My Posts are a little bit like British buses, nothing for ages, then lots together!
I promised yesterday I'd be back today and this time with an All dressed up card, and a Lili of the valley one too!
This first one is made using time to share image from the fabulous all dressed up! I actually won this before I became part of their DT, speaking of which come back tomorrow for some exiting news about some freebies in a magazine from the lovely Wendy Burns!
Coloured with my trusty promarkers, I used some digi papers from a polka doodles set for the background, and did some faux stitching all around the edges to make it pop.
The flowers are a Sue Wilson die coloured with distress inks (see below for how I got them speckled) and the leaves are also a Sue Wilson die.
The butterflies are from an old die set - I think Marianne but i can't be sure as the packaging is loooong gone!
To get the speckled look, I used a distress ink pad on a glass mat and spritzed water onto it making it form droplets. I then leave it for a few moments to start and dry up, then add the white card to the drops. That gives it the dotty look.

My second card surprisingly isn't coloured with promarkers - instead I had another practice with the distress inks.
The image was coloured using a variety of coloured distress inks, then die cut using a spellbinders die. The leaves you may recognise from above, but this time the flowers are a small flower punch, coloured with distress inks then shaped using an embossing tool. The centre is yellow glitter.
The sentiment is a crafters companion one, and the whole thing is layered onto Anne Marie designs spotty card.
