a simple card


Hi everyone, is it just me.... or is it just a little crazy at the moment? There just doesn't seem to be any time. Today I would like to share with you a card I have made and I am really pleased with how simple it is yet so effective.

I have created the background by sponging distress inks onto glossy card and carefully blending three colours together. A few die cuts later and a little ribbon and it's done.



Drop into Bizzy Becs and have a look at all the great new dies including MFT( My favourite things).

Supplies used:
Distress ink pads: shaded lilac, ripe persimmon, seedless preserves
Impression obsession dies: greeting set, tree frame
MFT die: File tab
memory box die: alphabet soup

Thanks for stopping by and having a look

see you soon,
Mandy

Today is also the last day of the coupon sale so pop on over, great time to arrange your Christmas pressies for your crafty friends or yourself.

Be a Rainbow

Hi everyone,

Today I would like to share with you a page that I recently completed in my art journal.  I had a play with the Dylusions Ink Sprays  that are available as a pre order at Bizzy Becs online store here.


The colours used were, Bubblegum Pink, Lemon Zest, Fresh Lime, Squeezed Orange, Vibrant Turquoise,  London Blue and White Linen, these were sprayed onto a napkin background and spritzed with lots of water.

The focal image is a stamp to which I have hand drawn shoulders and is from Darkroom Door.  It is a Line Art Stamp and whilst it  is not currently available in the store, if you email Bec she will let you know if it can be ordered in.



Don't forget the coupon sale has been extended to the 31st October 2014 and your codes can be used three times, whoo hoo!   There are also some new dies been added to the store so pop over and have a look.

Happy crafting
