Young Alexa



Good Morning hope you are all enjoying your weekend break. Yesterday I had a break from DT cards and challenges and decided to just stamp a couple of cards for fun, I have so many new stamps that I just havent had the time to ink up and colour. Here is the first of my "For Fun Cards".



Young Alexa comes from an Elizabeth Bell stamp collection I bought from the lovely Susana at Susanas Custom Art Cards, all the images in this collection have the usual Elizabeth Bell Ahhhhhhh!! Factor. Alexa has been coloured with Distress Inks (Worn Lipstick, Tattered Rose, Tea Dye, Broken China, Dusty Concord, Shabby Shutters, Antique Linen). The lovely soft papers are Imaginise. I have used another of the beautiful roses I bought last week from Tabby Craft sprayed with Pearl Glimmer Mist, the smaller roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts.



This is the last weekend before the Big Stamp Show 2009 at Ally Pally and I am going to be really busy this week getting cards etc ready fro Crafters Companion so may be a bit lack with my blogging for the next few days. I am so looking forward to the show and it would be great to meet up somewhere if you are going.

Well thats it except to say I will be back later today with a new Henry card and a little WOJ candy.

Thanks for looking
Hugs
Jacqui xx

Hi Jacqui,
I nearly bought this stamp yesterday, but was good & reined myself in. Now, thanks to you, I'm feeling naughty again & I think I will get it anyway, LOL! Your colouring of it is gorgeous. It is so evocative. Of all the Elisabeth Bell images, I think this is one of my faves!This is such a beautiful card.
Hugs,

Hi Jacqui, your card is so pretty and I love this adorable stamp - fortunately my friend has it and lets me stamp her up - we are into buying and swapping between us so we get twice as many to play with, if we just had the time that is! Your colouring is beautiful, so soft and gentle and those pretty papers really set it off.
love and hugs, annie x

Dena said...

Jacqui! OMG this is the most delicate looking card I have ever seen! I loooove it! The colors, the way you colored the image, all of it is perfect.
Question for you....you said you used distressed inks for the mouse card up top, did you use fired brick for the red? I seem to get an orangy red from that color. Yours looks amazing! Love the way you colored that card too. Hugs, Dena
