It's a kind of magic

Hello everyone
 I am starting to get better!!! It has been a long illness and I have found it hard to get back on my feet. Thank you to everyone who sent me get well wishes it made me feel good knowing people care.
OK, to day I have made a card for my mum, she loves fairies so I used the inspiration of the queen and the dragon from Cupcake Inspiration along with the sketch from CLP as a start. I then distressed all of the papers with sandpaper and ink then layered them up. Lastly I coloured the images with copic’s, glitter gel pens and added sparkles. What do you think she is either asking for trouble or she just wants to have fun? I can not make up my mind. I hope you like it Lynn

April showers bring May flowers

Hello everyone
I have made this card for Sally to say thank you for coming to help me today. I have tried to use a lot of different techniques on it to get the result I wanted. I have paper pieced the ducks, layered it, used a ribbon as a layer and a bow, punched flowers and used brads as their centres, embossed a flower ink stamp and coloured the digital image with copic’s. It took quite a long time but I think it turned out OK, what do you think?

Hello everyone

Still not 100% but I am a lot better, but if I make any mistakes I apologise as I am still not thinking straight.

So here goes I have made a treat set for Heather! I am not sure I will get them all finished by Sunday so the may have to share them!! I wanted them to have a vintage feel to them so I used a lovely set of embossed textured papers that I bought (sorry no name on them). Then I distressed them with sand paper and inked the edges to make them look old. For the images I wanted them to look like the old fashion Easter cards so I choose the adorable animals Tilda’s from the Magnolia Hoppy Easter collection and I coloured them with copic’s. My faviourte bit is the umbrella on the cart this was a very easy to make handmade embellishment from the pattern from Scor-pal at http://www.scor-pal.com/cart/index_files/Page394.htm.

I hope you like it, Lynn

Swimming with the dolphins

Hello everyone

This is the card I have made as a designer for the feeling blue challenge at Gingerloft.

When I started on this challenge I was trying to think about what blue meant to me and of course it could only be one thing, diving with a pod of wild dolphins and their babies in the Red Sea. I have tried to capture the experience, even though I am afraid I look nothing like as beautiful as the Gingerloft mermaid stamp. I coloured her with copic's and decided to cut her out to help give the card dimension. To finish I layered some papers from my stash, added some sea embellishments and of course lots of sparkles.

I hope you like it, Lynn

I will be entering it into these challenges;
