Hopping Bunny girl card (Tiddly Inks image)

Hi everyone,

One more from me today, with this one I have used a gorgeous Tiddly Inks image. I have used some hessian and woollen flowers for some different textures. As you can see by the button on the sentiment tab, I couldn't wait for it to dry before photographing hehe, but in my defense it was getting darker outside so needed to take it before it was too late.

Sunflower card (Hannah Lynn/Crafts & Me image)

Hi everyone,

This is one of my new images from the amazing Hannah Lynn and you can find her and so many other beautiful images at Crafts and Me (click on name to be taken to the store).

I have tried to shabby this card with distressing all the edges and using lots of layers. I used a clear glitter pen over her wings (which I'd copic coloured lemon) which look really pretty in real life.

I have used my favourite colour Flourish with a Bling pearls - Antique gold, some brands are too orange or too bright gold, these really are an antique gold and we have a beautiful flourish set to match. This month we're sending out orders POSTAGE FREE worldwide, please see below for more details.
