Another Beautiful Day!

Hi all! Its been half term here so I have not got a great deal of card making done, I do have two worn out boys though! As time has been short, I have been looking at images on microsoft clip art and seeing what I can do with them.

This image I found under butterflies (also under swirls) and is really pretty. It was black but I re-coloured it to grey as that was more suitable for this Thinking of You card that I needed to make.

I also needed to make a card for a friend's son who loves cricket. As both her boys love cricket and I make their cards for her and from us, I was trying to find something that I had not used before and came up with this.

Finally I have had another go at stamping for a friend who has a lovely little dog a bit like my own. I must say I am still struggling with the colouring side and just using some basic watercolour pencils at the moment. I am thinking about getting some copics so if you have any opnions on them please let me know!

Well it looks like its going to be another beautiful day and my own little dog is wanting some breakfast and a walkies. Have a great day what every your doing! Tracey x

Kids outta school over in Southend-on-Sea too?
Clip art is a great way to make a quick card, and they still look fab. About the watercolour pencils, that is what I recommend, especially in the beginning because they are very forgiving and easy to layer. It's quite possible that Copics are the same way, but I haven't tried them yet. Nor should I, I haven't got enough money after funding the stamping addiction... If you want to practice on some Penny Black images, email me your address and I will send you some.

P.S. Where'd the Honest Scrap award go? Was feeling inspired to be honest, came back to get it and can't find it, lol.
