Yummy new stamps!


Here's my first card made with one of my new Sugar Nellie 'Simply Sassy' stamps from set 2... they're fab to colour, love them!  I have another one ready for tomorrow too :o)

I've coloured 'bella bunting' with promarkers, and added some shading and glow using koh-i-noor pencils blended with sansador.  I did the hair with pencils as I'm never happy with my hair colouring... thought I'd try it with pencils.  The papers are Making Memories, with coredinations cardstock.  Added some x-cut punched flowers, with pink pearl centres.

I've had a very productive day today... some cards and colouring done, stew in the slow cooker, decorated a top for Morgan to wear tomorrow - it's Children in Need and they have to go in something spotty... sounds simple but they just don't make anything spotty for boys, it's all stripes!  So I used a plain white t-shirt, added dots of fabric glue and covered them in different coloured glitter... result isn't perfect but I'm quite pleased with myself anyway lol.  I'll try and get a pic of him wearing it tomorrow :o)

Hoping to do a bit of blog visiting now... sorry if I've missed anyone out lately, I'm a bit busy but I'll catch up eventually!

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
