celebrate birthday

this is an older design by sue Wilson and I have had this justrite stamp for some time.
I thought colouring it with my spectrum noir pens would work well'
the sentiment is cut out of a second stamping and layered on top, and I distressed the edges of the complete image, then gave it several layers on milk coloured card.
a simple card which would suit a man quite well I think

there's only one like you

this design is adapted from a sue Wilson design
[she used a different stamp]
I coloured the stamped image with pan pastels, then tried a spritz of perfect pearls mist [to seal them]. 
 the reflected light is not so obvious in real life.
this didn't really turn out as well as I would have liked ... the perfect pearl is too much I think

you are so sweet

sue Wilson shared this design a few months back
I recently got the sunflower stamp set from justrite so thought I would try this one
I used coconut white and kraft card for this, and I coloured my sunflower with some of my new spectrum noir alcohol pens which I have also started to collect!!
I added some diamond sparkles to the flower head

glitter texture paste

sue Wilson's original design used clear texture paste and iced snow glitter, but I used aurora sparkle texture paste through the large polka dot mask for the background.
the justrite stamp is stamped in silver and coloured with my new spectrum noir pencils.
there is no sentiment but I may add one that I see if it seem appropriate.

this is my first post using my superfast new laptop!!
my poor old one was getting a bit slow and useless so I treated myself!!
i'm very broke but this baby is a mean machine and I love it!!
anyhoo ... my card is one of sue wilsons that I have made in my own version as usual.

with love - roses

this is a sue Wilson design that I have changed by using creative expressions stamps to make a layered vase and rose stem as my focal element.
I coloured them with spectrum noir pencils
I used cream pearl card instead of plain white
