Floating Softly

Morning my lovelies, Friday at last, hope you're all well and have had a great week.

This week I've made a card using one of my very first stamp purchases.  This beauty is called 'Floating Softly' from Stamps Happen by the artist Frances Mahon.  I first saw this image in a Dutch stamping magazine.  When I bought her Stamps Happen stamps weren't widely available in the UK and I had to buy her from the US.  I bought a few others at the same time and have stamped some up to colour and will show you those over the next few weeks.  I love the detail and magical feel of these stamps.

She's been coloured with copics on Neenah classic card.  I admit I coloured her before I picked the paper, so the colours aren't quite a match, but I still like it.  The backing paper is Firefly by Prima and I've used Memory Box corner bow flourishes.  Again, she's been kept simple because she will be winging her way to Australia shortly.


I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:

  25. WOW - Caz . . . you have ROCKED this stamp. I love the image and considered buying these stamps when I saw them years ago, but didn't think I would be able to colour them in very well. You have coloured the image superbly. I LOVE the card you've made.

  26. Hi Caz

    This is just so beautiful, I can see why you had to have that stamp. Loving the Memory Box die - I have just bought that and after seeing it on your card I'm glad I have.

    Thank you for coming to visit me and leaving me some very much appreciated comments.

    Take care and have a good week.
