Spring in the Step

And here are the photos of my hard afternoon of creation! A little Tilda angel, on a Mothers Day Bunting card and an Easter Basket! I love this stamp so much! Plus I did enjoy the bunny and chick too!!

Love and sparkles,

Colouring Is Such Fun

I do love colouring in! Whittling the hours away, with a Copic Ciao pen in hand, a small pixie next to me helping and a Magnolia Stamped image in front of me is the best ever way to spend a wintery Sunday.

It was very cold here today, and after going out to jump around and have fun in the deep white snow with my friends, I settled down to an afternoon in front of the fire crafting away.

I used my luscious Copics - my preferred means of colouring - to create some great effects, blending colours and then using a white ink pen to highlight and give more depth to the project. Today, my favourite colour to use was pastel blue, it is so beautiful to work with. It reminded me of the colour of the snow just as the night started to fall. Have you ever noticed the colour it is at that time? Its just luminous! I might try to colour a whole blue scene tomorrow....why don't you have a try at colouring a Magnolia stamp (or any stamp you like!) in just one range of one colour... it gives a stunning effect!

Well, my dears, I must be off, one of my aforementioned little pixies, Red Leaf, is here right now and he is calling me to go, so go I must. But I shall post my efforts shortly!

With snowy, sparkly love, Mrs S xxx

My First Photos!

So here are my very first photo posts! After some snowy days in my town, I was unable to go out on magical duties, so decided to stay in and make lots of cards! What fun! I used Christmas Party Tilda on each of the cards, trying to make each one look really different. As Christmas is over, I have used them for other lovely occasions coming up, and don't the Magnolias work well?! One of many reasons why I love them so much is because of how versatile they are!

To create these, I used Copic Ciao pens, Bazzill Cardstock, Blueberry Hill papers and some ribbons, flowers, ribbon, brads and a Valentines stamp from Hero Arts. Oh and of course a sprinkling of fairy dust (glitter!) Ah well, thats all for one day, must be off to do some fairy cake baking!

Love and sparkles, Mrs S xxx
