yrs). We also had another son, Harvey, who sadly was stillborn in Feb 2007. I've always lived in Sheffield, but my husband is from Poland.
I'm completely obsessed with cardmaking - I think I even dream cards!
