Once again a huge thank you for all the lovely comments you left on my last card..... and especially about my colouring..... but I have to come clean, I just can't take all the credit! You see it's all thanks to the wonderful tutorial posted here this weekend by the super talented Moni. I found it so useful to read through what she said and I certainly think it has moved my colouring up a level.... who would have thought of using black to add definition like that. So a huge thank you must go to Moni but I am delighted that you noticed on my card too ;o)
For the card I'm showing you today I've used a wonderful technique showcased on Norma's blog here, where she reveals how you can create doily mats for your images using various Martha Stewart border punches..... another talented lady at work don't you think? I'm entering this week's Sketch and Stash Challenge and have followed the fabulous sketch which Lols has provided...... my new stash is the Greetings Farm image which I treated myself to recently using a Craft Emporium voucher given to me by my sweet friend Chris. I've used Basic Grey Lemonade papers and Prima flowers. Once again I've added some paper piecing to my card which I always love to do. This card is for my hubby's aunt who has a birthday very soon.
Well I won't stay and waffle on any longer as I'm still off work with the lurgy and trying to get plenty of rest.
Thanks so much for stopping by to see what I've been up to ;o)
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!!
