Stampendous Daisy Mix - for The Scrapbook Store

I have some bright floral cards to share with you this week over on The Scrapbook Store Blog featuring the Stampendous Cling Daisy Mix stamp set, coloured with Copic markers.daisy mix both cards
There was a bit of masking involved in putting these cards together, but thanks to the Misti stamping tool and the fact that these stamps come with their own durable masks it really was very quick and easy.

Just Add Ink challenge #298 - Just Add 'V'

This week over at Just Add Ink we have a fun challenge for you! We want you to add something that starts with 'V'. I decided to go with the obvious choice of Valentine's Day since it is only a few days away! My hubby had to fly out to Africa this week and won't be here for the special day so I snuck this card into his suitcase before he left.

I stamped the heart onto watercolour paper with Versamark ink and heat set it with white embossing powder and then water coloured it. 

Stamps: Heart from Neat & Tangled, sentiment from Technique Tuesday
Other: MFT Stamps dienamics, sequins
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black Ink
