Sending You X's and O's

Hey there - how is your first week in 2018 turning out? I hope - fabulously!

I've been having another little play with the fabulous Altenew Build-A-Flower Rose set -

I've linked up the pink and green inks used below but the yellows were just a mixture of inks in my stash - Memento, Distress etc.

I hope you're managing to find some therapeutic crafting time at the moment.

See you again in a few days...



Popping in today to share a card I've created with Altenew's Charmed Stamp set.

I stamped the large floral image on watercolour card and coloured it with Brushos adding details with

Spectrum Noir Shimmer Pens in Solar Red and Emerald Green.

Happy World Card Making Day

I'm so delighted that I had a chance to create a card today - in celebration of WCMD. I feel so blessed to have this hobbie that brings me so much joy - not only when I'm creating the card but when I'm giving it to someone special as well. Not to mention the beautiful crafty friends that I have made along the way who are just as crazy about paper crafting as I am. 

Today I was smiling from ear to ear playing with Altenew's newest Build-A-Flower set - the Rose. Oh.My.It.Is.Glorious! My desk was covered in inks as I experimented with a variety of colour combos. Here's my card...

Sending Smiles Angled

On the pink rose I used mainly Altenew Inks (Frosty Pink/Pink Diamond/Pinkalicious/Rubellite/Razzleberry and Distress Seedless Preserves in the centre) The yellow rose was a real combination of brands (MFT Insulation Pink and Orange Fizz/Memento Dandelion, Tangelo, Potter's Clay and Rich Cocoa) For the leaves I used Altenew's Bamboo/Parrot/Olive and Moss inks.

The sentiment in Kristina Werner's gorgeous handwriting is from Simon Says Stamp's Handlettered Encouragement Set.

A smattering of Pretty Pink Posh sparkling clear sequins was the finishing touch. Think I'll link this up in the SSS WCMD Gallery :-)

I hope you have some fun creative time today.

See you again on Tuesday for the October Challenge for Scrapbook Boutique.
