Hello, lovely friends...hope you've all had a wonderful start to your week. I know I promised to share this post today and would've liked it to appear this morning but I'm really not sure who stole my Tuesday ~ it just disappeared. One minute, it was morning...the next, it was time to start dinner and in between time ~ it was crafting and chocolate all the way!!

So this is the card that should have been here earlier but better late than never and I hope you like it...
This was another of the cards that I made for the Kuretake shows on Create & Craft and when I started to think about these cards, I really wanted to choose stamps that would showcase the pens perfectly and give a wonderful platform for the rich pigment of colour that Kuretake's products deliver. And for this particular little creation, I chose to use Sheena Douglas' Paint Fusion stamps and I was so pleased with the result. And that butterfly is one of THE most gorgeous stamps I have ~ it is stunning!!
To complete the card, the quote is from Tim Holtz and stamped onto a scalloped nestie and the scalloped card blank and Candi is from Craftwork Cards.
If you look closely on some of these photos, you can see the beautiful shimmer from the Wink of Stella pens. These pens are fabulous when you want just that hint of glitter and 'not full on' glitter!

Thank you for all your comments on my last post and a big hello to my new followers, it's lovely to have you on board. I now need only another three followers to get to the BIG 100!!!

See you all tomorrow with the next post!
Love Emma

Beautiful! I saw one of the shows - amazing pens, wasted on me though. I can't colour for toffee!

Gorgeous card, Emma. Love seeing how to use Sheena's stamps in a different way than with paint. Will have a go using stamps with my promarkers at some point. Zo x

I love what you've done with Sheena's stamps, Emma, that butterfly looks stunning and the TH quote is set off perfectly. I watched the repeat of the show with the pens and loved all the demos.
