I used paper from DCWV stamped with a paperbagstudio stamp in black stazon. I then stamped the daisy on glittery white paper and cut it out and attached it with a glittery brad. I then stamped a small piece of the same DCWV paper with lots of different quotes and matted it all on mirri card. The final touch to the card was some gold thread.


I used a quote sticker which says 'Children are poor man's riches' which I thought would make a lovely New Baby card. I coloured the Tilda image in with pencils and arranged assorted panels
around the image. I did some hand stitching on the card and doodling then added Primas and brads for decoration.

I stamped on a tag with Versamark and clear embossed some words, then rubbed over the tag with Adirondack Raisin ink pad. I then stamped a Penny Black quote and edged it with gold Krylon, attached a couple of brads and added it to the tag, which I also edged with gold Krylon.

Backing paper from Paper Cellar - Men's. The image is a download from Cuddly Buddly - Local lads. Round Quote is from K&Co. Chalks to colour the background behind the image.

Gothic Arch
I used pink, lilac and black cardstock and gold mirri card for my arch. I added lots of pink buttons, purple eyelets and purple & gold ribbon. The image & quote I used are by Heatwarming vintage cuts. The Quote reads: "Love can split the heavens in two and let the face of god shine through." The paper was made using a handwriting background stamp and then distressing with my tattered rose ink pad. I added a purple prima and I drew freehand gold detail with liquid pearls I also added a few sequins.

I was eager to use something that I bought at the NEC on Friday so I made an aperture card with some of this gorgeously fine fabric placed over the aperture. The stamps are a Serendipity cling set called 'Adirondack Chair' and I have water coloured the image with Lyra Wax Crayons. I have embossed some large spots with my crop-o-dile, stamped the quote underneath using Versafine Sepia and embellished with a couple of stamped and water coloured butterflies.
