You make me Smile

Hi all
Another lovely day here in the lovely Yorkshire. My kids were happy doing their thing, so I went off and did mine!!lol
I haven't had much time to play with the new Tim Holtz Sizzix die 'Tattered Florals' (Yes i know i'm VERY lucky to have one,they seem to be like gold at the moment!) and I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!! I got it from the fabby STAMPMAN. I used the medium and small flower to make these flowers.

I'm loving water colouring with my DYE ink pads. For those who read my blog you will know I'm not a fan of colouring with pens(though there's nothing wrong with that!!)I just love painting and trying my best to improve and make do with what Ive got. For this Tilda Ive used Adirondack ink pad Pool(Yes! you dont just have to use distress inks) any dye ink will work.

The flowers were also coloured with Pool and edged with Distress Brushed Corduroy. The metal corners are from The Stampman.

The Just Magnolia Challenge this week is a sketch.
Basic Grey Challenges this week is Turquoise,Brown and Cream. So Pool was perfect for this and I used my yummy Basic grey 'stroky papers'

My pictures aren't very good as it was quite a difficult one to photograph, but Tilda was actually inside the card and the outer panel was an aperture . I used my nestie Circles for this.

After entering Crafty Cardmakers Challenge the other week and having to decorate the inside of your cards, I'm loving this look too. It just adds that extra dimension.

Challenges are:

Bye for now

Tristan Robin said...


how do you paint with ink pads? do you use a wet brush? or puddle the ink with water on a craft sheet?
