Pretty Milly

A sample card made with my Pretty Milly stamp which is one of the new releases from Pink Gem Designs. Milly has been coloured with Ciao Copic Markers. Her dress has been paper pieced
using the background paper which is from Pink Petticoats new Ice Cream Swirls mini download. I think it is lovely and it comes in lots of delicate shades. You can have it with white or cream, this is the white. I have kept the card fairly plain as I think the image speaks for itself. I have used Prima flowers with Craftwork Cards ice gem centres.......I am just loving these at the moment....they go on everything!

Flowery Mimi

My second easter card ......... I don't usualy make two cards in one day!
I have used my Flowery Mimi stamp and Easter Wishes stamp which are both available from Pink Gem Designs. I have kept the card quite plain again and coloured the image with Ciao Copic Markers. I managed to keep off the glamour dust this time though lol! Prima flower with Doodlebug velvet brad.X

Cute Card Thursday - Citrus Colours

My entry to this weeks Cute Card Thursday and the theme this week is Citrus Colours. I have used my Bunny Milly stamp which is available from Pink Gem Designs. I have kept the card fairly plain because 1) I didn't want to cover the lovely paper I got from Funky Fairys Papercrafts (there is a sale on at the mo BTW!) & 2) I wanted to show that a nicely coloured image mounted on a card doesn't need lots of embellishments and patterned papers to make an impact!
The image has been coloured with Ciao Copic Markers. I left Milly's bunny suit white and added glamour dust for a sparkly effect! The flower is by Prima and the brad is one of the doodle bug crushed velvet( I just love these!)
