Hat on a Card

Greetings one and all, I hope you are well.
I realise that the title of this post sounds a little Dr Suess-esque but I couldn't resist!  I have some exciting news to share today too :)

Firstly, my card.  The design used for the focal point of this card is from the wonderful House of Zandra (she has hundreds of fabulous quirky images!).  I cut just a couple of the decoupage layers out as I didn't think the simplicity of this layout called for too much.  A dab of green glitter on the wings of the bird and some of the stems and we're done.  Mounted onto black vellum and finished off with a couple of Candi dots and a simple sentiment which reads: 'Just for you on your Special Day'

I made this a while ago, but with my struggle to find internet haven't had chance to post it before now.

I hope you like it, please let me know what you think.

My online shop is finally open!!! I am so happy about this :)

Baby Layers

Greetings one and all, I trust you are well?
I have had quite the rollercoaster of a life just lately, with a huge dip most recently. So, while going about the slow crawl up again, I am making an effort to get blogging again-when I have internet access that is!
I made this card in a workshop a while ago and have no recollection of ever blogging it-so, here we are!

The stamp is by Hobby Art (I don't recall where I got the 'baby' stamp though!). Coloured with Promarkers and cornered with Candi.
This method is great for using up oddments of card in your 'box' (we all have one right?!) each card is layered on dark blue and placed randomly on the base card, then the topper I made was foam padded on top-sandwiching a doily in between.  The doily, I haphazardly added colour to using distress inks.

I have made a whole bunch of these in different colours! The colouring is relaxing and I could do with reducing the amount of random card oddments I have all over the place!

I hope everyone out there is enjoying the summer (or winter if you are in the Southern Hemisphere!) and takes their crafting with them, where ever they may go :)

Make the most of your day, every day
and, until next time, Happy Crafting!
