Flower Birthday Card using Sending Lots of Love from Stamps By Me

Good afternoon.  Hope you are well and having a great day.

I'm back from my hols in Fuerteventura,  I did have a little accident while I was there when I fell down a gravel slope while out birdwatching and made a bit of  a mess of my knee which slightly put a damper on the trip but other than that I had a good time.

I have a card to share today using the free May 2019 members stamp from Stamps By Me.

I have used:
I stamped using Memento Toffee Crunch ink to give a pale outline and then coloured with Chameleon Pens and added a few line details with Chameleon Pencils.

Still getting to grips with the Chameleon Pens, I was tempted to reach for my trusty copics but I do love the blend from yellow to purple on the top pansy style flower, so will try to persevere.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog and I'll see you soon x

Crafty Calendar May Challenge - Distress It with Peonies from SheepSki Designs

Good morning.  I hope you are having a good day.  I'm a little late posting as I've been busy ironing and packing ready for going on holiday.  I like going away but hate the preparation leading up to it.

We have a new monthly challenge over at Crafty Calendar and the theme is 

 For my card I have used:

Peonies Image No.154 from SheepSki Designs coloured with Spectrum Sparkle Pens and then sprayed with water for the colour to bleed and spread,
I used Old Paper Distress ink to colour the edges of the paper and distressed the paper round the edges
I used Old Paper Distress Ink and a script stamp from the Hobby Art Becki's Background stamp set in a couple of  places and added a few splashes of watercolour paint.
Mounted onto black card and finished with a check ribbon, a few sequins and stamped sentiment.
