Framed Robin 1

When I made the "Cutest Trio" card, I stamped a second set of robins, and coloured them the same way.

Here is the first of my framed robin series ...

I've just received my first pot of Altenew white embossing paste and had to try it out.  I love it.  So smooth! So white!

Winter Flowers

Are you ready for a new challenge?

CASology starts a new one today! The cue word is FOG.

This certainly was a challenge for me.  But then the brain fog eased and I remembered that Simon Says Stamp has FOG cardstock.  Then I thought of vellum ... it has a foggy look, doesn't it?!

So here's my card. I coloured parts of the leaves and petals with Copics.

I wonder where this challenge will take you?

Come drift on over and check on the creations of the design team and be inspired. Looking forward to seeing your take on the cue word.

Happy Thoughts

I keep forgetting to use stencils - but I still buy them!

So here's the lovely NBUS Uniko Wonky Stripes stencil paired with Altenew's Handpicked Bouquet in 2 colour combinations.

First with a traditional pink.  Love the flow of this flower.

Added some paint splatters.

My second colour combo is a soft lavender. This time I did doodle dots which are more subtle and controllable!!

Bright Rainbow flowers

Inspired both by Angelica and the CAS(e) This Sketch.

I chose bright colours and used the different silhouette flowers in my stash. Added matching sequins along the way.

I loved the soft delicate feel to Leah's card but I didn't have her stamps.  Worked with what I have in my stash.

A close-up of the embossed background.  Love the subtle look.

Warm Thanks

Some warm colours for some warm thanks.

Added some enamel accents ... can't decide if I prefer it with or without.

Special Wishes

Sometimes you need to send extra special wishes!

I have one friend who loves the warm colours of orange and pink.

And another who is more into greens and blues!

Cutest Trio!

I think this trio will be a firm favourite ... even in the years to come!

I'm loving colouring with my Prismacolor pencils with gamsol!

[Sorry, I had to repost this as I deleted the original by mistake]

It's my last post as guest designer for Just Us Girls for the month of September.  Thank you so much for having me - I've had so much fun.

The challenge this week is a photo inspiration.

I used up some of my inked papers from when I have leftover distress ink on my craft mat.  

I picked one with yellow to red tones. I stamped my sunflower using Versafine Clair Fallen Leaves. I then used to water and a tissue to take away some of the colour from the petals and leaves. I added more Mustard Seed Distress Ink to the petals.

I added highlights with a white gel pen.
