For You

I have made this card for my daughter's mother-in-law who is going through a stressful period while awaiting medical investigations.  The sentiment is rather difficult to see as it is embossed in gold but it say 'for you'.  I do hope she likes it.

This is a Sugar Nellie stamp and the papers are from K&Company - the flowers and lace from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I coloured with distress inks and used a Martha Stewart punch for the flower border.

Sarah Kay Image

This is another example of trying to perfect the art of colouring.  I have booked onto the LOTV Masterclass in October and really looking forward to picking up some tips and ideas.

My First Blog Card

This is the first card I have posted to my blog and it is the most recent one I have made.  I am quite pleased with the result as I have been practising on the colouring and particularly the shading aspect of it.  I was introduced to Fat Pads by a fellow blogger which consists of Fabriano watercolour paper which works really well with distress inks,  I am amazed at the difference.  Please take a trip around my blog and if you have any suggestions/advice they will be most welcome.
