More inkyness!

Hi lovelies, just want to say a huge thank you for the support I've found amongst my blogging buddies, it's really made a difference to some dire days. I've had some better moments though whilst making a few cards......

The cards below were made from an inkylicious stamp which I bought at the GNPE in Harrogate last week and a freely off the craft stamper. Love the simplicity of them, made them for a special lady and her family - hope she likes them!
The background for the stain was just brushed on over a torn piece of paper to make a cloudscape sort of thing.

The top cards are made with a do crafts stamp set I've had forever but not used so that was one of the first sets I picked up to bring to the hospital with me. The background paper is made from a little flower that's in the set as are the borders. The rest is just stamped and water coloured with my stamping up mini inks - an absolute must if you craft away from home, although I've now bought some of the distress ink minis, I wonder if I need to carry both around with me.

They all fit so beautifully into peel off boxes along with the Versamark minis - what more could I ask?
Have a great week hope the sun stays out!
X Michelle

These are stunning, Michelle. I'm glad they are helping you through. How brilliant to have such a lovely box of inkiness.
I had to go and get me one of those little drawers from your last few posts, you have totally inspired me, especially as even DH commented on how beautiful the butterfly one was!! Hope that brings you a smile today.
Take care my friend.
Hugs Lisax

The cards at the top are so pretty Michelle. I particularly love the one with the stemmed roses.

The bottom cards are gorgeous too and quite atmospheric. I love the quote on the right hand one.
