Good morning all - what's happened to all the lovely sunshine?? The sun has certainly got his hat on and his boots and overcoat 'cause I haven't seen him in a day or two!! I went to the Garden Centre yesterday and they had bedding plants out I thought that was a bit dicey as I'm sure we've not seen the last of Jack Frost this year. I only went for cardstock anyway (there's a craft shop in the garden centre in case you are wondering).
Today's card is rather blue hence the title of my post today:
I wanted to do a card for the challenge over at Lili's Little Fairies and I started one at the weekend which is still lying half finished on my worktop but I wasn't pleased with it at all. So yesterday I decided roughly what I wanted to do and went to the haberdashery to get some of this lace which I love to bits - I have some already in beige. It's quite expensive but I only get 1/2 a metre and that will do for three cards. It's so fine and delicate really pretty and looks like antique lace IRL. The ribbon behind the image is gathered already so I knew what I wanted to do which is to make it look like an embroidery hoop. I have coloured with Prisma Pencils and the glitter is Art Institute which looks so good IRL really sparkly!! The papers are by Nitwits and I have paper distressed the pattern one behind the image. I have cut and matted the image with Spellbinders. The base for the flower and the butterfly are my new Doohickey dies and the flower is by Wild Orchid.
