Tori Rock Star - Lacy Sunshine

I'm back with another creation using a Lacy Sunshine digi stamp! Tori is brill for teenage cards or even an old rocker!!

Decided to keep the card quite plain because, even though the photo doesn't show it very well, I have used very bright pink card and bright pink Copics on the image so didn't want to go too heavy on the embellishments! Here she is!

Copics used : E000, E00, E11, B04, B02, B00, V12, V15, V17, RV21, RV23, RV25, 100, N3, N5, N7

Hope you like her! Why not come visit out Lacy Sunshine facebook group! loads of chatter, loads of fun, and loads of sharing. Just search Lacy Sunshine on FB x

My New Ribbon Chest!!

While I was at the craft show in Manchester a couple of weeks ago, I got myself an MDF ribbon chest to decopatch. You can see it in the bottom left of this piccy 

This is the chest after decopatching. I decided to do it all in one paper but I think it needs further decorating so will play with it at another time, was just itching to get it filled!! Of course, there was no option, it had to be pink to match my craft room!! 

And finally in place on my ever decreasing in size desk!! along with a small selection of my copics  lol

I've really enjoyed papering up this box, its just really relaxing and can sit and do it with a tray on my knee whilst watching telly. I'll be posting many more decopatch projects, as you can see from the 1st piccy I got plenty of blanks to be getting on with!! Just gotta work out a way to invent some more hours in the day!! lol

Thanks for stopping by if you have!

The bazzill card and papers are from my stash, the sentiment is a digitial one I printed off. I coloured white satin ribbon with R27 copic marker to get it to match the papers. The flowers and diamante embellishment are also from my huge stash!! lol

Next we have Betty Grand Piano

Again, the papers, ribbon, flowers, bronze corners, butterfly and pearls are all from my stash, decided to make her a bit 'special' and used gold mirror card for the matting rather than just plain papers to give the card a Grand feel! The base card is a 3 panel card.

Next we have Betty Swinging On A Star

I didn't make a note of the copics for this one but, they're not that different from what is already listed above by looking at the piccy! Seem to use the same colours a lot at the minute! lol Again, all the bits and bobs were from stash, the butterfly is an xcut punch and the image was cut out using Spelbinders lacy squares. I typed up and printed out the sentiment for this one on my lappy.

Finally we have Betty Shower Surprise!

I absolutely love this image! I think she's so fab! I didnt make a note of the copics again on this one, but can tell from looking at her it is the usual suspects! lol Used a memory box border die for the 'waves' and nesties eyelet cirlce and plain circle for the image. I typed the sentiment up on the lappy ad printed it off.
