Singing Angel Swissie ☆ C.C. Designs

Today I'm sharing with you a card made for C. C. Designs. Image is called Singing Angel Swissie and it's from the latest release. I coloured her in no-lines technique using my Distress Ink pads. Design papers used on this image are from P13 and these are actually from a Summer collection.

I decorated my card with lots of pretty I am roses flowers and different die cuts AND lots of clear glitter so it really sparkles.

Sentiment comes with the images. You can get the image HERE.

Birthday Queen ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella

Tamara here with you sharing a Birthday card that I made for my daughter. She turned 8 yesterday and I wanted to make something special for her so I used one of the super fun images from Oddball collection called Birthday Queen. That's exactly what she was today - Birthday Queen! 8 is a very important age, so there can't be a cute baby image on her card. Image has to be fun, different, stylish (just look at her boots) and appopriate for the little lady. lol

I wanted to make my card very colourful (not my usual style), so I used different pinkinsh design papers for the layout and for the balloons and number.

Image was stamped using Archival Ink - Jet Black on 300g HP watercolour paper and then coloured up using Distress ink pads.

Distress Ink pads colours used:
skin: vintage photo
cheeks: worn lipstick
hair: barn door, fired brick
dress: picked raspberry, black soot
crown: fossilized amber, spiced marmalade
shoes: black soot
cake: picked raspberry, gathered twigs

I added some white dots to the hair and some glitter glue to the crown. The most important thing is - she loved the card!
