Ribbons and Buttons at Pollycraft

My internet hasn't been playing ball this weekend, so if I manage to get this typed and scheduled, it'll be a minor miracle. TalkTalk are just wack, their customer service is piss poor to say the least, and to be honest, if it wasn't for Mother Goose paying the bill - I'd take my ass elsewhere. That aside.. 

It's time for another challenge over at Pollycraft Monday. Our lovely Lynsey has set the theme of..



I decided to use the new cutie on the block - Celeste Amberglow.

This cutie is Heartstrings, she is avaiable in the Pollycraft Shop NOW.

I've been keeping my promise of using up stash, and here are some hoarded papers from My Minds Eye - Mabel collection. :) I've kept the layout pretty simple, adding a labels 18 die cut, some slices of ribbon and some ripped patterned paper which I've stamped my sentiment on.

I'm over the moon to say that not one Copic has touched this project. I've finally sussed a ProMarker skin combo that I'm happy with. Needless to say there is always room for improvement, so I've ordered a few more oranges to see if I can create a little more depth. Watch this space. So Copics.. in. your. face. No more sticky images and lids and stuff. :) Now all I need are some high contrast colour combos. Got my little colour book filling up quite nicely, and recommendations - swing them my way.

I often get asked if I decorate the insides of my cards, the answer is always yes - unless requested otherwise. So here is a little shot at the inside, decorated to match the front, but a little less complicated. Next step is to find some sentiment stamp sets which cater for both the front and the insides of cards :) Truth is, I probably already have some, need to sort my stamp drawer out again.

Best hit they hay. Thanks for stopping by my lovelies.
