A Catch-Up post

this is an old old image I received from wishrak many years ago. I'm pretty sure its Penny black but, that is all I can tell you about it. I colored it with copic's. and it's 6" square in real life. The printed papers are from the graphic45 line french country.

Hero Arts Haiku bunny colored with prisma pencils years ago and layered with scraps. the coin is an brad, the lace is vintage. this one is 6" square in real life. 

This pirate is from Viva Las Vegas stamps and the sentiment is Art Impressions. the lace is vintage, the brads are unknown. another 6" square one. 

Stuff from the table a few months ago my friend Alice (Thanks!) gave me a few sheets of printed paper bingo cards and I knew I would only use them in small pieces so I cut them up... so, best guess is the bingo card could be studio calico or MME? (not sure anymore) and playing with them. ( the stack of bingo cards) decided this would work. The doily was stamped a long time ago with some creamy brown chalk ink, the brown doily diecut was rak'd to me from Janice ( thanks Chickie!) The wood house was stained with old photo distress ink. the embossing folder is an sizzix basic grey one from Christmas a few years ago but, I have no clue what it's name is. This is 5X7 in real life. tfl.

Now, this was an oops... I had intended this one to head into the duets gallery but, it did not make my personal cut for that... right when I finished the cards some stray creamy brown ink got onto the colored panel and then.... I grabbed a diaper wipe because, one was on the table and tried to wipe it off... and the chemicals in it rubbed the paper off, and then that just lead to more distressing then when it was done I decided I did not like it so well that distressed. I may tear this one apart some time. ( haven't done so yet) but, it would mainly be to salvage the crocheted bloom. my mother in law made that and its the last one I have like that all floofy. 

its an lili of the valley stamp for the kids and an Hero Arts sentiment. 

That daisy cake is from Impression Obsession. there are liquid pearls all over this for texture. It ended up feeling a little plain after and so, it also did not make the cut in my head either. no, I know its not a bad card but, it's also not a really good one either. the mulberry flowers I think could be either a muse or ctmh. the sentiment's from Savvy Stamps. there are layers of pop dots in this. and its A-6 in real life. 

Alison sent me this stamp during one of the exchanges and this was one of the first one's I've colored that I half-way liked when it was done so... It went to the Ren Faire last month. the wooden button was a gift from June. the ribbons May Arts and the lave is vintage.

This was made for Matt and Drew's baby Cooper. ( Congratulations Guys!)  The card I have made is A-6 in real life, the base is bazzill with a layer of an old SU lace vellum over the top to soften it, this is only glued to the layers of Neenah to hide the glue. So there are some pearls on the edges of the handcut embossed panel but, the edges of the vellum are loose. the shoes are colored slightly with copic's and up on pop dots. the lace is vintage.

both tags were stained with some ranger victorian velvet and the oval dainty diecut was rak'd to me from Janice. there are some liquid pearls on that. the butterflies are from Karen Lockhart stamps, colored with copic's and gel pens. that bloom is wild orchid crafts.
