Going all Flowery...not Floury

Anyone who knows me and has followed my blog for a while will know that I make my own when the Tanda girls got together in Wantage recently, I gave everyone an empty yeast tin to alter/decorate...You've had a little teaser piccy earlier this week and I can report that the step-by-step piccies will be on my blog tomorrow, blogger permitting. I had the ultimate compliment voltive was the first thing my mother-in-law noticed when she came into my kitchen (aka my craft room) today...she thought it was very pretty and didn't realize that I had made it or that it was recycled! I'm feeling pretty chuffed now!

So what is this post about...well, I thought that I should finish off the Stampotique cards that I started colouring at the Wantage meet...I've been working on two other cards today and had some off cuts that would just finish off the Wantage cards so I thought that I may as well punch a load of flowers and leaves and finish the job so to speak.....this would also fit with the "Tuesday Taggers" and the "Spoonfull of Sugar" floral theme for this week so here goes.....I used Copic markers to colour the girls and distress inks to distress the edges and masks to stamp around the images. I happened to be working with backing papers printed from Artylicious Fantasy Floral CD today and decided that they would work well with the Daniel Torrente girls....luckily my maidenhair fern punch is un-jammed and working again

...Patty if you're reading this the megga bang on the floor fixed it! ;) You can see I've used the little spiky flower punch I bought last week for the flower centres too!...I think I should get the larger one too;) will have to save up some more pennies!

My other cards today will have to remain under wraps for now..the first one is for a friend who will be 40 at the weekend and I had to get Andrew to make me a custom stamp to cater for her passion in life...the second one was a card for my Hubby for Father's day...Thanks Patty..the Wild Rose Studio "For Men" Trophy Guy has worked perfectly!

It's late now, so I'd better go and make the sarnies for the girls!

And don't forget to come back tomorrow for the low down on the voltive;)

Sue, the cards look lovely! I see some similarities with the lovely boxes you made for us as well. I am still to start on my altered yeast tin! Maybe this weekend. x x

Yummy colours beautifully coloured have the box in front of me another reminder of the fun we all had colouring those images. Great that MIL did not realise and was complementary about it :) Thank you for joining in with us at TT this week. xx Zoe
