Circles Revisited


When I tried the technique recently using some die cut circles I was left with two spare half circle motifs so I've put them together in a slightly different way and made another card straight away rather than popping them into an oddments box.  This time I've used some butterfly design paper and a fussy cut butterfly all in colours to tone with the circles.  Some Wink of Stella was applied to the butterfly but this doesn't show up too well in the picture.

Request Card

 A while back I was asked if I could make a card featuring a steam train and as luck would have it I remembered I had just the right stamp somewhere in my collection.  It is one which I've had for many years and it does come out to play now and then.  Image was coloured using pencils.  I unearthed some suitable text background paper and embossed a scrap of card for another layer.  The word and number were also part of the request.

Baby Girl

A baby card today for a change, always like to keep a few in hand just in case one is requested.  The pink papers were the remains of some given away with a magazine probably a couple of years ago and I had some bits and pieces of toning card in the scrap boxes to die cut the hearts.  The kangaroo and baby were stamped, coloured using alcohol pens and then fussy cut. Words were stamped onto a scrap of card then cut using a small circle punch.
