Sitting Windy Tilda

Hi all, I've been playing again.
The new Sakura stamps. This is "Sitting Windy Tilda" and she is sitting on the ''Magnolia Branch" from the Sweet Rainbow collection of 2011. 


The images are coloured with Copics. 


The flowers and lace are from the Ribbon Girls


Well, that is it from me today.  I hope to get back to my craft desk later this week, I have a nasty cold at the moment so I have been taking it easy. Fingers crossed!

A Lazy start to the weekend

Have you received your stamp club in the mail yet? Ohh... mine arrived this week and they are adorable. This is Lazy Tilda.  The collection is called "Sakura" and there are so many adorable stamps, the ones in the club are just the beginning.  There are several in this collection that might have to come and join my collection at some point :)


I've used a few goodies from the Ribbon Girl:  Cheesecloth, Liquid pearls, cotton lace, flat back gems, roses
The papers are MME from an older release. I love the aqua and yellow together, so fresh. 

Lazy Tilda has been colouored with Copics. I've used a few Doo Hickey Dies and Spellbinders to assemble my card.

The gorgeous dragonflies are from Make It Crafty and I've just added some pretty aqua acrylic paint to brighten them up.


Its looking a bit like a dreary day today so I might have to head back to my desk to do some more colouring :D  What have you planned for the weekend?

Ribbon Girl - May card challenge - Mother/female

Hello friends!
There is a new challenge at Ribbon Girl today! This week we're looking for "Mother/female" cards.
It is Mothers Day next Sunday so I took the chance to make a Mother's Day card. 


The gorgeous tea cup is an old Magnolia stamp from "Little Yummy" 2009 collection. They're one of my favourite accessory stamps. I've stamped them onto different patterned papers, shaded the edges with Copics for definition and added some gold liquid pearls.

I've used  Blooms tiny vintage cream, cream tiny ric rac, 32mm Clementine Ivory Embroidered Tulle Lace, Ivory Self Adhesive Pearls, all from the Ribbon Girl

The papers are very old Basic Grey "Wisteria". I have two sheets left from my paper pad. I've been coveting these papers since I bought them about six years ago, they're just gorgeous. 
The card base is cut using a Spellbinders die set and cream AC cardstock and eddged using Tea Stain DI.


I hope you get a chance to enter the challenge this week!
The prizes are of course fantastic, 



I have a couple of new projects sitting on my desk awaiting completion, I hope to finish some off to share soon. 
Fingers crossed!
