A little blue fairy

 Hi all, just popping on to add this one as I forgot to do it earlier in the week.  I'm in no form for crafting at the minute as I have a lovely tooth abscess. Which is no fun. Whatsoever.  Hopefully the meds will kick in soon and then a visit to the dentist to look forward to on Friday.

I've been shopping at Creative-Depot again, this lovely little girl was in a set that I'm sure you will see more of.  The circular stencil is from them too and I love it!  I moved it just a touch to add in some clear glossy texture paste over the inked bits.  Not sure if I'll add a sentiment or not, I quite like it as it is.

And a wee close up of that stencil effect...

Mother's Day

 Hi all!  Well it's been a weekend of events ... St Patrick's Day on Friday (free day off work yey!), Ireland winning the Six Nations on Saturday, and Mother's Day today!  So this is Mum's card using this cutie from Penny Black.  She has a fabulous rose garden so this image is actually pretty perfect for her as she does spend all summer watering them!  Coloured with polychromos and clear gloss added to the watering can.

And here's a wee photo of my lovely mum with her roses...

Easter Bunny

 Hi all!  I've a couple of Easter cards to share this evening, using this cute bunny from Creative Depot.  I inked up the background, added a fancy die cut, a few metallic paint splatters, and some blue and gold sequin discs.  The bunny is popped up on foam pads, sparkle added to his bow and clear gloss to the carrot.

As you like it - freestyle or stencil background - well, it kinda depends!  If I'm layering up as I've done here, I'll use a plain-ish inked background.

I've been really struggling with my mojo  so I've been going back to basics, practising my colouring and just casing other cards.  This one was inspired from a card Simon Says Stamp had on their Facebook page (here's the link in case you want to see Yana's fab original), so I'm just sharing here to keep a record of it but not entering into any challenges..
