Floating away

Its Friday friends :)
I had my eldest home from school today with yet another virus. This winter we seem to have had our fair share of the germies being spread around at school.  It gave me a good chance to have a sit at my desk and colour while he played on the computer.

This sweetie is one of the new stamps from Magnolia's Boho Collection. I am not sure of her name as yet but I am sure we will see a pre-release sale come up very soon. 

I have masked her onto the "Flower Cloud" from the With Love 2013 collection.  The images are coloured with Copics and the background was sponged with Memento Sky ink.  Previously I was sponging my backgrounds with Distress Inks, but I found that it was smudging the Memento that I used to stamp the image, making the background all murky so I've moved across to Memento to do the background as well. Once upon a time I would have coloured the background with Copics as well, but I use so much expensive Copic ink doing so. Sponging is more economical.

The papers are Maja Design "Coffee in the Arbour". 
All of the embellishments are from the Ribbon Girl.

There are a few Doo Hickey dies used in the card too. 
I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of this gorgeous collection, if the stamp club is a teaser, we're in for some beautiful stamps. 

I hope you get a chance to do some craft this weekend! I have a few more stamps sitting on my desk which are calling for some attention.
Until next time, happy crafting xx

Ribbon Girl challenge - Add ribbons

Happy Sunday friends, 
It is time for the next Ribbon Girl card challenge and this week we're looking for RIBBONS!

I have quite a bit of fun Ribbon Girl loveliness on my card (30mm Shabby White Ruffled Ribbon, 16mm Ivory Pleated Satin Ribbon, Buttermilk Tiny Ric Rac, Lace Flower Applique Trim Antique White, Apples, Green, bunch of 3, Taupe Pretty Blooms Flowers)  all of which can be found in their faby store 

I have used two older Magnolia stamps from A Little Yummy collection of 2009 masked together. 

The image is coloured with Copics and the papers are Kaisercraft. 

I hope you get a chance to come and join in the fun at The Ribbon Girl challenge!
Until next time, happy crafting xx
