Well heres my entry for the Penny Black Challenge, anything goes! I love purple and pink together so decided to with that, and I am so pleased how the image came out, apart from the pink balloon, but seeing as I have only had my watercolour pencils a couple of weeks I was pleased. I used Penny Black 'Bubbly' stamps, papermania texture card and some background paper from Dove craft.
Not only that my first ever Tilda Stamps arrived today, I told the postman I loved him, because they only took a week to arrive, fortunately he didnt understand me because he's Turkish!! I can't wait to ink them up tonight and colour her in.......ah bliss! I have Tilda with Rubber ring, and Tilda eating ice cream, both of which I haven't seen on many creations. I decided on those because I want to make some special cards for the tourists. Watch this space to find out what else I have on the way, shall I tell you......ummm no I'l wait till later, I am so excited feels like my birthday or something!!
Well this is the first challenge card I have ever made, and I have to say I found this a little difficult but I liked the challenge I having to stick to a sketch, quite often a card doesnt turn out how I pictured and I go off ona tangent somewhere. So here is my card using Claire Curds sketch from stampin chic!! All products from the stampin chic range, plus a pit of papermania texture card, glitz glitter and black ink with embossing! Thanks for looking, now I just have to suss out how to link this, wish me luck!!!
I can't believe how busy I have been with cards and jewellery lately. I am trying to get everything ready for the summer season, and I just havn't had the time for any photography!! Well I am here now!! So to make up for it I have a few things to show you, they are all using the Claire Curd Signature Range, and I have there blog to thank for the inspiration for these pieces thanks girls. Butterfly card, I put another Dingle Dangle with Happy Birthday as I have really fell in love with them, I used my new watercolour pencils to colour the butterfly, and I did a bit of clear embossing for the first time!! Second card again another butterfly, and I love the small butterfly sitting on a flower. And lastly my favourite, the stamps are also from the Claire Curd Range, and I used my new watercolours again, I am so pleased with how the image came out. I also added my own handmade earrings, all silver plated and my favourite Swarovski crystal. Well I hope you agree I have been busy, and its time to get back to it again, only this time a bracelet card. I will going to craft fayre in May to mark the beginning of Calis Carnival week, so if any of you are holidaying near the area come along, the main street is being shut off, and it starts at 11 till 4. Hope to see some of you in Calis. Bye for now.
Well I was looking at my blog today and thought it needed little bit of improving, and I thought I would make a seperate one for cards, but then I would lose all the info about jewellery, and I do some love the two together, especially when I design jewellery cards!! So I decided on a new name Curious cards, but I may well change this! Me being Little Miss Indecisive!! Here are my latest offers!! Made from the new range by Claire Curd, I am so loving these, the Big One papers, and the stampin chic stamps, you really should get your hands on these!! I love the colours. I chalked the image with pebbles chalks, although I hope to get some watercolour pencils, or copic pens soon. and I added the JUST FOR YOU as a dingle dangle!!
Another card using Claire Curd range, again the image has been chalked.
and my final offering for today, is a card made with Daisy papers and stickers, I also added some papermania brads and flowers. Thanks for looking.
