Hi there and welcome. It's a gorgeous sunny day in Dublin - just perfect for my card today.
Prompted by the current challenge at 'Frilly & Funkie' I've finally sprung some of my flower dies to action. I've borrowed the card style from the wonderful Dorota whose blog I love. I havn't come near her standards but it's a start!
Papers: Maja Design 'Vintage Summer Basics' and some Indian handmade cotton / tissue papers for alternative texture and smaller buds
Dies: Joy Crafts - '6002-0156', MFT 'Rolled Scallop flower', 'Mini Rolled Roses', 'Mini Royal Roses', Magnolia 'Rose Leaf', Cheery Lynn ' Mini Fanciful Flourish' and Spellbinders 'Fancy Trelllis'
Inks: Distress Inks - 'Worn Lipstick', 'Victorian Velvet', 'Tea Dye', 'Brushed Corduroy' and some Bobby Brown blusher
Mists and Drops: Perfect pearls mist, Waco Pearl Maker Pen for drops and Snow-Tex
Stencil: The Crafter's Workshop 'Damask' using Wendy Vecchi texture paste
Other: Used my new sewing machine from Ikea that's a little humdinger so far. Pearls and lace from stash.
Thank-you to the lovely Jennie for her terrific flower tutorials. I followed her instructions here for the flower on extreme left and am very pleased with result (a rare event!).
Thank-you so much for visiting. May the sun shine on you too!
