Liquorice Allsorts!!!


Good grief...I like liquorice allsorts occasionally but didn't mean my card to look like one!LOL!   Thought I'd try Kimmi's sketch for stampin for the weekend, used my new BG June bug paper. Hmmm. Maybe too much black....

  I also discovered something quite useful when I was colouring my yellow flower with copics. DON'T handle your damp flowers when you have cuts on your fingers! Ouch! Alcohol stings!

Card is SU, sentiment is SU, brads are BG, cut the circles with nesties. Image is a magnolia, I think she's pretty cute.

 We have Gav's daughter Hazel and her friend Sophie here from Auckland for a few days. Gee, I feel like a dwarf, Haze is SOOOOOOO tall!LOL.  Gav has taken them up the mountain to slide in some snow. I decided to hibernate for the day.

Wow, Viv, this is a stunner! I don't think there's too much black on your card. The yellow/black is a fabulous colour combo and the papers are delish! Gorgeous flowers and your colouring of the cute Tilda is perfect. :)

Hey Viv love your card and the papers are great, don't think there is too much black, as it goes so great with the other paper, makes a nice contrast, and yellow definitely goes with black. You've done a fabulous job on Kimmi's sketch and thanks for the tip with the damp flowers.......ouch!
