Stampin Up has so many stamps that can be used in a multiple of ways,on one card.
Hope this inspires you to mix images and colours. The solid bold,red border around the lady actually brings all the papers together. The inks on the image were sponged randomly.
Would love to hear your comments

April Love

This is yet another Photostamp, by Oxford Impressions. This lady is from the plate "April in Paris". After colouring her with soft blended watered down markers, I fastened the photo to an old piece of wall paper, that a friend had given to me. Using brads in bottom corners and ribbon completed this lady. Have a great and creative day.

Winter Whisp

This card features the wonderful stamps of Oxford Impressions. After colouring and mounting these little kids, I placed them on the background paper that I actually stamped various other oxford stamps with septia and then distressed the edges. Using a Martha Stewart punch I created the tree to the left. Flower soft was fastened to the center of the childrens bouquet.
Hope you like it! Have a great day

Treasure Boxes

Happy New Year!
Can you actually believe it is 2010! How blessed we are.
This is a different posting. Thought you would enjoy a gift I made for my wonderful husband.
Using a shadow box, I put all of my scapbooking, cardmaking skills to work. Creating a memory that will last forever. The whole box was based around the poem that was written just for him.
Using embellishments and especially the little sail boat that he made himself years ago.
Hope this inspires you to think outside the box..(ha ha).
God Bless
