A quick play with a Visible Image stamp

Hi everyone I hope that you are all well and happy. Welcome to my little bit of blogland. 
Recently after seeing a card that my lovely friend Debbi Taylor created I was inspired to just sit at my desk and have a play. 
Here is a card that I created and I hope that you like it! 


Here's how I did it!
I took an 8x8 card blank and covered it with brown textured card. Next I took some pearly textured card cut it to size and popped a butterfly mask from Mica on it. ( I atatched the mask with masking tape to keep it in place).I inked the whole thing with Ink from Stampin Up and used darker around the edges. I decided to use a stamp as the focal point after being inspired by Debbi and it is from the Love to create set by Visible Image.
To finish I added buttons to the corners and made a bow from some lovely wide chocolate satin ribbon. 
I really enjoyed playing and creating this card so a big thank you to Debbi for the inspiration.

 Hi everyone I hope you are all well and happy. Welcome to my little bit of blogland ! 
Its the start of a new sexy challenge over at Karleigh Sue and the theme for this month is 
" Its hot out here baby"
As always we the DT have had some amazing digis to work with designed by Cheri the owner/designer of Karleigh Sue. So I would like to share with you a card that I have created using the FABBY Grill Master image and I hope that you like it! 


Here's how I did it!
I took a 5x7 card blank, covered it with plain yellow card from Rymans that I lightly inked around the edges with Dew Drop brilliance Rust Pearl ink.
The topper has been created by matt and layering some pretty peach pearl card and  paper patterned with cute little bunting. Next I colored in the Grill Master digi with a selection of Copics ( I really must remember to write down the colors that I use lol ) again I have lightly inked around the edges with the Dew Drop ink. The sentiment is matt and layered in the same way as the topper and handwritten by me. To finish I added an organza bow and some buttons to embellish.
