Orange Delight

I made this orangey card for my closest friend's daughter recently....I used some really delish coloured papers from First Edition.  This beautiful digi stamps was so lovely to colour in, I really enjoyed using my prisma pencil...this was only the second time I'd used them.
Here's a close-up piccie - wow isn't she gorgeous.

Here's what I used:
Prisma Pencils and Sansdor
Digi image: Crafts and Me -  'Cali Girl'
Paper: First Edition - Boho Chic
Dies: Cheery Lyn - B117 Fanciful Flourish, Tim Holtz 'Tattered Florals', Flower Punch

Hope you like it. I'd love it if you leave me a comment.

Oriental Bliss

I made this A5 card a few weeks ago for my mum to send to my nephew's girlfriend - Kat, to celebrate her birthday.

The colours were inspired by the beautiful paper I used from First Edition's 'Summer Breeze' pad. The photo doesn't do it justice really - I'd buy the whole collection if I could. I enjoyed making this card, but it took quite a bit of working out to get the scene right and what and where mask. I'm happy with the final product and hopefully Kat was!

Here's what I used:
Stamp Set: Docrafts Tulip 'Oriental Garden'
Paper/card: First Edition's 'Summer Breeze', Orange, Teal, Glitter cardstock
Promarkers/Flexmarkers: Aquamarine, Glacier Blue, Honeydew, Duck Egg, Apple, Orange, Forest Green
Copic: YR02, E95, E00, E11, E38, E37, 100, ER32
Dies: Cheery Lynn Design Fanciful Flourish B117, Marianne Designs Small Poinsettia
Glitter, computer generated sentiment, Tumbled Glass Distressed Ink

Hope you like it.
