Poppy's 13th Birthday

My beautiful daughter Poppy is going to be a teenager on 5th May. I just can't believe how quickly the past 13 years have gone. Poppy isn't into cute and so this image by Mo Manning is just perfect.

The designer paper is by Magnolia and the scull and hinges are Tim Holtz grungeboard which I have painted with pewter distress crackle paint.

I'm pleased with how this card has turned out and I just hope that Poppy likes it.

Thanks for looking

Hanglar Card

It's been a while since I last used my Hanglar stamps but I still love them so much. I'm really into vintage style at the moment I'm pleased with how this card has turned out. The papers are by K&Co and are just perfect for "men" cards. As usual I have used my Copic pens to colour the image, nesties and distress ink.

Thanks for looking

Ett Trykk April Challenge

Two cards in two days! My lovely friend May Britt bought me this beautiful stamp called Maribel by Stempelglede as a gift and I just couldn't wait to ink her up. I have used a shiny card and Archival ink to ensure a crisp image as the stamp is quite detailed.

The other stamp is a beautiful saying called "The beauty of friendship" by Hero Arts which I bought from Sirstampalot on Saturday whilst with May Britt on our big spending spree. The papers are K&Co, other bits & bobs are from my stash.

I am entering this card into this month challenge over at Ett Trykk magazine, use shades of green & beige and friendship is the focus.

Thanks for looking

Above is a card I made using the beautiful Magnolia Princess & frog, coloured using Copic markers, paper is a download.
