Fantasy Village

I had great fun making this card, it reminded me of when my two sons were young and I helped to colour in (they may say I took over). colouring in is so relaxing and being able to use non - conventional colours for a fantasty village is even better. I coloured the surrounding area with Tumbled Glass, added glitter to my sky and moon. I outlined the village with a Copic B12 Ice Blue, used various markers to colour the village.
Stamps are by Lavinia, which I decided to cut from one stamp to four, so I can arrange my village and houses as I wish. The sentiment is from Debbie Moore.

Another Poppy Card

For Janet's Poppy Appeal, details here, I've made this card.
Again I brushed the background with Inkylicious brushes, using TH Distress inks, Mustard Seed, Tumbled Glass and Peeled Paint. The verse is from Elusive Images, the poppies from Lavinia stamps. I used a red Copic pen to colour the poppies. if you can spare a poppy card to send to Janet I am sure it will be greatly appreciated. many thanks for viewing.

Art Nouveau Poppy

Another card for Janet's Poppy Appeal, see here. First I used my brushes from Inkylicious, and coloured my background using Distress inks, Tumbled Glass, Peeled Paint and Worn Lipstick. I stamped the Art Nouveau lady (Tandastamps) onto a piece of cream card, coloured her in with pencils and Promarkers, added glitter to the lily of the valley flowers.
I edged the piece of card with a black permanent marker.
Used Lavinia poppy stamps, coloured the heads with a Copic and used Peeled Paint to stamp them. I hope you like it, thanks for visiting.
