You are currently on HOP B and should have arrived from VIV’S BLOG.

I used some of the fantastic Make it Crafty background elements to create a backdrop for Kenny K’s Brooklyn Babe.  Very fun, and I can see myself using the urban elements with lots of different stamps!

To finish off the card, I added one of Ann’s fab City Talk digital sentiments.

Urban Love

Hope you’re having a good week.  Lots of positive thoughts and best wishes to any of you who are in areas of the UK affected by the awful events this week.

Now, finally, I have something to show you!  Truth be told, I have a box filled with polybags, which in turn are each filled with coloured images and papers, embellishments etc ready to be assembled into cards.  That box has been sitting untouched for over a week while I have been finishing off some projects that unfortunately I can’t share with you just yet.

So, this is the first of my “here’s one I half made earlier” cards!

I absolutely love The Greeting Farm images, particularly the Creeper Crew range, so this little scene was a pleasure to colour up and put together.

The Greeting Farm Creeper Crew available at www.quixoticpaperie.co.uk

The two characters are from the fantastic Creeper Crew Creepin’ Kit, which gives you SEVEN characters and EIGHT coordinating sentiments all for £34.99.  Great value, and there’s a lot of fun to be had with these images.

The fab Street Art Background is one of the awesome Whimsy Stamps background stamps, which I love.

Coloured with Copics on Make it Colour Blending Card (now also available in 50 sheet packs).  Unfortunately I don’t have the full list of Copics used, as I coloured this a while ago.  If you have any questions though, ask away and I will try to help!
