I used lotv pompom fairy coloured with markers,die cut the labels sorry dont know which one,did it at craft club,used some papers which came free with mag last month, stamped and heat embossed with white detail powder some vellum, used an old anita's stamp, embossed some pink cordinations with butterfly folder and sanded back tore both edges, added a marianne butterfly and a xcut butterfly punch, then punched a strip of the brown paper with my one and only martha stewart punch. I have never used so many layers on a card think there are 8 in the middle, it was going to be a very pale pink and sparkly card but got side tracked thanks for looking angxx

peaches and cream

hi there thanks for looking
This card is so far out of my comfort zone. Lily of the valley challenge to use peaches and cream, well I looked and sorted and looked again and found a very poor amount of stuff. I found some peach dl cards, some paper, joanna sheen which actually has peaches on, the netty ribbon stuff had to wet and cover with clear embossing powder to try and keep the fibres together, some buttons, black gems and a doiley I used  wild honey distress ink to try and pull it all together and a black gel pen around the edges used white first but did not like it.
Thats it I am peached out, no more peach cards for me lol unless I buy more stuff.

krafty card

hi there thanks for visiting
I am being good at the mo and trying to use up some things, printed some polka doodles papers last week, and rather than they get all scrumbled thought I would use them on another card really like the pink spotted one, mixed it up with some free nitwit papers and some pink centura pearl crafters companion. I stamped the image on to kraft card the stamp is olivers orchard from buzz craft, colourd with water pencils as I could not get the pro markers to show up, used a metal heart and some rafia had for years. I followed the sketch form sketch saturday
