cream and lilac at lovely hAnglar only

Here i am again with my final card today !! this time its lovely hAnglar only and the theme this week is to use cream and lilac/purple .I chose probably my favourite hanglar and coloured her with distress inks ,i love this colour combo but just couldnt find a paper i was happy with ive got lots of gorgeous lilacs but none were quite the right shade so i decided to make my own .I was rummaging through my stamps and came across this truly beautiful flower corner stamp that had been neglected !! i got it at a local craft shop a few months ago but it never made it out of the packet !!! .....hangs head in shame !!! i coloured the flowers with copics then went over everything with antique linen and walnut stain inks and ta da just what i wanted !!! i really dont know why i dont do this more often its so much fun to make your own papers guess im too partial to shopping for all the new delish pads we are tempted by !!

rocked up pink at truly scrumptious

Hi all im back again with a new challenge at truly scrumptious this week out theme is rocked up pink - use mostly pink and is sponsored by digi's with attitude. I thought this little darling stamp would be perfect for this theme ,ive coloured her with copics and the papers i think are from echo park not 100% sure tho as for once i found just what i wanted in my overflowing scraps box !! I found some bits of chipboard that i wanted to use pink crackle paint on but i only have the white so i painted them first with a bright pink paint then just went over it with the crackle when dry worked just then pink so thats a spot of luck and saved me some pennies !!
