Thank you Miss Pixie ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. Today I used the lovely new die I last won from Di’s Snippets Challenge. I decided I wanted to use my Paperbabe Tree Hugs stamp and Little Claire Volkswagen camper van to create a card inspired by Kawaii art. It was so much fun making the tree and van look more like anime comic images, and, here it is …
An A6 card which is good to post
I have actually managed to photograph some of the AquaTints sparkle
and Spectrum Sparkle on the VW camper!
You can see how much fun I had lol!
It's funny how the Spectrum Sparkle can look like white dots at times!
A final look
Created for me and especially for these Challenges

Try It On Tuesday Challenge Use Your Scraps: the tree, camper & die cut
It’s been a while since I last tried to create a Northern Lights sky and that obsession has never fully left me because I haven’t completely gotten it right yet. I had an inkling that the AB sky would work with the Kawaii stamps. I knew that colouring the sky with rich deep colours would mean any over stamping would be an issue. So I created my AB sky then stamped the tree and camper van onto white card snippets before colouring them and fussy cut them out.
I think it has and I had a lot of fun creating this one. The sky colour is a little too dark but it’s nearer than my previous attempts of capturing the look so that’s good and it was such fun to use these stamps this way too. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
