Happy Sepia Everything...


Hi everyone!! :)

I am finally back with a post I have been wanting to write since Monday when the first Clearly Besotted Stamps Challenge launched... my body has been letting me know in no uncertain terms that a haircut and two trips out into the sunshine in the space of five days is a pace it does not like, however, so rest has been mandatory :S I am very happy to be able to join in with the challenge now though and these cards are my first (yes, there will- hopefully!!- be more before it closes!! :)) entries...



As regular readers of my lil' blog can probably guess, I made these just after the sepia FlexMarker experiments in this post... I had both the pens and the stamps still on my desk and just thought that the combination could be a good 'un... and I think I was right... room for improvement with the colouring, but I do very much like the results!! :)



A bit of a closer view below... I do like this Sunkissed Pink tone of FM with the sepia look... and  added a little green underneath the beiges on the stem for the 'Just for You' card which I think made a nice difference :)




{The List}

A6 top-fold cream card blanks plus extra card for image panels
Stamps - Clearly Besoted Stamps - Happy Everything and Spring Blooms (for 'HB' sentiment)
Woodware Clear Magic - Salutations (for 'JfY' sentiment)
Inks - VersaMagic Jumbo Java
WOW! Clear Semi-dull Embossing Powder
FlexMarkers -  Sandstone, Champagne, Linen, Antique White, Sunkissed Pink, Meadow Green and Blender (I think- apparently I didn't write a seperate list so having to make an educated guess from my Gorjuss cards list!)
Papers - scraps from First Edition's Spring Feast pad
X-cut Scalloped Border punch (including 'waste' piece for inverted scallops)
Cosmic Shimmer Pearl Glue - Milk Chocolate

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges: Clearly Besotted Challenge #1 - Anything Goes :) ; ATSM - Addicted to CAS :)

Okay, I'm off to link up... and I'll hopefully be back fairly soon... I have many more CBS cards to share- discovering Steph's fab company has been very good for my creativity... maybe a little less good for my bank balance (new dies, anyone... OMG!!!) but hey-ho, we won't talk about that!!lol Thank you for all your comments on my last posts and I hope you are all well... and not too cold and damp... blummin' British weather... still, at least the garden's getting a good drink the easy way!! ;)
