La Isla Bonita

Well, today hasn't been the most productive of started well but then the plumber arrived to fix the tap...and from that point on, I haven't known whether to laugh or cry!! It could've been such a simple job but as always, you're completely reliant on the workman and it's turned out to be a nightmare!! Oh well, tomorrow's another day and until then, I shall try to keep smiling!!

In the meantime, the good news is, I've managed to find my mojo that just lately, seems to be escaping me on a regular basis and I did make this card to share with you all...
On this card, I used a combination of Kuretake colouring mediums, including the Zig Art and Graphic Twin pens, their wonderful new Wink of Stella range, which if you look closely at some of these photos, you can just see the beautiful shimmer that they give and were the perfect pen for all the detail on the dress and fan. And last but not least, I've also been trying out their Kurecolor pens. If you love your alcohol pens, Copics or Promarkers and you haven't tried this range from Kuretake...then it is a must because these pens are fabulous and they are already becoming my new favourite crafting item and shh, might even replace my beloved Promarkers!! The main reason that I love them so much is because together with a broad tip on the one end, you also have a very fine tip which is brilliant for detail work!
The stamp is from Kanban and as soon as I saw it, it reminded me Madonna, in her La Isla Bonita video. Oh, how I've always wanted to wear a dress like that!! All the papers that I've used to make the roses and also on the background, are from Craftwork Cards and as a finishing touch I added ribbon and some die cut flourishes.

I hope you like today's share and that you all have a fabulous Wednesday!!
See you soon...
Love Emma


  1. oh and black, my favourite! :D and what a fitting title as well...and knowing you, fitting that it would remind you of a Madonna song! ;p

    but it fits so very well with the image..a gorgeous flamingo dancer in an equally stunning dress! and I like how you went with white flowers instead of red ones...I think it adds a nice contrast to the red/black overall look!

    just brilliantly done! :D

  2. Gorgeous card & the white flowers were a brilliant idea.

  3. WOW, really stunning Emma! Fabulous stamp and a beautifully carfted card. xx

  4. Simply stunning - love those flowers! Jo x
