WOYWW + Winners

It's WOYWW time again and here's my space going through and organizing my rubber seeing there some are some not stamped out so I can have a quick glace on the other side to see how it looks etc
So I'm trying to group them with those with foam, no foam then into companies/holidays it's a process that works most of the time lol. 
I am always amazed at baby wipes and how they clean our stamps remove marker ink and manage to be safe enough to use on your skin to remove a mess. 
 So here's a close up of those I'm rearranging at the moment it's a wide assortment for sure and seeing I don't own enough of each to get there own individual pages I just try my best to theme them up one way or another :)  looks like foam vs no foam at the moment lol
Winners of my little RAK day giveaway are Lynda Beazley and Eliza congrats please send me your emails so I can get you prizes to you both

Happy WOYWW and I'll pop around to as many people as I can

Long flowing Red Hair

This week at Incy Wincy we want to see distressing mine is pretty subtle in it but I did distress the edges and painted over a lite wash of white over the BG  and then used my water colours in a very fun way not in the lines I like to say and I always love looking at this style it's so much more left to imagination it seems.

Winter butterflies

How often can you ever use butterflies and snowflakes in one card well I couldn't help myself when I started this one the sentiment just makes it work. I also had to colour in my little punched butterflies they where a little one dimensional for me so this is leading to me making 6 more cards similar to this one just with different papers so here is my sample card.
The embossing powder is huge "Bling Bling"  from WOW it does not need help sticking down 
but I do use the heat gun from underneath seeing it can blow off everywhere lets just say I vacuumed up after in my space glitter gets everywhere :)

Just a Touch of Colour

Our Sponsor this week is Milk n Coffee and we want to see white on white with a touch of colour. I've coloured my image with a pencil just to shade the little peeps and snowman and used Pencil crayons to add the touch of colour I found them to be a little rough so I went over them with a pale marker just to blend the pencil together.

WOYWW & Winner

So It's WOYWW and here's my space a little more colourful then last week but almost the same. I coloured in the little birds and covered the offensive Christmas word over lol for some of you who think it's way to early to create them so soon. I just had a blast colouring these guys up and couldn't make them all the same.
Also A little happy mail on my desk from GranMargaret amd Darnell thank you both for the sweet cards made my Mon and then Tues for sure :)
Just finished building some kitchen cabinets took so much longer then I wanted to UGG!!
let's just say no wall or floor is ever perfectly LEVEL, and when they tell you the wrong thing on the directions bloody frustrating at least the other half is a contractor or I'd still be there trying to figure out what is going on wrong with it all (2 person job for sure)
The lucky winner of that brown envelope on my desk is Zsuzsa Karoly-Smith
send me your snail mail and I'll pop it in the post

Couple of Bookmarks

POLKA DOODLES is this weeks sponsor and I've created 2 little bookmarks
I've coloured them all messy like with water colours I've been in a more dreamy mood when I've been painting this time and I like the effect they look way better in real life the camera just misses a little of the depth.

Underneath it is a few winter birds all set to be coloured up for some fun little cards.There's also above it my WOYWW block...

There's always one in the bunch

That just stands out !! I like the idea of making one of these sunflowers just pop off the page

2 in One Post !!

This week we are sponsored by STITCHY BEAR DIGI OUTLET  and I've created two cards using one of there stores images from Ginger Loft's - O Winter Trees.
