Proud Momma

Enter My Blog Candy Here.

Afternoon all! For those of you who have had a long bank holiday weekend hope it was a good one! I've popped on to show you a card I made over the weekend-it's a New baby Card and features the gorgeous stamp by Whimsy designed by Crissy Armstrong called Proud Momma. I coloured the image with my copics and also did a dotted background-great fun to do if you've got a bit of time to have an extra play!

I've used the gorgeous Prima papers 'Melody' stack and used te same papers for the little flowers I punched out. I added some pearls to the centres using the Viva Decor pearl Pen in Ice White (re-stock coming soon).

Oh Alice!

Don't forget to Enter My Blog Candy!

Good morning! Hope your week is off to a good start! Popped along to show you a make made with the gorgeous new Stamping Bella-Christy Croll image Alice (just been re-stocked too!). I really love her style of images so just had to have a play with this one! She has been coloured with copics.

I decided instead of going down the traditional route of turning her into quite a girly Alice I'd go a bit dark;) so out came the Graphic 45 Halloween in Wonderland papers (LOVE these!). I cut up the playing cards to make them into an embellishment which are the Graphic 45 Halloween in Wonderland pack.

I'm going to enter this into the following challenges: Make it Mondays (anything goes).

This card will be added to My Etsy Shop in this Section shortly.

That's it from me today! Rowena xx

A Gothic Wedding Card

Don't forget to Enter My Blog Candy!

Evening all! Hope a good weekend has been had by all! I had a lovely day yesterday at the seaside with Leo and my mum (pic below of me and Leo in the sand).

Anyways recently I discovered Cristy Croll and her fabulous images after seeing Elaine stocking some of her awesome Stamping Bella stamps. This though is a digi available here. Really love all things gothic (my house has an unusual amount of bats in it-not real ones obviously!) so these images are right up my street. I decided to make an easel card-I think I've probably only made 5 in my life but I love them so and they always look so special! I coloured the image in with my trusty copics!
I took inspiration from the challenge at Tiddly Inks in that I used lots of layers on my card so I am entering this there. I'm also entering this at Simon Says (sparkly and shiny), Truly Scrumptious (anything goes), A Spoonful of Sugar (anything goes), Paper Play (sparkle galore).

All the papers are DCWV La Creme-probably my fave ever set of theirs-it is so luxurious with all the flocking. I also used some awesome Make it Crafty swirls which I am now officially addicted to-soo versatile to use! I inked these and then added Viva Decor glitter on top.

This card will be added to my Etsy Shop shortly.

Think that's about it! Thank you for stopping by and for any comments you leave me-I love hearing from you! Ro xx

The Quixotic Paperie design team have once again joined forces with the SCACD design team for a blog hop to celebrate the release of the fantastic new NATURAL BEAUTY COLLECTION illustrated by Carmen Medlin. We hope you'll agree that these are images to fall in love with.

On to the hop!
If you have hopped on over here from ELAINE's BLOG then you are on the right track, if not then the first blog on the hop youneed to go back to Elaine's blog to start again!

For my make today I got to play with the utterly beautiful 'Sitting Pretty'. I decided I wanted to try and create a bit of a mystical scene so I had a little play with some vine stamps I've had forever and stamped in an olive ink and then added Sakura Stardust pen over the outlines to add a bit of extra definition. for the 'Sitting Pretty' image I used copics to colour-she is a total dream to colour in-I love all the details on her!

All the papers I've used are Basic Grey the new Hello Luscious collection. In my DT pack this month was also some of the fab Make It Crafty chipboard elements-I have the used the Filigree Jewels. They are so easy to use-I will definetly be stocking up on these! They're also so versatile to alter-I decided to just use some glitter on mine-specifically the Viva Decor in Holo-I think Viva Decor is the fastest drying glitter I have ever used-great if like me you have no patience for things drying!

I am going to enter this card at Cupcake Crafts (challenge is in the garden) and Diva's by Design (for the girls challenge) and also Simon Says Stamp (sparkle and shine).

Well that's it from me! This card will be available for purchase shortly in My Etsy Shop in this section.
