Almost Halloween....

Hi everyone, just popping in today to share a card made using Blue Butterfly Digital Stamps which are available in the store.

In the spirit of Halloween,  which is just around the corner,  I made this shaker card for
a friend whose birthday falls on that day.  I had fun playing with a different skin colours as I wanted something ghoulish looking.  In the end I  came up with this greenish colour and am quite
happy with the end result.  She has been coloured using Copics.







I have used the following

Blue Butterfly Digital Stamp - Candra Goth  Girl
Paper Roses Die - Scalloped Rectangle Frame
Tim Holtz Sizzix Thinlits - Celebrate
Halloween Confetti - Coles Supermarket
Copic Markers




Bizzy Becs Card Kits are back in stock  together with  a selection of envelopes to suit different card sizes, check them out here....

Shop 'til you drop...

Hi everyone.

Wow what a day we are having.

 The weather in Perth today has been crazy wild.  It has been cold,  with very strong winds and heavy rain.  Trees down and lots of houses without power. 

So it has been a great day to stay inside and have a play with a newly acquired stampset
from Penny Black.



I have stamped this cutie onto patterned paper from my stash, and have 
coloured her up using Copic Markers, using a Nuvo glitter pen to
add accents to some of the shopping bags and balloon.
I have also used my white Gelly Roll pen to add high lights.

The following items have been used:

Penny Black Transparent Stamp - You're Retro
Lawn Fawn Stamp & Die Set - Hello Sunshine 
Nuvo - Glitter Gloss pen
Gelly Roll - White
Washi Tape

Thanks for dropping in, hope you are having a wonderful day.

Until next time - Happy Crafting
