Crating at last

I have finally managed to get in a bit of crafting done now my hand is somewhat better (still not completely but we wont worry about that lol) anyway i though i would share a couple of cards i managed to complete.
The ideas for these I pinched from a very cool lady who owns a certain shop you may visit and also has a great blog.
All 3 cards were really simple, first i stamped the images onto card with a brown archival ink (i used brown as the base cards were cream and i though it would be a better contrast) i then cut the images into smaller pieces and inked the edges with the same brown ink to kinda frame them.
Next i coloured them with some of my new Copic markers (these are fab BTW) I picked a simular colour ink (i used my distress inks) to match the most promanant in each pic and stamped a swirl in that respective colour onto the card base.
I then mounted the pic with foam tape to add a bit of depth, to finish i just added a little Thank You embellishment i got free with one of my craft mags.
And hay presto 3 quick and quite cool cards.
