This blog was created to act as a record of the cards and other projects that I have made. It is for both my own reference and to help inspire anyone who wants to take a look.

I'd love it if you'd leave me a comment so that I know what you think of my projects and that you've been to visit!

Anyone can comment, even those who don't have a blog. (Just look for the word 'Comments' under the three little pictures at the end of each post). Readers without a blog can add an anonymous comment, but please leave your name (and docrafts username if applicable) so I know who you are!

Slideshows of all the cards I've uploaded to my blog can be found at the bottom of the page.

Pink, Brown and Orange Love Notes

I love this image and can't believe this is the first time I've used it!! Naughty me!! I've had it for a while now too!

The Love Notes image, from Pollycraft, was stamped using Versafine Onyx Black archival pigment ink and coloured with Copic sketch markers:
  • Hair: E13, E35, E39
  • Skin: E00, E21, E51, R20
  • Eyes: YG07, E40
  • Dress: YR02, RV06
  • Socks/Wings: YR02
  • Shoes: E35, E39, YR02
  • Flowers/Grass: YG07, G05, YR02, RV06
  • Sign: YR02, E11, E00
The sentiment was then added using the sentiment stamp from the same stamp set using Versafine Vintage Sepia archival pigment ink.

The image was die cut using an oval Nestabilities die and matted onto a big scalloped oval die cut from pink card. A panel of the pink, brown and orange multi-stripe paper, from the DCWV Glitter Mat Stack, was matted onto orange card and onto the card blank.

A strip of the pink, brown and orange retro squares paper, from the same paper pad, was also matted onto the orange card and adhered across the larger mat.

Pink and orange Sakura Stardust pens were then used to highlight the wings, hearts, flowers and sentiment. The Papermania Snow White gel pen was used to highlight her eyes, cheeks and detail on her dress.

The edge of the card blank was punched using the XCut scalloped border punch and coloured with the Copic markers. Pink faux gems were added in each of the scallops and in each of the hearts.

The inside of the card was also decorated with a strip of the multi-stripe paper adhered to a strip of the orange card. The edge of the orange card was punched with the scallop border punch and added on the inside of the card behind the scallop border.

Here are the challenges that I am entering this card into:
