Its a beautiful day...

Good Morning Crafty Friends,

Rick and I are off to Morecombe to the Steampunk show!

Looking forward to catching up with Mike and Ian.

Toni (Stamps by me) will be on Create and Craft on Wednesday at 1.00 pm and 5.00 pm with a new range of silhouette stamps and dies.

Here are a couple more of my samples.


For this card I created a soft background using distress ink broken china and evergreen bough.
Stamped the silhouettes with distress oxides in wilted violet, peacock feathers and worn lipstick.
The sun is fossilised amber, the sentiment and birds have been stamped using archival ink.


The background for this card has been created by using distress oxides, cracked pistachio, wilted violet and spiced marmalade onto watercolour card, I then spritzed some water for the mottled effect.
Stamped the wild flowers and sentiment with Archival ink.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
