Vintage Phone booth

I have used vintage phone booth coloured in copics, turned into a winter card using my minds eye vintage christmas papers. I have added applique and glitter, burgundy silk ribbon and a christmas tree charm.

Tuesday 29 October 2013


This card took forever to dry! I coloured in Shelly using copics in small circles so it looks like scales then added stardust stickles to it to add sparkle. I then used a mixture of papers, echo park- all about a boy, echo park- scoot, simple stories - smarty pants, simple stories - say cheese to add depth to the card. I then added some muslim to look like a fishing net and added an anchor and a shell charm. A tim holtz tag, some flowers and pearls finished off this card.

Witch Tilda with pumpkins

I don't normally do halloween and i think it shows! As I wanted to use lots of embellishments I decided to keep the background plain white so not to distract. Witch Tilda with pumpkins, coloured in copics and polychromo's, the feathers add an extra dimension as do the fibres, flowers and the charm.

Do check out the stamp and create blog where you will see much better halloween cards than mine!

The flowers have been frosted with lace stickles.  I do hope you like it and I do appreciate all comments that are left for me.

Hello the theme on Basic grey this challenge is easter, I have taken this as easter bonnets and here is my card as I don't send easter cards.  The paper is an old pad called cappella that I have a few random sheets of left.

Now due to the followers thingy changing I will be also displaying my cards on facebook here, and there are free give aways on there too.

Hope everyone is well, I am slowly on the mend from that rotten bug hence why I have not produced any cards of late.

I will leave you with a card I made a few weeks ago, but never blogged.
