Three cards a little bit of Copic colouring and a bit of Watercolour

This was a quick card, perfect for a little girls birthday.
The image is a digital one from All Dressed Up and she is free
but remember thats for your personal use and not for resale.

After colouring with Copics I added a bit of pink glitter with a glitter
gel pen. She is such a sweetie, ohh and there are other images too. And she
sells lots more, so cute images.

I have done one of my favourite things at the moment, adding gold foil
washi tape down each side of the card and pink fun foam to lift the
image panel slightly. Did a bit of light blending with distress ink on the bottom
half of the sentiment. Added a gem for the dot on the 'i' and a few more
for a bit of sparkle and all ready to go.

This beautiful stamped image was a gift from my wonderful friend
TaeEun who sent me an amazing birthday card (that I can't share just yet) and
some stamped and embossed images.

It's so beautiful I of course had to order one for myself. TaeEun has silver embossed
I have watercoloured with my Zigs and love the colour I have achieved with this beautiful flower.
So easy to watercolour. The stamp is from The Ton and called Dearest Peony .

Those silver embossed leaves behind the flower are all part of the stamped
image. I was going to add some splatter and Wink of Stella but then decided to leave as
it is and use as a Sympathy card as I really don't have many of them. I had
cut the panel a bit crooked so needed to cut it down more. I didn't want to have a narrow
card so added silver dot washi to each side so I didn't have to cut the card base
too thin. Done and love it.

So this is another stamp from the Ton and its called 'Dahlia Close Up' 
cling background stamp. Its amazing. Ohhh my goodness I have white embossed,
gold embossed, silver embossed on copic cardstock, watercolour paper, multimedia
paper and vellum - thats why I get behind in using my stamps. Just stamping and embossing
builds mountains in my house.

Here is it stamped and silver embossed on multimedia paper then watercoloured
with Zigs and brush and lots of water, just kept adding more colour and water until I
liked what I saw.

Its soft and pretty, I love it. I finished it off by cutting the sentiment out of the centre,
then again from white fun-foam and finally did what Therese is always recommending and left
the foam die cut in the original layer of foam, added dots of glue to the letters and added the painted version of the diecut. Perfect way to line it up and have the layers straight (the foam stretches out of
shape and can be hard to glue to another layer. This takes 'the hard' right out. Thank you Therese.

Added the die cut layer back into the card front, then added a bit of sparkle with 'Wink of
Stella' then also added some Glossy Accents. I think it stands out better IRL than here.

There you go, three cards after a bit of absence so hopefully I am back into the flow.


I was going to say the Sympathy card but I did all three
for that so will go with 'You Can Do Anything'
which is a flower and its watercoloured.

Huge celebrations are on at AAA Cards with their 3rd
Birthday. There are prizes and a blog hop and lots more.
I am going to enter 'Best Wishes' and hope its CAS enough.

I have gone without the Topping as even though
she is a sweetie I don't think thats what they mean by
sweet. Best Wishes Ballerina.
