Cuppa Tea?

Saturday, 28 April 2012

Good afternoon everyone!
I've decided to reward myself with a nice cuppa and a crafty day today (and maybe even tomorrow too!) cos I've worked really hard all week catching up at work and I haven't had a good crafty day in ages!
So I thought I'd start off by blogging a card I had made a while ago.  You may remember I showed the image I was colouring in a WOYWW post a couple of months ago, well this is the card I made with it.  I didn't want to blog it straight away cos it was for a swap on the forum, following a spring theme, and I wanted to make sure everyone had received it first.  Then I forgot all about it!

Here it is:

The image is a digi stamp from Charmed Cards & Crafts called Forget-Me-Not (ironically!) which I coloured with my copics: Skin; E13,21,00,0000,R20,04.  Dress; BG18,15,13. Flowers; YR24,23,21,E37. Hair; E49,44,43,41. Leaves & Wings; YG97,95,93,91,blender.  And I used the following Prisma pencils: Kelp Green, Dark Brown, Black and White.

 I used a Martha Stewart Hydrangea PATP punch, a Spellbinders die for the sentiment and a Sizzix Bigz Vine die.  Also the "Spring" letters are die cute using Sizzix "Tina thinks you're cute" dies.  The papers are from the Alla-Prima collection.

I used a few stamps from the U-Mount "Funky Floral" stamp collection using versamark inkpad on mat card - I love the watermark effect that gives.  I did it again on the inside:
