Jennie from The Artistic stamper is also our guest designer this week you can find Jennies blog Here

Julie and i were lucky enough to also receive a set of stamps each to use in our examples this week Thanks Jennie.

Here's what i did........

For this card i stamped the image and coloured her dress red and used my one and only copic marker to colour her skin (boy these pens are fab) matted the image on to red and black card stock, added red prima flowers and put black beads in the center, and also made up little dangle beads for the bottom and the live it up is a rub on from the £1 shop..

For This card

I used inks to make the back ground, stamped the image and stamped the delight in life, matted it onto black card stock then glued and sprinkled micro beads around the edge, from the waste i cut a strip and stamped some flowers and cut it into a thinner strip and matted it to black card and put it on the card blank.

over on Aunty's forum (see side bar) the teams challenge this month is wings i have seriously been lagging behind with the challenges so i made this card towards this month fingers, crossed i get to do more but I'm seriously lacking in inspiration and my mojo has run away, so if you find it could you kindly send it home please lol. The papers are from crafty Individuals and the stamp is studio G i think.
