Lace Friendship Card

This card I made for two challenges:- Daring Cardmakers challenge is to make a Love and Friendship card and My Time to Craft challenge is to use lace on your card. I used cream cardstock and a penny black stamped image which I was sent by a friend. I simply coloured the image with watercolour pencils and then matted it onto some pink patterend paper. I stamped the Friendship sentiment onto white card and again matted it onto pink patterned paper. I then added some lace down the left and right hand side of the card.

Another Tag

Good morning, it's quite a nice morning here - cold but no frost. Hope everyone has a good day.

I made this tag for a friend, hopefully Royal Mail have delivered it by now. I used distress inks for the background of the tag. I put some of the ink onto a craft sheet and spritzed it with water and then laid my tag down on it - I love the effect from this technique and you always get something different each time. I used Cats Life Press stamps and stamped them using Broken China distress ink and sprinkled them with clear embossing powder and heated them. I then stamped the "Butterfly Fairy" onto a piece of blue patterned paper and then cut her out. I cut off her wings and replaced them with a pair of gold German Scrap wings. On the back of the tag I stamped using rusty brown and black stazon and also edged the tag with the rusty brown stazon.
