Hope you have all had a lovely weekend.  The weather here has been lovely, seems ages since I have been able to sit out in the sun, lets hope Spring is here to stay!

I have had fun making this plaque which I bought at Ally Pally last weekend, hope you like it too.

 I painted it with Kaiser Dusty Pink and Spearmint, just dapped it on with a sponge until I was happy with I next stamped it with the bubble stamp and embossed it with white embossing powder.  Around the edges of the words I rubbed some gilding wax.

Free Your Imagination!

Love these stamps from Visible Image!  This is a quick simple card to make but looks quite striking.  I started with an A5 rainbow coloured card stock which I stamped with the Large Tall Grass, i used Memento Tuxedo Black which I then clear embossed.  I did the same with the large and small butterfly stamps.  I then inked over the card using Adirondack Cloudy Blue for the top and Adirondack Meadow for the bottom half.  I used the sentiment from the Free Your Imagination stamp set and inked over this too to match  the rest of the card.  I mounted the stamped image onto some black card stock before mounting on to a nice green card by Hunkydory.  To finish off I stuck three black pearls to the top right hand side.

14 April

I had a lovely day at Ally Pally yesterday and made this card for the lovely Sue Wilson
who I really think is The Best and so Inspires me, so the sentiments on here are perfect!

For this card I have used the Art house stamps from the lovely Sam Poole.  I really love and admire her work and  I am trying to get more into this way of crafting, I have enjoyed using my melt pot for the textured 'bubbles' on the bottom corner, gilding wax for the background and gilding flakes for the border.

I had already put this card in a cello bag when I remembered I had forgotten to take a picture, so please excuse the photo. The sentiment on here is from Visible Image, they make lovely stamps and Helen and Mark are such a lovely couple who I have had the pleasure of meeting twice now, along with Cheremane.  The  roses stamp on the card are also made by them.
