Be Yourself. ..

Hi crafters xx

I'm back today with another make over on the
Buzzy Goings On At Bee Crafty Blog 

I thought I'd have a play with my beautiful Mandala Inkable and combine it with the fabulous Skull stamp! And what a combination. .I think they really work well together

Also used
Pixie Powders
Inspirational Words 2 - Be Yourself
Black onyx versafine
Distress Oxides
Clear embossing powder


I made a background using my Pixie Powders and left it to dry naturally
I inked through the Mandala 3 Inkable with Wild Honey, Squeezed Lemonade and Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxides 
The skull was stamped in black onyx versafine and heat embossed with clear embossing powder  
I randomly stamped the splatter part of the skull stamp, to add effect, around my Pixie Powders background  
The sentiment was stamped in black onyx versafine and again inked around the edges using the splatters from the skull
I assembled the card to complete 

I hope you like the combination of the pretty Mandala with the fabulous Skull!! 

I'll see you all next Thursday with another Bee Crafty blog

Walking Tiger

Hello everyone xx

How are you all today?
I'm back on the Buzzy Goings On At Bee Crafty Blog with another make using the stunningly gorgeous Scenery Animal Tiger stamp. ..love it.
I've  chosen to combine it with the beautiful WildFlowers and create one of my favourite front/back stamped cards

Also used:
Wildflowers
Everyday Sentiments
Distress Oxides 
Versafine
Kuretake clean colour pens




I masked off the bottom of the opened card blank before stamping my Tiger in Vintage Sepia versafine 
I coloured him in lightly with my kuretake clean colour pens 
I then stamped a mixture of Wildflowers, first and second generation,  in various Distress Oxides 
I ensured I stamped over my Tiger as I wanted to create the effect of him walking through them....
I stamped the sentiment in Vintage Sepia versafine 
Having masked of the birds from several of the Scenery Animals stamps,  I stamped them n Smokey Grey versafine to complete 

Many thanks for popping by. ..I hope you liked today's make

Flamin-go together

Hello everyone xx

Thought I'd share a card I made using stamps from Bumbleberry Papercrafts 
I used the adorable Flamingo Together stamp set by Lawn Fawn

Also used:
Smokey Grey
Distress Oxide : Worn Lipstick



This is such a fun card and so easy to make.
Stamp the flamingos randomly over a piece of card,  in Smokey Grey versafine
Then turn your stamps over on the acrylic block...ink them up with Worn Lipstick DO, spritz with water, then stamp the solid colour over the opposite stamped flamingo!  This enables you to create a block watercolour effect
Stamp 2 flamingos on seperate card,  colour in with the Worn Lipstick DO and a water brush. Cut out and adhere with foam pads

Many thanks for popping by

Hope, balance and good luck

Hi everyone xx

Hope you're all well and have a lovely day planned xx

I thought I'd share a card I made using one of my favourite collection of stamps. The Circles of Light Collection by Stamps By Me. ..such unique, beautiful and versatile stamps.
For this sample I used the gorgeous Feather

Also used:

Distress Oxides : Wilted Violet, Iced Spruce
Versafine : Smokey Grey and Black onyx
Feather and heart stencils from my crafty stash
Black micron pen



I blended the Wilted Violet DO through a large heart stencil and then through a small hearts stencil
The gorgeous Feather was stamped in black onyx versafine
I added some depth by blending Iced Spruce DO lightly through a feather stencil
I drew round the heart with a black micron pen and added a few dots, to tie it in with the stamped image
Once dry I matted it onto black card and then adhered to card blank

 I hope you enjoyed today's make and love this gorgeous Feather stamp as much as I do

Thankyou for stopping by
