Now onto my projects. Today I’ve got two similar cards but I have created them using different techniques. For my first card, I stamped images from the “Way too sweet” set in brown then I used markers to colour them in.

For my second card I used a light brow ink to stamp the background and watercolours to colour my images and to add some ink splashes.

thank you1

I stamped my images using VersaMark ink and dusted the gold powder over the stamped areas using a brush. Then I used another clean, soft brush to remove all traces of powder from the card. The “thank you” sentiment comes from the Baby Zoo stamp set and it's mounted with 3D foam squares.

Now onto my projects. My first card features the Beautiful Lady set. I wanted to keep it monochromatic so I stamped flowers in black and coloured them very lightly.

best wishes


For my next project I used beautiful flowers from the Oriental Orchid set to create simple place cards. First I created blank cards from cut and folded white cardstock. I painted them with a gold glitter and added names created with a label maker. Then I stamped flowers in black, fussy cut them and attached them to my place cards.
