Make a Difference

There isn't much I can say about this stamp image. I have had it for years and years and while doing the 30 Day colouring challenge 

I can't even tell you how I coloured it, as it was before I started to write down what I am using.

What I can tell you is the embossing folder!

It is stunning!! It is the 3D Texture Fades Embossing Folder called Botanicals. You can find it here. I imprinted one other cardstock panel can't wait to use it.

The other thing I can tell you is the sentiment stamp. It is Stampin Up's Artfully Aware.

One last close up for you...

Thanks for stopping by...

Full speed ahead

Hellooo again, life has been crazy. I am Matron of Honour in my friends upcoming wedding and life is busy helping her not to lose her mind! ( her brother had a close call with Chicken Pox!!) Thank goodness it is all better!

All it is all over and I'm trying to get my juices going again. Leave a comment about how you get the mojo happening again.

Today I have a card using the Uniquely Creative stamp set 'Hello Lovely' I had another vision for this card but decided it was not going to work as well and went with a more simpler option.

The images were coloured over a couple of days with the The Daily Markers 30 day coloring challenge on Instagram.

Ive sponged the background with Ground Espresso, Faded  Jeans and Tumbled Glass and I did my usually and splatter a little bit of water and waited a little bit and dabbed off. It also adds to the 'shelter from the storm' vibe.
Looking closer to the characters, the colouring looks abit odd but this is because of wanting the card to look strongly lit from behind.

Now confession....

The shelter isn't a stamp... I drew it! :O I wanted a simple shelter that my boy could stand under and of course I had nothing that big. I've been watching the awesome Sandy Allnock lately so.... I winged it!

I'm a little bit proud of it! I basically drew it and it doesn't matter if it is abit NQR, it's wood!
Copics for wood
