Two for Saturday......What a Week!


Good Morning Blogger's,

Thanks for dropping by.

I have two cards to share today, they've both been sitting on my desk for a few days and I was going to just put them away because........ well they didn't turn out quite as I thought they would! 

The first uses one of the new June release sets from Annabelle Stamps*.  Sentimental Bluebells is a sweet image and I really like the grass stamp from the same set.  I had planned to just stamp the outline along with a sentiment so used a VersaColor blue and Memento New Sprout ink.  Once stamped I couldn't resist adding some Copic colour and the two didn't mix so well (If you look at one of the bluebells you'll see what I mean).  Hey ho! It looks worse in this picture than IRL .  I still like it, it's like a soft watercolour ...... think Monet ish!!!!


My second card uses a clear stamp from MFT called All Dressed Up - Jolinne.  She is such a little cutie and one of two I bought to colour with Copics. Something I haven't really done in a while.
OK so what's the story with this one............Well she started off blonde!  I changed my mind because of the background card colour. So poor Jolinne has 'wild' hair! If I was her I'd change hairdresser!  Never mind it's just been one of those weeks! AnnaBelle's Pink Petals Kit added the pink gems and pink petal. The Rose comes from www.enthaily.com  The ribbon from my stash.   

    
Hope you all scrambled through to the end of the week and enjoy a relaxing week end.  
Rain predicted here,  so think I might sit in front of the fire with a good book.
Till next time..........
