Here I am at last.........with a quick card or two...that have taken me three afternoons to sort!.....so nothing new there then, not quick at all.
First up..the pink one.
I have recently bought these balloon stamps from Uniko Studio , so I wanted to try to them out. Could I find the right colour pink in an ink that would not bead on the stamp....no! In the end I managed the above (Versa chalk) but the bottom balloon is coloured over with copics. The little hearts above Tatty Teds head are also from the set.
Tatty Teddy was a freebie on a magazine ages ago I think and he had never been inked....I even had the official Tatty Ted ink pad for him, but it's not compatible with the copics (it bled) when it comes to shading him in, so I found an old Tombow pen and used that!
The new baby stamp was also in my stash...another freebie on a magazine from way back I think.I was so convinced I had a stamp that said...It's a girl!....and ...It's a boy! but guess what.....no I haven't......do I dream these things I ask myself? WHY when I have a room full of stuff do I not have the right stamp, the right ink, the right colour??...........so frustrating.
The tiny hearts have wink of Stella on top of them but it does not show well in photos......in fact not at all!
I mounted the top layer on foam pads after pricking round the edge.
THEN I made a blue one!
Same problem with the colours of the balloons and inks...same remedy!
So even when I have an idea in my head...it still takes forever to execute!...talking of which no mojo on the Mothers day card yet either.
So how are you? Hope you are well and having better luck than me with your creative ability.On peeking at your blogs you seem to all be creating the most awesome cards, and more than one a week at that...please let me in on your secret? How do you get them together so quickly?
I am liking the lighter nights I have to say and can't wait for spring and summer....but then I will want to be in the garden and not the craft room....can't win!
Before I head off I would just like to mention one of my followers Emma who is setting off tomorrow to the Sahara to do a trek for PANDAS(Pre and Post Natal Depression Advice and Support) and I wish her all the best. She already has blistered feet and a March fracture before she starts...one very gutsy lady with a big heart.Take a look at her blog here if you want to know more. GOOD LUCK Emma............and Emma if you can feel the sand between your toes......it means you have a hole in your boot!! lol
On that note, I thank you all for calling in and welcome to my new follower Di, I hope you continue to pop by and like what you see.
Please leave me a comment..........anyone........they make my day....and I'll be back to visit you.
Have a good weekend......first week of March finished with.......groan........soon be Easter!
