There was something about this cutie popping out of the box with all of the confetti (ok sequins) exploding out around him that just makes me smile... I've used the highlight in prismacolour over copic technique again and love how this card turned out.

toucan do things better

Ok, yes I ****** up I dropped the Misti and I double stamped the purple dots, but it's not bad is it?

I was actually quite pleased with my new Avery Elle Stamps.

we'll miss you Fraggle

I was sad to hear that my brother's cat Fraggle had to be 'put down' due to complete kidney failure, he was an old cat, but still behaved like a kitten, and it seems so strange that she is gone. Her sister Muppet is wandering around lost...

So I had to send something, a small note to say that I was thinking of them all. The die is Paper Smooches, and sentiment Clearly Besotted.

only two years late...

I shared this on instagram ages ago and didn't manage to share it here on my blog and so here it is...

Lawn Fawn winter bunny coloured in copics with a winter llama sentiment with a distress ink sky. The silver splashes are a distress stain spray.

an excuse to buy stamps

looking around at what other people are doing I'm seeing a lot of people detailing their copic colouring with their prismacolor pencils, and so I thought I'd give it a go on this little cutie

I have specifically bought this stamp to make my valentine's card, but he has exchangeable sentiments so I'm sure you will see him again (otherwise it was a really expensive valentines card

the background is a hero arts stamp set with the little hearts each stamped randomly

in all I'm quite pleased with my colouring efforts, especially around the ears, but I'm most pleased that I used enamel accents for the nose without ruining it before they enamel accents dried

when it comes to crafts I hardly throw anything away, if a piece of card is big enough to cut a circle from I will keep it, and all of those scraps have been lovingly cut using my smallest spellbinders nestabilities circle die over the weekend so that I had hundreds of little circles in blue and green

These have then been layered together to form this fish scale look, I look some card and covered it with double sided tape (I use a 2" wide tape from elizabeth crafts to do this) then just started sticking the circles down in this overlapping pattern

finished with a lawn fawn sentiment, then I have a card, but I don't just have one card, like many of the cards I make I have also made 'kits' up as well, this is so my mum can make up a few cards as well

playing with old toys

I'm in a rut, I've got no inclination for colouring even though it's the daily marker 30 day challenge, and so I have dug out a very old toy, my silhouette, to make this card, oh and scraps too, I like cards that use up scraps

yet another lavender bag, I'm hoping to have one in with every piece of cashmere when they are in storage
