One House 2 Sides

Well here is a house that I have done for a swap I have joined, the first side at the top has a wonky door and a word up the wrong way, hence the name 80 Croak and the fact there an old lady in the atiic LOL this is a very bright side and I have used distress ink pads and dabbers to paint the door and the window frame, the rubber stamps are just a few from my collection.

Side two is very dark and mysterious, for this I have used distress inks again and other stamps, its no good I can not remember where they all come from, also used the white pen for highlight, hope you like this house and one final thing, " Who would live in a house like this " ????

Hope you like my house and sorry its not for sale LOL thanks for looking xx

Butterfly Pocket

This weeks Pocket challenge is Butterflies, I have used some cardstock and put a quote on the front and covered it over with a slide mount decorated in the same card, the butterfly rubber stamps are a various few I have in my collection, I have stamped them and cut them out and stuck them on so the wings lift ( though you can not see that here) I have finished them with a Bindi in the middle, the stamp at the top with the butterfly and writing is a Cherry Pie Art stamp.

Thankyou for looking and hope this is ok for the challenge x

Goodness another pair

Oh dear there is now no hope for me what so ever, I am officially a Tilda addict, here are two more I have put together today, the images have been coloured in for a while, just needed me to find papers and make them.

I have used W R Memory Keepers papers, they are very distressed and pale, I think maybe to pale, the embellishments for both cards are the Stitchel range that I also am addicted to and can not wait for the new designs to be out, the faithful prisma pencils a few cards and two completed cards, hope you like them and thanks for visiting xx
