African Inspiration forBizzy Becs

Hello Everyone,
 I have begun to make some Birthday cards to get me a little bit ahead for the start of the year. 
The stamps are made of red rubber and always stamp beautifully. I stamped this image using Memento ink.
I coloured the image using Copic markers and then tore out the word Cheetah. Both pieces were edged using Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.
I wanted to add a bit more interest in the background so used the Tim Holtz stamp set 'Slight Alterations' with Stormy Sky Distress Ink. I used different parts of the stamp in different spots...not worrying about overlapping or using a stamping block.

I hope you have a chance to enter the Anything Goes challenge over at the store blog this month.
Happy Crafting, Jackie x

Seaside Collage Card

Happy New Year, everyone! This year I have made myself a promise to try my best to craft each week and record the things I make on my blog. This is my first project for the year for Bizzy Becs store and I have used a Darkroom Door Collage Stamp  called 'Seaside Squares' as the feature. These are great red rubber stamps and come in a range of themes.
I used watercolour paper in the background and layersof blue and green paint. When the paint was nearly dry I flicked water over the paper to add texture patches. 
Next I cut out some bubbles using the Frantic Stamper die 'Bubble Border'. I placed this diagonally on the watercolour background.
I used Memento black ink to stamp my image onto blending paper and then coloured using Copic markers. I cut out each square and backed it with foam tape to add dimension.

I hope you too are making lots of time for being creative.
Thanks for stopping by and  happy crafting,
