Beauty in Blue

Well friends what a day it has been!  The weather here has been awful what with the wind and the rain all day as I sit and write this the sky is blue but very cold and the wind seems to have dropped at last!!!  I have spent an enjoyable day in my craft room beavering away getting my samples done for Samantha from HobbyFun they will be on display at Bluewater show between the 2 - 5 February.

Here is a card I made last night!


The card base is from Kanban which I have used landscape for a change.  I have added paper from my stash which I think too is from Kanban.  I used Crafter's Companion Stick and Stay and then placed the paper over the base of the card and cut around this which covers the base. fI have Spellbinder dies that match the base of the card so I have cut out the first layer using Navy blue pearlescent card.  The image (I have had a while and can't remember the name of the company) I stamped onto Neenah watercolour card and then cut this out using a smaller die.  I coloured the image in with a mixture of watercolour pencils and Sakura glitter pens.  I have added Card Candy from my stash.  I have added lace and blue ribbon joined together and added white and blue hat pins.  To finish this off I have added the sentiment.


Thank you for stopping by today

Hello Linda, love the card! The subject is one of my favourite genres and the colours are so fresh and sophisticated. It's also one of my favourite Spellbinder die shapes - so it's all good for me.
