August Rudolph Days

Well I'm rather late to the Rudolph Days challenge this month as I've been away with my Daughter and Grandsons. We had a wonderful time with glorious weather returning on Tuesday after the Bank Holiday rush. My washing and ironing is now done and put away,so time for my card for this month. I used a Penny Black stamp for the background, the stag is a new stamp from Crafters Companion and the sentiment from Chocolate Baroque. I first stamped the background then masking with paper used distress inks to colour. Then I stamped the stag and sentiment before finishing with some glitter and a white posca pen for the snowflakes. Now as you know I never just stop at one card, below are a further six (should have been seven but one fell victim to fingerprints).

Thank you for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

With Wings

Well at the beginning of the year I had hoped to be a better blogger this year, but I've not managed it this past month. Lots of reasons why, my having a bad bout of tonsillitis being one of them. However I am now recovered and showing today the card that I've made to enter into the Stamping Sensations Challenge this month which is Things With Wings. My first reaction was to reach for the Lavinia stamps, but I stopped myself as that was too easy, next was to go for one of the many bird stamps that I have, but then I spotted this Pink Ink stamp that was released earlier this month (that I had to have) and decided to use her instead. Yesterday was the perfect day to stamp and get inky, while it poured down outside I was nice and dry having some me time. I don't very often water colour but for this stamp I decided to go with that for a change, I'm quite pleased with the results. Now I have to go and pack a suitcase, I'm away for just over a week with my Daughter and Grandsons, here's hoping the weather is going to be nicer in Devon next week.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
