Good afternoon lovely peeps!
My work rota has left me little time for crafting the past few days but the end is in sight as after Friday I get enjoy a few lovely days off.

For today's card I have featured Avery Elle's Modern Alpha dies & I have created this card CAS, & I actually like this one! 

I have stamped the cute image  Penelope has a pencil by Stamping Bella onto one of Simon's Large Tags & then coloured it with my copics & foam mounted it ready to pop onto my card.

I've die cut some white card stock with the whole Modern Alpha Die & popped some kraft behind it, then run a strip of Darice sparkle tape along the edge of my panel for a little extra sparkle before adhering it to my card. 
I also die cut the "HI" from the Modern Alpha Die using Darice sparkle tape & popped them into the die cut to create the sentiment.
I have added some finishing touches with a twine bow & a few Nuvo Crystal Drops  in Antique Rose.

The copic colours I've used are -

Splatter It! - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
I am full of cold & haven't been feeling very energetic the last few days so I've been comfy on my sofa doing lots of colouring on my days off. I just need to stop aching so much so I can get into my craft room & create cards for all these pretty images.


It's Wednesday which means -

SPLATTER IT!

& this week the design team are featuring

Ranger logo

For today's card I have featured an assortment of lovely distress inks with a water brush & some liquid pearls as I'm sure you've noticed I do love my pearls!
I stamped and coloured my image first & then inked some splatters around the image using the stencil. I then stamped some of the ink pads onto an acrylic block & used a water brush to water them down, covered the image and flicked various colours of  watered down ink around the image.

That's me finished for today as I need to get ready for working a late shift, although with the good old UK "Summer"weather being what is it I'd much rather be snuggled on my sofa this afternoon & evening.
