Foxy little lady

I love this gorjus girls stamp, the leaves and corner stamp on it are fab.
I coloured her in very softly in water colored down artiste pens . She is stamped in chocolate brown on a background of spritzed inked and distressed paper. All the papers are heavily inked / distressed and dragged into ink (artiste -gold stone ) that was spritzed on an acrylic block. I cut out a small framed girl from the paper pack 8x8 gorjus girls -stamped over this and the corner stamp in purple colour box ink.
The with love & butterflies stamps are from bellisima range - shoes & bag

More gorjus - on a roll now

Had some fun with the jewel capsule spots and stripes pack. 
Interesting how different a stamp can look.
I enjoyed spritzing & dipping with Do Crafts Artiste spritzing ink
Gold stone colour. 
This time the little lady was coloured in using Artiste pens.

Gorjus girl with her bunny - made for a 1 yr old

This is an 8x 8 that I made for my best friends granddaughter.
Emily Rose is one year old & I thought this stamp would be cute.

The card is cream, so I stamped the gorjus girl onto cream and coloured her in with pro markers.
I am not an expert at these but I think it's ok.
The roses paper I used to stamp the dress is from my scrap & the roses background is Lucy Cromwell
Glittered design stack. I stamped the frame (in the same stamp pack) onto some spotty capsule paper.
I finished off with gorjus girl buttons and bow. I also used some he bury lane stickers around the frame.

40thBirthday card

I made this 40th Birthday card for my lovely daughter , using the gorgeous Madame Payroud collection from Docrafts
The inside has a section for me to put tickets  in, this is to see Wicked in Southampton ! I am not silly, I get to go too :-)

 the background is a pale blue  paper covered with a MP vellum paper which is only 6 x 6 so i ripped
it down the diagonal and have distressed the edges also inked the edges.
i added the red organza ribbon across this.
the hearts are from  die cut selections from the MP range the top heart has its edges inked in red.
i stamped 'Daughter' using the friends and relations acrylic stamps set from Do Crafts.
this was decoupages onto a darker blue and then red. all edges inked in red as before.
the 40 and the surround on the happy birthday sentiment are also stamped.
the top clear butterfly is stamped onto acetate and cut out, shaped to stand out.
finished off with pearls and another butterfly.
the inside, (see below) has a pocket which i cut from the front of the 8 x 8 MP packet of papers
(waste not want not!) I also used an envelope and a pretty bird charm from the MP range.
