Time well spent

I had a lovely time last night playing in my craft room .Here is a technique using heat & stick powder & glitter.cut out an oval shape from scrap paper to create my oval shape placed it on to whisper white CS and stamped my image from time well spent colored the bike in with my markers ( I LOVE MY MARKERS) they have so many uses.then with my oval template still in place i used my versamark and inked the pad directly on to the CS, before it dried i sprinkled heat & stick powder then heated with my heat tool until melted sprinkled the glitter over while the powder was still hot then reheated for about 10 seconds to set . I finished the card of by attaching a felt flower with a brad in the middle the flowers can be found in the summer mini, & some ribbon rose red again ,summer mini these ribbon come in three popular colors rose red, bashful blue &chocolate chip they are 2.5cm wide and double stitched of course I had to have one of each as they go with so many things. hope you like my card i will be back soon xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Time well spent with loads of love

Here is a card i made using the words & the seat from the stamp set Time well spent the flowers & trees are from the stamp set Loads of love. This is what did I stamped all images using Stazon on to confetti white CS everything was coloured using my markers the fine end of the marker was used for the flowers ,the seat & trees I used my Auqa painters & the fat end of my markers to apply color I added some dazzling diamonds with the 2 way glue pen to finish of the card. I think this card is really cute when I got the time well spent Set I was a bit stuck on what I would do with the seat so this is one idea & i have a few more floating around in my head.

This card is made with the stamp set friendly Flowers
Pg 7 of the summer mini.I used earth elements markers to color these stamps .
