It started with the sun...

I wanted to do a sun... so I punched a hole in a piece of card with a punch and used it as a template. I coloured the sun with distress inks (starting with scattered straw, then spiced marmalade, finally fired brick. I then coloured the rest of the card with the colours (the ground is green and brown) and stamped the tree from Katzelkraft JMC Abres Hiver (Isabelle's stamps).
I used the single branch on the stamp sheet as the ground.
The birds are on a nestabilities cut chape (coloured with the same colours as the sun).

Another birthday card

This card is for my cousin's daughter, Natalie (yes, same cousin).

I have taken green Bazzill card and painted with streaks of pink paint. I have then stamped background swirls in pink, and added a ribbon and flowers.
The girl is a Magnolia stamp, coloured with Prismcolor Penciles and blended with Sansodor.
I have added stickles glitter glue around her feet (thanks for that idea Kim!) and glitter on the inner flowers.

What I got for Christmas!

Well, I asked for an ink storage rack (for Christmas) from here, and I got one! Thanks Dave!
It's great, and although not full... it will fill up lol!
It is so much easier to see all the ink colours at a glance.
