Make it Colourful Challenge ~ {Black with a hint of red}



Make it Colourful challenge this week is Black with a hint of Red

So I had a dig about in my images that friends have sent me to see if I could find any inspiration & this one just jumped right out at me.
After I had coloured it I wasn't sure what to do next. I just couldn't see a busy card so I've gone for clean & simple using SU's vintage vogue flowers stamp.
I have coloured the image using promarkers.

Thank you for stopping by today, your comments always make me smile & I appreciate every one of them.
Hugs

Christmas Crafting, thank you cards & more.....

Today I decided to have a little bit of craft time. I have been wanting to make a count down to christmas for ages after I made one a couple years back. I have used Lili of the Valley stamp, SU papers, Crafty Sentiments tag die for numbers & coloured the bear with watercolours.


Last week I also made these sweet yet simple christmas cards ready...aren't I organised!!! Again its a LOTV stamp coloured with watercolours. The sentiment is SU & I added some pearls to finish them off.

It was my father in law's 70th yesterday so I used the old dude from Make it Crafty's flirty seniors digi stamp & coloured it with promarkers. The doggy is a daisy & dandelion stamp & is for a friend's birthday. I coloured it with watercolours.

I figure I may need a few thank you cards so I've made some using my 12x12 Pepper & Friends papers. There's these simple ones & then some more fancy bigger ones.

Then there's special ones. I have made the decoupage…
