Di's BIO:  {I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with like-minded people.  I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself. This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue! }

I've use Simon Says Stamp Cardstock with  Three Shades of GrayLavenderGreen Apple  & Black. The adorable image is from Tiddly Inks - Bewitching and I have coloured her with Copics and the bats are from Lawn Fawn Happy Haunting. The spider and webs are I Clear Mini Stamps - not available anymore. I did want to use all of the Color cooredinates including  Orange Peel but it didn't sort of fit in and I overcame this by colouring the image with strong orange hair. I found a little wooden bat, and coloured that with an orange colour, embossed it - not successful it just looks a little dirty.
I added the Lawn Fawn Happy Haunting sentimen along the 'grass'

LEAVES

I chose to use these beautiful papers by Maja Desogns called 'Walking in the Forest'. I've had these papers for 2/3 years - I loved them so much I couldn't bear to use them - now I've managed!!!
Because of the stunning papers I didn't want to add any embellishments so I just added a bow and small charm and a vellum tag stamped with the Magnolia sentiment.
I have troubled photographing this card getting the colour right - I managed first thing this morning.

DP's:  Maja - 'Waling through the Park

Less is More.....One Layer + time one more!!

 I'm early with Less is More this week for a change and the theme is........

 One Layer Card
time once more.



I've made a change this week - I think Chrissie is a little fed with the Mousies popping up every week!!  This week I've a stamp this week from Alota - I've had this for about 8yrs - it is a stamp that have three of the little cute angles - I had to chop of one but apologized for her.
They are just adorable and I coloured her with Copics, I had a fabulous set of Christmas sentiments - one was perfect but when I pulled it of it's mount it fell apart - they are all perished - now I shall have to search to replace it. The one I have used are C.C. designs by Amy R.
I have another card I would like to use if I  can get it together!!

I decided to go back to my roots and use me Windsor & Newtons Cotman Watercolours - gosh I'm out of practice and do more!!     
I used Tom Holtz Water Color Cardstock with Artist Paint brushes for colouring and used Tiddly Inks Fairy Happy Day.  The Martha Stewart Cherish Round the page punch used the frame the image and added Simon Says Stamp Sketchy Banner to add the sentiment.  I used vellum but doesn't look well when photographed it so I might change this.
