At last I've found somewhere in the U.K. that stock Pink Cat Studio Stamps. They're made in Canada and I was about to order direct from Pink Cat Studios when I discovered http://diestodiefor.com/. Luckily, they had two of the sets I was after in stock, Cat Plate 1 and Tweety.
I placed my order yesterday at 17.33 and guess what, they arrived today! I was amazed. What service, definitely recommended. Thank you to Tracy.
Of course I had to have a play straight away, and this is the first attempt.
The background paper is from DCWV Neutrals stack, and DCWV patterned papers. The image has been coloured with Faber Castell watercolour pencils and Nestabilities die cut. I have added some brads for interest. The sentiment is one of the stamps from the set.

Yesterday, I was a very lucky girl, my lovely husband bought me a new camera, yeah. My new toy has an amazing 10 million pixels. I've had a little play with it, but it has so many settings that I don't think I've done it justice yet with this picture. I'll have to carry on playing until I get it right.
Anyway, I really love this cute little character from Penny Black. I stamped him on watercolour paper first and then coloured him with Faber Castell pencils. I used my nestabilities to cut him out and mounted onto some silver card. The 'surprise' stamp is from HOTP.
I used pink petticoat background papers and just to finish I added a flower and a few pearls from my stash.

This gave me a great opportunity to dust off my old Sizzix machine (it's been a bit redundant since my new found love of stamping).
I decided on the Mannequin dress die. I used a Do-craft card for the background and to cut the dress. I used my Crop-a-dile to add a few eyelets along the edges and finished off with some dotty ribbon.
