Papertake weekly challenge

I picked up this stamp when I was over at the Hobby House a couple of weeks ago, I've liked it for a while so it was an easy choice. It is Daisy, a Sugar Nellie design by Elisabeth Bell and the size of it seemed to be made for this sketch.
I've stamped it in Black stazon onto some watercolour paper and decided to give my aquatones an airing to colour it in although I used a stampin up watercolour wonder for the skin tone.
Papers are Quite Contrary by My Minds Eye, all the other bits and bobs are from my collection and the base card is as ever by Craftwork Cards although this one is softies for a change.

Penny Black Saturday Week 108

The challenge at Penny Black Saturday this week is Red White and Blue. Most of my Penny Black stamps are away with a crafting friend at the moment but my clear sets stayed at home. I have used images from the hugs set to make up the main image and coloured then in using Marvy le Plume pens and added sparkle to the hearts with a copic spica pen. Papers are from the Anglomania collection by Craftwork cards as is all the cardstock I have used, brads are Queen & Co and flowers are from my collection.

Lili of the Valley Challenge

The Lily of the Valley challenge this time around is a sketch challenge. This is the first time I have entered this challenge but had to make a card for someone at work and so thought I would combine the two and enjoyed the play.
The main image is by Lily of the Valley and is stamped onto the digital super smooth cardstock by craftwork cards and coloured with promarkers. Sentiment is from a 99p dovecraft set.
Papers are basic grey kioshi, flowers are prima and the pearl brads were bought form the hobby house when we were over in Tetney a couple of weeks ago. Ribbon is from my collection.

More Christmas

I made this card thee other week when I was over at Peggys, I have a few cards ready with the paper squares on now but need to get cracking with the stamping and colouring.
I really like this Penny Black Santa as he looks quite European and I decided to colour hiom in blue to match the papers, I think he is traditionally in blue in some countries but don't quote me on that , it is a "think".
Papers are still from that Dovecraft pack, image is stamped onto Craftwork Cards Cardstock, I need to stock up actually, and coloured with promarkers. Sentiment and base card are also Craftwork Cards.

Card for the other half

Martin ended up with a very simple card this year. It is 9 squares of Papermania Hampton papers edged with brown ink mouted onto a Craftwork Cards back to basics size 6 card. Then I have stamped a Lili of the Valley image and coloured it with Promarkers to match. He likes this kind of colour scheme so was happy with the result. Sentiment is by Craftwork cards
