Molly Blooms

Wow....... Another card in matter of days, the elusive card making mojo has returned, not sure how long it will last so I'd better make the most of it :-)  So in keeping with the celebration what is more appropriate than Molly with her banners.

For the this card I've used a Molly Blooms stamp using the sketch from this weeks challenge over at Passion For Pro markers, sorry the papers are mix of scraps so not sure who's they are.  The image was coloured with Pro markers, I've used seam binding for the bow and a Prima butterfly completes the card.

Hope you like

Molly Blooms Farm Yard Birthday Card

It's been weeks since my last post and for this I apologise, for whatever reason I lost that thing called Mojo having said this I had a pleasant afternoon painting this Molly Bloom stamp which I've decoupaged onto watercolour paper, once this was done I decided to take the opportunity to create a birthday card, it's a simple enough card no frills or surprises but I have to admit I really like the simplicity of it.

I do have an issue the larger Molly Bloom stamps, the one above just fit my 6" x 4" acrylic block and with my Christmas scenic Molly Bloom I had to resort to using a DVD case which I found really difficult to centre and stamp evenly probably due to me having small hands!!   If anyone has found a better alternative to using the larger stamps I would love to know.  There was also a problem with the above stamp despite stamping the image a few times for the decoupage there was an area of the tree which did not make contact with the paper fortunately I managed to fill the gap with paint so that it was not noticeable.  Anyways it's nice to be back and I hope you like my latest effort.

Oops nearly forgot I coloured the image with inks on watercolour paper keeping a watercolour effect as I painted.
