Art Journal Pages

Here's my latest pages in my art journal.
 I used Dylusions paints for the background, applied with a baby wipe.  All the stamps are by Dyan Reaveley.
 The background was done again, using a baby wipe to apply the paints.  I then used Dyans stencils and various stamps.
 I watched a Kate Crane inspired tutorial a while back, I love her work.  This is the result.  I applied the paints with a dry paint brush, blending them till I was happy.  I used various size tops for the circles, there's also some stenciling there.  I coloured the Crazy birds with Distress Inks.  I'm really happy with how this one turned out.
 Paints applied again with a dry brush, various stencils and again the circles were done with tops.  I also used an old gift card for the random black lines.
Paints blended with a baby wipe, all stamps and the stencil are by Dyan Reaveley.

Here Come The Girls..........

....... sorry I just couldn't resist that title..... lol.
 I was asked to make a Christening card for twin girls.  It's not often I make Christening cards, so I do enjoy making them when I need to.  I used my Silhouette software to position all the wording and to print out.  The crib dies are by Marianne and the corners are Cheery Lynn. (I think)  The little pearl hearts are from Hobbycraft.
Thanks for looking

Flowers from Inkylicious

I made both of these cards a couple of weeks ago, but kept forgetting to take a photo..... lol.
 The flower stamp and the sentiment are both from Inkylicious.  The flower was coloured with Zigs.  The card background are Adirondacks blended with the blending tool.
The same flower stamps, again coloured with Zigs.  I used Brushos on water colour card for the background.  The sentiment is from a set by Altenew.  The black borders were cut with a punch by EK Success.

I just love bubbles, but them don't most of us..... lol.
I've been practicing this for a while and finally got a result I'm happy with.  I used Prisma coloured pencils to colour them, and a white gel pen for the highlights.

40th Birthday

Hubby came home the other night and asked if I could make a 40th Birthday card for one of the girls in his office, and this is what I came up with.
I love this image, which is a digi image by Just Inklined.  I love their images and was lucky enough to be part of their DT for quite a while.  This image is still available to buy and download from their website. 
I coloured the image with ProMarkers, which sadly I don't tend you use very much at all now.  The sentiment and number were diecut, which I then covered in glitter.  I also added glitter to the shoe.
Oh and by the way, she loved the card.
