Background printing

I used an all over leaf stamp in two colours to meet the hand made background challenge this month at Lets Craft and Create. The shape of the leaves was similar to a tree metal die in my tool kit so that matched in well. The fallen leaves were suitable for a Sympathy card and this became the sentiment.

Using a sketch

I love meeting the challenge of using a sketch. This time at CCC Digi the sketch is a good one and fitted well with the sponsored image. I used some new circle flower die shapes and some favourite colours. The rose background paper reflects the flower shaped dies and the roses in the artwork.

Seaside series

I'm providing some specific tourist cards for our local beach ..... Mangawhai , Northland NZ. The Museum shop has a full stand of my cards. So far I've made a few dozen beach style and some NZ themes too. This card is a sample of the beachy ones , more to follow when I remember to photograph them before taking them to the shop. Summer is almost over so it should slow down when the tourists thin out.

Pearly Pair for CCC Digi

My family just love owls so this image felt right at home with me. The theme is 'add pearls' at CCC Digi Creations this time so I used them as an embellishment to go with the copper highlights. A very subdued palette made the copper stand out.

'Twas Easter at LCC

The theme at Let's Craft and Create is Easter for this month. I got the images for this card from my new Brother printer creative package. Tryptiques do work well for balance.

Buzzy Bumble Bee

Add some glitter in this fortnights challenge at CCC Digi. The image matched up great with some bee paper I had saved. The glitter is on the brad in the centre of the flower. I guess glitter is not my usual "thing".
