Two to Share

 I certainly seem to be having a run on making this style of card at the moment and I've made two very similar ones, both inspired by a YouTube demonstration from the talented Jo Rice.  I have the Forest Inn stamp which she used but sadly not the poppies so had to improvise.  I started by stamping two of the toadstools onto watercolour card - one was coloured using Inktense pencils and a water brush and the other with Polychromos pencils (no water needed).  Both of these cards are more of a CAS style than many of my designs which are often done on Gelli plate backgrounds - I like both styles and would find it difficult to decide which method I prefer.  Depends how the mood takes me I suppose😉.  Think I will have to get back to clearing my desk again and using up some of the 'stuff' which seems to pile up when my attention is elsewhere - Either these bits breed or someone is scattering leftovers 🤣🤣

  6. wow! More Lavinia loveliness from you. These are both terrific.

  7. More prettiness here Val and I particularly love the way you have done the background stencilling across the card, and all is so harmonious with the limited palette of colours you have used..beautiful. x
