Manchester Convention - Swaps and Card Candy

I've had a busy summer so haven't blogged as much as I should.  Hopefully I'll get more time now.

Here are my swaps and card candy.

I've used Chalk Talk stamp set and made it look more vintage using pinks and beige.

Wetlands Stamp set was used to stamp the birds and the grass. The rest of the scene is done using sponges and brushes. The flying birds are drawn with a marker and the highlighting with a white pen.

And here are a few of the swaps together. I'm new to 'painting' scenery with inks so the sky and water colour does vary.

I'm going to Stampin' Up convention in Manchester tomorrow, can't wait! There will be around five hundred card makers and scrap bookers to share ideas with. I will post some of the swaps when I return home.
