Bright colours rock!

One of my favourite things is to made a master board to use for backgrounds, or instead of pretty papers.

This is one I've gone to several times, it's really bright and colourful, and uses a whole load of Stampin' Up stamps.

I used a section in this 80th birthday card, now....what to do with the rest of it?

Dogs and wolves

Another commission to show you- this time the brief was to include doggies and Wolves football club colours.....oh and the birthday boy's age- can you spot how old he is?

Gotta get better with my photo taking.....

A commission

I've had a number of commissioned cards lately, which are often a dilemma. It's all about creating something to the taste of the recipient, and quite often that's someone I've never met! 

This one came out nicely, and oh that's an old stamp, but it paper pieces beautifully. I'm also now sold on pre-tied bows. It's a total faff avoided!

Twisted firestarter

I think I was channeling the Prodigy when this card happened.....

The heart is painted through a stencil.

How handsome!

I'm entering this into Papertake's Black and white and one other colour challenge

Ghouls, ghouls, ghouls!

Oh my it's been a while..... ah well, crashing on.....

I've been taking part in a series of ATC swaps over on the Stampotique Facebook page, ooh I've had some fabulous swaps!!!

Here's a couple of mine, for last month's Naughty theme.

The backgrounds are zentangled, which I love to do. 

I'm hoping these will also fit in with the Stampotique Designers challenge, which is Ghouls and Goblins and all things Halloween!

My black heart

Yay, splodging paint is fun!

I'm not sure Hunk really has a black heart, he's too horribly cute.

The challenge at A Step in the Dark is anything goes- but on the darker side...... hope this fits.

Rain, rain, go away....

A card or two to show you today. Both made with a Stamping Bella image.

Coloured with Promarkers, and lots of added sparkle :)

Love the little snail. I'm entering this card into the Papertake weekly challenge- Spots and Dots and the That's Crafty Stamping ground challenge

I'm entering this second version into the I love Promarkers challenge- Anything goes and the Simon Says Wednesday challenge which is Summer- and what says a British summer better than flowers and wellies?
