April Showers ,,,,,

Hi all ,,, my goodness these Tuesdays soon swing by don’t they !! It is already time for a new theme over on the Papertake Weekly Challenge :-)


I love this House MouseGentle Rain’ image,, sooo cute :-) I love his expression ,, like my dog Jessie when she has to go out for a wee in the rain ,,,’do I have to’ ,,,, poor thing eh !! :-)

I coloured with copics and inked the edges with Stormy Sky DI, the papers are Jillibean Soup from a Homemade Bean pack and I inked the edges with Wild Honey DI. I added twine, a lovely rose from a Londonerry pack and I made the ribbon slider with a Simple Buckles Memory Box die, the fab vintage tape is from The Ribbon Girl and I added loads of star dust stickles and robins nest dew drops to finish :-)

Tower Bridge ,,,,,, :-)

I LOVE London and one of my fave places ,,, apart from Oxford St ( No 1 shopping street in the world) is the Tower and surrounding area ,, such a lovely place ,,, so when I saw The Tower Bridge stamp by Penny Black at the CHA I knew I had to have it! :-)

The theme this week over on the Penny Black Saturday challenge is to CASE a card by my lovely friend, Helen.

I stamped the image with Walnut Stain DI and then using a Tim Holtz waterbrush pulled out a little of the colour to create a watercolor effect. I then inked around the edges with stormy sky DI. I used Kraft-Core dinations for layering and for the embossed panel. I used a Distressed Stripes folder, sandpaper and a paper distresser , the paper is from My Minds Eye and I added some vintage tape from The Ribbon Girl to finish :-)

thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)
