Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well and managing to keep warm in this cold weather.
We had a nice day out yesterday at the Oyster Crafts Demo day and mini craft show. Although I have to say it really was a 'Mini' craft show, there were only a handful of craft stands.
Oyster Paper Crafts had a stand with two lovely demonstrators, one showing how to make foam flowers, the other was demonstrating Penny Black silhouette stamps, she had some lovely cards and techniques. Some of which I am eager to have a go at.
Now onto your lovely challenge cards..........
Lilian's card above is a beautiful version of this weeks 'Sketch' challenge, with the three gorgeous 'Foxgloves' (i think) and the die cut border with the sentiment.
Such a pretty card, that looks almost hand painted. Your cards are always stunning Lilian.
Thank you so much for taking part.
Val has used a selection of patterned paper that work beautifully to create the background of her card, the focal point is that pretty 'Gorjuss' topper that Val has framed with a die cut. Those dainty little flowers are the perfect finishing touch to your card Val, thank you so much for taking part.
Margaret has used the Stampin Up 'Touches of Texture' stamp to create the three sections of the Sketch challenge this week, it works beautifully with those lovely flowers Margaret. The matting and layering you have done really gives a fantastic finish to the card, It's fantastic Margaret, thank you so much for taking part.
Brenda has used her new Paper pad to create this beautiful Challenge Card, matting the patterned paper flags onto the pink makes the really stand out from the background, it's such a pretty pink too. I love the butterfly with its patterned background too, it looks so delicate. Such a lovely layout and card Brenda, thank you so much for sharing it with us.
Lynda has used 3 coordinating papers to form her background, a simple piece of twine and ribbon embellish the card along with a topper that has been stamped to match the background, all in all a fantastic card Lynda. thank you so much for taking part.
Karen has used the resist technique to create her background, I love the colours you have used over the top, I will add Karen's description here......
"Hope this is ok for challenge It’s another sketch but also used two things from the tic tac toe - resist technique and twine
The resist technique is an oldie ironing embossed wax paper between two pieces of gloss card (cheap photo paper) to transfer the wax I smooshed it through Pixie Powders.
A lovely bright card, it reminds me of Spring!
Thank you Karen for taking part this week.
Thank you so much ladies for taking part this week, you are all amazing!
Have a lovely Sunday
Love and hugs
