Flutter by Butterfly ~ DT For Colourific Stamps

Hi there, my turn to blog for Colourific today, here I have used a large MDF tag.

I used watercolour card and created a washed out background using watercolour brush pens, I have then stamped on of the flowers from the A6 Moderne Flowers stamp set in various pastel shades. I've glued this onto the tag then tied twine randomly around the tag.

I have stamped out 2 butterflies from the A5 Butterflies Take Flight stamp set and water coloured them with brush markers and added some gems.

Hope you like and will have a go at making a tag yourself

Whimsy Digi Stamps ~ Daddy Lion

Oh my goodness I am in love…….. I found Whimsy Digi Stamps only a few short weeks ago, just before I went on holiday and I downloaded a few freebies to play with, I ADORE them so I went and bought a couple more too and some paper packs.

This one is a FREEBIE from their website, its Daddy Lion and a cutie he is too, I have coloured him in using alcohol markers and made my own sentiment to add to.

Hope you like hugs Aly xx

Itsy Bitsy teeny weeny……

Well after a nice recharge of the old batteries in Devon, I am back and today I was rummaging through an old box of stamps and I found this little teeny tiny set at the bottom and I thought I have to make something with them as they are so cute, so I had a play and made this little card, sometimes I overlook stamps as I think they are too small or not enough to make a decent sized card but small is beautiful as they say so here is my little 4x4 card I created.
