Garden Inspiration

Went to the lovely Hiller's Gardens in Romsey yesterday which provided some beautiful inspiration. Here are a couple of pictures from the visit. My favourite was this huge steel butterfly which is suspended over the pond.

Tuesday Taggers Challenge

The challenge over on Tuesday Taggers this week is Male - i.e card / artwork etc for the man in your life. Here is a Birthday Card I made for my father. It was done with a stamp and watercolour pencils.

Thursday, 27 May 2010

I have been playing with my new Henbury Lane Stamp set from Papermania.
I have been using the watercolour technique to add colour to the cards.
I am also excitedly waiting for the arrival of my new Creative Expressions stamp set, cosmic shimmers and big juicy ink pad. Time to put the credit card away I think!

D is for....Dragonfly

I thought I would have a go at the Alphabet Challenge this week which is D for Dragonfly. Although I was most disappointed that Ive lost my lovely inkadinkadoo stamp. This piece was made using alcohol inks, embossing powder and stitched paper.

Tuesday Taggers Birthday

As it is Tuesday Taggers first birthday, they have asked all followers to make a tag based on their favourite cake chocolate and cream. They also supplied a free image to use. Then each tag made will be swapped by snail mail.

Playing Around!

I thought I would try out some new techniques with the new Inkadinkadoo stamps I bought. I coloured the card with distress inks, stamped the text stamp from Crafty Individuals, then the dragonfly from the Inkadinkadoo collection. The wings of the dragonfly were coloured with Perfect Pearls.
