Well I'm still hard at it - working through a pile of stamp images I've coloured but not progress any further with.

For this project I distressed the edges with distressing ink and used the Zutter to distress the edges - a 1st for me even though I've had the machine awhile!

I always struggle with male sentiments but thought this one was just right for this image - you can imagine him tutting!

Medium:   Copics, Prisma and Polychromo pencils, black pen, pva glue for faux pearls, distressing ink

I had this little girl stamp from Lily of the Valley coloured along with several more stamps from LOTV all in the same colour scheme.  Although the images had worked well using the Red, White and Blue - I was a bit perplexed when deciding on design, paper etc.

Decided to use jubilee papers from Papermania (CD Rom - Portabella Road) and distressing inks.  Although I think I have a style that is mine I do not like to use the same technique/style on all my projects.  There are many crafters I really like and recognise their work as I find they stick to very similar cards and only change papers, images and flowers in many cases.  This is no disrespect to them in any way it's just my preference to try different things and enjoy the crafting of new ideas and techniques.

This one definitely took me out of my comfort zone - not sure how much I like it yet - but I usually fined I like them better the next day when I've had time away from it.  It's like making anything - you see the mistakes but nobody else does!
