looking good.

good evening all.another glorious day and england also got through to the final 16.managed to listen to some of the match on the radio at work.so on to tonights card, not made for any reason other than i fancied using these papers and yet again a whiff of joy image.hopefully my new woj stamps will be here soon.

products used are cream card.all papers from the dcwv latte paper pad.papermania gems.tim holtz tattered florals die.fabric.pearl brad.distress ink in rock candy.whiff of joy image coloured with promarkers.wild rose studio sentiment.frayed burlap distress ink.

promarkers used are
skin=ivory,blush,dusky pink,sunkissed pink.
hair=vanilla,sandstone,caramel,cocoa.
dress=cornflower,china blue,midnight blue.
shoes-cocoa,chestnut.

the flower was made with the tim holtz die using 2 large,1 medium and 1 small flower.i used old jeans and brown cords from my wardrobe clearout.i wanted the bigger flowers to be more rigid though as the material was too floppy :) so i coated them in ditress paint in rock candy and dried them with my heat gun which also happened to curl the petals which i think gives it a nice effect.

and a sideways view.
thankyou so much for popping by and for all your lovely comments.i am gradually catching up on my commnenting so if i haven`t visited you yet , i will be soon.
enjoy the rest of your evening,
luv coops.xxxxx

Oh Coops! I LOVE your flower...how clever! Make sure you don't get carried away cutting up your clothes. I imagine crafting in the nuddy could be quite dangerous lol! You might have persuaded me to get this die, though I am trying to be good. bfn xx Jenny xx

Hi Coops, as always a gorgeous card. Pleased that the weather is glorious back in the UK. How many new stamps did you order and have you seen the sneak peaks of the new designs. Just wish I was a better stamper oh well I just live in hope that they start doing dig stamps. Amanda xx

Hi Coops

Isn't it great to make a card for no other reason than because you want too .. .. my kind of crafting.

Love your card. The image is so lovely and beautifully coloured and that flower is stunning. I hope you aren't going to tempt me into wanting to buy that flower die!!!

Love Jules xx

p.s. If I have an orange jelly bean today will that count as one of my 5 a day fruit and veg?
