Managed to get another couple of cards made this weekend (I did spend ages cleaning the kitchen - including the oven so allowed myself time to play too!).This first one is a cute Penny Black image coloured with Pro-markers using the colours from the inspirational photo over at Passion for Pro-markers.
Inside the card I've added a sentiment to complete the phrase Love Is...This is the challenge criteria over at Penny Black Saturday (along with using a Penny Black image of course). Friends are so important and sharing special moments like birthdays is priceless (as the advert says!), but I don't often make cards with messages aimed specifically at friends (tend to do just general birthday) so it was nice that the challenge over at Totally Papercrafts prompted me to make this on.
My second card also used colours from an inspirational photo - this time from The Playdate Cafe. I've used more Penny Black stamps - paisley swirl to make the background papers and also the sentiment, it's a really useful stamp as it is suitable for so many occasions. I've used scraps of really floaty material (not sure what it's called) and Tim's Holtz Tattered Florals Die to make the flowers.
