Happy easter to you all and I hope you're enjoying the long weekend. It's raining here but at least we've not had more snow like some areas have and as it means that I won't be able to get out in the garden I shall have to have a crafty play instead.
Here's a quick 6x4 inch easter card I've made with snippets of LOTV paper, a Sylvia Zet topper, flowers, gems and a sentiment left over from a decoupage sheet.
I made this for
Let's Craft and Create challenge 'anything goes + option easter'
Country View challenge 'postcard 6x4 inch size'
Next up is my first christmas card of the year which I made for March Rudolph Days challenge. I used my new Penny Black stamp 'Santa's Visit' along with the Misti. My first attempt was to use TH distress markers to colour the stamp a bit at a time but I gave up part way through as I was getting it all wrong! So next attempt was to lightly stamp the whole image with Memento London Fog and then I found it much easier to add the colour with the distress markers, although I'm still not happy with the way the sky turned out. I matted the image onto some metallic card and then onto a hammered effect card base, before finally adding some Stickles.
Don't you just love holidays and the emails you get tempting you to buy with the promise of a discount...... and yes I have already given in and placed orders for some new Uniko and MFT goodies! So now I'd better get off and have a play with some more of my NBUS stamps - while scoffing on an easter egg or two! Thanks for popping by and I hope you have a great weekend.
