Hey Chick...and MFT Birthday Wishes!!

I have two cards to share with you today! I made these samples for the water colouring with Distress Inks demo that I did at the Scrapbook Academy last weekend. I think they are both very cute and was very happy with how they turned out. Both cards are very simple in terms of the layout but I think that is what makes them so pretty!

For this card I made a 6X6 base from some light purple Bazzill Basics cardstock and used my DCWV Nana's Nursery Boy pp pad. I stamped Farmer Tilda on water colour paper with Black Staz-On ink and coloured her in with my Distress Inks. I also, stamped the Magnolia birdies and coloured them in too. The layout of the card is very simple but I really like it and I like all the open space. I stamped the MFT sentiment on a tag cut with 2X2 QK die I also cut the photo corners with my QK Squeeze. I added lots of Stickles and Sakura stardust pen for some sparkle and some ribbon!

The inside sentiment is printed on the computer using my favourite font Wendy Medium. I changed the colour so that when I printed it, it would match the purple ink I used for the sentiment on the front of the card. I then traced over it with my Sakura stardust pen.

The design for this card is also very simple but I think it is still very pretty! I didn't think I would like the MFT stamps coloured in with the Distress inks but, surprisingly enough, I really like how this image turned out. I used by BG 6X6 pad Euphoria pp on this card. I just wish I didn't colour the icing orange...wasn't paying attention there...duh!

Well, thanks for stopping by and having a wee look! Hope you have a great day!!

Hi Tara,
Thanks for your kind comments on my Rubber Romance card for the Ismaki Challenge. I was wondering if you would like me to send you some images from this range, I have quite a few and would be happy to stamp some for you, especially as you've not come across them before!
Hugs, Tara xxx
