Spring Soft


I want to share a recent card I've made using Sweet Poppy Stencils. I wanted to make something in soft colours and I'm quite pleased how it came out. 

I've used a few stencils in the background, they are the oval, heart, narrow triangle and circle.
I've used distress ink Tumbled Glass, Spun Sugar, Scattered straw.


The the main image is the Indian Moth stencil. I've then used a shade darker distress ink so that it stands out from the background but not to strong.

Beside the Sea


For this weeks challenge at The Polkadoodles challenge I have made a card with summer in mind.



The image is from the Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles collection called Float away. I have coloured it with Copic pens. The back ground papers are from Winnie Special Moments paper heaven 4. The sentiment is from Winnie Celebrations 3.



The waves at the bottom are die cut. I used wooden tiles, coloured to match, to make the word sea. Finally 2 sea related charms with a bit of thread tied to the compass.
I think we all feel we need to be by the sea at the moment.
