Round & round & round .......

Hi everyone, I'm back on the PAPERMILLDIRECT blog today with a circular card.......
I've used white 'Hopsack' for the 3 layers and cut them with Spellbinders Noble Circles.
 All stamps are from INKYLICIOUS
I used watered-down Brusho's to colour the flower, and Twisted Citron distress oxide for the leaves.
Why not pop over to the Papermilldirect blog.....there are some fab inspirational tutorials.

More PaperArtsy @ Topflight Stamps

Hi folks, I'm back today with a tag I've made, using a few different PaperArtsy products.... from Topflight StampsπŸ˜€
(I'll list what I've used at the end of this post)
ALL CARD STOCK IS FROM PAPERMILLDIRECT
I started off by cutting a tag shape, and inking it with Brusho powders.
Using an old book page, I stamped two flowers from a set of stamps designed by Tracy Scott (I adore Tracy's designs). These were 'fussy-cut' and put aside until I'd finished the background.
Using stamps & stencils, I made a 'messy background on which to place the flower.
 
I must admit at this stage I'd made it too messy and didn't like it too much. Hey-ho, no time to make another, so I had to finish it.
I adhered the flower & stem, which I'd coloured with inks, 
then added a few drops of enamel accents in black & white, and a bit of doodling.
So, although I'm not altogether happy with it, this is my project for today.....what do you think??
I'll be back soon with something I like a bit more, hopefully 😁
Happy crafting,
Barbara x

Anyway, these are the (very easy) cards......full details on the Papermilldirect blog.

Bright & Not So Bright.......

Hi bloggers, I'm back today with two cards made using 
  stamps & stencils and 
card stock.
I've used almost the same stencils and stamps, but changed the colour of the background. It makes a massive difference.
I was inspired by a card made by the lovely ( SALLY HOLMES ) 
What do you think???
My fave is the brightest one, of course.....


Catch you soon,
Barbara xx
