No Black oooh nooo!

Hi there, Today I am sharing a card for Stampotique
  Samantha Read is our hostess this week and she is challenging us to "Anything but Black"
  Here is what Samantha says about this challenge:

"The first thing I usually do after choosing which stamp I'm going to use is to reach for my black inkpad. So I'm challenging myself and you to make anything you fancy so long as there is no black ink or paint etc. Have fun!"
So here is my card,

It is quite a challenge not to use black at all , so I used purple and then a little warm grey for her shadow.
 Moody was my stamp and I didn't find her moody at all in fact I rather like her attitude!!! Coloured with Copics and a popped up hands and sign , 'Awesome' die is a Lil' Inker :D Thank you for joining me here today, I hope all is well with you and yours, mwah!! Gay xx

Stampotique, Mums

Hi Folks,
Today I'm sharing a Stampotique card and this week it's  Mother's Day ( in America) fast approaching and we are celebrating Mom's this week. 
Show us your best "Motherly Love" creations, our hostess is Claudine and this is her challenge to you, here is what Claudine says about this challenge:

"Let's make something with our Mom's in mind, show Mom how much she means to you"
so here is my card

 It's Topher and he has a card for his Mum, embossed copper, coloured with copics and sanded to be a bit shabby. Daniel's Hearts
and France's Amonite' fit into the background and the hearts have been filled with Diamond Glaze for dimension. I had a great time! 
Got a head cold so not feeling too bright, I needed something to distract me and this fitted the bill nicely.
Thanks for joining me here today :D Hugs Gay xx
