Here are my two DT creations using Blue and Lilac.......

My first, is a little scene, created using the following stamps...
Zen Tall Mushrooms, Dandelions, Birds, and Field Grass,
 which can all be seen HERE.

Using Distress inks, I created the background, I stamped everything, then using Inktense pencils and a water brush, I coloured in the mushrooms,
 and added loads of Stickles to finish.

My second card uses only two stamps...
Chinese Lantern and Zentangle Angelic Words,
which can be seen HERE.

I stamped the words using Embossing ink and clear powder, and heat embossed. Using Distress inks, I shaded the whole piece of card, then buffed the ink off the words. I stamped the Chinese Lanterns, once on the inked card, and once on a white piece. I coloured the lanterns with Inktense pencils and a water brush, fussy cut them, and attached them with glue gel, then added stickles.

Thank you so much again for visiting, and leaving such lovely comments,

Big hugs, Pauline xxxx
