Ice Skate Tilda - card

Hi all, hope you are all keeping well. I cannot believe how stupid I can sometimes be. I have been watching and buying a couple of Tilda stamps of ebay I have about 8 now but could have had aload more if I remembered about Sir Stampalot and I would have saved a bit money. After watching this stamp for absolutely ages and seeing it sell for stupid monies even starting price in some cases was £25.00 I have finally bought the same from Sir Stampalot for a lot lot less. Well needless to say I be buying all my Tilda stamps of this site from now on. Guess so of us learn the hard way but never late than ever haha. This is the card I have made size is 6 by 6 backing papers from stash (blue with glitter is from Forever Friends baby collection). Tilda image coloured in with pro-markers and then finished with glitter, ribbon and snowflakes (sizzix die cuts) and gems. pro-markers used:- skin ivory, blush, dusky pink, and soft peach hair: cinammon, coco, henna and putty Jeans:- China Blue, Powder blue and pastel blue Top, hat and Scarf: cocktail pink and pastel pink ice skates:- ice gray, 4, 3, and 1

First Time using Distress ink - LOTV Big Start card

Hello all sorry it has been a while but still trying to juggle everything getting there now I think. I have now started a Health and Social course on a Wednesday Chloe is nearly 5 so back to the world of work I need to go I think especially to help fund my crafting addiction. Managing to get a few orders for cards but I still am spending more on crafting goodies (which I know is not a good thing) but as I do not drink or smoke then why not it is what I enjoy. Well the first card I have made is size 6 by 6 using LOTV big Star stamped image (which was bought for my birthday present). Backing papers are from stash, stamped image is coloured in using pro-markers, then edge of hat and pom pom with glitter and I finished by distress in the edges of image with Tim Holtz distress ink - tea dye. Flowers are made with petal pairs punch which I have finished with a gem in the centre. pro-makers used:- Bear: - coco, cinammon, and tan star:- gold and yellow Hat: - red
