Sending Hugs.....

This sweet little image is an acrylic stamp by Kanban (UK). The papers are by Paper Pizzaz, and the sentiment is by Craftwork Cards



The border punches are EK Success, and the ribbon was a gift - I think it's from Michaels

I found the inverted scallop nestability on sale in Hobby Lobby, so of course I bought it - I would buy a used tea bag if it was on sale. I wasn't at all sure if I would use it, but now, I love it, you will be seeing it again I'm sure

Promarkers used:

Ivory, blush and pastel pink

blossom and pink carnation

primrose and buttercup

sandstone, burnt sienna and warm grey 5

Ice grey 1 to shadow


I am working on getting a few Promarker videos done, not that I am any sort of expert, but alcohol inks seem so confusing to a lot of people who are new to them, that I thought a few simple tips might be useful. Now to clear a space on my table so that I can squeeze the camera on. I often wonder how the people who take videos from above do it. Do they have a device like a miners helmet with the camera strapped to that? Do they have a film director type on hand to film over their shoulder? Do they strap a camera to a step ladder? It's a mystery to me. You will have to put up with my upside down or sideways angles.
See you tomorrow

Hey Enfys, I have no idea where to put the camera, unless you put it on a shelf looking down at your desk/table. But I don't care, I just love watching videos! And your's have been just as good as anyone else's. I'll be waiting!

Really sweet card Enfys, I love the look the border punches gave. I know what you mean about buying the used tea bag is it were on sale. I do the same thing, but when I get around to using the stuff I always wish I had bought more, ha ha. ~Diane

Adorable card! I'm thinking some of those Promarkers would be a great Christmas gift, I'll have to add them to my list.
As for those videos, I know of one gal who puts her camera on a tripod and then has it sticking out from a shelf over her work area. KWIM? I'm not sure I'd be able to even do any video, so I think you are doing just fine! Will be looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

I love this card Enfys.
I love all of your cards really but these last few have really caught my eye.
I must have missed where you got these images.
Are they digi's or stamps.
Either way I love them.
