pixies and mushrooms

I have some new cards that I made for Oddball Stamps by Lizzy love! The first one is my take on her lovely image of Nixie the Pixie, image #217. I took some of the components of the  digi stamp and blew them up. That is the really cool thing about using digi stamps, you don't have to use the whole image every time.You can also shrink things or blow them up!!! How fun is that. Anyway here she is Nixie.

I also did something completely different with the image for the next card/tag. For this one I used the mushrooms from #217 and blew them up. I also swapped Nixie out for Hadley #110B. I did not use the clouds and I also reversed the image of Hadley. The over all feel is more like an Alice in wonderland, with a little bit of steampunk thrown in for good measure.

Happy Mothers Day with ADU

I just found "All Dressed Up" digital stamps. I am so new to the digi world that it seems everyday I learn about a new (to me) site. Their current challenge is to make a Mothers Day card. The image that I chose is "I Love my Puppy". I chose this image because my mom loves dogs. We always had a dog growing up and I had a dog of my own "Amy" who lived to the ripe old age of 15. These days mom lives in an assisted living complex. so no more puppies.

My card is a simple one, kind of shabbied up a bit, coloured with Copics, the flower is a Tim die, the sentiment is one i did up on a word program. Doing a shabby gives me the opportunity to use up scraps and my stash. This sweet image lent itself to the colour palette that  I chose, bright, colourful and most of all Happy!!!

You too can get this  fabby little girl and her puppy along with many more here.     http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/210041806/scrapbooking.html

Hip to be square,shabby style!!!

Here is my card for Oddball DT for Facebook, mid May reminder.The images that I used by Lizzy love are #203 and #110B. I found myself in a Shabby Chic mood, so I pulled some scraps (because that is all you really need). Roughed up the edges, applied some of Tims distress inks , gave everything a good spritz of water and let the magic happen. The "roses" are a direct inspiration from the bow in her hair, infact that is what led to ordering her.I "saw" the roses in my head and knew I needed to make them fo this card. I used the same distress inking on them, add a pearl or two okay three, and a bow. The sentiment is from Graphic 45, the back ground is found in #203 and I backed it all the a scallop shape. I used water colour paper for the card and water coloured it.  it was fun to do something shabby for a change, if you have not tried it , give it a go sometime.
