Domino Dangly

I made this domino dangly for Francesca as a thank you for bringing me home from Artsycrafts. The domino was backed with paper and the fronts and sides dabbed with a few alcohol inks, I cut down a leafy charm and stuck that onto the the domino front and added further beads and charms.
I took these pictures in the evening so the lighting was poor.
The second photo gives a glimpse of the beautiful alcohol ink gold.
This fits in with the current challenge over on Happy Daze for Dangly things and also The Grungy Monday 13 using Tim Holtz alcohol inks.

Forum Birthday Card

This card is for my good friend Kaz, hope you had a good birthday moo. I've been saving this stamp for your birthday card.
Any back to the stamp it's another delightful stamp from the Cornish Heritage Farm "Little people" so unfortunately it's discontinued. I stamped onto very smooth card with memento ink and roughly coloured in with the Marvy le plume alcohol ink pens. These pens have a soft nib which are great for a watercolour effect but not so good with fine detail.
