Port Sunny & Mo's got a new blog

Back from the very sunny Port Sunny (it never rains there!) Had a fabulous time and bumped up my promarker collection so between that and Judy selling me hers I've nearly got a full house :D
I also got some Glamour dust which Tab uses all the time and when I was looking for it I kept thinking "Glimmered and Glamoured" which is her catchphrase lol!
I got a new flower punch and leaf punch and copic spica and a stampavie stamp woo hoo! But leaving the best till last....
I got some starburst stains & moonshadow ink I'd run out of and couldnt resist the gorgeous new plate by Tracey Coates from The Stampman - Butterfly Beauties What really appeals to me about this plate was the fact you can colour it with your promarkers/copics as well as having a play with embossing. I have plans for this one I does!
If you're not a colourer er er er have a look at the Starburst fairies, great with a brayer or starburst stains these!

I also met up with the delightful Jill & Ian from The Stampman, here's Jill doing a SS demo.



Jill has thrown down a challenge or two for me, oooh challenge! The only set of SS I don't have is Japanese Gardens so she gave it to me and challenged me to see what I can do with it! Right, yer on lol lol!! Fankoo Jill *mwha* She'll also be on create and craft on tuesday, check it out!

Whilst I was chatting to Jill one of the traders I see there EVERY time came along. I turned to Jill and said "You know every time I see that lady I think she looks just like Kim Reygate"
Errrr thats because it IS Kim Reygate!!! OMG she's cardmaking ROYALTY!
I think Jill is probably still chuckling about the look on my face hahaha! You see if anybody is responsible for my addiction to ink its Kim Reygate. She has such a beautiful way with colour and her work is very distinctive, she's been a major influence on the things I do. If I hadn't have been so excited I would have remembered I had a Kim inspired ATC in my box right there lol!

Right better get this shown coz the clock is ticking!

Oh yes Mo Manning has got herself a challenge blog and my mate Sheilakins is also on the DT! Well done Sheila, I'm soooo pleased for you (and a tad envious lol!)
The opening challenge is to use "Perple" as its Bella & Bronte's favourite colour. Actually I saw a little girl in the supermarket the ther day who looked just like Bella, had a little chuckle to myself! Don't tell me it probably was lol lol!
So what have I done with this one?
Image is Holly Fairy and I went for grey with the perple coz I'm doing a swap on crafty carmaking yahoo group and its Grey and own choice so seeing as I've never done grey and perple before I thought I'd give it a whirl :)

Hair is perple, all coloured wiv promarkers. Dress is grey and I went over it with shimmerz pixie dust. Perple paper and flowers are starburst stains Jazzy Jivin Purple. Flower centres are just grey card and I glamour dusted them
