Spotlight embossed flowers

Inspired by Seven Hills Craft's September challenge, I thought I would have a go at spotlighting not only the colour but also the embossed outlines. Technically, this turned out pretty much how I hoped it would. If only I had remembered to keep my hand out of the still-damp marker, which meant I had to… Continue reading Spotlight embossed flowers

Christmas: Poinsettia and pine

These cards were created on 12th and 13th November; day 12 and 13 of The Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge. Working my way through some of my unused stamps, I decided to use this poinsettia to make a couple of more traditionally styled Christmas cards.

Birthday: Purple flowers and texture paste

When I know that the person I'm making a card for will really appreciate the effort that goes into making it, I do tend to push myself to try something different. And that's what happened with this card. How: The card base was cut to size and the front was die cut on a curve. A… Continue reading Birthday: Purple flowers and texture paste

The Daily Marker 30 day colouring challenge #1

What: I was asked if I would join in wishing a happy birthday to Maggie on Instagram. Her birthday coincides with the first day of Kathy Racoosin’s second Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge, so some colouring was definitely called for. How: This started off with a bit of masking and quite a lot of… Continue reading The Daily Marker 30 day colouring challenge #1
