Welcome Little One

I love colour challenges! This card  was made for this weeks "Something Blue" challenge at Totally Gorjuss

I can't remember where the paper comes from I found it in my ever growing stash lol. The chipboard is from K&Company and has been painted with Kaiser Craft turquoise paint then misted with perfect pearls. I discovered Perfect Pearls at a craft show, really should stop going to those things they cost me a fortune! 

You put a bit of the perfect pearls in a mini mister with some water then spritz it over your work. I even put some on the flowers. Beautiful shimmery loveliness lol.

The stamp I used is from Hero Arts and was coloured with copics. I stamped and coloured 2 images then cut out the wheels and cover and used pop dots to add them to the original image for a 3-D effect. Copic colours used:
B12, B00, B21, BG0000, BG10, BG15 and W0

The other embellishments I've used are rub ons from Making Memories and Delish, Paper doilies from a local craft store and flowers I bought from the markets. 

Hoping one of the girls at work has her baby soon and if its a boy I'm all prepared!

True Friendship Needs No Words

It's been so long since I made any cards but a recent trip to Melbourne and the Kaiser Craft shop at Chadstone have re-ignited my creative side :) 

For inspiration I looked to the many challenge blogs around and discovered the All Sorts Challange Blog has a vintage themed week. When I think vintage I see lace, doilies, cloth flowers and muted colours. 

So here is my attempt at a Vintage themed card.

The papers are from the Kaiser Craft 6 1/2" Paper Pad Blae & Ivy. The Rub ons are from Kaiser Craft Pennyroyale Collection. The metal accents are from Printblocks. 

The lace is from my stash an probably purchased from an op-shop in Strathpine somewhere. The gorgeous material flower is actually a brooch and from a cute little shop at the North Pine County Markets. 

The stamp is from Molly Blooms and part of a their Christmas 2012 kit. Isn't she sweet. She is coloured with Copics. Considering I haven't used these in such a long time I am pretty happen with how this turned out. 

Hair: E13, E33, E37
Skin: E50, E51, E53
Shirt: BV23, V17
Smock: G21, G24, YG17, G09, E13
Boots: E11, E33
Heart: E04, RV34, R29
Wings: T1 and Clear Spica

Just one more shot of that beautiful flower, I love that the material looks so much like delicate petals. 
I think I might have to make another trip to the markets for more of these!
