Pretty Birdcage

I've finally got round to using one of the stamps from the Pretty Birdcage stamp set from Chocolate Baroque. Its a gorgeous set and I bought it almost as soon as it was released, together with the lovely Honey Bee set. Life has been so busy that I've only just managed to use it, and that was in a very quick make.
One of the ladies at card class has unfortunately had a minor stroke and I wanted to get a card made fairly quickly. This stamp is beautiful and doesn't need much in the way of embellishment so it was ideal. Its coloured with pro-markers and the bird glazed with crystal laquer.
I do hope she recovers quickly, so get well soon Pat, we really are thinking of you.

Hugs, Gina x

Black and White

This week at Magnolia Down Under Challenge, pretty much anything goes as long as the image is coloured in black and white. I thought this was a great challenge and here is my submission. 

I've used Tilda with Daisy from this season's Sweet Crazy Love collection.

The backing papers are a mix of computer generated and Magnolia. The border is a die cut done with Memory Box Cherish Border die. These dies are wonderful to use - coated in teflon, the intricate die cuts just slide out of the dies without sticking - brilliant.

The flowers and corners are from Wild Orchid.

A bit of ribbon and card candi finish it off.

Thank you for looking.
