just playing again.xx

good evening all, a few just playing cards from me tonight.not feeling too tip top, am not sure if its a cold or my hayfever but i have a nose to rival rudolphs and am fed up of sneezing.never mind.lol.

this first card is going as a sample to my local craft shop and it nearly ended up in the bin.first i used stickles on the cake and the promarkers have bled into it so don`t click on the close up, plleasssssse.also i then went and dropped my inkpad on the bottom right corner hence the unplanned buttons.so products used are k&co and crafts too papers.wild rose studio image coloured with promarkers and chalked background.stickles stardust and black diamond.buttons from stash.pinkgem sentiment.

promarkers colours used are:
SKIN=ivory,blush,dusky pink,soft peach.
HAIR=vanilla,pastel yellow,mustard,sandstone.
DRESS=pink carnation,rose pink,fushia pink,mulberry.



and a sideways view.




card no2 and another disaster on this one, i stamped across the bottom of the card but stamped too high so i`ve had to put another strip of white card to cover it and started again.
products used are artemio stamp across the bottom.hero arts sentiment.black card.hero arts silhouette stamp, background done with broken china, tumbled glass ,dusty concorde distress inks.stickled moon.for the background behind the image i used the distress inks then i sprayed with water and randomly sprinkled over holographic embossing powder and dryed with my heat gun.still not happy so i used cosmic shimmer mist in silver and sprayed all over and dryed again.it really sparkles.





close up of the topper.





and a sideways.i hope you like these 2 and hopefully i will be back with more tomorrow if i don`t keep having mishaps with them that is.lol.enjoy the rest of your evenings.luv coops.xx

They are both beautiful cards, you wouldnt know you'd made mistakes just by looking at them, I know how frustrating it is though. I'm terrible for getting an inky finger print somewhere! Great work, sure they'll sell well for you.

The first image is lovely and BEAUTIFULLY COLOURED as usual, and I love the fabulous layout, so original and perfect for a birthday card! Your second card is fabulous too, great choice of colours, they look so nice together! I just love what you do with your distress inks (I am totally unable to use them like you... :-(.
