I said earlier in the week that I wanted to have a play with Distress Ink colouring, I had this sweet Lili of the Valley Image - Balloon Baby, on my desk and this is the result, I had a great afternoon with my inks, and remembered why I used to love them so much.  

There are lots of lush Ribbon Girl products used on here (they are all listed below), I am loving that shabby pink Ruffled Ribbon, and the bead Stamens, I can see that ribbon with pearls along the middle you may find that on a card soon.

Especially for You

A short post today, I received 4 stamps this week that I bought from Stamping Bella at a really good price, for the first time I actually got charged by Customs, I don't mind the input tax it was only £3.50 but I do get annoyed that the Post Office charged £8.00 administration fee, rant over.  I couldn't wait to use the stamps, I used Uptown Girl Brittany the Birthday Girl as I have a friends birthday coming up and thought it suited her perfectly.

The papers are from my stash, and all the delicious embellies are from the Ribbon Girl, I have tucked a Cherry Lynn English Teaparty Doily Die, a couple of Doo Hickey Tag and Label die, and cheesecloth behind the image.  

The image was coloured with the following Copics:
Pinks: RV55, RV52, RV0000, Greys C5, C3, C1, C0, Browns: E18, E13, Greens: YG23, YG21, Flesh: E1, E00, E000, R20.

I was very pleased with myself yesterday, I had been admiring the pictures of products beneath quite a few blogs I have visited since getting back into blogging, so Googled how to and found the brilliant Inlinkz Project Manager, keeping fingers tightly crossed that it has worked, I am a complete numpty where technology is concerned so this is a real achievement for me

I am sorry that I have not linked to the Doohickey Dies, but they are so old I am not sure where you would be able to find them, You could try Tracy at Dies to Die For, she also sells Stamping Bella stamps.

Last Sneak Peek From Lili of the Valley Cars Plus a Returning Friend

2 cards rather late in the day,  I forgot to post the last of the Vintage Car images from Lili of the Valley May release this one is called "Vintage Sports".  this is just the sort of car I would like to be taken about in.

Very CAS card for me but the image speaks for itself, I used 2 downloaded maps for this one, the top map is of my favourite part of the country Devon.  The background paper came from my stash and is years old, I think it was a Basic Grey sheet.  I have also used 2 sentiments from Lili of the Valley - Sentiment Set 101 - Teenage Boy Sentiments.

Luckly I kept a note of the Copic colours I used in my colouring journal so here we go:

Greys: C5, C3, C2, C1, C00
Blues: B41, B000, B0000
Reds: R05
Yellows: Y33, Y08, Y02
Browns: E15, E41
Greens: G94, YG63, G21, G94, YG23, YG21

 Together with the New Cars, Pub, Shed and Caravan stamps Lili of the Valley  will also be bringing back 3 old favourite Boy Images.  This is the first of the Returning Friends "On My Bike"

Thought I would make an easel card for a change, the papers are from Nitwits Collection - Up Up and Away, another CAS card I am getting quite good at trying to do less is more. The Happy Birthday Sentiment is another LOTV  Stamp fom Sheet 8 - Happy Circular Sentiments. The Buttons were from Mums old Button Box, I am going to have to make one of my own now.

The Copics used for this image are:

Blues: B28, B24, B41
Browns: E15, E97, E50
Greys - GTyres N3, Nw2, N0, Shoes/Bike C7, C3, C1, C00
Hair: E74, E43, E41
Flesh: E21, E00, E000

Thats it for today, still waiting for the forecast snow, but up until now it has been a beautiful sunny but chilly day.

Keepsake Box

No card today I made a little keepsake box for my Daughter in Law, it took ages as I had to make a paper template and I mucked it up a couple of times, but in the end I got the measurements right, I have made a note of them now and will do a little tutorial on making this box soon.

I have used some super goodies from Ribbon Girl, Papers, Pearls, & Flowers all details below.  A Mary Stewart Edge Punch was used for the edge of the lid and bottom of the box, and have add Stardust Stickles around the edge of the Cherry Blossom & Open Roses.

Details the Flower arrangement on top of the box.

I also tarted up the inside of the Box with delicious papers.

Lili of the Valley Sneak Peek 5

Before I start with todays cards I would like to tell you about some exciting news I had this weekend, Mary and Andrea aka The Ribbon Girls asked me to join their design team of course I accepted, who wouldn't, the offer came as a complete surprise especially as I have lost a lot of confidence over the past couple of years, so a big thank you to Mary & Andrea.  I cannot wait to get started and to be working with such a talented Design Team.   

This is sneak peek no 5 of the soon to be released Lili of the Valley stamp collection this image is called "In The Shed", when I first saw the image I thought it would only be appropriate for mens cards, but after thinking about it, there are lots of us Ladies who love gardening and a shed isn't a male domain any more.

I have used:

Bird House Die - From Stash

Copics Used:
Shed: V12, V01, V000, V15, Greens: YG25, YG23, YG21, YG17, G21, YG97, YG93, Greys: C05, C03, C01, C00, Blue B41

Now for my Male version:   The papers are from my stash but I know they are from the now discontinued Lili of the Valley "Antibellum",  the sentiment is from Sentiment Sheet 103 - Sweet & Simple.  

Products Used:

Copics Used:
Shed E74, E43, E40, EWall E97, E53, E21, Greens: YG17, G94, G93, YG97, YG61, YG25, YG23, YG21, G20, Pots: E08, E97, Reds: R27, R05, R02, Greys: C05, C03, C01, C00, Blues: B21, B02, B00, B000
