Oh so cute !

Good morning everyone, well it's a bright and sunny day in Cheshire this morning and I can see from watching Paula's show on Hochanda you are loving the Water colour pencils from Tonic Studios,well I don't blame you as they are lovely to work with I have to say the skin tones are fabulous and lots of colours for all different shades.
Be sure to stay tuned to Hochanda today as Paula has lots of fabulous demonstrations to share with you.
The card was created using:-
Nuvo Water colour pencils
Nuvo Water bush
Craft perfect Water colour card
Craft perfect Luna silver pearlecent card 
Marmalades world stamp sets 
Nuvo Black Hybrid ink pads
Tim Holtz Stamping platform
Wills Hand - Cherish
Marmalades world collection of stamps and dies
Corners from Kings cross case
Border die-Beautiful Buckle
Basic layering die set Camelia
White organza ribbon 
Nuvo blue and white bakers twine
Mini white button

The card is a 7x7 easel card decorated in craft perfect Luna silver      pearlecent  card stock also Nuvo Water colour card and bright white craft perfect card the decorative paper is from my stash  the topper was stamped with Tonic Studios black Hybrid ink and then gradually  the colour built up and blended out with a water brush until I was happy with the results this image was coloured using the hair/ Skin tones sets of water colour pencils.
The stopper for the easel was created using matching polka dot card and cutting the edge with the scalloped outer edge die from the Beautiful Buckle die set and this was added to the card on 2mm foam pads. And then decorated with stamps from Marmalades world .

Materials to make this card:-
White 7x7 card blank 
Green card stock
Craft perfect  water colour card
Nuvo Water colour pencils Hair/skin tones
Pearced  squares die set
Marmalades world stamp sets 
Tim Holtz stamping platform 
Nuvo Hybrid black ink pad
Nuvo Water brush
Cockle shell layering die set
Sew pretty Have a beautiful day Circle frame die set
Special wishes stamped sentiment from Kit 5

The card is 7x7 with mat & layered and the white layer has had the pierced square  die set applied and then I
  cotton thread has been added  to the design and stitched all the way around the edge.
Then for the backing I stuck with the green and white colours and used the cockle shell die set as a backing for the sentiment which was placed on the Tim Holtz stamping platform and stamped with Nuvo Black Hybrid ink  ,the gorgeous wee teddy was stamped again using the platform but onto water colour card and then coloured using the hair/skin tones pencils and blending the colours out with a water brush and just adding more colour bit by bit, remember it doesn't matter how long it takes to colour it's not a race enjoy what you are doing  I find water colouring very relaxing and as I have said before it's a good place to start as water colouring is very forgiving if you go over the lines just apply a little water with a brush and remove the colour .
The card was then finished off by adding  a gingham bow and natural wooden button just slightly inked with   nuvo brown hybrid ink.  And a matching mini bow to teddy.

Thank you for joining me today I have another two cards to share with you later xx

The first album I would like to share with you  is Christmas themed I know Christmas, but thinking ahead what a fantastic way of keeping those treasured memories past or present for gifts or yourself to pass down through the family. I think it's so important to put photos in albums with as much journaling as you can ,my husband and I have many photos  in our loft and nobody to ask who these picture's  are as there are no dates or names on the back of the photos and all my husband's side have passed away so i think this is so important.

All the album is decorated with craft perfect card stock apart from the red base card which is fill a box and is 3oogs…
