Pieces of eight!


Another job of stamping and masking for this card just like a couple of days ago.  This time I used Watercolour wash and work of art stamps to create the background… A nice watery feel!

I added the black border and then mounted on a coordinating card blank.  final touches were some pearls added… needed some treasure for the pirate girl!

Hope you like this.

Happy crafting!


Watercolor wings … First inking!

I am currently struggling a little health wise as I keep have strange dizzy sickly spells which the doctor thinks is Labryinthitis.  Whatever it is it isn’t pleasant when it hits, although at least it is not as bad as others have it as it is on and off, not continuous.  However I am not allowed to drive and for the last two days been officially off sick from work.  Back to it today, albeit I only managed half a day before nausea hit.  Anyway yesterday, Helen popped by with my order and a hug – the latter was of course appreciated greatly.  The stamps I had ordered were however something I had wanted since I saw them in the catalogue… Watercolor wings.  Yes I know the spelling is American but you get the idea! 

So I had to ink them up yesterday and created this card… Also using the watercolor wash background stamp in the background. 

I used So Saffron for the background, Daffodil delight, Calypso Coral and Early Espresso for the butterfly.  Gorgeous!  Then mounted the panel onto Hello Honey, a scrap of first edition, and Chocolate Chip card stock (I stamped the little dots down one side of this).

Finished with some silk thread through a vintage style button. 

Whilst blog hopping yesterday I had a desire to share through a few challenge blogs and this card works for the following….

 Craft your passion -anything goes
 Incy wincy designs -spots and dots (dots down the side of the brown panel)

 Papertake weekly challenge -anything goes
It’s been a while since I did any challenges and it was fun to blog hop a while in between the dizzy spells!  

Happy crafting!
