The theme this week a Simon Says Monday is "Go Fish"
I really like this Kingfisher stamp, so I created a little scene for him. Used sponged Distress Inks in three colours to create the water, then stamped grasses and reeds in two colours and then added some dimension with coloured texture paste over the grass. At the last minute I decided not to add a sentiment instead I re-stamped the bird wing and fussy cut it to give the kingfisher more life.  Thanks for taking a peek

Simon Says: Go Fish

Happy Wishes

Today I'm enjoying some quiet creative time at my desk after a morning of re-potting some plants. Yep I'm a gardener who just loves flowers - they make me happy. So of course my tag features a flower. I've truly just cased Michelle's tag over at Tag You're It #54 - I love the colours.  I finished off my DI watercoloured tag with a few tiny sequins and some colourful threads.  Thanks for taking a peek

Today I've had a little bit of fun with TH Birds stamps to make a birthday card.  As you can see I masked off one of the smaller birds and coloured them in with some cheery colours, then I added some smiles and lashes and a few pearls so the birthday girl is looking her best. I added some speech bubbles/ or they could be tags and stamped on a sentiment.  Finished off by layering with two bright panels and a hand drawn frame. I'm posting to Shopping Our Stash SOS266 - use numbers, also Seize the Birthday with a topping of Tags-Little or Big, and finally with Happy Little Stampers August CAS challenge - Masking.

Merry Christmas

Today I found a few moments to put together a card for the 52 (Christmas) card throwdown with the theme - Gifts. I am also going to post it with the Rudolph Days Challenge for August which is Anything Goes.  I used an embossed background on kraft card with a swipe of purple on the raised areas and teamed that with a purple layer.  I stamped and coloured a 'gift' stack and finished it with a gold bow and stamped sentiment. Thanks for taking a peek

With Love

My card today is Inspired by Stacy's card below, I Copied her idea to use a die cut frame as my card base and then used part of the floral image from the PP Azalea set which I painted with Distress Ink and then fussy cut like Stacy to frame sentiment.  My card is for the monthly Power and Spark challenge at Power Poppy.  Thanks for taking a peek

Merry Christmas

My last card for today is for the ABC Christmas Card challenge - "Q" for a Quick Layout.
And a nice quick card this was - I used a stocking image I had in my leftover stash from last year which was already coloured with Distress Inks - so all I needed to do was fussy cut it, add some white gel pen highlights and mount it on a tag I found in a designer paper pack, add some tassels and a sentiment and mount it to the background....Quick and Easy. Thanks for taking a peek
