At long last.. a few cards to share!

Hello all...

I can at last share a couple of cards.. for those that visit regularly, I apologise for not blogging or putting piccies up on most days. Things here have been really hectic as you know. I am at last seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, and only have around 10 more commissioned projects to complete! All with word by word instructions too.. lol.. oh well, I'm not complaining.. I absolutely love my job.

Anyway.. on with the cards. As you know, yesterday I went to buy some copic markers, and here is my first card I've done with them.

I nipped over to Kathy's sketch file and decided to use this week's challenge sketch. This was the sketch.

And this is my card..

I used my vase of flowers stamp (the stamp is Magenta ). I stamped three times and then used my XCut circle cutter to cut out the circles. I've decoupaged some of the flowers and added a gem to the centre, and a little bit of glitter.

This is a close up of the background. I used a versamark inkpad and stamped the little flowers, which are from Clare Curd's Signature Range and ran over it with a brayer and inks.

And just another little close up of the decoupaged flowers.

I must admit.. I'm loving my new copics! I'm thinking I'm needing a few more!!

Now my second card was one I made a few days ago. I found the stamped images in a little tub in my studio, so pulled it out, coloured it with Whispers Brush markers and added a little bit of glitter. I'll have to check who's papers they are.. I think I know, but need to make sure.

That's it for now, thanks for visiting .. I hopefully will be back later with a few more.. xx
