I hope that you're all keeping well and happy.
I'd like share a couple of cards with you that Jean Hardy posted on the Crafty Individuals blog yesterday.
The first card was made using one of my all time favourite CI stamps of the little girl and boy holding hands. I took a photograph of two of my grandchildren last year and as the photo reminded me so much of this stamp, I knew that I had to use it for my Daughter's birthday. She absolutely loved it and it's now been framed.
The background was made using Brushos and distress inks and the image was coloured using Derwent Inktense pencils.
The second card is similar to a larger one that I made earlier in the year for my crafty friend Leanne's birthday. I really love the CI baroque stamp, so I've made quite a few in different colours to help build up my birthday card stash. The sentiment stamp was a freebie with a magazine and the butterfly die is by Memory Box.
I'll be back with you on the 18th with some mid-month inspiration over at Stamping Sensations but until then, I hope the sun shines for you and that you can do a little of whatever makes you happy :) x
I'd like to add my first card into the following challenge:
