Another stamp from Fizzy Moon to share and another attempt at practicing with my distress markers.  I love the soft effect that they give which I can't seem to achieve with Copics.

If anyone has any tips on using them, let me know.

Have a good one.

Here it is, the second Hanglar stamp I've managed to get my hands on - how cute is this little guy!

He is coloured with Prisma pencils and Copic Markers.  I use a distress ink pad for the edges of the background paper and I was a little heavy handed with it as you can see  but as it didn't look terrible so I still used it. Waste not want not.

The frame is from a new set from Spellbinders which I love using.

See what I mean about the heavy handed edging!  Hey ho.  I am amazed I managed to get a card done today, we've been moving furniture around all morning whilst we have new carpets fitted in the lounge and hallway. Good excuse for a bit of spring/summer cleaning whilst we were at it and I am pretty knacked now.  BUT I can't not craft for too long so I squeezed this one in this evening.

Hope you're having a great bank holiday weekend.  Must confess my pillow is beckoning - is it really only 8 o'clock!

Its doll time again.  I think this is one of my fav's to date.

I started to knit some hats and this is the first one I've used so far.

Time to ring the changes on the hair styles too. I made the bag from some black felt.

The dress was really easy to make  and the pink socks and boots just finish her off.

The jacket is always the thing that takes the longest.

I really need to start selling these before they entirely take over my craft room! so I've opened a shop on Etsy. If anyone is interested, you can have a look here.

Hey all

I have just discovered Hanglar stamps (similar to Magonlia) from scanning the web for some new stamps to buy.  They are really cute but really hard to get hold off as they have previously only been sold in Sweden. Their website says that they will now send worldwide but I couldn't get the pages to loads so gave up. Luckily I found a couple for sale on eBay and this is one of them.

I used my Prisma pencils to colour her in.

Got another stamp to play with but NEED more - another search on eBay I think!

I've just bought myself some Distress Markers and was keen to give them a go.  This was my first attempt and I am pretty pleased with myself actually!  They are really nice to work with and blend well although I certainly need more practice but so far, so good.

The image is from a collection of stamps I also bought from Fizzy Moon.

Men cards are not my forte really, I find them quite hard.  I always want to add a flower or something girlie, I just can't help it but I forced myself in this case.

Hope you're having a great Sunday.  Catch up with you soon.

Another doll creation to share today.

Furry boots... too cute.

Sorry for the quality of the pics!

The jacket was a bit of a labour of love, it took ages to get all those straight lines but it was worth it.

A card of some kind next time, I promised!
