Me ol' Bamboo

I'm delighted to say that I'm a Guest Designer over at Retro Rubber for the next fortnight. You have to use stamps older than a year so it's the perfect challenge for me given that I'm a hoarder, lol.

Their challenge this time is an easy one - Anything Goes

The main stamp on my card is 8 years old and is called Party Paws 'Flowers from Bamboo', released by Crafter's Companion. I stamped him onto smooth cartridge paper with grey Memento ink and watercoloured him in with Distress Markers.

The sentiment was done in black Versafine ink with an old 'Large Birthday Sentiments' set by Lili of the Valley from 2 years ago. 

I added a few gel dots tofinish off and mounted on a 7x7" card blank.

Please pop over to Retro Rubber if you get a chance to see the wonderful creations from the team.

Thank you ladies for having me as GDT this time.

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:-

Crafty Animals  #50 AG with animal

AAA Birthday 25 Happy Birthday  

Thanks for stopping by, stay safe

Sebastian the seahorse

Evenin' all. A late post today because I've been down with my lovely Mum for a couple of days (now we're allowed to stay overnight again) and I wanted to get this one blogged for a challenge ending tomorrow. 

The stamps are from Lavinia - I've used Sebastian the Seahorse (for the main image and also some of the seaweed at the bottom), plus a trailing vine stamp from a really old fairy set.

Waving Hearts

Today's card features a lil' cutie from a Tracey Hey stamp set called 'Friends'

There's a challenge on this month to use the little accent stamps that you get with the main Tracey Hey images, and I've managed to get in four of them on my card.

Thank you to Twinkie Chan for the free pattern,  I had so much fun making him! For those you not familiar with Groot, he is a character in the film 'Guardians of the Galaxy'.

May Calendar Page

Just popping in to share the 'May' page I made for my calendar. I printed it off in March and stamped the image but I've only just had the chance to colour it in.

I used an old LOTV stamp called 'Watering Can' which doesn't seem to be available as a digi stamp in their shop, but you can get the Simply Print version
