Love Birds

Fabulous news! Cuddly Buddly are now selling Sylvia's cute digi designs, yes Wee Stamps digis are now available here in the UK!

I created a card with little Suzi a few days ago, this time I've used the cute little birds on a swing. I printed the image out the size it came, which is quite big so I had to make a bigger card - out of my comfort zone a bit and next time I'll make it smaller. I coloured the love birds image with Copics: RV000, R81, R83, BV000, BV00, BV01, V000, V01, E0000, E40, E41, E42, G20, YG11 and a Sakura Stardust pen on the swing. The white pearls I made with my Waco pearl maker pen, the edges of the papers and the image are inked with Victorian Velvet DI then I've gone around with the Stardust Stickles. I ran out of ideas for embellishment and couldn't get the right colour paper roses so abandoned the idea of matching them to the image. I did find a piece of pretty organza ribbon and the little satin ribbon roses so added them with a few punched leaves and a Marianne die cut swirl. I think my Mr Mojo has taken the weekend off without asking .. .. hope he comes home soon!

I found another challenge blog, called Kreative Stempelfreunde, or Creative Stamp Friends in English. The current theme is for checks so I'm entering my card in their challenge. The ABC challenge is up to the letter O for ovals, so this is my entry for their challenge too.

Whatever you are doing, have fun this weekend. I'm having a bit of a rest so will be back with you early next week.

  10. It's just a bit outside your comfort zone Annie - that's all, don't think Mr Mojo has gone anywhere, looks absolutely stunning & I do think that it was right with those white flowers rather than matching them to the image - the eye stays with the image this way.
