Good Morning! How cold have the past few days been!! OMG weird crazy Melbourne weather having 4 seasons in 1 day brr. So my order for ching-chou kuiks fantasy art collection stamps arrived {the ones for personal use not my new store} At first I was a little bit worried that she wouldnt stamp up well on watercolour paper and I started stressing thinking nooo I need to be able to use these as I have 40 I ordered for my store lol and I have to love what I sell. So anyway started to colour her up and OMG Im inlove with the stamps YAYYAYAY. It was sooo much fun colouring her so then I looked around for a challenge to play I wanted a sketch and had seen Jessica list the C4C on her blog every week and really liked this sketch and her cute card inspired me to want to play with this sketch, so decided to play along. I have used my distress inks to colour my image this one is called come softly. Here is the sketch and then my card.

OOh guess what I ordered the 12 newest distress inks today, well preordered them YAYYAY Cant wait 12 new colours, I already have all 24 and sometimes feel like I need more colours and now soon enough I will have 12 new ones to add which I think are going to go FABLOUS with my TGF and Sweet pea stamps!
Hopefully be back tomorrow or friday with Wild card wednesday and Monday Mania :) I ordered special papers in from Annas craft cupboard just for monday mania so fingers crossed they will arrive before friday :) Hope everyone is having a fabulous week!
OOps accidently deleted my signature eeek not sure how to get it back as it automatically appears?? Hmm well its taking a break for this post and will be back for the next post LOL.

I have some other exciting news, my sister Paula has decided to start a web design business designing blogs, banners etc so pop over here for more details if you want a blog re vamp!

Gasp, this is breathtaking!!! those eyes are amazing, and I love your colouring and the sparkles in her hair! Wow! what colour do you use for blonde hair? It's perfect. Everything I have is too yellow but I'm in love with this colour. I think I have got to get myself some distress inks :)


Oh Kristy she is just beautiful!!! SO glad she was easy to watercolor!! I told you, you would love them!! I have more fun coling them than any of my other stamps!!! And believe me I have ALOT of stamps!!! I love the purple Kristy, so beautiful!! I am working on a card now for my Daughter's 16th Birthday tomorrow, and I am using one of her images!!


As Fran said "Gasp!" This is absolutely stunning. Love how you've coloured her. So whimsical and soft. Glad you posted a close up you can really see the detail and glitter. Love it.
