A Twinkle In Their Eyes

There is definitely a twinkle in the eyes of those ladies as they look at Mr Handsome.

The ladies (which is a Hero Arts stamp) are stamped onto die cut tickets … not sure but I think the stamp is discontinued, you may still find it on e-bay.


Made the background with various stamps and white paint.  Distress inks used are Broken China, Evergreen Bough and Stormy Sky.

Black Versafine was used for the main stamping and the sewing machine also made an appearance.



Brushos & Dot

Dot and I had another Skyping session and this time we used our Brushos.

These are a new addition to Dot’s crafting stash but I have had mine a while … holding up my hands in shame as I have not used them very much.

You can see one of my makes herehow sad is it that I made this a year ago and this was the last time I used the Brushos.

We experimented by using different cardstock with them and making  some very vibrant coloured backgrounds.  Can’t wait to see what Dot makes with her backgrounds.

Because of the time difference Dot scooted off to bed but I had time to turn my finished backgrounds into three different cards.

So Special from Katzelkraft is the main focal point on my first card – also used other stamps and a stencil.


Two more close up pics.


For my second background I used only two colours and some very different stamps.  The ladies are from Hero Arts and the coffee from Stampendous.  The bubbles are a fave little background stamp of mine and I love adding little doodles in the centres.


Grunged the edges on the last card and used stamps from Dyan Reaveley called The Right Words also a Visible Image stamp.
