One stamp, two ways feature Daffodil Bunch by Stampendous - for The Scrapbook Store

I have two cards to share over on The Scrapbook Store Blog today, featuring the same gorgeous new stamp set called ‘Daffodil Bunch’ from Stampendous (which is available in the store now!).
I really wanted to let this stamp set be the star of the projects, so I left the card designs pretty simple. One was coloured with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and the other with Copic Markers.
For full instructions on how I completed these cards, and the colours I used please visit The Scrapbook Store Blog :)

Just Add Ink #285 - Colour Challenge

This week over at Just Add Ink we have a fun colour challenge for you to play along with!



I didn't have a couple of the colours, so I used my Copic markers to colour my image as closely as I could to them.

I then added some glossy accents to the centre of the flowers and some clear Wink Of Stella pen to the sentiment.



Supplies:
Stamps and Dies: My Favorite Things
Other: Copic markers, glossy accents, wink of stella

Baaah Humbug for The Scrapbook Store

I was visiting The Scrapbook Store last week, and could not go past these adorable new little Christmas stamps by Lawn Fawn! They make fun cards, and don’t involve a lot of colouring so they are also quick and easy to create. So I decided to make two. :)
For a full list of instructions and Copic colours used, be sure to pop over to The Scrapbook Store blog.

Just Add Ink #283 - Sketch Challenge



So sorry I am late with my post this week! I thought I had scheduled this one before my holiday and it appears I hadn't .. oops!  Just flew back in from Cambodia at 1.30am this morning and am just trying to catch up on everything around here :)

But better late than never right?

This week over at Just Add Ink we have a fun sketch challenge for you.


I have coloured a Clearly Besotted image with watercolour markers and used a new We R Memory Keepers dimensional embossing folder on the background.
