My First ATC

For this swap on swapbot I had to made an ATC with a quote from my favourite movie. I chose 'An Affair to Remember' and used a gorgeous black and white image of the Empire State Building. If anyone hasn't seen it I highly recommend it. It's a brilliant soppy old romance with Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr.

Baby Baby

Products used: Hero Arts Clear Designs 'Playful Animals' set coloured with Prismacolor Pencils blended with Sansador, Doodlebug paper (unsure of line as bought with a load of stuff at my LSS).

The second card here is for my mum's friend. I LOVE this Penny Black stamp - how cute is the wee hedgehog baby?! Again, I used green on this to steer a bit away from the traditional blues and whites and think it worked quite well.  My mum was really pleased with them as was her friend and her daughter so that was the main thing. :)

Products used: Penny Black 'Baby Hammock' stamp coloured with Prismacolor Pencils blended with Sansador, Crate Paper (again, unsure of specific line)

Long Time No See

I didn't realise quite how long it's been since I posted. I've had lots of things happening lately which have delayed me posting and you know how it is - the longer you leave something the worse it gets. Its a holiday weekend here in Glasgow so I figured there's no excuse not catching up as I have a whole four days off. :)

So - the first card here is one I made a while ago to try out a new Penny Black stamp I bought at the Craft Fair at the SECC in May. I love Penny Black Stamps, definitely my favourite. 

Products used: Penny Black 'Embrace' stamp coloured with Prismacolor Pencils blended with Sansador, Scenic Route 'Newport' papers.
