The Lurve Tree !

One of my favourite blogs to look at is the Toodles and Binks blog as I love their range of stamps and I love to see what their DT have been up to and what amazing creations they have made with their stamps. I was lucky enough to win their latest stamp "In My Garden Love Grows" which is this gorgeous love tree and sentiment. I have made a couple of cards and this is one of them. I shall blog the other one tomorrow.

I used some cream Bazzill as the base card.

The patterned papers are BasicGrey "Bittersweet". I stamped the red paper with some PaperArtsy stamps in brown ink.

The images are :

Tilda (which I received in a RAK) sitting on a Magnolia bench. These have been coloured with ProMarkers. Mustard and sandstone (hair), ivory and blush (skin), satin and sandstone (top and stripes on socks), rose pink and blossom (dress, bows and stripes on socks). The bench has been coloured using cinnamon and henna. These have been raised on little sticky pads.

The tree is by Toodles and Binks and can be purchased at Stamp Galaxy . I have coloured the tree with ProMarkers, cinnamon and henna (trunk), ruby and poppy (hearts). I have covered the hearts in glossy accents. I also chalked the background with blue and green chalk. I'm not sure that it should be a rectangle, I feel it "sticks out" too much. I shall have to rethink this next time.

The flowers have been cut with a EK Success Retro Flower punch and I have added two Hero Arts brown flowers, spacers from my stash and two pink BasicGrey brads. The leaves are a Leone Em leaf punch.

I hope you managed to escape the worst of the weather last night. We didn't get any snow at all, just lashing rain and high winds but the problem is now flooding in this area.

My heart goes out to all those poor people in Australia, it is such terrible news coming from there.

Happy crafting, keep warm and keep well.
