Sketch Saturday & Spring Milly
My entry for this weeks Sketch Saturday following Jo's sketch. I have used my new stamps Spring Milly and her little cat Lily. These will be avalable to buy from Pink Gem Designs from 15th January
The image has been coloured with Tim Holtz Distress Ink and Stickles Glitter Glue
CS - Coredinations
Hero Arts sentiment stamp
Cuttlebug - Nestabilities and Martha Stewart Doily Punch
I just have to mention the fab service I recieved from Dies To Die For. I ordered the Martha Stewart Punch late on Friday afternoon and yesterday morning (Sat) it arrived! How's that for service? I just love this punch as it cuts easily through card stock unlike my other border punches which are very hard work on anything other than paper. I am sure you all know what I am talking about lol!

From January 15th there will be a selection of Max & Milly stamps available to buy from Pink Gem Designs. There will be 10 stamps...some new designs.....and some old favorites.

Papertake Weekly Challenge
This is my entry for this weeks Papertake Weekly Challenge. The Challenge this week is "Seeing Spots" You have to make a card using spots,dots or circles. The image I have used is my new Fox Cub stamp which is available to order from our spring releases over at Pink Gem Designs.
Anyone who visits my blog regulary will know my favorite colouring medium at the moment is Tim Holtz Distress Inks which I apply with a water brush. Another lady who likes to use distress inks to watercolour is the very talented Christine Dark. I just love the smokey backgrounds she adds to her stamp images. Christine has kindly made a video and posted it on her blog to show how she acheives her beautiful works of art. I decided after watching the video to have a go myself and above is the result! It's not too bad for a first attempt but I will need lots of practice before I reach Christines standard. X
