I’ve completed another saturated canary card tonight and again I’ve tried to go for a more vintage look. I’m still working on how to achieve this and ink the papers properly …but will keep practising! I’ve a friend in mind to give this card to although that wasn’t the plan when I started,a s initially it was just for fun, I do need to make an anniversary card for next week and daughters birthday card for the end of January… so they are next on my list.
I had started my daughter’s card before Christmas, until she announced whilst home that she wasn't keen on “people” cards like Tilda!!! Shock...horror!...I had coloured two separate Tilda’s and was working on both as I wasn't sure which one I preferred!...so now I’m looking for a cute animal stamp /digi to use instead and today I’ve saw that I won the random prize from Glitter "n" Sparkle for Di’s Digi Downloads so I’m sure I will find the perfect stamp there as they have a huge range of cute ones …how lucky am I!
Sorry about the colours it looks peach and grey but its more pink and green. I think Its because the photos where taken this evening with no natural light source.
I used some of my wonderful Christmas goodies on this card including my copics, and dies including the lovely scalloped label die I used for Jules, edge border and spiral flower. … It’s also the first time I’ve used vellum another pressie that I think will get lots of use, I was surprised how well it die cut although a few of the corners I die cut did split/crack slightly.
I went for more green tones this time as noticed it was nearly a blue card again this week, but I steered away …it was a close call.
we put all the Christmas decorations away today, the house always looks so bare once everything gets packed away; we usually have it all done by now but haven’t had the time this week …only 355 days to Christmas…can’t wait… LOL I love it! I’m happy I’ve had my “me” time and craft fix so good to go for another week.
Hope you all have a wonderful week hope to be back soon … hugs Andrea x
