Just for you

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAJust for you – An A5 card using papers from the Craftwork Cards “Al Fresco” pad. It is such pretty, bright pad – so cheerful. I have used parts of several papers to mat and layer on this card to continues the cycling theme that has been a major part of our summer this year. The “Tour De France” starting in Yorkshire this year has given everyone a great sense of community here, along with a renewed interest in cycling. We have had a wonderful summer this year, and while it is still here, I’m grabbing it with both hands x

Thoughts of Summer

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA tag I’ve made using the Aspire Crafts “Cut and Colour” Collection. It has all been coloured using distress inks – Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Barn Door. I love the flexibility of this collection as it looks so elegant left in its natural state – white with foiling, or coloured with the many different mediums available x

Pretty in Pink

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI have used an Aspire Crafts dekromount tag for the base, onto which I have stenciled with texture paste. I added Micro beads to the texture paste before I stenciled it on. This makes the end result quite different to texture paste on its own. After it was dry, I have brushed over the whole tag with 3 different distress inks – Peacock Feathers, Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserve – before highlighting the flowers with a pearl Brillance pad. I added a vellum die-cut butterfly which has been brushed with matching distress inks, and gems. To finish I stamped the “Create” stamp from Graphic 45 and added ribbon and a sparkly button X

A Wonderful Day

An MDF tag I decorated a while back. Not sure where the papers are from, but I have it in my craft room. The sentiment makes me feel good and reminds me to be cheerful whatever the weather xOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
