Attention span of a gnat

I'll admit I have a very short attention span when it comes to new stash. I start playing with one thing then veer off to something totally different and before I know it I'm knee deep in a pile of boxes, inks & stamps and the table is covered with bits of dst backing.
This is using lavender lace & mellow sage shadow stamped with Baroque Motifs and versamark with an image from Blooming With Beauty. Coloured with f&c watercolour pencils, think I used mauve, olive green yellowish and light ultramarine.

This is a case for me to store my embroidery needles and is nothing more than an a4 sheet folded into 8 and cut to create pockets. Perfect plum and pale plum cs, image stamped in perfect plum using thefrom the Mr & Mrs set and the matching wheel using versamark. Organza ribbon from stash.

Not too sure on this one, same stamps as the last but stamped in bashful blue and matted with brocade blue and designer papers in bashful blue. Scallop edge punch and I used a white gel pen to add some detail. I did add some to the dots from the pattern wheel but think it's ruined it... I might see if I can repair the damage by adding a whitewash in some of the flowers.

Pocket Silhouettes this time and I've used the Stampin' Up! markers to colour the stamp as well as the white grosgrain ribbon. Lovely lilac and green galore are the colours used with Lovely Lilac and Chocolate chip cs.

I don't normally do bright primary colours but with the lorry image from Loads Of Love I couldnt resist. Brilliant blue, tempting turqouise & real red cs with the same coloured SU markers. Those eagle eyes might be noticing the sparkle on them... winsor & newton Iridescent medium.. painted over the top of the image before I 3d decoupaged it. Fab stuff and because the pigment level in the markers is so high it doesnt water them down at all. Scalloped square punch, sentiment, parcles and man in lorry from the Loads Of Love accessories set and a cuttlebug folder.

I've been missing my cricut and scal so decided it was time to make a babys bottle template.
Bashful blue cardstock, pram from Fun & Fast Notes, Baby from All in the Family. White grosgrain ribbon and some lace trim from stash. Doesnt really show on the pic but the handle from the pram didn't survive the knife so I used a small piece of wire instead.
