Love Life and Live It to the Full


todays card is a bit bigger than I usually do when using stamps that aren't background stamps but this stamp in itself is quite large and I decided to leave it on the larger size to keep the balance. Isn't this one a beauty.


I bought this after seeing Therese from Lost in Paper using it on a card she made. Her use of the stamp was fantastic and she only partially coloured which I also plan to do another time. If you ever want to see some stunning cards and videos nick on over and check out her blog. A very inspirational friend and like me an Aussie.



Ok back to the card, coloured with Copics, I was going for light and breezy but my lady in the back ended up in a rather dark red dress, love the colouring. Just need to learn light red for spring/summer look. Working on that. Was happy with the rest and used shimmer gel pens for the bicycle and jewellery. Did the grass on sky in pallets blue and green I had. Maybe its time to splurge and go for one of those copic spray gun thingy's. 

Anyway I am hoping you can see what I was trying to achieve here with the breeze rushing off behind them and their bike. the sentiment is with the stamped image. Finished everything off with a handful of sequins.

Thanks so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
