Grateful Gloria

Hello Everyone
It's my turn to host the Art by Miran blog this morning and I've something a little different for you.  Well for me anyway, it not often I make something other than a card

This is  Grateful Gloria one of the latest girls available from Whimsy Stamps
 Isn't she sweet?

I started out with a little wooden heart which I covered with some lovely First Editon Christmas papers.   The stamp I coloured with copics and once it was dry I very gently dampened the back and rubbed as much of the paper off as possible without damaging the image.  I then decoupaged this onto the heart and added three coats of modge podge.
A little braid round the edges, a ribbon and a few glitter dots finished it off.

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a great weekend

another gorgeous girl

Hello Everyone
I'm praying Mr Blogger plays nicely and posts this as at the moment I am having some relaxation time at our second home in Turkey.  We're enjoying being away from the terrible Scottish weather and awakening to sunshine in the morning.  Wish we could stay forever.

Today's card is showcasing on of Miran's latest girls.  Isn't she sweet.
I killed two birds with one stone with this card as I needed one for myself and this gorgeous 
girl was just perfect.

Coloured as always with copics.   
papers - Lidl
sentiment - made on pc
flowers from me stash and a selection of dies

If you'd like to buy this gorgeous girl then head on over to the shop but be prepared to spend more than a few pennies as all of the images are brilliant

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Have a brilliant weekend.  I know we will :)

Hello Everyone
I'm sure you've all seen the gorgeous new release from Miran for Whimsy Stamps.
Oh my, they are gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!!!!

 I couldn't wait to get the copics out and colour up the gorgeous  Angelica 

I've left it plain and simple.  Choosing not to use any pattern papers to show of this huge stamp in all it's glory.  This is a 5.5 x5.5 card and as you can see it fits it perfectly
A little die cut Christmas bauble and a sentiment was all it needed.  Oh and a little bit of glossy accents on the string lights

Do check out the  shop to see all the wonderful images ArtbyMiran  has to offer!

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a great crafty weekend

Anyway I'm showing off  the lovely and newly released Joyful Joanne today

Isn't she a wee cutie?  I just love her cosy hat and scarf :)
