Catch that bouquet.....

Evening everyone,
This week the challenge at Magnolia down under is Sepia. 
 Let me just say this was a tricky one for me..
I haven't really done a sepia card before...
I had a few attempts first before I was happy with my image lol.

I coloured My catch Tilda and royal rippling fountain using distress ink 
-walnut stain 
-vintage photo.

Here is my card, hope you like it...

I added some shaved ice to my fountain for a beautifull sparkling water effect...

Air dry clay butterflies...

A close up of my coloured image....

I added part of the vintage Swedish background stamp to the inside of my card...

I really hope you all enjoyed your visit to my blog!!
Till next time, happy crafting.

Its your special day...

Today I have an easel card to share with you using one of the latest stamps
 DooBee pops Bride Tilda from the Special Moments Collection!!

I just adore this stamp she is so beautiful... 
I coloured her using my copics and added her pretty dress with DooBee pops paper.

The frame, swirl and corner elements I made using the Martha Stewart air dry clay. 
I added in some shabby white frantage and shaved ice for some texture and sparkle.

I really enjoyed making this card and having fun with the new stamp and DooBee pops...
This paper is so cool!!
