Lawn Fawn Bunny

Just had to make a quick card as I love this cute bunny stamp from (Lawn Fawn Stamps)which I bought from Jay Gee's Nook, pop in a have a look as she has lovely goodies at great prices.

Wedding Card

Wedding card I made using the Kaiser craft(Tea at Elsie's)doiley stamps,and the background has been inked.
Have just given you a very quick idea how I did the background by the photo.
Brayer,ink pad and white cardstock (cardstock is the most important thing as you get different effects depending on the surface whether it is glossy or matt and you can also wet your brayer and roll over the card before rolling on the ink).
The samples are a little different to the card as I could not find what cardstock I used to make the card,but you get the idea just have fun with it and see what you can come up with hope this helps Judith.
