french chair

hi guys

still in loads of pain arghhhhhh, and my meds don't seem to be working to well but at least i've got my crafting to take my mind off everything :)
just finished making this card been playing with digi stamps again.
this one i've coloured the chair with blue and walnut promarkers and for the distressing i used mustard followed by ice grey 2 with another layer of the mustard on the top. i used a black ink pad round the edges of the digi and to create the crease effect dotted around i gently folded the paper and ran the ink pad along it, was really please with finished look of it because the fold lines look raised but aren't it is totally flat :) i layered it onto black and gold  card and made a black rosette with a pearl for the centre just to finish to topper off. the card layer is kanban not sure of the name of it but works really well. it's finished off with a black strip of paper down the crease edge and gems in two of the corners.

ooh la la 2

Hi guys :) well after a very painful night with my back and joints i decided to craft.

I've made another ooh lala card this time using blue for the corset and distressed the rest of the image.

I really love this digi stamp and the best thing is it was a freebie.

the layering and flower are all made with card stock i got from re-create seltd. really love the things they have coming in :)

Hi guys sorry I've not been around for a couple of days, me and lee haave both been in pain plus i've had loads of panic attacks :(

but this is a card i've made using one of the free digi stamps i found. i used marbled cream card to print it on then coloured over that with vanilla and ice grey2 the frame is colours in with cocoa and went over the top of that again with the vanilla. and edged it with black and bronce in. i then layered the card with gold paper and the marbled card just egding that again with the black and bronze to give it an aged look i also went round the card base with the same colours. the gold glitter strip is made from glitter paper with double sided tape on the back (i've made myself several lengths of that to use on different cards :D  and the flower is made from cream card with glitter flowers in it :)

Hi guys :)

This is the topper i was working on this morning now mounted to a card.

I've distressed the card using black and copper ink pads.

the roses are made from black and copper paper. i finished teh black one off with just touching round the top with the copper ink pad.

hi guys :) i found these digi stamps on another blog thought they were so cute :) i've distressed them up a bit just to give them an older feel the top one i used ivory ice grey 2 henna and pastel beige out the the promarker range. on the second one my ivory promarker has run out so used vanilla instead, was more than happy with the outcome though. just going to have to get myself a new ivory now though.

 This is the fairy card i've made this evening, used loads of holographics on this one the edges of the topper are framed with rub on foil with two different widths of double sided tape and the strip is some i found in my stash which i've now double sided taped and it makes a fab add on. to fish it off i used a few gems in purples. the silver flowers are all handmade

and this is the cuddling cats birthday card i made today aswell :)  been using my promarkers loads with digi's. i finished this one off with card candi dots just to give a splash of colour
this is the card i've been working on today. :) titled think we've ott'd on the shades of grey lol.

I've not read the books and have no intention too but heard soooooooo much about it thought that she would be a perfect little giggle for all the people out there that are into the whole saga :).

she's coloured using promarkers and mounted on an over covered with rub on foils. i then got an off white curling ribbon to go round the edge and finished the oval off by going round again in a thicker silver ribbon. all the flowers are handmade and thought the red card candi dot just  added that little bit of colour :)
