Oh what a busy bee I've been this week, I've actually managed to finish three cards so far. The first two I made for my neighbour, who's cards I make all the time. The first one I used glimmer spray on the background. I then stamped the main image with three different embosssing powders. The moon I just used the clear plastic ,that comes on the top of cd's. and painted bleach through the central hole. The branches were also bleached. The second I coloured the background with distress inks. Overstamped with a script then run it through the cuttlebug. The ribbon border was made in my cuttlebug and also the swirl. The main image was stamped onto a distressed piece of card. It was sten painted shimmer paints. The next page is a spellbinders pendant cut on the cuttlebug.

The last card is just a quick card I made for in my box. I stamped Daisy which I borrowed from my friend. We had a night together last week just stamping lots of images. I coloured with Pro markers which were also borrowed . I'd never used them before, but I think they are great. I then coloured around with distress inks.


  1. Fabulous cards - amazing all the techniques you do, and your Daisy looks as though you have been colouring for years - you did it perfectly

  2. These cards are all gorgeous Chris but I do love the first one. I keep wanting to have a go at bleaching but somehow never seem to get chance. It's so effective on your card.

    You've made a lovely job of colouring Daisy too.

  3. These are all scrummy! My favorties are the first 2, I bet your neighbour was delighted with them.

  4. You have been busy! Love all of these, they are all so different too, the first one is elegant and rich, then the glimmer mist beauties and finishing up with that adorable coloured Daisy - wow!
