Heartfelt Love

Afternoon lovelies, hope you are all ok and looking forward to the weekend 🙂 
I wanted to share my latest card with you today. I have used Tiddly Inks Wryn – Heartfelt love and coloured her using just my Ice Grey Spectrum Noirs with a tiny bit of red. 
What do you think…
I have had this idea for a while after looking through the Tutorial over on the Spectrum Noir blog and knew this would be the perfect image for it. I wanted to keep the rest of the card nice and simple because i think this image really doesn’t need much else with it, so all I have done is added some ribbon and wood hearts which I coloured using my Spectrum’s. 
I hope you like it 🙂

Crafter’s Companion Snowman, Snowdog & Father Christmas 4 day deal Sneak peek

Morning lovelies, I hope you are all ok ? 
Next week the lovely Sara will be bringing you an AMAZING 4 day deal on Create and Craft…I can’t tell you too much but any Snowman, Snowdog & Father Christmas fans you NEED to watch. 
Part of the deal is a fab CD Rom  & Stamps and today I wanted to share with you some of my design team samples I have made. 
This card is done using Embossalicious Vintage Christmas collection 6×6 vintage decorations embossing folder, I have rubbed some gilding wax over the embossing to bring the embossed details out and then the Father Christmas’s are from Father Christmas Stamp Set and coloured with my Spectrum Noirs (colours below) I then just added some Twine and the sentiment is also from the same stamp set.
On the CD Rom is a section for decorations, and I thought this image screamed vintage so I printed it onto Kraft Card and then added some twine for hanging and some distress ink….it is such a beautiful image i didn’t think it needed much doing to it.  

Also on the CD Rom is Christmas Wreaths….I am not the worlds greatest at cutting out, but have to say i really enjoyed doing this. I printed it all onto Kraft Card and then the berries i coloured with DR2 and DR3 Spectrum Noir Markers. I then added a Silk crush ribbon bow, a poinsettia flower and some heather.

Visible Image ATC’s

Morning Lovelies, 
I am a bit late with my post this morning, the weekends weather has been causing lots of problems with internet here. I do hope you are all safe. 
Anyway on to my post for Visible Image. 
This week i decided to make some ATC’s 
 I have used the flowers from the following More Than Words sets- 
The background i have used Bronte Script and stamped without a stamping block to give a different effect. I have then used  chalkboard paint and Dylusions. The edges were done using Grunge Florish stamp
I really enjoyed doing this and it was so fun to do something different. 
Don’t forget the current challenge is Anything goes and you can enter via the blog or via the Facebook Group, just make sure you use a Visible Image Stamp and you could win £20 to spend in the shop !!
