I've used two new techniques for my card today and I'm really pleased with how it turned out! Firstly, I cased the lovely Kathy's cards and added lots of white acrylic paint to the edges of my papers. I so love this effect and Kathy is the absolute expert, her cards are stunning! Thank you for the inspiration hun, I'll be using this technique again for sure! Secondly, I stamped and then coloured onto Kraft paper from Basic Grey..... it takes a bit of getting used to colouring with my pencils on this type of paper as the effect is much more subtle, but I really love the result! The image is from Motivet and she is one of my faves at the moment.... what a sweetie! You can see that I created my flowers and leaves by cutting out part of the design paper which is from Basic Grey's Wisteria range.
It was a pleasure to make this card because I know the recipient will be chuffed..... it's for my boss at work and she always really appreciates the time and effort that goes into making a handmade card.
Well I'm off to clean the house within an inch of its life again..... we've got another viewing later and one of these days we might just drop lucky with an offer. All this cleaning lark just gets in the way of my crafting time, lol!!
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!!
