Strawberry kisses

I've promised my self I am going to try and blog at least once a week, working full time, looking after the family might get in the way but I'll try my best!!!
This weekend I've been playing with my spectrum noirs and Crafters companion strawberry kisses stamps.  I am trying to improve on my colouring techniques and I love these little characters, they are so easy to colour and bring to life and can be used for many occasions.

The backing papers are from the matching CD and the card blanks, sentiments and gems are from my stash. I've used the card companions off the CD for speed and because they match perfectly.
Hope you like x

First ever post!!

Well here goes, hello and welcome to my blog. I thought I would kick it off with a project I have been working on.
I was asked to do some wedding invitations for my broter's wedding in October. They didn't want anything traditional and had seen the funny cake toppers in the internet so I worked with a picture of one of these.
The colour theme was purple (a certain chocolate bar purple), cream and silver. So I researched the RGB colour and used My Craft Studio to make a background sheet, cut out the picture and pasted it onto the back ground. Did the same for the mats adding text in cream.

With a bit of purple and silver mirror card it all came together, see you what think. I had to add a band around to keep the card closed as the weight of the mirror card pulled it open.
 I now have to work on matching place cards, menus and table numbers!!!

The happy couple were extremely happy with them and I've just received mine in the post!!!!
