I was getting things together for my daughter to enter into several challenges and then I just had to have a go myself. The challenge that got me going is Little Miss Muffet - Clouds! The thing is I've just been watching a Clarity Stamps bit on TV about inking a cloud background and I just had to try it out. Not only was it simple but I love the effect! All you do is cut out some bumps on a piece of paper and then you use this as a template to ink over the edges and keep moving the bumps around! How cool!
Anyway, I'm entering this card into:
Little Miss Muffet Challenge #21 Clouds

Card for a beautiful redhead

I made this card for a lovely girl I know, she has beautiful red hair
and so I wanted to celebrate it!
I'd like to play along with Karen's Doodles challenge#87- Quote Inspiration. Closes Mon 7th
Here's my quote:
-- "You'd find it easier to be bad than good if you had red hair," said Anne reproachfully. "People who haven't red hair don't know what trouble is."
(by character Anne Shirley speaking to her guardian Marilla in book 'Anne of Green Gables')

I love going through different people's blog and being inspired by other people's designs. I made this card based on a design by Fae at Fae's Follies, I just loved the idea of coloured squares on the black and white base. I've used a gorgeous digi stamp by TiddlyInks.

Get Well Soon

I just love this stamp from Lili of the Valley! I've coloured it with promarkers and used an embosing folder for the sentiment.
