The stamp is by woodware and I coloured it using my gel pens (I had to dust these off its been that long since I used them).

Well as you can see a BIG mess, no-one tidies up after they finish a project................ do they?
I was browsing the internet when I came across this tutorial http://whimsystamps.blogspot.com/2011/03/bookmark-tutorial.html the tutorial was really easy to follow and this is how mine came out
I used a stamp set by Artistic Outpost featuring the Wizard of Oz (my favourite film of ALL time). I'm not ashamed to say I bought the stamp set for the ruby slippers only lol. The writing underneath the slippers reads follow the yellow brick road and underneath that it says " A heart is not judged by how much you love, but by how much others love you".
I made this gift box after stumbling across this blog http://onthecards.blogspot.com/ and though hey I can do that!
This is another commission. As I don't make many men's cards this was a real challenge for me!
I got the digi stamp set from http://theclipartfairy.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=180_339&products_id=2497
The little lad has been coloured in using promarkers and I then decoupaged his hair, sleeve, hood and lunch box.
This is a card I was commissioned to make from one of my work colleagues (I love it when people ask me to make cards, it gives me a challenge).
I coloured the poodle using promarkers and added pale pink gems.
The flowers are also by papermania, I was going to use larger flowers but hadn't thought about the envelope so changed my mind last minute, the gems are there to disguise the glue lol. Actually looking at it now it looks like I put them there on purpose, so we'll stick to that version ;).
Inside the card.
Hi all. This was my first attempt at using a stamped image to decorate a candle.
I used the tissue paper technique to do this, following one of the many tutorials on the internet. Im quite pleased with how it turned out and will definately be doing this again!
