spring has sprung

Finally I can feel like spring is here. Today the sun has come out-it is actually warm-ish and after visiting the opening of a new scrapbooking store I was inspired to rework this card which I have been thinking about all week-only to completely change my idea when it came to actually making it. I have just started using Copics and the Tilda is coloured with them. The background circle was cut using Spellbinders and the stamps and inks are Stampin' Up. I've sponged the sky, in Bashful Blue, the sun in So Saffron and the flowers were inked using Regal Rose and Certainly Celery markers. The birds were done in the same Copics as Tilda. Papers are Basic Grey Kioshi and cardstock is Stampin' Up Regal Rose. The letter beads were from my stash and the ribbon came from the scrapbook shop today. I am entering this in Bizzy Becs challenge Cheerfully Spring.

I made top 5

What a lovely surprise-my vintage page that I entered into the Creataliciouschallenge made the top 5. This has spurred me on to the next challenge-a colour one. You can view the requirements here.
Some of you have had trouble commenting so I have altered the settings and hope this works.

mermaid tilda

I've been dying to make a card with my new mermaid Tilda and Seahorse stamps and so here she is. I stamped Tilda on Blending Card and coloured her flesh with Copics. The tail was stamped onto a piece of card stock that had been sprayed with Starburst Sprays and Glimmer Mist. It was then cut out and stuck to the main image. Seahorse was stamped on card stock also coloured with the sprays. Both were highlighted with Kindyglitz. I used Spellbinders for the ovals. Paper is from Basic Grey Archaic 6x6pad. I cut the sections from the design to resemble seaweed and bubbles-highlighting some with Dimensional Magic. Pearls are from Kaiser. The golden shells are made using Liquid Pearls.

roses birthday card

This is a waterfall card I've been wanting to try for a while and my sister's birthday created the opportunity. I've adapted the measurements from those on the resources section at Splitcoaststampers. The photo's of roses are my own. Cardstock is Stampin Up Mellow Moss with the photo's mounted on Whisper White and the paper is from my stash. The tassel is from Spotlight.
