Its Raining Swalk

Hi my crafty chick's this week has gone so fast and the weekend to, I might add.
Do you get time's when you sit in front of your crafty space and you want to craft but the crafty juices don't seem to flow well I had one of those mornings.  I have on hand some images that I have coloured 
I had a look through my little stash of images and found a little Swalk image I coloured with when I first got my Copic's my colouring was not very good then lol, but I had just started playing any how I decided to make a card and am really happy how it turned out, funny how that goes
I coloured this image with copics very pale I was a bit scared as it was one of the first times I used my copics. The paper is from the new nitwit papers from lili of the valley
sorry if I am using them a lot but I love them soooo much 
I then used some older Marianne dies I havent used for ages to for the flowers and swirls. I also added some smaller flowers with some woodware punches 
The ribbon holder I made my self, The sentiment is from Whimsy stamps and then I used the die that goes with the stamps to cut them out to finish I added a little pearl to each flower

so there you go hope you like my little make today I think it is a really soft looking card.



Crystal pretty in green

HI folks I would like to show a card I made today using a fab image from 
Make it Crafty 
these are new images and they are fab

Isnt she fab her name is Crystal I coloured her with copics and I will add I think I have contaminated one of my skin colour copics think it might be my E11 so I will need to get a new nib it doesnt show on the legs in the pic very much but on the face it does as it didnt blend but just left a blotchy messg grrrr!! hope fully it doesnt show to much so to ruin the image but need to check if it is my E11 not sure how I did it i it is 
anyway I used a fab black hair colour with a tad of blue in it to give that Raven look 
The papers are from the new NitWit paper pads from Lili of the Valley 
the Dies are from Cherry Lynne 
the flowers are from Mulberry Crafts
the pin I made myself 
and the ribbon is from the range
The sentiment is a little box of letters the whole alphabet in a lovely little box they are
 from Natalie and Amys shop take a look
and are just 99p how fab is that and they come in different styles
The green pearls are from my stash but fit nicely into the Ribbon girl's Round spacers which are gorg and blingy
I stitched around my image with cream cotton

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges

Inspire me Fridays ... Anything goes
 Paper Crafting Journey ... Anything goes

LOTS OF LAYERS


Here is my card using the fab image from the last release called Pretty Petals by Stampart by Designs at Whimsy Stamps.
I coloured with copics then covered the petals and leaves with stickles for a love bling look 
Because our theme its lots of layers I didnt want it to be pattern heavy so went for embossing folders ans some pattern it sort of ended up mono to lol but hey I added an orange pin and gems to match the papers
I used a whimsy stamp, Stamp Sentiment there is also a die to go with the stamp which I have but I couldn't for the life of me find it but I will say it is fab
The die and stamp can be found on whimsy stamps the stamps is by Rainbow Echo designs ans the die is a whimsy shapeology die.
The embossing folders are swiss dots and tided together
the ribbon is from my stash
sorry the recipe for this card is not more descriptive but I have a really bad head and sore throat
