Hope you've all had a lovely, crafty day today. I've really enjoyed playing with another Tilda from the Autumn Kit, they're so sweet and adorable! And I must say I haven't used nearly enough paper from the Basic Grey Wisteria pad so it was time to put that right today........ spent far too long stroking it, hee hee!
I was chuffed to bits when I saw the theme for this week's PTW Challenge as my card is full of faux stitching. It's the only kind I do because me and sewing machines just don't mix. Not that I won't persevere, but I think the faux stitching is pretty realistic anyway. In an attempt to ring in the changes with this card i decided not to adorn it with flowers and leaves in my usual style - instead I cut some of the beautiful dragonflies from the paper and added some flat backed pearls to them...... I'm really pleased as they look rather pretty!
As you can see, another 'fake' is Tilda's pearls, she just can't afford the real thing you know, despite dropping the biggest of hints to Edwin..... men heh!
As usual I coloured the image with Polys and Koh pencils, I'm feeling very at home with this colouring medium now but I feel I should stretch myself soon and see if I can get to grips with those Distress Inks!!
Well we're having homemade pizza and salad for tea so I'll be back in a flash when we've polished it off!
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
