hello

 
I have two cards to share today both using stamps from the Urban range by Docrafts. The stamp above is called 'The Chapel' and the one below is 'Shore Thing'. I coloured both with my distress pens (I may do a video tutorial on this to add to my other two - links over there on the sidebar). For the top card I chopped the image into four quarters. I think it worked out quite well. And although the Shore Thing stamp is also square I decided to 'circle it' with a nestie. You lose a little bit of the image but gives you a completely different look.
It's a typical Bank Holiday Monday - pouring. Never mind, that means I can crack on with the two magazine commissions that popped into my inbox last week.

GASP! WOW! LIZ, THESE ARE GORGEOUS!
They are absolutely gorgeous in every way! I love your color choices and the window on your first card is wonderful. How brilliant to add the banner on the second one to match your image!
It's always a treat to visit your blog!
I hope that you have a good day!
Warmest hugs, Sheryl

Oh Liz, these are gorgeous - I don't think I could choose a favourite. Love the window effect and simple embellishments on the top one, and your round image with matching banners on the bottom one...a very clever idea.

Hugs,
Jennifer. x
