My black heart

Yay, splodging paint is fun!

I'm not sure Hunk really has a black heart, he's too horribly cute.

The challenge at A Step in the Dark is anything goes- but on the darker side...... hope this fits.

Rain, rain, go away....

A card or two to show you today. Both made with a Stamping Bella image.

Coloured with Promarkers, and lots of added sparkle :)

Love the little snail. I'm entering this card into the Papertake weekly challenge- Spots and Dots and the That's Crafty Stamping ground challenge

I'm entering this second version into the I love Promarkers challenge- Anything goes and the Simon Says Wednesday challenge which is Summer- and what says a British summer better than flowers and wellies?

Black and white

The challenge at the Stampotique challenge blog is to use music as inspiration. Which fits perfectly with a couple of ATCs I made for a Stampotique swap. The theme was black and white, and the Michael Jackson song of the same name kept popping into my mind.

There's always a dragon......

Now this notebook was my favourite teacher's present make.

Lots of Lavinia stamps on this one :)

Lots of glitter too- fairy wings always need glitter, right?

Oh, and a dragon- there's always a dragon!

I'm entering this into the Lavinia stamps challenge- Add some glitter

Fairy wings

A couple more teacher notebook presents to show today. This was another impulse stamp buy, years ago at a craft show, and it's still a favourite.

I'm entering this into the Try it on Tuesday- Things with wings challenge.

That stamp.

You know how there's that one stamp that you bought on a whim, because you kinda liked it, and then you realise it was one of your best buys ever? Well that's this dress stamp.

Stamps beautifully, paper pieces perfectly. Always looks great once it's blinged up.

This card was a last minute commission, and my trusty dress stamp didn't disappoint!

Summer, summer, summertime!

Bye bye school for a few weeks, and after today, bye bye work for me for a few days too, hurray! I made notebooks for Miss Little Legs' lovely teachers- this one was a favourite.

I think it's the colours, so bright and summery.

The Lavinia fairy is stamped twice and cut out so that she pops up a bit from the background. I indulged in one of my most-used techniques round the edges- stamping in a lighter colour, then overlaying with black. It gives the border depth. 

Lots of sparkle!!! Well, you'd expect no less from me!

I'm entering this into the Lavinia Stamps blog challenge- summer colours,
and also into the Stamping Sensations challenge- summer blooms
and the Crafting Musketeers challenge- summertime
