Rainy Days

I love my Elzybells stamps!  I only wish I'd discovered them earlier and not when they were closing :(

The Elzybells stamp and sentiment where stamped using black tuxedo memento ink and coloured with promarkers.  The grey paper was from the papermill and has a lovely dappled effect.  The patterned paper is from DCWV Spring Stack (bargain at £3.95 from Hobbycraft last year!) and, though its not very clear, I've used some Star Dust stickles on the rain drops.

Personal Challenge

See this

This is the pile of 6x6 and 8x8 papers that have been clogging up my crafting space.

I've given away loads of sheets but, as you can see, have plenty left so have set myself the challenge of using them all up by the end of the year.

Well...thats the plan anyway.  I usually find it really hard to include a piece of patterned paper on my cards, so its definately going to be a challenge.

I'm making small progress though!

Another Fizzymoon, very similar to the last but slightly different (sentiment, pearls, colour, ect).  I have a feeling I will be making more like this over the next week or so simply because they are simple and look really nice.


Got round to posting this :)

I made this little guy a week past Friday (a last minute make for my mum) and jetted off on holiday on Saturday so didnt get a chance to show him off.

Fizzymoon is stamped in tuxedo black memento ink, coloured with Promarkers (that I'm finally getting the hang of!), and mounted on some lovely deep purple card.  The patterned paper is from an old papermania set that I still have thousands of sheets from and the sentiment is from the free set of Woodland Folk stamps that came with one of the DoCrafts magazines.  Circle/Scalloped circle was cut with my nesties and stuck on some foam pads.
