Sweet Pea Card

I made this card the other day using a Sweetpea Stamp which I coloured using waterecolour pencils and added a lot of stickles to her wings, roses and dress. The stunning papers are from the Prima Madeline 6x6 paper pad and the flowers again are prima with MME Lush Gems for the centres. The scalloped edge I made using a Martha Stewert Deco Fan punch.

I am so looking forward to the weekend, my lovely friend Jade is getting married next month and its her hen weekend, were heading off tomorrow to Camber Sands, then Saturday were going to Hastings for a picnic on the beach and some vintage shopping, I love the old town in Hastings its full of antique shops :) then Saturday night we'll be in Hastings and having dinner is a Mexican restaurant then going clubbing which should be fun then Sunday morning I think we may be going to Rye in the morning, I love Rye again for all the antique and vintage shops :) then after that were all heading back home to sunny (most likely rainy) Hhertfordshire.

I hope you all have a fab weekend whatever your getting up too xxxx

Bombshell Card

 Morning everyone, hope you are all well. It was my lovely friend Dawn's birthday on Friday and we had a fab day on Saturday having a vintage picnic in the park :) Dawn is really into her gorgeous burlesque and pin up girls so I just had to use this stunning Bombshell image from the mans ruin set to make her card. Her favourite colour is purple so that set the colour theme. To make the background I used the text from Studio 490 Art from the Heart set and stamped it using Dusty Concord distress stains, I then distressed around the edges using Wild Honey distress ink. I used glossy accents to make the glass more realistic. The swallows are from the bombshell love and luck set. The trim was created using Martha Stewarts Deco Fan punch and the text I created using Tim Holtz Vintage Market die.

I cut the cage out of black card then used perfect pearls mists in heirloom gold, and sprayed away, love the effect it made :) The tag is a size 8 craft tag which I inked using color washes in lettuce and stream, really love these :) and think this colour combo is FAB.
