Hello again! Here are my latest makes and I have to say I think I am going backwards. The next birthday girl on MSE may, ....... dare I say it, have a bought card if things don't improve very quickly.
The top card was a luckily a pre coloured image and cried out for a pretty 'look' so I used some dotty papermania papers with ribbon from crafty ribbons and tried combining the dots because it's a look I like. I think I tried to get too much on one card.
The other one was me trying to do 'elegant'. I embossed plain card with my new folder from Little Claire, stuck on all the shiny gems, then found the whole image was a bit too tall to fit on the card blank with an even border so I chopped it down a bit and tried to get it central. I added a sentiment from Craftwork cards which I chalked to give a bit of contrast to all the white. The best bit on the card was the green backing paper Bazzil basics which was already slightly textured with a swiss dotty pattern that I'd not seen before.
Then I compounded the sins by taking carp photos.
I do hope the recipients read this blog and know that in this case the thought really did count for far far more that the finished atricles! ATRICLES??? I meant articles.
