oldest to newest

Long time no blog and blogger have obviously changed how they do things so I can get one picture to load but not two ! If anyone out there has my mojo please can I have it back ? its gone awol at the moment and doesn`t seem to want to come back. The above picture or scan as I couldn`t be doing with fighting with the digital camera today is of a card made with my new stamps which came this morning from the company which were formally known as Graphicus. I used two colours of brilliance ink, pearlescent poppies appropriately enough and crimson copper. Kept things simple as thats about all I can manage at the moment.

The next card is using the very first set of stamps I ever bought when the company was called Graphicus after watching Glenda demonstrating them on Create and Craft. Goodness knows how many years ago that was now but I have to say I still love these images as much as ever. I`ve just tried to update it by doing a one layer card as inspired by the ones done by Joanne Wardle in Craft Stamper magazine. I sponged distress inks through a circle template onto the card then overstamped the Koi carp image and the wind at the top. I used Sukara sparkly pens to colour in the Koi carp. So there you go two cards if blogger has now allowed me to put the pictures up. Thanks for looking x Vinny
