No Distress Inks !!

Can you believe it I've not used any Distress Inks ! So, this is my card for the following challenges :

This photo is slightly better, but when I'm home again I shall take them again and replace them. The main image is an Ollyfant stamp as is the umbrella. Both have been stamped with black Memento ink and then shaded mainly with Baby Pink and Tulip Yellow Pro Markers. The girl was cut out with a rectangle Nestability and then mounted on pink and black card. The paper is My Minds Eye and I've done some Faux Stitching down either side. The background card has been embossed using the Victoria embossing folder. The word 'Mum' has been stamped with my Habico alphabet stamps in black Stazon. The umbrella has been cut out and mounted on foam pads.

The flowers are cut using my Sizzix Bigz die and a punched flower added to the centre. The pearls have been coloured using Pro Markers.

Well today has been the most horrid wet and grey day ! The rain has been horizontal all day. We did venture out for a couple of hours but gave up and came back to the cottage and lit the fire. This is sounding all too reminiscent of our holiday in the Lakes !

Thanks for looking



  1. 2 gorgeous cards Sue, I love the richness and the texture is really fab. That Victoria folder is really stunning.

    Sorry to hear that you're away at the time of 'Cyclone Cynthia' hitting the east coast. Its such a shame. Hopefully it wont be a complete wash out but as you say, a real fire and a nice glass of wine is pretty good compensation!
