Colouring in Monochrome

Make it Colourful are having a challenge this week colouring in Monochrome.

I chose a lovely stamp by Sweet Pea Stamps. It is called Lily Dream. I used my Copics of course, C1, C3 and C5. Oh and I highlighted with a tiny bit of pink. I also used Stampin Up's Baroque Motifs, grey card stock and silver embossing powder; Coredinations pink card stock, a cuttle bug embossing folder, some generic bling  and Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels One.

I really like the way she has turned out. I have to remember to use my embossing buddy thingo before embossing. I never remember, doh! Let me know what you think.

More new cards

I have two lovely cards to present today. One is a new Tilda (Magnolia) I got for Christmas. She is so gorgeous. I had a lot of fun colouring her. I also used a colour combo I hadn't gone with before. So here she is, a birthday card for my Mother. (I've got more of these flowers coming in the post, I cant wait to get them).

This next card I have made for my sisters baby shower. She has gone a bit jungle like in the baby's bedroom so I thought this card would be fitting. All the products in this are from Stampin Up.

Sorry its a bit blurry.

The paper used for the birthday card is from Kaiser Craft. It is a new release from December 2010 called English Rose. I love it and am tempted to buy some more of it.

Copics, copics, copics

I love colouring with copics. The blending ability of them has dramatically changed my card making style. I enjoy it so much. And the range of colours is incredible. Copic Oz is having a competition at the moment giving away a pack of the 36 copic ciao colours. How exciting is that? Go here to find out how to enter the competition.

Aren't they beautiful?

Fabric Tattered Florals

I am in a flower frenzie at the moment. I even bought a floral decorative feature at Kmart yesterday because the pink roses were just the right size for my cards, and it came with a container of "silk" petals underneat that I will put to good use.

These flowers are made with Tim Holtz' Tattered Florals and fabric. I think they turned out really well. The brads are Stampin Up's Build-a-brad and the small ones are from Making Memories from many many years ago.

I'm looking forward to putting these on a card.

I'm thinking of getting some spray starch to see if I can make some with petals that stand up.
