A Good Egg??

Afternoon all

Just a quick wee post from me today, I'm working away finishing orders plus running around after a sick dog! Poor pup has been sick and is now lying about feeling sorry for herself! But thats what happens when you eat tissues!

Anyways, I know Easter has been but I wanted to share this wee card with you all

Its a a fun shaped OVAL card! 
Ok ok its an egg shape heeee but it could suit any season not just Easter!

I used the stunning Centura Pearl Card Stock Hint of Sliver cardstock embossed with the Embossalicious 'Bird Houses' folder, with Distress Ink Mustard Seed to bring out the yellow. I then used some Core'dinations card stock and cut out a Die'sire 'Camelia' flower with the small die and  the 'Floral Corners' stamp set coloured with Spectrum Noir markers

Hope you like my wee card and will visit Crafters Companion for more inspiration!

Monochrome Colouring xx

Hello all

Well what happened to that sun yesterday??? Just as I was saying to you all was beautiful here the skies turned grey and exploded with rain and hail! Typical Scottish weather I suppose!

I wanted to share a wee Die'sire Design Team project with you today, as I've been practising with the Spectrum Noirs and really need all you lovely peeps advice!

So I took a one of my Hannah Lynn Digis and coloured her to my best ability with the Spectrum Noirs
This was my 3rd attempt but I was happy with it (as I could be), I only find the skin tones a struggle but the colouring itself was easy! Thats from a PROMARKER lover too!

Here's my finished card

I used the stunning Die'sire Cloud Embossing Folder which I inked a bit with a silver metallic ink that I've had in my stash for a while! The flowers are the delish quilling dies Die'sire Sunflower Small and Sunflower Large and the Leaf 2 die before finishing the flowers with some ink and card candi. I used  DCWV Papers that I had in my stash and the sentiment is from the freebie with this months Crafters Inspiration mag!
